It'd be funnier if he were trying this in Australia.

Bravely facing his fate...

i can't believe he's gotten over 41,000 Euros already. I bet he'll eat it anyway, no matter how much he gets. rabbit is delish, i have to say.

hmm, The Militant German Girl is cute.

I promise I will not just not eat Bernd but I will also give him to a bunny breeding farm where he can spend the rest of his life as playboy in a way that we would all be jealous of.

I think that's almost an English sentence.

I hope he doesn't get the money, eats the rabbit, the cute German girl kills and eats him, and then I can eat her. Er..

If he makes the money, I'll eat a rabbit anyway. Just to balance things out.

Isn't this like emotional blackmail or something?

Yeah, the militant German rabbit loving girl is cute. Kind of funny that she's wearing a US flag though. And don't they have gun control in Germany by now? Even the teens have them!

The internet shows itself once again to be vehemently anti-bunny. You muderous bastards. Heathens. You're all heartless, hate-filled twinkies.

What if this were our dear, departed Oolong?

The shirt says "Halte à la Busherie": a French pun on the name of the American president. "Boucherie" is French for "butchery".

I wish I'd thought of this.

God damn, that's a cute bunny. I didn't expect that to be the focus of my comment, but... man. That's just a cute freakin' bunny.
posted by XQUZYPHYR at 5:27 PM on October 6, 2004


Yep, I agree. I doubt an ugly rabbit would have gotten 40K euros.
posted by onlyconnect at 5:31 PM on October 6, 2004


Sure, but what about a tasty rabbit?
posted by NortonDC at 5:36 PM on October 6, 2004


Here's the kicker: If he raises €999,999, he still gets to eat the bunny. I think he deserves both.
posted by eyeballkid at 5:53 PM on October 6, 2004


That's like 1.20 million dollars, tho--I think rabbits should eat his greedy ass.
posted by amberglow at 6:00 PM on October 6, 2004


domestic rabbit doesn't taste that good. so says my father in law. i've only ever eaten wild rabbit. it's good barbecued.

but i gotta say... you rescue a rabbit, and then threaten to eat it? that's just wrong on some level. he's cute and so sad looking. i think it's the "i trust and depend on you" angle that makes me unhappy about this. i wouldn't eat one of my cats. they trust me to take care of them and not to hurt them. you aren't supposed to break that kind of a deal. it's different with a wild rabbit. they don't trust me, and don't depend on me. and i'm probably not a very good shot, so the odds are heavily in favor of the rabbit...

Newsflash--Scary people all over the world take in animals incapable of caring for themselves in the wild, keep them for long periods, care for them, nurture them, and then kill them for food.

We call them "farmers."

I'll find this guy and eat him for a lot less than 1M €. And I'm normally a vegetarian.

man that's nuts. i can't believe he's actually got 40k odd euros. lemme go find a good dozen bunnies. that ought to be worth a bunch more, right?

I will not negotiate with terrorist bunny abductors.

NortonDC - filmgoerjuan got close :

Some call them "farmers", others call them

Terrorists!

______________


Human beings get kidnapped and brutally slain for want of a fraction of this cutest-of-cute bunny's ransom.

Of course, why should I elevate real, flawed, ugly humans over fuzzy and impossibly cute bunnies ?

Why, I ask ?

That rabbit photo is amazing. Looks almost fake in its lepusesque perfection. The paws are in a mornful praying position and its eyes are incredibly pleading.

What's with the purse on the left in the photo? Assuming this is a (straight) man, what girl would stay with him while he's doing this?

Earlier this year, I ate the rabbit that played the Easter Bunny at one of the high end hotels in DC.

Dude, I have two rabbits, one of which I would gladly serve up for a donation of a mere hundred bucks. I figure she's got enough meat on her for a dinner for four, plus someone can keep her pelt for a hat or single slipper. Nothing says yummy like bunny in the tummy!

As for my rabbit, Robocop, you'll take him to the wok from my cold, dead hands.

ps to the SO who lurks on MeFi - I AM KIDDING mostly- Grendel is safe and please do not hit me with a frying pan

I gotta agree with XQUZYPHYR. He is the cutest fucking bunny I've ever seen. It's like his cuteness is calling to me. Inviting me. I'm freaking mesmerized by that bunny's cuteness.

And I hate bunnies.

jpoulos - without all the photoshop airbrushing I bet that's one ugly ass wabbit.

Heh! Like coldchef, I thought "that doesn't sound right" just after I posted it, too. I'm not sure I'm totally kidding though. At this point I think some part of me finds the idea of eating a human asshole more palatable than eating an innocent bunny.

Wow. "...eating a human asshole..." sounds even worse.

I would. This is audacious and hilarious.
posted by orange swan at 8:16 AM on October 7, 2004


If he were really smart he'd have two competing funds, one to save the rabbit and one to eat it. Highest amount wins it.

I'd donate to the "eat" fund.

Where is "eatitlive" when we really need him?
posted by onlyconnect at 9:15 AM on October 7, 2004


Who says he even HAS a rabbit? Scams like this are so ridiculous, I was laughing the entire time I read it. Mostly at anyone who would donate money to this loser.
