“I think I did something right,” she said. “That’s disgusting already.”
The display features five mannequins dressed as scantily-clad bunnies, all of whom carry Easter baskets and stand surrounded by Easter eggs.

“Easter eggs are fine, bunnies are fine, but not Playboy bunnies,” Michelle Zaccone said.
Others say they find the display funny.
“I love it. I think it’s great,” neighbor Cheryl Lueddeke said. “You know what? People need to get over themselves, they need to lighten up, have a sense of humor.”
The owner of the display, Wayne Gangi, says he is in the process of filing a restraining order against her and added that the display is going back up. But for now “No Trespassing” signs surround his lawn.
