Holy god those are some big buns

We lunched with these two ladies today. One of them is a new mother of seven. Not sure which one.

The other one apparently never heard a rabbit joke in her life; she utterly spurned the attention of the hired stud buck. Which is probably just as well. What on earth are they going to do with nine of these monsters?

They are British Giants. And how.

Have a good weekend, everyone. And remember …

Ya know, I’ve TRIED squeezing a Runny Babbit over my coffee, but instead of cream, I get Organo-ballbearings…

Sir, would you like a bun with your dinner?

Why yes, yes I would, but all you have are these bread-roll things…

That picture came about because of this comment:

Did you know that rabbit milk is extremely nutritious? Well, that’s what Wikipedia says.

The woman who sits in the next cubicle disturbed a rabbit’s nest in her back yard and she’s worried that mama won’t come back, so we were looking stuff up about it on the web. Turns out, rabbits are lousy mothers. They show up once a day for about five minutes, so their milk has to be powerful.

The phrase “rabbit’s milk is extremely nutritious” is going through my head in a loop.


It’s on a post from 2008 and I started to link to it and then realized it was the first post where I mentioned that my cat had gone missing. He never came back.

Now I r sad 🙁

Was it Helen Mirren in that movie about the nekkid old lady calendar? “We’re going to need bigger buns.”

Thank you, A. G. Tiger, Mr. Dragon and I needed the morning laugh! (P.S. Have you given up in IJ?)

You made me click on that link and now we can’t be friends anymore. It’s difficult to type this because I am alternately clutching a throw pillow and sobbing uncontrollably.

Rabbits are evil anyway. Here’s cinematic proof 1) Harvey (drove poor Jimmy insane) 2) holy shit what the FUCK is that thing in Donnie Darko 3) Roger (was totally boning Betty Boop on the side) 4) Thumper.

LOL.. I had to go out to my car to get something at work, and one of the resident runny-babbits that live in the bushes under our window was right by the door. Poor thing levitated about 3 feet when I opened the door, then it ran to the flower patch by the front door.

Meh, at least I know that they’re still there, and that the local Coyotes haven’t eaten them…

Frit: Glad you and Mr. Dragon got a good laugh!

As to the IJ site: For now. Definitely a hiatus until I feel like I want to start posting again. Email’s the same way, I haven’t read my personal email since this past Christmas.

No more buns showing up on the wildlife camera. I reckon Stoaty had ’em.

Anybody have Amy Winehouse in the deadpool?

Average lifespan of a bunny if I have anything to say about it: 6 months.

Damn damn damn! I’d been picking Amy for a while but dropped her for Larry king Dead! Show. Thought about going back to her but who could resist the chance to choose Fidel?
For the record, Amy did not have big buns whatever that mewns for the longevity theory posited above…

Does it make me a heartless bitch, that, when I saw the Drudge headline, I wondered who had her in the deadpool?
Of course, I came right over to check.
Yeah, I’m all empathetic n’ shit.

If that’s not empathetic, I don’t know what is.
I mean, hoping a fellow commenter gets the dick.

Holy shit, I thought you guys were kidding till I checked Drudge. 27 years old? That’s fucking horrific. And then there’s the news from Norway. I think I’m going back to bed and to contemplate how bloody awful the world can be.

Amy Winehouse, alas. Bummer of a way to start my Saturday.

She joins Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, Jimmy[sic] Hendrix, & Janis Joplin in the list of people who have made the world a slightly better place by their absence.

If you’re a heartless bitch, Janna, so am I(!) It was my first thought, too.

I’m usually a heartless bitch about celebrities that off themselves with drugs, but somehow I can’t manage that now. It was always so obvious that the Hounds of Hell were at La Winehouse’s heels…for whatever reason. I felt sorry for her. If anyone needed to requiescat in pace, she did.

And yeah—who had her in the Pool?

Comment from mongo
Time: July 23, 2011, 9:49 pm

I am of the belief that everyone in this dead pool thought the same thing when they heard the news. So, don’t be so hard on yourselves. Wondering who picked her when my husband just told me was my first reaction and then I asked him when it happened, worried I missed the next round.

Hart uv stone. I haz it.

Yeah, my sensitive daughter came downstairs this morning and said (and I quote, explains he quotation marks) “who had Amy Winehouse on the Dead Pool?”

Someone raised that girl right…and it might even have been me.

But with my son in Oslo yesterday evening, we are not enjoying the news out of Norway, that’s for sure. 🙁

The Norway thing is all kinds of bad news. Thanks loads, Tim McVeighvik.

Doesn’t look like anybody had Winehouse in the Pool this round, poor effed up thing that she was.

I always heard telling a woman she had big buns was rude.

It is, Stoaty. It’s spooky knowing my kid was there and heard the kaboom. Too.close.to.home.

It is worth noting that SOMEBODY apparently was playing games with his Facebook page AFTER he was in custody:

I wonder WHO would do that?

Rats, I’m not even in the dead pool and I came here to see who had Winehouse. I would have checked yesterday but I was PC-free for the day, hooray!

Dead poolers beware of imitations! I noticed in the local supermarket that Mr Kipling makes spotted dick bars with a custard-flavoured topping. I somehow managed to resist the temptation . . .

They’re not too bad, David. Nothing but genu-wine Aunty’s Spotted Dick is good enough for the Dead Pool.

I was newsless for most of the weekend. Turned on the rude tube for the weather and….ack. What’s the world coming to? At least MS. Weasel gives us fluffy bunnies, even if they are GIANT.

I still don’t believe that they are made in NZ …
