Cease and Desist Order To Bunny Suit Wearing Man
August 3 | Hmmm...No Comments Yet
Longtime readers of this blog, and the fabulous book Bad to the Bone: Memoir of a Rebel Doggie Blogger, know I love to dress up during Halloween.
Just take a look at the picture in the header of this blog. No, not the Amazon advertisement, but to the left, that handsome dog in the Darth Vader outfit. That’s right, that’s me, not some overpaid dog model.
I’ve been many things over the years ranging from a pumpkin monster, a gay cowboy and a dinosaur with a caveman on his back. I love to dress up, if only to entertain my parents. I figure it’s the one time of year I can ‘give back’, although I do have boundaries.
Last year I heard the old man talking about getting me a Princess Leia costume, and then chuckling uncontrollably. Well that ain’t gonna happen, ever. Well, at least not in public.
One thing I have no desire to dress as is a bunny. Yeah, like an Easter rabbit. A potato head in Idaho begs to differ with that desire.
Salmon, Idaho – Police in Idaho Falls have told a man to stop wearing a bunny suit in public after people complained he has been frightening children.
Residents in the northwestern US city of 54 000 people also reported William Falkingham, 34, occasionally wears a tutu with the bunny suit, police said in a statement on Tuesday.
Police warned Falkingham after a woman said she saw him dressed in the costume, peeking at her young son from behind a tree and pointing his finger like a gun.
While a police report said other residents were “greatly disturbed” by his activities, one neighbor defended Falkingham as eccentric but otherwise harmless.
“He’s got the bunny outfit, a cowboy suit and a ballerina dress but you don’t see him except where he’s tripping through his backyard,” Deborah Colson told Reuters. “He’s got a strange lifestyle at home but we all do weird things at home.”
Falkingham told officers he “enjoys wearing the suit” but understands the concerns and that he could be cited as a public nuisance, police spokeswoman Joelyn Hansen said. – Reuters
