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