I canâ€™t help it. Every year this cheesy, cornball, politically correct, rodent gets top billing!
Look at him (herâ€¦whatever)! Whatâ€™s the fuss all about?! A few bites and itâ€™s gone! And who remembers him TWO SECONDS after Easter?! No one. Yet, every year he pulls off the worldâ€™s greatest double reverse! When he appears on the scene (right at about 3 seconds after Christmas is over) everyone all of the sudden takes a great interest in colored eggs and chocolate anythings andâ€¦what is it, exactly that he offers?!
He doesnâ€™t have any super powers.
Heâ€™s not even as cool as some of these lame, lesser known super powers I read about online today:
1. Crystal shield. A block of translucent crystal can be created out of thin air.
2. Plasma blast: The plasma character can expel the energy from his body <â€” Thatâ€™s just gross!
3. Plastic Man: He (get this) stretches. Isnâ€™t that, Elasticmanâ€™s power?
Need I go on? The point is, the Easter Bunny is NOTHING!
I know. I know. Iâ€™ve heard the weak attempts of Christians to
connect, stretch, completely transform, the Easter Bunny into some sort of Christian icon pointing the way to Christ, but theyâ€™re laughable.
Thatâ€™s like trying to connect Sanjaya to actual musical talent. Itâ€™s too much of a leap. It just canâ€™t be done!
Why not skip the meaningless detour and just go right to the message of our risen Lord?
Just a thought.
Oh, by the way. Someone asked if we are going to have an Easter Egg hunt this year.
I said the whole bunny thing was lame, but I still love chocolate! And the bottom-lineâ€¦whether I like it or not? People come out for these things and Iâ€™d wear my hair like Sanjaya if I knew it would cause people to come hear about the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.
But that doesnâ€™t mean Iâ€™d like it.
