Return Of The Bunny Bandit

Daddy Steve:  You may recall that last Easter Frank ran amok and ate every chocolate bunny ear in sight.  This Easter, the boys were all determined to prevent a repeat.  They started planning their strategy early...

Giancarlo: We'll wear Frank out the day before, so he won't be able to get up before the rest of us on Easter morning.
Robin: Luke, since you're Frank's bunk-mate, we'll put you in charge of keeping an eye on him during the night--as an added precaution.
Luke: You can count on Krakatoa and me, right boy?
Krakatoa: Yip!

On the Saturday before Easter, they put Operation Save The Bunny Ears into effect.

Ezra: Hey Frank, wanna race around the house?  Winner gets the last cupcake!
Frank: You're on!

Sebastian: How about a game of 'Tag', Frank?  I'll be 'it.'
Frank: Sure!

Tyler: Frank, come play soccer with us!
Frank: Eh, maybe later....zzzzzzzzzzzz
Mikko, whispering: It's working!

That evening...

Robin, whispering: Remember, Luke, you and Krakatoa have to watch Frank tonight so he doesn't get up to any shenanigans.
Luke: We'll keep a constant lookout.  Um, but if we do happen to nod off for just a second, I have a backup plan.  I'm going to tie one end of this string to my hand and the other to Frank's foot.
Robin: Brilliant!

So, come Easter morning...

Giancarlo: Well, Luke, how'd it go?
Luke: Operation Save The Bunny Ears was a success!  He never moved once all night.  Right Krakatoa?
Krakatoa: Yip! Yip!
Robin: It looks like we really outsmarted him this time.
Blake: Hmmmmm.  I'm not so sure; since when does Frank sleep with a cap on?

Giancarlo: Hey!  It's just a pile of clothes and a Jack O'Lantern head!
Emile: Sacre bleu!  'E 'as done eet again!

Luke: B-b-but how?  Krakatoa never made a sound all night.
Blake: What's that on the floor?

Giancarlo: An empty bag of 'Yip-Yums,' Krakatoa's favorite treat!

Luke: Oh, no.  Did he bribe you, boy?
Krakatoa: >whine<
Blake: I didn't think Frank was that clever.
Robin: Oh, well.  I don't suppose anyone will complain about a few missing chocolate bunny ears.

Holly Belle: HEY!  What's the big idea?!

And it was such a great plan! Frank must be full of energy to race round the house, play tag and football and still manage to eat the bunny ears before the others get up!
Poor Krakatoa ! the shame ! bribed with his favourite treat!!

But I do think Frank may just be in BIG one and I do mean no one comes between a girl and her chocolate.... Lucky for him he's a fast runner.... lol
Happy Easter lads and lass

Hi Dee -

I think you're absolutely right, and Holly Belle is definitely a force to be reckoned with! Happy Easter to you.

Happy Easter to you all! You put me to must have taken ages putting together this fun post!! I was too busy eating chocolate :)

Just adored this and I fully appreciate all the time and effort that has gone into making this fun post... so a huge thank you is coming your way.

You've got some very clever thinking lads over there. It was a great plan... which unfortunately didn't materialise as hoped due to an extra bright thinking Frank!

A Sasha now in the house will surely 'Put the cat amongst the pigeons!' Will certainly have to keep an extra watch on this space.

too funny! sneaky Frank won again! I think they might just have to decide they don't like bunny ears after all. I laughed out loud when I saw the pumpkin head with a hat in the bd!
