i can has bunny

What is the world coming to?  Has the economic meltdown driven us to paranoia?  Fear?  Are retailers too spooked to order sufficient holiday inventory?  It’s a sorry state of events when i can’t do my usual “buy easter candy on easter morning while everyone else is at church” routine…

Making the trek to the local grocery store this morning, i was stunned to discover empty shelves.  Some cheap plastic toys and generic jelly beans.  There was nothing but some Opera Cream Crosses.  Seriously.  Jesus died so children could eat the symbol of the cross?

This is my body.  Eat me. (paraphrased...)

There was NOTHING even remotely easter-ish left.  No Reese’s eggs, no Cadbury cream filled decadence, no hollow chocolate bunnies with cute faces that make you feel guilty when you chew them to shreds…  Not a PEEP to be found!  When did Peeps get popular?

Never one to throw in the towel, i had to improvise.  Granted, this only works because my children have pretty much seen it all, and share my twisted outlook.  Oh, and they’re in their 20’s – even i probably wouldn’t have done this when they were young.  Bottom line?  It’ll get eaten…

  1. don – it was either that, or craft basket items from what’s in the fridge. which would have included a diet coke, expired yogurt and some fuzzy strawberries…

    silverstar – i’m bummed about missing the peeps. we rarely ate them, mostly just defiled their little marshmallow bodies… like the travelogue!

    jimmy – i’d have probably bought the choco-cross if it had had the body on it. i mean, THAT’S going to start conversation at the office!

    DP – yes, they are…. um…. right… products used for…. um…. oh, you know.

    kyknoord – i have patterned my life after the teachings of Krusty the Klown…

    dolce – you know you want one…

    stephanie – really. it isn’t even that heavenly chocolate. just the cheap shit that tastes like dust. hmmm…

    archie – tasty AND practical! that’s me!

  2. Your improvisation skills will definitely come in handy as you’ve apparently now seen first hand the road that our society is on. Don’t throw the “ears” away, though, since that may be the next item that is not be found on drugstore shelves….

  3. rob – i can use them for barter! Great idea! won’t throw them all away… more justification for my pack rat tendencies!

    ginny – “genius and a visionary”? i thought i was just “lazy and a bad mother”?

    unbearable banishment – just another annoying service we provide here at The Park! Screwing up goodness for over a year now…

    renal failure – you know, i do suspect that the combination may be somewhat original. no bonnet… just boots… sorry…

    imeantno – you got peeps? i’m your chariot, baybee!

    manuel – “the lapdance is always better when the stripper is crying”… not sure about the customer…

  4. @uncle keith – goin’ 90 i ain’t scary, cuz i gots the virgin mary, tellin’ me that i won’t go ta hell!

    @rassles – i suppose if you’re against ‘eating anything with a face’, then the crosses win out. i’m going to search for one with the jeebus attached. or perhaps next year? make my own, with a little “jeebus peep” nailed to it…
