How you eat a chocolate Easter bunny says a lot about you

Easter is only a few days away, and that means it's almost time to unwrap a chocolate bunny and throw up to your sweet tooth. Unless you've been biting those bunnies since they hit store shelves weeks ago.

Of course, no one would judge you for snacking early.

But they could judge how you nibble.

A study recently published in the Laryngoscope Journal found that the vast majority of bunny users (59 percent) start with their ears.

because Sure do them.

The study used online research to determine the bunny-eating habits of over 28,000 people, and the ears-first method emerged as the norm.

Not so normal? You could even say abnormal? The approach of the feet first.

Yes, there are people out there who turn their bunnies over and start with the old rabbit's foot. But not many of them - only 4 percent start there.

As for everyone else, they just enjoy chocolate shaped like a bunny without even paying attention to the parts. The researchers found that 33 percent of people have no preference at all when it comes to that all-important first bite.

Of course, if you happen to be one of those "abnormal" people, don't worry. While the course is in full swing, the subject is deliberately ironic. Or ear-to-mouth.

Aptly and hilariously titled Seasonality of Ear Amputations in Rabbits, researchers including Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor Kathleen Yarmchuk were out to have fun with the topic and establish the unique nature of chocolate bunny eating.

"It was interesting to discover that few other pastry icons, such as Santa Claus, succumb to isolated defects like the chocolate bunnies," Yaremchuk said in the newspaper.

For example, she told the New York Daily News, "People don't report eating Santa's face."

Well. Because frankly, aiming at Santa's face seems to be more difficult than kicking off with rabbit feet.
