April 12 1916 AD: Chocolate Egg

An event which is to shape the nation and indeed the world for generations to come takes place when a hen lays a chocolate egg in Swords. The hen’s owner, a modest Dublin farmer, attempts to hide the abomination from the eyes of Her Majesty’s Egg Inspector Royal by wrapping it in shiny paper and trying to pass it off as a rebel explosive device. However Lieut-Colonel Richard Albumen-Hallmark is not fooled and goes on to become a successful confectioner in the colonies.
