Apparently, zee Germans are quick with und pen. In the Tykwer film "The Princess and The Warrior" an impromptu tracheotomy is performed under a truck/lorry using a pen.

That wasn't just any rabbit, quonsar. I heard Bugs was pretty bugged out on PCP.

Excuse me, you're both wrong. The bunny was raped with a toilet plunger and he was completely innocent. To make things worse, they planted him on a doorstep when they were done and riddled him with bullets.

Yeah, but that was one hell of a big bunny and mean. That big bunny was just no fucking good.

About 10 years ago a veterinary clinic near here burned down. Luckily, all the patients were saved, but I'll never forget the photo in the paper the next day: Two firefighters giving CPR to cats stretched out in the parking lot. (They, too, used some sort of straw-like device.) It was just so danged heartwarming...

Is it too late to revive Oolong?

He was probably scooping up the field mice and bopping them on the head.

Is it too late to revive Oolong? - no, we can revive the rabbit with the power of lightning.
