    Thank you,

    Welcome.

    It's taken from a TV ad about a breakfast cereal, called Trix. Click
    here to read more. (Scroll down to the rabbit). The ad goes like this, Trix (a breakfast cereal) is for kids. Trix and tricks are homonyms: they're pronounced the same way, but spelled differently.
