This cartoon by Rick McKee of the Augusta Chronicle shows an Easter Bunny attending a job interview at the Unemployment Office. The bunny is carrying a basket of eggs. The interviewer tells him that in the current job market he should be flexible and not put all his eggs in one basket.
The cartoonist plays on a well-known idiom. If someone puts all their eggs in one basket, they put all their resources into doing one thing, so that, if it fails, they have no alternatives left. And, in legend, the the Easter Bunny (or Easter Rabbit) brings baskets filled with colored eggs, candy and sometimes also toys to the homes of children. The context to all of this is the fragile US job market, which stalled in March.
