Happy Rabbits-Shitting-Jellybeans Day, world. I've got an earth-shattering report to break.

In 1993, Easter egg dye company PAAS slapped the Mario Paint license on a limited-run Easter egg decorating kit. Aaaaaaand... yeah. But hey! It also came with some Zelda mini cardboard standees and a tiny treasure chest for egg-hunting fun!

It's hilarious that such a thing exists. I know that Nintendo pimps its properties harder than a Tijuana hooker. We've gotten cereal, soda, TV shows, candy, dolls, clothing, furniture, novelty phones (I actually owned one of these), hotel and airline gaming rentals, and so on. But an Easter egg decorating kit?

Wow.

[Much love, Heidi!]

Across the Arkham titles, the developers have included at least two incredibly well-hidden easter eggs. Who could forget the one in Arkham Asylum that was so stashed away that Rocksteady itself had to reveal i...more
