The Easter Bunny Blues
Contrary to popular fiction, there is more than one Easter Bunny.
In fact there are three. There’s Peter, Paul and your token female, Penelope. All three want to throw in the towel on the whole Easter Bunny business. After all, who really cares anymore if there’s an Easter Bunny as long as there’s an Easter egg hunt? The whole marketing campaign behind the egg thing is not about the long-in-the-tooth threesome, but about another kind of tooth. A sweet tooth.
A few years back Peter convinced the other two bunnies to hold a strategic planning meeting where they discussed the relevance of their hard won position in today’s world.
Should they expand their operation by becoming more like Santa Claus and ride an activity appropriate conveyance as they hid the eggs? What about an advertising campaign around an egg-mobile complete with junior bunnies to pull the conveyance? They would then have a ready-made group of potential candidates to take their job when they retired. And even more to the point, they’d have underlings to add grandeur to their exalted position as the Easter Bunny Trio.
Could they raise their image by taking to the skies like Santa? Or should they join the paranormal phenomenon and become super glider bunnies traveling the underworld at light speed?
Like all strategic planning sessions, many recommendations were made, including but not limited to changing the Easter egg hunt into a Barbie doll hunt, and cross marketing with Barbie’s handlers; hiring more hens to lay more eggs and promote an egg hunt twice yearly not just on Easter.
Overhaul the Easter Bunny’s wardrobe by hiring Lady GaGa to oversee the selection; retire the existing three with a huge pension and forget the whole Easter Bunny thing.
As of this moment, there has been no decision on what to do about the Easter Bunny, and once again the dear old bunnies are out there looking for fresh places to hide eggs. If you have suggestions on egg hiding locales, or if you’d like to volunteer to drive the trio around, please sign up here.
