Hey did you hear The Easter Bunny people were advised by the advertising people (they rule the Universe, you know) that perhaps its time to change up the name Easter Bunny to match the times. Top suggestions were Mr. E., E.B. and Big B. Apparently initials are in? E.B. was eliminated quickly. In a name recognition survey more people associated E. B. with an Ebola outbreak than with the ol’ Bunny. Big B elicited visions of chasing Big Foot through northwest forests. Lastly in the end The World Wide Wrestling folks snatched up Mr. E for the name of their next nefarious hero.
Boy Howdy, I am relieved. It’s important to have some unchanging anchors to hold ourselves in place, especially since evolving times are unfolding at warp speed. It won’t be long and the phrase Beam me up, Scottie will only bring on quizzical looks like cat’s pajamas and bee’s knees. So that’s why I am doing the Hip Hop with the Easter Bunny. For the time being he remains a beloved character of our collective cultural imagination. Hip Hip Hop Hooray!
So I am putting a quarter in the jukebox—my salute to the darling tea pot by the U.K. company Teapottery— relaxing and having a cuppa of Wild Goose Tea—-oh yeah and a couple Cadbury eggs too.
This Teapottery teapot is available for purchase. See Teaware
