The Easter Bunny has been declared an essential service

New deal passes by a hare...

After talks broke down last week between the Easter Bunny and the Ford government, it seemed uncertain if the critical work of hiding Easter Eggs would get done during the holiday.

While exact details were not released, it is widely assumed that the troubles faced at the bargaining table came from the insistence that if the Easter Bunny was to be considered an essential service, the Tooth Fairy must also be considered one. The Ford government was justifiably concerned that gathering teeth would put the Tooth Fairy at an increased and unfair risk of infection. “The Easter Bunny hides eggs by himself so social distancing is a natural part of his job, however, the Tooth Fairy has a trickier time staying six feet away from people.” said the Ford government.

Thankfully, a deal has been struck between the Ford government and the newly formed Major Assembly of Greater Illusionary Characters (M.A.G.I.C). The Easter Bunny will continue his work alongside the Tooth Fairy with new safety precautions in place. Personal protective equipment will be provided to all members of M.A.G.I.C and they will now use their powers to ensure they stay at least 6 feet away from people.

Another member of M.A.G.I.C, Santa Claus, reach out to us with a statement saying “It’s fantastic to see the well being of our members along with the safety all Ontarians being upheld. Health is priority one, and for the members of M.A.G.I.C, keeping childhood joy and excitement alive is a close second.”
