Evil Purple Rabbits, well known "Spirit Familiars" of followers of the
Outcast One, are invisible all year except at Easter Time, a Holy time, 
when they emerge to do their yearly battle with the Telepathic Yellow
Peeps, for control of the Human Will, and the Souls of the Living.

And lo! I say unto you, this is a true fact and I don't need no Peep
Fossils to prove it!  As it says in the Holly Bibble:

   "And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have
   familiar spirits, and unto wizards that Peep, and that mutter:
   should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?"
                                                           --Isaiah 8:19


'Nuff said!

 ..."To think that the spectre you see is an illusion does not rob
    him of his terrors: it simply adds the further terror of madness
    itself - and then on top of that the horrible surmise that those
    whom the rest have called mad have, all along, been the only people
    who see the world as it really is." --C. S. Lewis, 'Perelandra'
