This doesn't qualify as an epic video. Apart from that I have just always wanted to start a topic with this title. Anyway, the bunny is awfully cute. Other than that there is no reason whatsoever for this post.

Both the animal and the flower are delicious if cooked correctly.

You can make wine from dandelions. But not from bunnies.

If you drink dandelion wine you won't be able to shoot straight enough to harvest bunnies!

I have tried dandelion wine once,  the thought still terrifies me.

Dandelion and Burdock Mead with a beautifully prepared rabbit is divine! Sadly the mead is very hard to find in Europe nowadays.

 

Rabbit although now a "protest meat" is still an excellent meat if hung and prepared correctly. What puts most people off I believe, is that a rabbit looks so skinny compared to a chicken. But an excellent tasty meat nonetheless.

I came from a farm. We shot rabbits. My Dad uprooted a nest while mowing. (not  lawn mower. Thats not a lawn mower...THIS IS A LAWN MOWER Crocodile Dundee) killed them all, except one. Tiny. We fee=d it milk from a dolls bottle, Berty Germ was his name. Loved flowers like this

Yes, I have eaten rabbits too. very tasty. But I also have a friend with pet bunnies. Very cute, gorgeous fur, and I couldn't eat him.

 

Without the heads and skin, yes, then it's just a corpse. Intact? I never could bring myself to murder anything, geese, bunnies, sheep whatever....

We used to eat bunnies when we were living in Aus and trying to save to buy our first home.  They were $2 each at the markets, skinned and gutted - about 1/3 of the price of a chicken at the supermarket, and more-or-less interchangeable.

 

I'm not sure where they came from, it doesn't seem probable that they could be farmed and sold for so much less than the price of a chicken, wild perhaps.  One theory was that they came from suppliers to the akubra hat factory, the profit was in the fur, the carcass was a by-product.

People, please. This was supposed to be gentle thread celebrating fluffiness and warm fuzzies. You are turning it into another carnivorous bloodfest.

Those weren't bunnies. Those were psychopaths in bunny costumes. Everyone knows that real bunnies lay chocolate eggs.

Hope Air NZ doesn't finger-tight the bolts on the self-exploding 787 engines.  Frank the bunny told me I'll find out in 28 days, 6 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds.
