Sure send out RH Hardin bait.

You really are a shameless hussy.

A rabbit-free yard this morning.

My Watership Down bubble has been burst. Where is Bigwig when you need him?

Meade said...

California Rabbit: Hey! I was just trying to marry him. Why'd you have to go and peck me?

California Hen: It's the law, rabbit! If hens can't lie down, stand up, fully extend their limbs, and turn around and freely marry other hens, NOBODY can!

Meade said...

California Rabbit: But you hens ARE free to lie down, stand up, fully extend your limbs, and turn around and freely marry other hens! Proposition 2 passed!

California Hen: It did? Oh. I must have been out with the bird flu that day.

Rabbits never play in the sacred circle. Cluck Cluck!

"Chickens, the police of the animal world."

And they taste just like iguana, alligator, monkey, squirrel, and seal pup.

What good is a yard without a white chicken guarding the perimeter, eh rh?

Chickens -- the most reliably tasty member of the animal world.

EDH said...

I like how @0:20 the white rabbit looks askance at the chicken, and the chicken gestures "don't make me open a can of whoop-ass on you."

You can tell even as the chickens nod to each other and leave the scene that later they're planning to put the rabbits in separate hutches and play good chicken, bad chicken.

Man, it's getting so bad that even rabbits can't screw around anymore.

oddly disturbing

Now do you believe that chickens have feelings? I'm glad Prop 2 passed.

Now if only we could get a video of a bunch of police chickens beating up on a rabbit there would be grounds for an utterly tasteless Rodney King joke.

Bissage said...

"Is that another chicken joke?"

Chickens are tough.

I had a pet crow about 20 years ago, and he used to kick the crap out of my barn cats. He would grab the cats by the tail and drag them around. The cats would freak. At first, the cats would see him walking around and think this would be an easy meal. Didn't turn out that way.

The major evolutionary advantage of chickens is that they taste good. Perhaps if dodo birds tasted like chicken they would still be with us.

bearbee said...

I dunno. Rabbits ain't pushovers and can bite hard, kick hard, and move fast.

Rabbit Beating Up A Crow

Despite the title, that there is a hare kiling a crow.

Trooper York said...

Fiver: There's something very queer about the warren this evening...
Hazel: Is it dangerous?
Fiver: It's not exactly danger, it's... oh, I don't know. Something oppressive... like thunder.
Fiver: I feel it too. I think there will be lighting and thunder soon.
Hazel: I think its Bigwig and Strawberry. Because they are queer you know. Ever since they became lovers and wanted to get married the warren has been in an uproar.
Fiver: What do you mean?
Hazel: All the Chicken’s are really upset. They say a marriage should be between an mommy and a daddy bunny. Not two daddies. Or two mommies.
Fiver: My God, why do they care? It doesn’t have any to do with them after all.
Hazel: I don’t know but there have been a lot of incidents. Just yesterday they were kissing in the courtyard and the Chickens attacked.
Fiver: I hate foul play like that.
Hazel: Yeah I hate Chevy Chase too!
Fiver: What?
