Big Bunny Mistake: Easter Bunny Delivers Plagues in Passover Confusion
Reports show a pattern of confusion due to Passover and Easter occurring on the same weekend. It seems the Easter Bunny, known for hiding eggs and delivering baskets full of candy, sometimes leaves homes with flails.
“Our little girl was so excited to see what the Easter bunny left her. When she ran to the kitchen table, all she found was a basket full of grasshoppers.
This local family was far from the only one affected by the error pattern. One household reported a yard full of multicolored frogs; another discovered that all of his plastic Easter eggs were filled with flies. Reports of livestock diseases and children affected by lice have also increased.
“We don’t know what was in those baskets, but our children have never had such horrible boils.”
Several families also reported baskets full of rainwater. Considering the other mishaps, it’s assumed the contents were intended to be hail – yet another blight.
“It’s so disappointing that this holiday celebrating the joy of Jesus’ death and resurrection has been marred by an Easter Bunny blunder that has harmed kids just excited about candy and egg hunts. “
While current experts attribute this to a clerical error or similar accident due to the coincidence of the holidays, others struggle to interpret a possible message from God. Since plagues are a major part of the Exodus story as punishments created by God to free the Israelites from Egyptian rule, many of these theories attempt to link those who received baskets plague and current world events.
As gruesome as those pest baskets are, parents are so far grateful the Easter Bunny doesn’t appear to have killed any firstborns. However, the situation is changing and it may only be a matter of time.
