Pagans call Christians 'party poopers'

Never trust a bunny in an ascot.

I just wanted to thank all the people of pagan persuasion who read my column on the Easter Bunny and wrote to explain to me how the bunny -- and Easter, for that matter -- used to belong to them, before they were co-opted by the Christians, like all the other cool pagan stuff that Christians took all the fun out of. Pagans can be a persnickety bunch.

I should mention that I had actually thought about addressing the origins of the Easter Bunny in the column, but in the end it seemed like that would be coming a little too close to disseminating actual information. So I went with a Charlie Sheen gag instead.

Happy Easter!
