The best picture of President Obama and the Easter Bunny you will ever see

Today was the annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House. Kids descended on the South Lawn of the White House to roll eggs, dance to live music and listen to President Obama read "Where the Wild Things Are" by Maurice Sendak. (For you sports buffs, President Obama took a few jump shots too; he went 1 for 3, a major improvement on his 2 for 22 "performance" at the 2013 egg roll.)

The star of the show was, naturally, the Easter Bunny.  And, anytime you have a life-sized rabbit walking around the White House, hilarity ensues.  While the picture above is our favorite -- for more on the "SOON" meme, click here -- there were so many good ones we couldn't resist posting a few more below.

The Easter Bunny as budding politician -- with a practiced hand wave.

The Easter Bunny is nothing if not patriotic.

But he is also not easily amused.

And, always remember: The Easter Bunny loves presidents of all parties.
