It takes you 6 seconds to read all of this, 0.3 seconds to look at the egg, 0.2 seconds to click it, 3 seconds to read it's description, 1 second to exit out the page, and 10 seconds to forget it ever happened. :3
OMG this made my day Never liked creepers but I couldn't imagine MC without them. They are just...well they just HAVE to be there. Whoever doesn't want them to blow up their stuff can just turn mob-griefing off with cheats or an NBTeditor. Anyways this theory works pretty good with my own theory of creeper beeing some sort of mossy plant Actually had that theory when I first stumbled upon that quote of Notch Also explained this way the Creeper totally fits into the Minecraft Theme XDDD
If you're willing to cheat a little, you could turn off mob griefing with the /gamerule command to stop them from blowing up blocks.
Also, this is just my opinion, but I actually do like creepers a lot. Minecraft would be way too easy without them.
I always use gamerules, it helps me from getting annoyed or getting me so mad, I end up avoiding minecraft for a week or more.
"everyone's favorite green monster"? Who is this "everyone"? Frankly, I wish they either remove them from the game entirely or give us the option to disable them. I could happily play Minecraft for many more years without ever seeing another creeper again.
They might not be cute and cuddly but they are a icon of Minecraft. It would not make sense to just take them out of the game completely.
P.S. You can go on peaceful mode if you don't like mobs.
