Huntin' Wabbits

The latest installment of 30 Second Bunnies Theatre is available. This time they tackle Pulp Fiction... and do an admirable job. As far as I know, this is the first bunnies film where they actually swear - a sight/sound that's fairly disturbing to my virgin ears - but it's still a fine production nonetheless. Also, if you scroll down a little bit, you'll notice the film library. They seem to have slipped their rendition of 'It's A Wonderful Life' in there when I wasn't looking. Quite the pleasant surprise, and if you watch it, make sure you click on the three bunny silhouettes in the credits at the end for a few easter eggs (no pun intended.)

Speaking of rabbits, I was driving in my old 'hood back in the Boston burbs last week and I noticed the damn things hopping around everywhere. I must have seen six or seven in a two minute span at one point. I had always thought the term "f*****g like bunnies" was a little odd, but now I understand that it actually has some basis in fact. Actually, come to think of it these may have been hares because they seemed a little more lean and nimble than an ordinary rabbit (when I think of a rabbit, I think of these squat little furry fat things that nibble and shit a lot, and otherwise don't really move. The things I saw had the same color fur as a German Shepherd and could FLY.) In any event, I don't remember these things at all growing up so their taking up refuge in the more affluent suburbs must be a fairly recent development. Maybe soon they'll reach the 'scourge' stage, much like turkey's on Martha's Vineyard, and the well-to-do's will freak (we have wild turkey's on the campus where I work, incidentally. Dumb ass birds are a nuisance. If you have a darker colored (and glossy) car and they see their own reflection in the paint, they'll peck away at it thinking it's a foe. Apparently they climb trees too as earlier this semester, in what could only be described as a sneak attack, two turkeys jumped out of some lower branches onto the heads of two of our more unfortunate students.) Whatever - back to rabbits - if they get to be too much of a problem they can always just cook up a little rabbit paste and be done with them.. or perhaps a little jugged hare (whatever that is.)

Incidentally, I don't think I'll be writing about rabbits again anytime soon, so snatch up these recipes while you can (although you never know when the urge will strike - like today, for instance. I had
planned on writing about the current heatwave gripping our metropolis, but as you see these posts can sometimes take on a life of their own.) For now, I'll leave you with a photo of the 'Tortoise and Hare' sculpture in Copley Square - a sculpture which has apparently been there for the last ten years, but which I only noticed two weeks ago as I walked by it.
