Today is Easter, the day I celebrate horrible Easter Bunny photos while telling myself that this year, I will not eat another jelly bean until Halloween. So let’s fire this up. The Easter Bunny or Easter Rabbit is a character depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs. The Easter Bunny is sometimes depicted with clothes. In legend, the creature carries colored eggs in his basket, candy and sometimes also toys to the homes of children, and as such shows similarities to Santa Claus, as they both bring gifts to children on the night before their respective holiday. It was first mentioned in Georg Franck von Frankenau‘s De ovis paschalibus (About Easter Eggs) in 1682 referring to an Alsace tradition of an Easter Hare bringing Easter Eggs.
These Easter Bunnies are not that kind. The Easter Bunnies pictured below are of the half-assed shopping mall or pastor’s son in a rented costume variety. Some are frighteningly sinister, some do not even appear to be any sort of rabbit, and some are so pathetically bad, they get and F for effort because there was none.
