Am I the only one to ponder the synergistic opportunities that exist between the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy? This could be one of the biggest mergers in history.
Just think, the Bunny could totally dominate the holiday world by providing Easter eggs not only on Easter, but any time you lose a tooth. He'd be a year-round character!
Every time a tooth is lost, (except in bar fights and accidents - those are not to be rewarded) the tooth fairy comes and picks it up... and leaves an Easter egg under the pillow on behalf of his long-eared friend. He then keeps the tooth until the first Sunday in April, (or whenever the Pope or God decides it should be that year) and delivers it to the parents of the kid. That way, for kids Easter happens at random times throughout their tooth-bearing years, and parents get a nice "toothter basket" once a year. The Rabbit saves gas, the Fairy gets more notoriety.
The only problem is selling them both on the concept... they are both rather egotistical and enjoy thier current exclusivity.
Now, how can we merge Santa and the Great Pumpkin? I have an idea... but I'll have to save it for another post. Right now I am late for a peep-eating contest. I think I have a good chance of winning - I've been training for months with shit-flavored packing peanuts.
