What does your bunny-eating style say about you?

Dear Positive Prescription readers,

It is time to address a serious matter. When you eat a chocolate bunny, what part of the bunny do you eat first? The ears, the tail, the feet?

A survey of 28,113 people provides some intriguing answers.  59% of respondents said they bit off the ears first. These unfortunate rabbits are described as having “auricular amputations.” 33% said they did not have a starting preference point and 4% said they said they went straight for the tail or the feet.

So, what does your bunny-eating style say about you? Theories abound online about what your munching method reveals about your personality:

Ears First

If you’re the kind of person who nibbles on the ears first, you’re a practical organized and traditional person who values security and you’re extremely loyal.  You might be a little impatient at times but everyone loves you!

Tail First

If you start with the chocolate tail, you’re the type that usually takes the road less traveled. But don’t think it’s because you’re an innovator, because you usually don’t like people knowing just what you’re up to.  You’re a bit cautious and maybe a little sneaky!

Feet First

If you eat the chocolate bunny paws first, it’s not so much because you’re trying to gain some “rabbit foot” luck, but rather you’re a caring and nurturing type of person, who also needs constant assurance that you are loved back.  Your insecurity causes you to fear being taken for granted or taken advantage of, thus clinging, or in the case of eating the feet first, “hobbling” things so they won’t get away.

Biting or Snapping Off Rabbit Head

You’re restless, independent and always on the go, and being a go-getter, you like to get the job done.  You also have a sparkling personality and make friends easily.

Smelling It First

If you tend to smell the chocolate rabbit before taking a bite, more than likely you’re a bit cautious.  You also tend to have high standards and you’re a very detail oriented person.  You’re also polite, very well mannered and you hold back, because you don’t want others to see that you’re also a bit odd!

Smashing the Bunny

You’d think anyone who’d smash a chocolate bunny to bits would rate right up there with a serial killer, but in fact, you’re just filled with lots of ambition and enthusiasm.  You’re “just do it” attitude is how you live your life.  You’re also a bit unpredictable, and keep others around you always guessing.

Full disclosure, I have yet to find any research to back any of this up. I conducted an informal survey of my own. “Obviously, the tail,” responded someone I know very well. He explained, “If you eat the ears first, well then it’s not a bunny anymore.”  Surely this is a “telltale” (pun intended) sign of something very important. I am just not quite sure what it is.

I asked my 9 year-old daughter how she would eat a bunny. “Fast,” she said.
