Pink Bunny Suits

Billy Falkingham is in big big bunny trouble. The 34-year old Idaho Falls man was issued a warning by the police that he should stop wearing his bunny suit. Apparently, it frightens children.

In August of this year, the Idaho Falls Police Department responded to a call about a man wearing a bunny suit. When the police investigated, they found that Billy Falkinham is just one strange duck ...or bunny. One neighbor said Falkingham was peeking out from behind a tree and pointed his finger like a gun at her son. So they called the police.

When police investigated, they found out that Falkingham is one funny bunny. (Funny, as in a banana gone funny, that is.) He apparently also has a cowboy outfit and a pink tutu. Sometimes he wears the tutu with the bunny suit. But even though it is strange, the bolero ballerina bunny is harmless. In fact, one neighbor was upset that Falkingham was being investigated. "He's got the bunny outfit, a cowboy suit and a ballerina dress but you don't see him except where he's tripping through his backyard. He's got a strange lifestyle at home but we all do weird things at home," she said. Ummm. Maybe I'm ignorant and uninformed, but I don't know many people who go around at home dancing in a bunny suit.

Except. Well. Except possibly me.

As you may all know by now, there was a trunk or treat candy fundraiser. I don't know if I am the winner or the loser, but apparently I have to wear a pink bunny suit. I will actually get the bunny suit this week so I can try it on and make sure it fits. I'll probably dance around the house to see if I can move in it. Don't worry. I'll close all the windows. I don't want nosey neighbors calling the police on me. I also don't want to frighten any neighborhood children.

But just in case my next article is from the Pima County Jail, know this: I did it for the children and for the candy. But I'm not too worried. God doesn't hold back His love when we do really strange things. I know Jesus loves me even when I'm wearing a pink bunny suit. Even if He is laughing His head off.
