Ideas flew around like bats in a belfry; a rat? a mouse? a snake? a worm? Still even these animals would have no guarantee of survival. What about, said Tyler through a mouthful of greens, what about cockroaches? they can live in a wide range of environments and are even supposed to survive a nuclear holocaust. Sydney liked the idea, although she had been about to suggest a Dung Beetle, it too is found in a variety of habitats, including Antarctica and it could be depicted pushing an egg instead of it's dung ball.
However, the Spots soon realized that children might not like cockroaches or Dung Beetles, either, for that matter. Then, said Tyler, it has to be something all children love but that is unobtainable. Luckily there were still some greens left in the snack bowl. Munch, munch, munch....hmm what about the Easter Dinosaur?!! Suggested one or the other or both at once.
Here is the plan as seen by the Spots. Rabbits will continue to deliver eggs, after all it is a job they have held for untold generations and there are no dinosaurs. The sacrifice of doing the job and not getting credit is worth a lower publicity profile. All Easter paraphernalia can be changed to dinosaurs and this will certainly stimulate spending around Easter time, and supposedly that's good. Thousands of graphic designers, artists, printers and various manufacturers will have to hired to design all the new paraphernalia: result increased employment. The downside, of course, is that tons of it will end up in the landfill, but the same is true of Easter Bunny paraphernalia. What do other bunnies think about this? There remains, still, the problem of rabbit mistreatment during the rest of the year.......
