Can giant rabbits transmit COVID–19?

Jesus may be able to resurrect his way to that big upstate in the sky and ride out the coronavirus pandemic at his dad’s house, but unfortunately, the rest of us sinners are all cooped up in our tomb-like homes this Easter. And with egg prices on the rise and the CDC telling us to stay home and avoid people, the usual traditions aren’t advisable or even affordable. Here are some exciting alternatives to pastel-dyed chicken ova to hide in nooks and crannies around the house this Easter:

  • Expired olives (like zesty Cadbury Mini Eggs!)
  • Tide Pods (so pretty!)
  • Old prescription bottles filled with dry roasted peanuts
  • Dirty, balled up socks (collect ’em in the laundry basket!)
  • Litterbox clumps
  • Frozen chicken nuggets
  • Toilet paper tubes stuffed with the last few sheets (what a treat!)
  • Jars of failed sourdough starter
  • Potatoes!
  • Rubber gloves full of hand sanitizer
  • Raw, white eggs

And remember, COVID–19 is too new to determine whether it can be transmitted by giant rabbits. So stay safe, wash your hands, and have a Hoppy Easter!
