There's a frustrated painter in that rabbit's eye! I can see him and his little mustache!

Maybe he'll cut off his ear!

He's not got much to cut off, by bunny standards.

I'm going to Vegas for the annual Golf Debacle in a month or so. There will be very different rabbit picture opportunities. (I know I have a photo of a swarm of the funny looking critters on a green somewhere, but it's not on this computer. It might even be a film picture, for that matter.)

P.S. J—, he's no doubt frustrated by the fact that a little bit of thaw gave him some gnarly grass to gnaw on a freezing February night, but now it's all covered in snow again.

What hops in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

I believe "Church of the Rabbit Orbs" was the original working title of this song.

Zorbs!

Zorbs are awesome.

Also, imagine I animated a zoom-in on the bunny eye, which revealed Hitler and then KEPT ON ZOOMING TO REVEAL ANOTHER BUNNY!

One word: Zorbs.

“These are zorbs – giant, glowing spheres,” Chernyshenko explained, in tones reminiscent of a carnival barker. A photograph of sparkling globes flashed on a screen next to the stage. The slide changed, and the Sochi.ru logo appeared on the screen.

“The zorbs reflect the all-important dot in the Sochi 2014 emblem,” said Chernyshenko. “So everything is very much linked and connected.”

A pause.

“You will understand it later,” he said.


Thanks for the link, J—.

As Mister McGravitas stated, Awesome!

(The word, by the way, appears to originate with a New Zealand company, Zorb, which has cornered the market on hurtling people down hills in giant hamster balls).

More precisely, the Zorb is a giant water-filled hamster wheel. Or half-filled. By all accounts it is like being in a transparent spherical washing-machine on Spin cycle, but with scenery rushing past. People seem to enjoy it.

Bunnicula!

It's rainin' orbs! Hallelujah!
It's rainin' orbs! Amen!

Outside my apartment building, that's where!

On another note, I do think the bunny looks a little funny (short ears, back feet, etc.).

I will not malign the poor critter and suggest that he/she/it/rabbit is the product of breeding with OTHER RODENTS, but I do suspect the gene pool around here is somewhat limited, what with all the parking lots, I-70, and such as.

I was amazed the first time I saw rabbits out here at night (and they are nocturnal, not crepuscular, based on my observations).

I hope you caught the Zorbs in the closing ceremony.

Bunnies is lagomorphs, not rodents. Hmmph.

According to Whackypedia,
the male's scrotum is in front of the penis (unlike rodents', which is behind); and
the penis contains no bone (baculum), unlike in rodents.


I do not intend to test these assertions.
