“Lidl ordered to destroy its Lindt-like chocolate bunnies by Swiss court
Ruling on trademark case suggests German retailer could melt down and
reuse the offending rabbits”
The Guardian

Ah, poor Lidl bunnies! How have they offended?
Though sweet as the Swiss, they had never pretended:
Their makers, perhaps, were impetuous riskers,
In painting their aureate wrapping with whiskers,
But this latest ruling is bitter to swallow.
Let Lindt have a melt-down—no bunnies should follow!
