Interesting Rabbit News.

This may interest Mr. Fabulous.
Rabbit breeder Karl Szmolinsky presents an almost 10 kilogram heavy grey German Giant at his farm in Eberswalde, Germany, Wednesday 03 January 2007.


With the knowledge and help of Szmolinsky, North Korea wants to start its own rabbit breeding programme. Already 12 of Szmolinsky's rabbits are in North Korea. In April the breeder will fly to Asia in order to supervise the founding of a breeding farm.

I can understand why N. Korea would be interested. I think their plan is to breed millions of giant rabbits, who will then have no problem breeding themselves.

Then they will have food... and I'm sure Kim Jong Il will release them all over the world where the rabbits will wreak havoc and eat crops and stuff.

Then the rabbits will take over the world, which they will turn over to their leader, Mr. Fab.

Am I right?

I know rabbit as food is popular, especially in France and Spain. But I find they remind me too much of my cats, so I don't want to eat them.

I'm really scared now. I'm having trouble with that top photo. It looks too crazy to be real. Maybe it'd be sexier with Kim Jong Il glasses?

Dale, you look sexier with your Kim Jong Ill glasses. Maybe Sans can make that his next post.

Teri, I cannot confirm that NK want to breed the rabbits for food, but that would be the most likely reason.

Mel, I'll keep an eye out for that size when I visit Thornton's Chocolate Shop.

Lynda, Do you fancy a 22 lb chocolate rabbit?

Amy, As you read this, fleets of aircraft filled with giant grey rabbits are heading towards all major farming centers. The intent is to drop them by parachute so that all crops will be devoured, and the rabbits size will increase to that of an SUV.
Harness and saddles can be purchased at Home Depot...

Tanya, I'm with you.

DutchBitch, Hopefully they are not going to breed them to feed the population, but...

Dale, I'm sure the photographer has made the best use of depth of field to make the rabbit appear as big as possible. Put the glasses on and let me know if it works...

Nobody goes against the flow...

They're no longer cute when they're that big. Look at the EARS on that brown one! He should be able to hear all the way to Korea!

Whoa, that is a big rabbit.

I was browsing the local pet supply... I have cats, dogs, hamsters and once had rabbits... (idea for a post now, what a story)

There was a guy in there with a rabbit in his shopping cart that completely FILLED the small kid/purse holder section by the cart handle.

I said, "Hey kids, check out the mega-bunny." The guy responded, "That's actually his name."

The thing was HUGE.

I've eaten rabbit. Meat is meat to me. I don't go out of my way to find it, but if you're not a vegetarian, what is the difference what kind of animal? And no, I wouldn't eat a dog, a hamster, or a cat!!! Did have an aquarium once tho - I'll eat larger versions of them, too.

Here in the midwest where corn is king- rabbits are devoured at all times, even national holidays like St. Patties day-- by the way, what sound does a rabbit make?
