An Easter skeptic

When Judy McKeehan's oldest son was 4, he decided that he didn't believe in the Easter bunny.

“You can't tell me that a bunny hops all over the world leaving baskets of eggs and candy,” he said.

So the boy's mom asked him. Who did he think did that?

He was ready with an answer. “A man in a bunny suit, of course.”

What’s your perspective on Easter?

A) I view it as a religious occasion, of course.

B) It's a chance to go to church and see if there is anything around here that can get people to dress up. 

C) I think it has something to do with pagan rites of spring.

D) Chocolate bunnies, et cetera.

E) It is a ham-based holiday.

F) It's when nitwits give live baby animals to small children as if these gifts are toys.

G) Isn't that when the Mariners are usually mathematically eliminated?

H) I know it is sponsored by Legoland. 

I) Other.
