Bunnny with an Attitude


The Attitude Adjuster

 

“INCOMING!!!!”

 

Bob had just gotten the G out when the missile with the chipped blue coloring smashed into the door inches away from Lisa.

 

“Ewwww, What is that smell? Mustard gas?”

 

“No Lisa, that is the unmistaken odor of Sulphur. We’ve been egged!”

 

Indeed, on the cement below where the ‘bomb’ had hit was the broken shells of what appeared to be, of all things, an Easter egg! Who has been saving their eggs this long? It was the middle of July and the town was going through an epidemic of rotten eggs and they had all been decorated.

 

Meanwhile, across town, a mother is concerned. Her youngest has not returned home.

 

“What’s with that boy? Ever since Georgy saw that picture in the paper, he’s been acting like a total stranger. I am going to have a talk with his father when he gets back from his food run.”

 

Toonis used to be such a quiet place. There was no crime to speak of, but lately, there had been a rash of egg throwing. No one could figure it out. What made it so odd was that it was Easter eggs flying in July! Who would save them that long? And why?

 

Georgy’s dad got home first.

 

“PC, you have got to talk to your youngest. He has been acting real strange lately.”

 

“Yes, I know. He seems to be gone a lot lately also. I’ll talk to him when he gets home.”

 

About an hour later, Georgy wandered in. He looked like he had been ‘rode hard and put away wet’. Momma sent him to bed. In his condition talking would have been useless. Meanwhile PC, as momma called him, went back to his desk to get ready for the upcoming season. Although he only worked out of the home one day a year, it took a lot of preparation.

 

“Momma!!!”

 

“Yes?”

 

“Has Georgy been using this computer? I’ve told all the kids that I can’t have them playing in here, there are a lot of names and address’s and I can’t lose them!”

 

“Well, I heard the printer going the other day, but I thought it was you in here. I was fixing supper and not really paying much attention.”

 

The next day, Georgy and his sisters and brother (ten sisters, one brother), were heading out to play. Momma stopped him and told him his dad wanted to speak to him in the den. Poor Georgy, he looked like he had just lost his last friend. He knew what papa wanted. It had to come out sometime.

 

“Georgy, have you been playing on this computer? You know I need it for work.”

 

“Sorry Papa. I just needed a copy of the deliveries.”

 

“Why georgy? Why do you need to know who I deliver to? You’re too young to take over the business.”

 

“I don’t want to take it over. I saw this picture in the paper and I got very upset. Every year you hand out all this chocolate and the first thing those people do is bite off the ears! It’s not right! We rabbits need our ears, why do they do that? Since they can’t understand me when I talk, I only had one way to get my message across. I’ve been saving those eggs for a long time.”

 

Pc, or as we know him, Peter Cottontail, typed up a news release explaining that the egg thrower was just trying to convince people not to bite the ears off the chocolate Easter bunnies.

  1. I never thought about it,but I think you are right. People do eat the ears first.
    I haven’t bought a chocolate bunny in about twenty years. I forgot what they taste like.
    Maybe I’ll try a bunny and jelly beans again.

  3. You are the ultimate story teller. I’m going to buy the biggest chocolate bunny I can find and eat the ears in your honor. 🙂

  6. Eggsellent Easter Eggs story, sire! Loved it. But me? I always ate the bunny tail first … then the ears.

    But then I was a weird kid, too …

  7. I guess people feel less guilty by biting off the years, and saying to themselves they’ll stop at that. Of course, they don’t. (g)
