Shoot the wabbit

Another of those only in Florida stories. Guess what held up traffic yesterday?

PALM BEACH GARDENS -- Police wrangled a gigantic pink bunny from atop an overpass above Interstate-95 in Palm Beach Gardens this morning.

"He was a hazard," said a Gardens dispatcher, and apparently causing quite a traffic back up to boot.

The fuzzy culprit turned out to be the Buzz Bunny, who is promoting Buzz 103.1 FM's upcoming adult Easter egg hunt.

He was standing on the overpass just south of Donald Ross Road and waving down at drivers.

"I'm going to have to have a talk with the bunny," said the station's promotions director Brett Russell. "Obviously we don't mean to do that."

The bunny was called in by a Gardens police officer shortly before 8:40 a.m., according to dispatchers.

Where was Elmer Fudd when you need him? A giant pink bunny waving at rush hour traffic. As I so often say about Florida- Isn't this a great state or what?

Hmmm. So are we then to believe Mr. Bunny was out on his own time, in full costume, just to promote the event? And wasn't on the clock? And wasn't TOLD to do it by "promotions director Brett Russell"?

Sure. Know any other good ones?

My kids still talk about the time that we passed a Dunkin Donuts grand opening and there was an enormous honey-dipped donut with colored sprinkles dancing and waving like a maniac at the passing traffic. I was wishing that Homer Simpson would come along and take care of it for us.

Usually national news strories about Florida this time of year are about giant alligators eating deer or or dogs, buzzards taking over towns and all sorts of obnoxious insects attacking humans. These are climate envy stories designed to make northerners feel good that they are freezing their buns off up north.

Pink bunnies??? Who would have thought that one up?

Although I don't normally find taser use amusing, I'm curious if the taser would have affected this moron through the bunny suit.
