Easter dumb bunnies

Opposition Leader Barry O’Farrell said it was extraordinary for Mr Iemma to say he was replacing Mr Gibson with Mrs Perry because he wanted another woman in cabinet.

“It suggests that the decision to bypass Paul Gibson and appoint Barbara Perry has nothing to do with the allegations surrounding Paul Gibson,” Mr O’Farrell told reporters.

“That’s like saying the Easter Bunny’s got nothing to do with Easter.”

The Sydney Morning Herald

Uuuumm yeah … so remind me again what the Easter Bunny has to do with Easter anyway?

Seriously, I’d totally forgotten about the whole Easter Bunny thing. It was’t until I picked Skye up from school and one of the mums asked her whether the Easter Bunny was coming that I remembered. Skye just looked at her blankly for a second, dismissed it as just another odd things adults said and cheerfully changed the subject.

I'd much prefer to talk to the kids about Jesus dying and rising from the dead, and they're very happy to know that his death means they can know God. Frankly I'm not sure I can be bothered explaining to the kids how a rabbit with eggs relates to Jesus' death—especially when I've no idea how that works myself.

I'd much rather tell my kids the truth that some a silly myth.

And chocolate is always good, no matter what shape it comes in.

The truth of Jesus is always more fulfilling than Easter bunny deceptions. Maybe you should email that to Fatty O'Barrel MP :)
