Dust Bunnies

These cuddly looking bunnies are actually composed of household detritus, including Christmas tree needles, discarded toddler toy parts, dryer lint, toenail clippings and human hair.
It took 2½ years to collect enough dirt and dust to make 16 of her Dust Bunnies

Suzanne Proulx, from Erie, Pennsylvania, took 2½ years to collect enough dirt and dust to make 16 of her Dust Bunnies. Suzanne’s first bunnies were a humorous comment on the dust and dirt that seemed to invade her house and multiply like wild rabbits.

The Secret Service

When most people refer to the Secret Service, they think stoic men who take their duties very seriously. You don’t generally imagine them dressing up in bunny costumes and parading around the White House lawn.
Those are Secret Service Agents in Bunny Outfits!

In 1984, Ronald Reagan had his Secret Service agents dress up as the Easter Bunny for the annual Easter Egg Roll. The Easter Egg Roll has been a White House tradition since 1878.
