To folks just waking up expecting it to be Easter Sunday, and to the rest of you waking up, but who perhaps passed away some time ago—now that’s, GULP, a scary thought—boy are you all in for a surprise today.
It’s APRIL FOOLS DAY!
Gotcha! Unless, of course, you happen to be one of the zombies I just mentioned. In which case, the shoe may soon be on the other foot—my foot.
Cadavers, what merry pranksters they are. Seems there’s nothing they won’t do for a laugh.
Including, threatening to track down a ridiculous blogger for thoughtlessly playing an April Fools joke on them. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha…(nervous laughter)
Ahem, but, changing the subject completely.
I’m willing to bet you’re a lot like me (NO REALLY) no doubt feelling that the best April Fools jokes are those we never see coming.
Like me doing this, my first QUALITY post in over four months—or any month for that matter, and on Easter Sunday no less.
But not just any Easter Sunday, but an April Fools Easter Sunday.
And what if I were to tell you that there’s this big white fluffy bunny that loves to go around hiding COLORFUL EGGS for kids to find on Easter Sunday—even for we big kids? Would you believe me?
No, really, there really is a big bunny who does that sort of thing!
And I’m not talking about your average garden variety cottontail either, but a real honest to goodness giant, mythical, furry floppy eared, Easter Bunny.
You know…A REAL POOKA.
Now sometimes this bunny leaves a little surprise hiding inside the eggs. Usually it’s a little something called—real plastic grass.
But, most of the time you’ll find a piece of chocolate in there, or a small toy. And on some occasions, even a hard-boiled egg—which may have sat in the sun a little too long.
I was sick for a week after eating that one.
I know, I know, but if we’re going to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth—even if it means stretching the truth—then we musn’t hold back from telling a whole untruth, right?
Which leads me to this next bit.
Did you know that the Easter Bunny has been known to leave an egg stuffed with money? Its true.
At first, he’d start you out with just a few coins here and there. However, eventually he worked his way up to leaving me wadded up dollar bills.
Then, one year, I found an egg during an Easter egg hunt that had a couple million dollars stuffed inside!
I screamed “Hey ma, look what the Easter Bunny left me!”
Naturally, I was arrested on the spot and taken into custody for lying—by my mom! Shortly, thereafter, my mom (and the 2 million dollars) skipped town.
Years later, after the Easter Bunny her tracked down, she was arrested for embezzelment of holiday funds. She’s currently serving a life sentence in the state pen—one where they have you go in and feed and clean up after the rabbits.
Of course, not every Easter egg hunt has the same sort of happy ending.
For instance, this year I woke up to a jewel encrusted Faberge egg—the cost of which, may set the Easter Bunny back for years. But, if he thinks I’m going to return it…
Happy Easter everyone.
