Bunny Ears for Willie & Hank
It's nearly Easter again, and the Decorinator brought out her seasonal wares. Click that link (hey, you just passed it by) to see the various Easter bunnies (I call them hopping dinners) scattered around the stacks. There is an addition, however. Willie and Hank have bunny ears. As always, click the image to bigify.
"Tho' he be bunny-eared, is he still not a man?"
William Shakespeare, O Bunny Fellow, Act II, Scene iv (1593)
"Children, draw near, and I will reveal
The terrible tale of Paul Bunny-Ears"
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Ode to a Bunnyman (1843)
Looks like those bunny ears sorta struck close to home for these literary dudes. Nice be though the bunny ears are, they hold no candle to Morgan the Library Bunny's. (Hey, I never said I could write poetry.)

P.S. Hey, we just did a music video parody of "White Rabbit," by Jefferson Airplane (1967). How great is that for a segue?
P.P.S. "Drivin' My Life Away," by Eddie Rabbitt, was the first single released from the LP Horizon (1980). The windshield wiper tempo at the beginning vaguely reminded moi of the rhythm to Bob Dylan's "Subterranean Homesick Blues" (1965). The singing in both is pushed to fit a particular cadence.
