KRISTEN'S STORY - WINNER
PLEASE DON'T GET YOUR KID A PET BUNNY FOR EASTER
Easter is less than a week away, so kids are getting ready for egg hunts and coloring eggs and all that candy their baskets will be filled with. But some parents like to go all out on holidays and those who are a little extra might even want to get their kiddos a pet rabbit, like a real Easter bunny.
Sure, they’re cute and all, but before you go get your little ones a live animal for Easter, know that the stats are NOT in your favor here. It turns out, 80% of bunnies purchased at Easter are abandoned. And according to the Humane Society, rabbits are the third most abandoned pet, after cats and dogs, because people like to give them as Easter presents.
So as much as you want to be the hero of the holiday, just stick to jelly beans, Peeps, and other Easter goodies that aren’t exotic pets that require a lifetime of care. But if you do decide to go with the live Easter bunny, do your research first. Make sure you know how to care for this animal before you add it to your family. You don’t want to have to try to find Peter Cottontail a new home, or worse. And kids love candy, anyway.
POLICE OFFICER ASSISTS IN BREAKUP
We always hear that the police are our friends. And one guy took a police officer up on the motto when he walked into a police station with a problem.
His problem was a personal one: He wanted to break up with his girlfriend but didn't know how to do it.
One of the female officers took him aside and proposed several alternative scenarios. She was able to advise...but not close the deal.
Whether the man took the advice is not yet known.
