I thought they were going to be wearing glasses.
I'm slightly disappoint?

Man, 2 from the left is OUT COLD. That's a good sleep. The others look like they're having a hard time getting situated.

I just got a set of these from Pottery Barn. They're sitting on the mantle right now. Unfortunately, one got knocked over and shattered and they don't sell singles, so I'll probably put them away but I like the homey artisanal feeling they give to the living room. Maybe they'll go on sale after Christmas.

Don't buy more rabbits if they're that brittle, Slarty.

I hadn't realized that bunnies were so much like cats, in terms of how they fit into small spaces. Thanks for sharing this; it's exactly what I needed today!

"Excuse me, waiter, this glass has a hare in it."

QUIET, OR EVERYONE WILL WANT ONE!"


So, back in 1967, at the end of our Freshman year in College, four of us were making a spring break trip from Jackson, Michigan to Ft. Lauderdale. We had loaded one bed and 10 cases of beer into the back of Phil's Ford Econoline van (the only vans back them were commercial vans, no windows in the back, no back seat) and headed down I-75.

We drove non-stop, and hit breakfast time when we arrived in Adel, Georgia. Whoever was driving pulled off the highway and hit the first resturant, The Green Frog Restaurant/gift shop/truck stop.

Phil, who could fall in love with an armadillo if it looked at him twice, instantly took a liking to the waitress (who was, I will grant, much better looking than most of Phil's attempted conquests, plus she had an adorable southern accent).

From the moment we arrived Phil was attempting to talk her into joining us on our journey south, becoming increasingly obnoxious with each attempt. We tried to get him to cool his jets a bit, but he was determined...the waitress was becoming increasingly annoyed as time went on.

Our food arrived, we started eating, then Phil stopped, examined his eggs closely, frowned and called the waitress over.

"Miss", he said, " there's a fly in my eggs!"... Sure enough, there on top of his eggs was an insect.

The waitress looked at him, looked at his plate, leaned closer, looked at Phil and smiled.."No, that's not a fly, it doesn't have any wings." winked at him and walked away.

Phil picked the insect off his food and decided to eat it anyway.

It didn't stop Phil from being a jerk to most of the girls he met, but he stopped complaining about his food.

I grew up with bunnies, they are indeed a lot like cats! The main differences being they have more fragile health, and they don't make many sounds. Other than that, they can be total weirdos and are loads of fun. My favorite bunny was a lop-eared black-and-white quirkbutt who loved to rest her chin on a foot of the piano when I played, her eyes closed, nose twitching happily.

languagehat it took me an hour to check just two pages of MeFi search results :) a lot of them are 404s... but here is pancake-head! (the original post is one of those 404s, but the archive.org link is on the wiki page)

I was more in the mood for the pike catching a duckling.

As a lazy reader who tends to skim, I think I can speak for all lazy readers who tend to skim when I say that my main takeaway from this story is that, other serious problems aside, Phil possibly has a thing for armadillos.

Oh my god the cuteness! But why are they in glasses? Is this a thing? Twenty three comments in, nobody else thinks that's odd?
posted by lemonade at 1:49 PM on December 19, 2015


The extremely weird rabbity cartoons Usavich are still available at MTVAsia's website, but only for certain countries or those able to fake it.

I have made a number of "OMG BUNNIES!!!" posts at metachat.org, which was specifically set up for posting stuff too silly for TheRealFilter (and where Italy's Giant Pink Bunny is an unofficial mascot - although the original links on BOTH MeFi and MeChat are 404):
Epic Bunny Adventure, Vogue Magazine Bunnies, Boppity Bunny, Bunny Beer Cart, Book Bunny, TV Bunnies, ASCII Bunny, Bunny Fences, Bunny Massage, How Did “Bunny” Become a Cutesy Word for “Rabbit”? among others...

Yes, I too wondered how these bunnies had got wedged into glasses and why. For a wee while I was a bit anxious about it and wanted one of them to get out just to prove they could but then the one on the right squished its nose against the side and it was so cute I stopped caring.

I've only owned one rabbit, but I'm pretty sure that given the upward velocity they can create, that even baby bunnies could exit those glasses if they wanted to. I suspect that like cats they occasionally enjoy small cozy spaces.

I think the fourth one is actually a miniature llama.

I remember one day years ago, probably over a decade ago, that the front page here was filled with bunny posts.


That was a good day.

By the way, its actually one duck and three bunnies.

Oh, man, if the glasses were just out of the dishwasher and still warm I'd do that too.

Did the bunnies get in the glasses willingly?

I'm pretty sure she had four sleepy baby bunnies that she popped into glasses for a couple of minutes of amusement, but as someone who has popped many a cat into paper bags or other odd positions for similar reasons, I do not feel I can judge :)

posted by metaquarry at 6:22 AM on December 20, 2015


I have seen this so many times and nobody is talking about how when the fourth bunny slips down into the glass it looks FUCKING WEIRD.

Everyone's all like "OMG" and like "AWWWW" and "SQUEE" and I'm like "ARE YOU EVEN SEEING THIS?"

The third one does look like it's trying yo escape...but then gets overwhelmed by sleepiness!
posted by Omnomnom at 3:02 PM on December 20, 2015


I sent this to a friend on skype while she was mid-rant about the injustices in her life, and she was instantly rendered inoperative. What followed was about a minute of what I can only describe as post-catnip behaviour. This is powerful stuff.
