It’s the same thing in every picture, just different styles of artwork. Not a meme.

It’s just an easter joke. I have seen it around for at least 10 years now. It may be even older than that.

No Meme here. Just a joke.

that describes plenty of memes.
yes this is a meme.
no it’s not from 4chan.
Also, language and religion are memes.

Cool. That doesn’t mean it’s not a meme. Obviously we have evidence that it’s a contagious idea. It doesn’t matter that it began as a joke on an Easter card.

The question “is it a joke or a meme” is like “is it a hat or is it wool?”
Jokes and memes are not two mutually exclusive concepts by a long shot.

Many hats are made of wool. Not all hats are made of wool. Not all wool becomes a hat.
Many memes are made of jokes. Not all memes are made of jokes. Not all jokes become memes.

Even if it is a meme it’s still only seasonal and only with people who celebrate Easter.

Not only that, but also it only consists of rabbits. I haven’t seen anything else showing derivatives. It would be difficult to do that with a joke like this to have different variations.

Nice job finding so many versions!
Any idea where this thing got started?
