    Maine co. makes wooden Easter eggs for White House - Yahoo! News

    A Maine company is supplying wooden keepsake Easter eggs that will take center stage at Monday's 134th annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

    For the sixth straight year, the eggs are being manufactured by Wells Wood Turning & Finishing Inc., a wood products company in the central Maine town of Buckfield.

    The eggs are made of birch and painted yellow, blue, purple and green. This year's eggs show a cartoon image of a bunny swiveling a hula hoop inside a seal that says White House Easter Egg Roll 2012. The signatures of President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are stamped on the back.

    This year's batch also includes a custom red egg showing Bo, the Obama family dog, with his paw print on the other side.

    Wells Wood Turning manufactured 85,000 of the eggs this year, said co-owner Alan Chesney. The eggs are included in gift bags that are given to children at the Easter Egg Roll on the White House lawn.

    We could have used that money buy a small fraction of a smart bomb, now there's money well spent.

    I'm sorry, but is this thread a joke?

    I honestly can't tell.

    A sick joke, they really would cancel a charming national tradition and give the money to billionaires so their children can have solid platinum Easter eggs in their designer Vuitton baskets.

    Ya know what, Good for the president for doing something that will make the children happy. It is a white house tradition...and not one i think that should not be given up.


    The are American made eggs so extra points for that.



    And in the grand scheme of things.... i would rather pay for Easter eggs for the kids.....then muffin and coffee of meetings.
