Gus the White Rabbit: Uh-huh – well, after last year’s carnage, we’re ready for those little Mongols – aren’t we, gang?
Lavender Bunny: Yep – time we got back ours.
Dainty Bunny: Oh yes! Perhaps I’ll find my little pink son – I hope!
The Peeps: Yeah! We’ll teach them to eat our momma last year. Dunno why their teeth didn’t fall out, after all that sugar, though.
Uh-oh, Oona Dolly’s a duplicitous character! How did that happen?
Our next story casts light on that –
