A peep of a cottontail

-A A +A
By John Pawlak

There’s an old joke about a farm boy who sneaks into the chicken coop one night and paints all the eggs different bright colors.
 The next morning when the rooster walks in, he sees all the colored eggs.  The rooster promptly storms outside the coop and kills the peacock.
Easter is a fascinating holiday, full of tradition, folklore and calories.  Despite its religious significance, its history is entrenched in myth and ritual, the most prominent of course being a Harvey-like rabbit that sneaks into your house at night to leave chocolate and eggs for your kids.  
Kind of like that creepy old guy up north who knows when they’re sleeping, knows when they’re awake.
 Of course, Easter holds deep meanings and convictions for many people.  It’s a wonderful time for the family to get together, feast on the Easter ham or Easter lamb (anyone up for Easter tofurkey?), and enjoy each other’s company.  It’s also a time for high fructose corn syrup makers to smile as they watch a nation gorge itself on processed sugar infused imitation chocolate.
