Bite The Bunny

I need to hurry and finish my stupid chocolate bunny so I can lose this 20 lbs. Easter did not help my cause at all. However, as much as I want to eat my bunny, let me say that the active word here is *I*. I don’t want anyone else eating him. I bought myself a dark chocolate bunny this year. I LOVE Dark Chocolate. Yes, my friends, a good dark chocolate is the way to my heart.

I’m a start with the ears kinda gal and as of last night, I had eaten down to his nose. I noticed this morning that someone had taken a knife to his head and finished off the lower half of his jaw/head. I don’t take knife to bunny… I take teeth to bunny. I had to GENTLY remind my spouse today that he has his own daggum bunny and to quit eating mine.

I may have to hide him. Bunny, that is.

And speaking of chocolate bunnies, when my husband’s family came over for Easter, his brother picked up my bunny and said, “Wait, did you just open the package and eat it right out of the package?” I looked at him like he was stupid and said, “Uhhhh… Of course.”

I just slit the top open, push the ears out of the bag, or if he comes in foil, I peel the foil down, and then eat the ears.

My brother in law seemed to be appalled by this. He asked if he could have some of my bunny and I replied, “Sure, but my teeth have been all over his head, maybe you should eat the butt.” So… he took a knife to the butt. Now I know he was being nice, cutting my bunny since it’s mine and not wanting to get his germs on it, but after seeing knife marks on my bunny’s neck today, I have come to the conclusion that my husban'ds family are knife wielding bunny cutters.

Is this normal? Or am I? I just thought one bit the bunny when one saw fit.

So the status of my bunny now is, no head, no arms, the basket on his back has been gnawed off and I am now slowly working down his torso… and of course his tail is gone since I gave it up to my brother in law.

Nope, using a knife is not normal, you have to use your teeth. That way little bits crack off, and when you get to the bottom of the bunny or egg, you have a little pile of yummy chocolate bits to have as a bonus!

You saying that they used a knife made me think of that Seinfeld episode where people started to eat chocolate bars with a knife and fork. As far as I'm concerned if it is a choccy of any sort, chomp into the damn thing!

Definitely teeth. Unless 'sharing'. I'm with you on starting at the ears. I may have to stop by Hoffman's and get me a dark chocolate bunny as I did not get a bunny this year.

I wouldn't know. I'm not a huge chocolate fan so I don't eat chocolate bunnies. (Ducking thrown objects) WHAT!?!?

As I read this, I kept imagining that "bunny" was a euphemism for something, and was just laughing my ass off the whole way through :-)

I'm still getting over the fact that there is even anything left of that poor little bunny.

When I eat chocolate, no matter what the portion size, it is SO GONE! There would be none of this dickering over who gets to cut off the butt with a knife. There simply wouldn't be anything left at all to work with . . .

Status on bunny: lower body only. He's almost history. I'm hiding him. I found more knife marks on him this morning.
