#TBT: Retired Accountant Whose Last Name Is Bunny Wins Easter Contest

This gem comes from the Warrington Guardian in England back in April 2014:

Bookmakers feared the work of a prankster when the winner of a £124,987 first prize in a nationwide contest culminating ahead of Easter was Mr. Bunny.

But the winner of the Easter cash is in fact retired accountant David Bunny who now plans to spend the money on his three cherished grandchildren.

Ben Turnbull, commercial manager of the Tote-Ten-To-Follow competition, said when Bunny’s name popped up just ahead of Easter, “we thought it was a wind up and that someone was pulling our leg.”

“It didn’t help that he appeared at the top of the leader board around April Fool’s Day.

“But we got an even bigger surprise to discover that it actually was Mr. Bunny in the money in time for Easter.”
