Chocolate bunny suit

Handwritten page of a diary dated April 11, 1977

I thought I’d show up and he’d be able to go out discoing with me, like old times.

But it’s Easter tomorrow, he says, which is news to me … but, so what?

He says we have to decorate, which sounds to me like a quick thing, hide a few eggs after his kids go to bed and we’re outa here, right?

His wife comes in with a bunch of brown furry cloth and says she needs more time to sew the duck’s chocolate bunny suit, so she wants us to go out and string the lights. Lights? Is this Xmas? But indeedy, she has a string of lights shaped and colored like Easter eggs and we’re out there in the yard and I say, hey, don’t kids search for eggs in the morning, when the sun’s out? He says, well, they get very excited and they get up early. Barely dawn.

Wait a minute, did she say the chocolate bunny suit is for a duck?

  1. Why did the Easter bunny hide his Easter eggs?

    He didn’t want anybody to know that he had been fooling around with chickens.

    Bwaa ha ha ha !!

  2. A long time ago…I bought a big light up goose like that at a shop in NYC.
    My place in Chicago was on the first floor and had a big bay window.
    I had goose vignettes and costumes.
    Balloons and streamers hanging in the window and a party hat, bottle of hooch, and a noisemaker taped to goosie’s beak.
    Had his own pitchfork, horns, red cape, and tail for halloween.
    Did the easter bunny thing too.
    He was pretty popular back in the day.
