"What have you got there? Babies?"

"Oh, all right. I won't bug you then. But I wish you would go live somewhere else."

= what I just said, verbatim, to a rabbit, that I tried to scare away and then saw was crouching over some freakish looking squiggly things.

Nina would have provided a picture.

I figured you were talking to the new neighbors.

Matt Drachenberg said...

I mean, that what I would have been saying.

Death to vermin.

Anna said...

Aw, baby rabbits. Can we have a picture?

Ann Althouse said...

Jim: You want me to further scare the poor creature?

Bunny nuggets!

Borrow a dog. Tie him up in the yard. The bunnies will relocate.

Of course, baby bunnies are pretty fragile. Some of them will probably die from the stress of moving burrows, and the loss of mom's attention while she looks for a new home.

Bunny murderer!

A disproportionate response!

"But I wish you would go live somewhere else."

She will.

It may take a while.

Tell the lawnmower guys.

Feel generous about yourself.

You deserve it.

Good luck.

Mary, you are banned from this blog. Any further comments are regarded as harassment. Maybe you haven't seen this yet. But you are not to post here again, even to respond to this.

I can't believe Mary posted again, deliberately doing the exact thing I said I regarded as harassment. I'm not here to delete your posts, Mary. I'm requiring you not to post.

You are a former student of mine, and you are a fool to embarrass yourself here like this. I expect you to stop now. I hope you realize that
I could simply reveal your full name, which would be damaging to you, considering that it will be easily found on a Google search.

Find something else to do.

Now.

Congratulations, Ann. You've got a stalker.

I'm surprised too - I'd have thought that any former student of yours would have a brain in her head.

Has anyone here ever heard a baby rabbit cry? Very loud & shrill. I never knew rabbits could vocalize but they can and very LOUD, too. My mom rescued a litter of baby rabbits a few years ago after the mama rabbit went missing. Mom ,in her typical Asian hospitality mothering, overfed the poor things and only one made it long enough to get adopted by a friend.

Was it bissage that posted the link to the sad rabbit the other day? I wonder if that site has a picture of a happy rabbit. It would sure lighten things up a bit.

It's duck season.

No, it's wabbit season.

Duck season!

Wabbit season!

There are sooooo many rabbits this year!

Bissage said...

Internet Ronin: If you want to make bunny happy, here's what you should do.

wv: "gnnegqq." All that and a bag of chips!

Internet Ronin said...

Thanks, Bissage! I thought you'd have a rabbit up your sleeve ;-) Pretty soon, Ann is going to have them up her sleeve, under the floorboards, in the backyard, and everywhere else.

The term Fibonacci number comes to mind (cursor down to the third paragraph under "Origins")
