This is a smasher, really:
"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."In reality no one was fooled:
"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.And the reason is clear: how many third graders will grok the word "sphere"?
I propose "spring balls". It matches the tireless spirit of Political Correctness and its results, and hopefully it wouldn't be considered a (hidden) manifestation of male chauvinism.
And don't let me go on - about the Easter Bunny and its PC name...
