The bored Easter bunny




Walking the mall, I found the Easter bunny all by his lonesome...not a kid in sight. He looked forlorn and very bored. When I stopped to take his picture, his fists came up and his foot shot out. I smiled and told him I would make him famous.

Later that same day, I came across the Easter bunny again. He was no longer in his rightful spot, but was out wandering the mall, stopping at store fronts to waggle his tail and big ears.

He was bored out of his mind!

Poor guy, I'd be bored too--fun captures! :-D

He may be bored, but, hey, he's famous. Nice bunny costume, nice photos.

LOL, great shots of humor!!!

Easter Bunny does not have the cache as the jolly old elf. Maybe he will see some action over the weekend. He needs a Mrs. Bunny.

Paula said...

Very well-dressed bunny but judging from the second photo, he appears to have a hare-trigger temper.

Irina said...

What a colorful images. Poor Mr. Bunny, he needs to go shopping.

I can understand that it might be a bit boring, and probably quite hot!??
Nice shots!

If you keep following, you'll get him smoking a cigarette, I'm sure!

Abraham said...

I can imagine. Not much to look at and nobody to talk to that speaks in "rabbit."

I don't think I'd be very happy to have my photo taken in an Easter Bunny suit either! Pooooor Bunny!

Nothing worse than a rabbit with too much time on his hands (paws?). 0 posts on the portal today.

Well you know what I mean. This is a funny series. I can see the headlines.....

"Bored Bunny unleashes mayhem in local mall"

Great captures !

Courtney said...

Haha nice find! I've never seen a sight like that before.

Lois said...

Maybe business will pick up for him a little closer to Easter!

Halcyon said...

I guess bunnies like to shop too! At least you didn't find him in Victoria's Secret!

Rose said...

I can't help but wonder what Lorelei would think...I know it will depend on her mood. Seems like when she is out, she is really outgoing, while if someone new comes into her space, she is a little bit shy.

How can bunnies be bored? I thought they were known for their tendency to engage in pleasurable pastimes.

cieldequimper said...

Lol, do you think that he made a lot of purchases whilst touring the mall? He doesn't appear to have any bags, poor thing!

JM said...

I wouldn't want his job... poor fellow! :-)

An Easter bunny's life must be tough, seriously...
God bless you!

Poor bunny, where are the kids? I love the comment by VP. Probably true.

Bibi said...

An Easter Bunny that KICKS? No sitting on his lap for me...or is it a she? 'It' is looking at a women's clothing store. But I imagine you spoke to 'him'. Maybe he's waiting for the Easter Bunnette inside the shop.

A very funny series: you're the best!!!

:-)

Lily Hydrangea said...

I am almost certain we have the same bunny & set up at our mall here on Long Island.
I'm glad you were there to help dispel some of this bunnies boredom.
I love the shot of him window shopping!

Renee said...

I know how he feels--nothing at 5-7-9 fits me either. That's as close as I go to the entrance as well. :)
