    They are definitely misleading the kids when they are calling egg-shaped things 'spheres'. That'll screw 'em up good! I'm glad the kids knew they were Easter eggs though, and not spring spheres........

    I'm not good at geometry. But if you're gonna go for something moronic, at least leave the name of it in the term.

    The 'politically correct" weirdos in this country never cease to amaze me.

    A couple of years ago my department wanted to have a Christmas party. Then one person said they would not go if we used the name Christmas, so the they changed the name to a winter fest party. Well to say the least I did not attend out of protest along with several other people. There have been no parties since then.

    Seattle school renames Easter eggs 'Spring Spheres'

    A sophomore at a local private high school thinks an effort to make Easter politically correct is ridiculous.

    Jessica, 16, told KIRO Radio's Dori Monson Show that a week before spring break, the students commit to a week-long community service project. She decided to volunteer in a third grade class at a public school, which she would like to remain nameless.

    "At the end of the week I had an idea to fill little plastic eggs with treats and jelly beans and other candy, but I was kind of unsure how the teacher would feel about that," Jessica said.

    She was concerned how the teacher might react to the eggs after of a meeting earlier in the week where she learned about "their abstract behavior rules."

    "I went to the teacher to get her approval and she wanted to ask the administration to see if it was okay," Jessica explained. "She said that I could do it as long as I called this treat 'spring spheres.' I couldn't call them Easter eggs."

    Rather than question the decision, Jessica opted to "roll with it." But the third graders had other ideas.

    "When I took them out of the bag, the teacher said, 'Oh look, spring spheres' and all the kids were like 'Wow, Easter eggs.' So they knew," Jessica said.

    The Seattle elementary school isn't the only government organization using spring over Easter. The city's parks department has removed Easter from all of its advertised egg hunts.
    In Seattle????? You don't say!
