Once (quite recently) there were some Easter eggs. They were happy little monsters. Well, actually, some of them were sort of angry.
Then something terrible happened. One by one, they began to disappear.
Some of them vanished for obvious reasons.
But as more and more of them went missing, some of them began to worry.
Others were relentlessly cheerful, even when faced with their own destruction.
The full peril of their situation began to dawn on the few who remained.
They needn't have worried. It didn't help.
Airhead was the only one left.
He attributed his survival to Show-and-Tell. "If my five-year-old owner hadn't begged her mom to make me hollow so she could take me to Pre-school with her, I never would have made it. If only the process hadn't give her mom "balloon-ears-syndrome" more of my fellow monsters would be with us today."
Eventually, Airhead moved past the tragedy and started a family.
And the circle of life goes on.
