The latest Jesus and Mo strip, called “code”, is based on a Mirror article about a new fracas in Britain. It seems that Cadbury, the confectionary company, dropped the word “Easter” from ads for its annual “Easter egg hunt,” in which Cadbury eggs are sequestered at various Natiinal Trust sites throughout Britain, with clues given to their location.

“I think the stance they [Cadbury? National Turst? Both?] have taken is absolutely ridiculous.
“I don’t know what they are thinking about frankly.”
“Easter’s very important. It’s important to me. It’s a very important festival for the Christian faith for millions across the world.
