Return of the Easter Bilby

by John Quiggin on April 18, 2022

In one of my earliest posts on CT, I mention the great Australian divide on Easter confectionary: bilby (cute endangered marsupial) vs bunny (voracious alien pest). It’s been a while since I’ve seen Easter bilbies on sale, but they were back this year, helping to raise funds for wildlife presentation In typical Twitter fashion, the pro-bilby group has divided on the question: Ears first or tail first.

Traveling in Germany with a temporary German SIM card, my phone has rapidly naturalized.
Still, I was surprised that when I typed
“Bilby”
into my search engine, it offered me several autofill searches, one of which was
“Bilby schokolade kaufen”.
From this I conclude there must be a fair number of people in Germany trying to buy chocolate bilbies. You Australians do get around.
