Have you ever wondered why there’s a tradition of an Easter Bunny that leaves eggs and candy for children? Is that believable? Surely there’s a better way.
I came across an article on this issue that makes a lot of sense: replace the Easter Bunny with an Easter Ninja. Now, for those stuck in the rut of tradition, this may seem absurd. But you should read the article, because it really does make a lot of sense. Plus, it’s humorous. And as he explains, not only would it be better for children, but a ninja is much cooler than a bunny, along with being much more believable.
Here’s a quick preview:
Ladies and gentlemen, say goodbye to the Easter Bunny, and say hello to the Easter Ninja! The Easter Ninja’s modus operandi is similar to that of the bunny, i.e. he breaks into your house and leaves baskets of eggs and candy. The only difference is instead of leaving carrots for the bunny, children leave carefully constructed booby traps that the Easter Ninja must negotiate without setting off to fill their baskets. Everyone knows thwarting traps makes ninjas happy, so the Easter Ninja will reward clever children with baskets of eggs and Easter Ninja shaped chocolates. ~ Chris Carlisle

I’m thinking we should start a petition to make this happen. Spread the word!
