Animal Groups Send Mixed Messages

I received e-mails this week from the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and Best Friends Animal Sanctuary regarding the upcoming holiday.

The HSUS writes:
No Hoppy Easter
Animal shelters take in a large number of rabbits following the Easter holiday. Learn why you should give the real bunnies a break and stick to the chocolate ones.
Okay, but then Best Friends writes:
Happy, hoppy Easter
We hope you have a very happy Easter! And please take a moment to remind everyone you know that we want the bunnies and chicks of the world to have a happy Easter too, which means please don’t give them as Easter gifts.
Shit, now I'm confused. Although the underlying message is the same, I don't know whether my Easter should be hoppy or not!
