Misnamed French Pastry

As you might be able to see from the label at the bottom of the picture, these French bakery treats are called "palmier", or palm leaves.

Non, non, non ... I beg to differ and hereby rally all to rename these "bunny ears" or "oreilles de lapin" (if Google translated that properly).

"Bunny ears" instead of "rabbit ears", already claimed by the antenna used to adjust your TV picture, if you are old enough to remember those (the pre- "all TVs are color, have remote controls and hook up to a TV service you pay for" generation).

Everyone, now,
répétez après moi:
May I have some bunny ears, please?
