The Easter Bunny is a criminal, and there’s still no joy in Idaho.
Happy belated Easter! Did you hear that the Easter Bunny was arrested in Florida? Or that you can now stay in a giant potato in Idaho, because how else would you experience joy in Idaho? Also, Thanos is back. Welcome to this week in Internet Hell.

3. Killer Pets Deserve Homes, Too
Some pets murder their owners and are put to death. But, like humans, if you are too pretty to die, then you can murder whomever you'd like and probably get away with it.

5. Anti-Vaccers Held a Rally and They Used a Grizzly Bear to Prove Their Point
Yes. This (sort of) occurred this past week. Gizmodo published, “This Was Supposed to Be a Story About a Bizarre Anti-Vaccine Rally and a Sedated Bear. Then It Got Weird." It got weird after you heard about the bear? How? When? Why? And how bloody were the inevitable injuries that ensued? I won't spoil it for you. Here is an excerpt of the organizers' proposed plans for the rally:

Breaking down the bias of comfort films.
With the constant onslaught of complicated news that 2020 has brought, sometimes you just want to be able to shut off your brain, relax, and feel happy.
Enter comfort films. These are the feel-good movies that feel like a warm hug when you finish them, the ones that allow you to escape for a short while. We often turn to these types of films in times of trouble or extreme stress, and when we're not sure what films of this nature we should watch, we turn to the Internet for options.
Black holes, blood suckers, and billionaires who once sold shampoo door-to-door. The Internet is still a void of light and love, but look at this picture of John McAfee's very large dogs.
Yes, there was a ground-breaking development in human technology this past week, yadda yadda.
But predating the Event Horizon Telescope's first picture of a black hole, the Internet's been a visible void of light and love since Al Gore invented it. Meanwhile, we've been waiting with baited breath while one of our beloved writers spent a week with John McAfee in the Bahamas. Now we can confirm that he lived to tell the tale—his skin is peeling and he's existentially fatigued. He probably looks like Jesus did right after he rose from his grave. Speaking of which, let's start counting down to Easter with this week in Internet Hell.
1. John McAfee Dubbed Our Own Popdust Writer Dan Kahan as Jesus Christ
What? Who? How?! Why?! To answer your main question of EXCUSE ME?! here is "The Strange Ballad of John McAfee." No, none of your questions will be answered, which should teach you a lesson about who John McAfee is.
Jesus came for me today. I feared I would have no opportunity to say goodbye, but he was only bringing tidings of… https://t.co/yLvfCp6tmC— John McAfee (@John McAfee)1554411932.0
Dan was also surrounded by McAfee's assortment of very large dogs. Popdust is happy to confirm that he survived.

2. Someone's Keeping Frederick Douglass Down in Rochester, NY
With a headline that embodies good old American small town ethos while also sounding sad about it, Rochester's Democrat and Chronicle published "That Frederick Douglass statue is down again. Here's why." The actual story entails vandalism, community projects, and (what a surprise!) racism, but the spoiler is that the statue is actually safe and sound for the sake of conservation. I'm sorry we scared you.

These posts are not meant to be funny. This is just a fact, and we're very concerned. Perhaps send simple notes to these people filled with non-specific words of encouragement: "I see you," "You are appreciated," "The owner of Patron Tequila used to sell shampoo door-to-door. Anything can happen!"
"I'm looking to sell my monthly pension payment for 1 or 2 years
$6500 up front for $1k for $12 months $12k
Or willing to go 2 years if that helps.
It's a free car payment a month or can help out with the mortgage or rent or a free vacation."

5. The Popdust Awards for Best Black Hole Memes Go to...
Congratulations to Powehi, the newly named first black hole to ever be photographed. The term is a Hawaiian phrase referring to an "embellished dark source of unending creation." While the Internet has exploded with black hole memes, we've spotlighted the two that do the most justice to this momentous occasion in the course of human history:
