Porcupine's Quill
April 12, 2020


News Item:  Today is Easter Sunday.

Hey, that's a funny guy living in that big white house.

Why, what happened?

What happened!  What happened ... he's very rude ...

Why, what did he do?

He said he'd grab me by the tail, swing me around and throw me over the fence
unless ... why that would break all my eggs ...

Unless what?  What did he want?

My beautiful eggs, and he wanted cheeseburgers.


Yes, that's what he wanted.  I said I didn't carry cheeseburgers, and eggs were a
symbol of fertility.  He said he didn't want fertility.  He wanted CHEESEBURGERS  --
shouting it out.

But you don't carry cheeseburgers ...

Tell him that!  Then he accused me of being a fake saying he'd never seen a bunny
like me.  I said I was really a hare, you know, 'hase' in German.

What did he say then?

He said I was some kind of spy and threatened to have me arrested unless ...

Unless what?

Unless I brought him a cheeseburger.  What am I to do?

Better hop over and get him a cheeseburger, I guess ...
