Happy Ishtar
So, will you have lots of sex this weekend?


Ishtar, the Assyrian and Babylonian goddess of sex and fertility will approve.

Her symbols (the egg and the bunny) are still the focus points of Ishtar (pronounced Easter).

Have a great celebration! Big Grin

RE: Happy Ishtar
Well, I'm off to a decent start Drinking Beverage happy Ishtar to you as well, Dom!

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

interesting discussion in the Talk section of the Easter Wiki page, which appears to be a favorite target of Lying For Jeebus propagandists.

Wouldn't count on them sharing views on safe sex though. Consider

Lovebugs...

Apparently Ishtar was the wrong goddess to attach the Easter thing to.

I also did not read this thread so I don't know if that was covered or it was a joke to begin with or what.

“You see… sometimes life gives you lemons. And when that happens… you need to find some spell that makes lemons explode, because lemons are terrible. I only ate them once and I can say with certainty they are the worst fruit. If life gave me lemons, I would view it as nothing short of a declaration of war."

RE: Happy Ishtar
Went to the bank yesterday and the chatty teller asked me what I was going to do for Easter.

Told her I was going to celebrate it in The Traditional Way.

Heh.
