Ding Dong A Wooden Rabbit

A couple of months ago my MIL and SIL traveled to Pennsylvania for some business. Upon their return my MIL had told me about a Fertility Rabbit that their hosts had in their foyer. She had mentioned this in passing and had also told me of a picture that she had taken of our nephew(and her grandson). There was even a passing comment that this particular rabbit was something that I would think was cool...
Yesterday she sent me the picture of H* on the rabbit. She was sending the picture to show us this cute, but miserable look that he can give.
When I received the picture it wasn't H*'s expression that was causing me alarm. It was the absolute ugliness of this rabbit. It is a humongous wooden rabbit that has a penis for a tail. Right away I called Scott over to show him the picture.
"Poor wonder he's giving that look...that thing is pretty freaky!"he said.
"Pretty freaky is right, "I replied, "it's a bloody Easter Bunny with a boner!"
So of course we laughed. That night I sent the picture to my mom to get her take on the infamous bunny. She phoned after receiving it.
"Is that a wooden bunny?" she asked. "Why would someone have a huge wooden bunny?"
"I don't's some kind of a fertility rabbit. Different strokes for different folks." I replied. "Hey Mom did you notice the tail?" I asked.
"It's black." she replied.
"Its a penis." I responded.
"What?...Let me enlarge the picture...(gasp!)Oh, It's a big huge DING DONG hanging out for a tail! No wonder why the baby is upset!"she said.
"Well I'm not sure that's why. Oh well interesting stuff." I replied.(laughing over the fact that my mom still uses the term Ding-Dong!)
Anyhow I dreamed of the Gigantic wooden Easter bunny that has a Penis for a tail. I can say that there wasn't anything spiritual or relevant in the dream. I just think the thing is plain ol' scary. But...if someone has one in their home and enjoy it...more power to them!
The cool thing about this rabbit is I have learned all sorts of information about Fertility Rabbits. Imagine how many kids we would have had, had we owned one?? I have always wondered the relevance of the Easter Bunny and Easter. Read here for more info if you so desire.
I thought I would share the picture. I took out our nephew's face as I don't have permission to be posting his pic online.

What do you guys think?

PS. In no way am I making fun of, or belittling the owners of this rabbit. It is of high craftmanship. In all honesty, I wanted to somehow incorporate the use of the term "ding/dong" into a post...

Oh my...that is quite the rabbit! Can't say I would be wanting one anytime soon!

Hysterical!!! I have a weird compulsion to zoom in on the ding-dong, and I'm so frustrated that the pic won't enlarge. Great post!

BTW, that Wikipedia entry was totally educational, I didn't know half that stuff. Right on!
