The Cadbury bunny has been the face of Easter for years, but this year, the holiday's getting a canine-like twist.


You know, this sweet little clucking thing?

Well, his reign is over... for now.

That's right: This year's "Cadbury bunny" isn't a bunny at all. It's an 18-month-old bulldog.

Its name is Henri and it won the candy company's first "Bunny Tryouts" competition. Over 4,000 pets participated in the competition, which ended Saturday. To enter, pet owners had to submit photos of their pets wearing bunny ears.

The announcement was posted to Henri's official Instagram account. It reads:

WE WON!!! Henri wants to send out a HUGE SMOOCH to everyone who showed him some love. BIG HUGS to all who entered the contest. Your bunny pics made us smile! A HUGE Thank You to the wonderful people at Cadbury USA and to Doug The Pug, guest judge, for picking Henri! He would LOVE to meet you one day and share a Smooch!

Here's the moment when Cadbury proclaimed Henri the winner:

Quite the news: This is the first time Cadbury's gone ahead with a change to its ad for cream-filled chocolate eggs in 35 years. The new ad airs next month, on April 21. Henri––and his owners, of course––will receive $5,000 for their participation. Cadbury has announced it will donate $10,000 to the ASPCA.

Is Henri cut out for his big break? People seem to think so. He has fans already!





"We are honored to expand our tradition and welcome Henri as a new character to the commercial,"Cadbury spokeswoman Katrina Vatter said in a press release.

Way to go, pup!

CW: suicide.

Most people can be very guarded because of their vulnerabilities, even if you think you know them really well.

These disconcerting memories or character traits are better left undisclosed, for they can be painful for individuals to revisit or acknowledge.

On the other hand, opening up about these disturbing facts can also be therapeutic as long as they are revealed anonymously.

We never leave two movies feeling the same way.

In some cases, we are so moved by what we just saw, that we are sobbing so loudly, we're getting concerned looks from our fellow moviegoers.

In other cases, we waste no time in leaving, as we have just spent two hours or so of our lives we'll never get back again watching something which could have been made by second graders.

And then, there are the times when we leave the theatre, and all we can think is, "what the f*ck?"

Not necessarily because it was bad, but because we can't process exactly what we just saw.

It could be something we can appreciate more over time, with repeat viewings... how many views did it take you to fully understand Inception? Be honest!

Or, we are befuddled beyond words as to how such an inane, amateurish creation ever saw the light of day.

Franklin D. Roosevelt once famously said, "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself."

Words of encouragement to all Americans during his inaugural address, as America was in the midst of the great depression, with countless people having lost their jobs, their homes, and even their will to live.

While America did, indeed, bounce back, it hasn't stopped people from constantly living in fear.

Sadly, we're not talking about unfounded fears, such as ghosts or superstitions.

Unfortunately, there is plenty to be afraid of in this world, and horrifying evidence to prove it.
