A man was blissfully driving along the highway, kind of day dreaming to himself, when he saw the Easter Bunny hopping across the middle of the road right in front of him.
He swerved his car to try and save the Easter Bunny and to avoid hitting him, but unfortunately the rabbit jumped right in front of his car and was hit.
The basket of eggs that the Easter Bunny was carrying went flying all over the place.
The driver, being a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulled over to the side of the road and got out to see what had become of the bunny carrying the basket.
Much to his dismay, the colorful Easter Bunny was dead.
The driver felt guilty and began to cry, thinking of all the thousands of children whose Easter would now be spoiled.
A woman who was driving down the same highway, saw the man crying on the side of the road and pulled over to see if she could help.
She stepped out of her car and asked the man what was wrong.
“I feel terrible”, he explained. “I accidentally hit the Easter Bunny and killed it. There may not be an Easter because of me. What should I do?”
The woman told the man not to worry and that she knew exactly what to do.
She went to her car trunk and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to the limp, dead Bunny and sprayed the entire contents of the can onto the little furry animal.
Miraculously, the Easter Bunny came to back life, jumped up, picked up the spilled eggs and candy, waved its paw at the two humans and hopped on down the road.
50 yards away the Easter Bunny stopped, turned around, waved back at them and hopped on down the road.
After another 50 yards, the bunny turned and waved again.
After yet another 50 yards he turned and waved again!
The man was astonished and couldn’t believe what he was seeing.
He said to the woman, “What in heaven’s name is in your spray can? What was it that you sprayed on the Easter Bunny?”
The woman turned the can around so that the man could read the label.
It said: “Hair spray. Restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave”.
