MEMPHIS, April 9 (UPI) -- Memphis police said an Easter egg hunt ended with a brawl between two families and a woman's arrest for taking a hammer to a man's head.

Police said the man argued with Annette Pearson, 43, Sunday because he thought she was giving the children too much help finding the grand prize golden egg containing $7, The Memphis Commercial Appeal reported Monday.

The families broke into violence after the man slapped the woman twice and police said Pearson retrieved a claw hammer from her house and struck the man in the head, leaving a wound that required four staples.

Pearson was charged with felony aggravated assault and taken to Shelby County's Jail East for women in lieu of $20,000 bond.

Going to Easter egg hunts can be a method of survival in Barry’s Hopey/Changey Amerika.

A man and his wife owned a very special goose. Every day the goose would lay a golden egg, which made the couple very rich.

“Just think,” said the man’s wife, “If we could have all the golden eggs that are inside the goose, we could be richer much faster.”

“You’re right,” said her husband, “We wouldn’t have to wait for the goose to lay her egg every day.”

So, the couple killed the goose and cut her open, only to find that she was just like every other goose. She had no golden eggs inside of her at all, and they had no more golden eggs.

Next year people ought to stand around for this egg hunt and toss eggs at the participants.

Better yet, cancel all of them. The greed and sloth has won the day in Amerika.

Some folks think you have to be wealthy to be greedy.

Most of the greed resides at the lower end of the chain anymore. May they rot along with their eggs.
