So here we have two pink, rather menacing children looming over giant Easter eggs. The girl’s eyes, in particular, are quite terrifying. She is on the hunt! I am not sure how they are planning to get those enormous eggs into that small Easter basket. The girl probably has a little axe in her pocket though. That’d work.
The little pink rabbit in the green hula skirt* is trying to sneak away unnoticed. He’s a lot smarter than all those chocolate bunnies and jelly candies, who seem to be frozen in place. He knows he’d better get out of there pronto.
*It is just grass he is supposed to be standing on, I know. But it is more fun to think of it as a hula skirt.

Holiday bonus: a classic episode of Untalkative Bunny, starring a different kind of Pink Menace – and it’s even funnier if you have ever watched children’s TV, especially the Teletubbies!
