RANCHO MIRAGE, CA – A six foot tall rabbit was seen leaving the Betty Ford Clinic this week. Is the Easter Bunny trying to clean up before his big day?Camped outside the clinic’s entrance, reporters snapped pictures of a six foot tall rabbit leaving at 3am this Tuesday. A positive identification was not possible as the giant rabbit was wearing a disguise.
Was this the Easter Bunny, or some other giant anthropomorphic rabbit? Experts are unsure.
The Easter Bunny himself has a long history with substance abuse. Formerly just a sugar addict, while delivering baskets in New York in the mid eighties the Easter Bunny became hooked on cocaine. Families throughout America would wake on Easter morning to find half-filled baskets in the living room and cash missing from their wallets.
June 5th 1989 a joint task force between the FBI and DEA caught the Easter Bunny at a motel outside of Houston, Texas. He had led the agents on a 5 state chase before finally being caught surrounded by chocolate eggs filled with methamphetamines.
Since being released from prison the Easter Bunny has stayed clean, and volunteered with drug education/prevention programs for children. He was even a guest on a “Scared Straight” television special, detailing his former life as a junkie.
Was this the Easter Bunny leaving the rehab clinic? Is he cleaning up his act again before the big day? Was he getting help to stay strong before during the stress and temptation of his holiday? Or was this a different anthropomorphic rabbit trying to get his life together?
