As another April 20th leaves us behind, try not to remember it for Hitler's birthday and all the screwed up events it's inspired. Instead, remember it as the day President Jimmy Carter was almost viciously mauled by a bloodthirsty Swamp Rabbit.

A family member of mine swears that he saw a photo of this incident - rabbit in the water, (clearly recognisable) and Carter with his oar in walloping position. Anyone know where to find this photo? I'd love to see it...

It was a nutria, not a rabbit.

Here's looking forward to the inevitable, "what was the deal with G.W. Bush and the killer pretzel" question in the Straight Dope fifteen years from now. (Great link, BTW; I vividly remember the SNL skits but not the incident to which they refered :)

It was Adolf himself, reincarnated as a small, uncomfortable swamp creature and coming after Jimmy.
