Saturday 9: This Is the Way the Bunny Hops

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: This Is the Way the Bunny Hops

On Saturdays I take a break from the heavy stuff and have some fun…
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) Why do you suppose there are so many songs about Santa Claus, yet very few about the Easter Bunny?
More money is made off of Christmas than Easter.

2) This song was written by The Kiboomers, two early education teachers who are passionate about the power of music to help kids learn. Tell us about a teacher who had an impact on your life.
Mr. Downer, he was my science teacher.

3) Legend has it that the Easter Bunny was introduced to America in the 1700s by German immigrants. These children waited for a magic creature who left colored eggs. Today's kids dye Easter eggs themselves. When did you most recently color eggs?
Hmm… probably 50 years ago.

4) The Easter Bunny is usually shown carrying a wicker basket filled with eggs, toys and candy. Is there any wicker in the room you're in right now?
Nope, but in the kitchen I store all my wicker baskets.

5) While marshmallow Peeps are manufactured all year around, they are most popular at Easter. Do you prefer the chicks or the bunnies?
Neither! Remember I’m diabetic.

6) A little time in the microwave can do ugly things to a Peep. Have you ever nuked a Peep?
No, but don't give me any ideas. I nuked an egg; they explode nicely in the microwave. I’ve nuked a pencil, they are interesting because it all depends upon the length of the pencil (actually the length of the graphite) when you hit upon a multiple of the wavelength the graphite glows cherry red and the wood catches fire.
Moral to the story; don’t put a microwave in an engineering dorm, we are going to experiment with it.

7) Would you prefer a hollow or a solid chocolate bunny?
See my answer for #5.
I remember having chocolate bunnies that were filled with Baileys Irish Creme Liqueur, now those were bunnies that I liked.

8) A traditional American Easter dinner usually includes glazed ham or roast lamb. Which would you rather have as your main course?
At my sister-in-law’s we are having lamb.

9) Easter is considered the season of rebirth. What makes you feel refreshed or rejuvenated?
A nice hot bubble bath in the whirlpool tub with a glass of wine with shrimp cocktail.

A Bailey's bunny???? How have I missed these?

I had to laugh about the microwave in the engineering dorm. I am too chicken to experiment!

I would never have thought to microwave a pencil. That sounds really cool. I think the next time I need a new microwave I shall experiment with the old one before I toss it.


I used up a bunch of old nail polish to color eggs. Just pour drops of the nail polish in water and dunk the hard boiled egg and swirl. I have yet to crack one open yet, and I'm hoping the shell is not permeable enough to let the polish through.
