From the Lansdale Borough web site (www.lansdale.org):
Each spring, the Easter Bunny makes its annual visit to White's Road Park to greet the children and their families on hand for our annual Egg Hunt. Over 300 children participate in the hunt each year as they romp through the park in search of hidden plastic eggs. Many children win certificates or prizes donated by local merchants and all children receive an assortment of treats for participating. The Egg Hunt is open to Borough children ages three through eight. Pre-registration is required. For information call 215-361-8352.
And now for a little Easter humor:
A man was blissfully driving along the highway, when he saw the
Easter Bunny hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid
hitting the Bunny, but unfortunately the rabbit jumped in front of his car
and was hit. The basket of eggs went flying all over the place. Candy, too.
The driver, being a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulled
over to the side of the road, and got out to see what had become of
the Bunny carrying the basket. Much to his dismay, the colorful Bunny was dead.
The driver felt guilty and began to cry.
A woman driving down the same highway saw the man crying on the side
of the road and pulled over. She stepped out of her car and asked the
man what was wrong.
"I feel terrible," he explained, "I accidentally hit the Easter Bunny
and killed it. What should I do?"
The woman told the man not to worry. She knew exactly what to do. She
went to her car trunk, and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to
the limp, dead Bunny, and sprayed the entire contents of the can
onto the little furry animal.
Miraculously the Easter Bunny came to back life, jumped up, picked up
the spilled eggs and candy, waved its paw at the two humans and
hopped on down the road. 50 yards away the Easter Bunny stopped, turned
around, waved and hopped on down the road another 50 yards, turned, waved,
hopped another 50 yards and waved again!!!!
The man was astonished. He said to the woman, "What in heaven's name
is in your spray can?" The woman turned the can around so that the man
could read the label. It said:
"Hair spray. Restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave."
