Amazing bunny calendar makes all your wishes come true! »
Wondering what to get your friend who loves Wes Andersen movies just a little too much? Look no further than this amazing rabbit calendar, featuring one bunny in twelve movie outfits, all shot against a beautiful paper background that would not be out of place in the opening sequence from that one movie where the creepy camp kids totally did it. Sunrise something. I don’t know. I got it at the red box.
This calendar, starring a rabbit named Benjamin Linus (because this motherfucka is D-I-G-N-I-F-I-E-D!) is the creation of Lauren Gates, the proprietor of The BBunny Shop on Etsy. Lauren may be the brains behind this operation but Benjamin Linus is the face. And what a face it is! Bedecked in costume after glorious costume, Benjamin Linus blazes through each scene! Sometimes on a magic carpet!
I’m most impressed with the fact that Benjamin Linus was so willing. I once tried to take a picture of my rabbit (Miss Cleo) and she just looked at me as she pooped out pellet after pellet in defiance. Very Les Mis. (In next year’s calendar I would like to see Benjamin all us do either prostitute Fantine or dying Fantine.)
You should purchase ten copies of this calendar and give them to all of your friends! All proceeds go to a rabbit rescue shelter in Connecticut.
Wait, how can we get two of these to the Deschanel sisters? Does anyone know them?
This is Mark’s post but he’s not so good at the internet so I had to post it for him. Please direct all anger and accolades to him.
Shop at Float through Sunday to help the House Rabbit Society! »
Rabbits are amazing, the House Rabbit Society is a wonderful organization, and you could do worse than buying a shirt with their adorable logo from Float, where $8 from every item purchased will go to our bunny-helping pals at the HRS. But this deal only lasts through 8 a.m. Monday, so get on it!
Have you watched Isa’s video of her wild backyard bunny, Falafel, aka my new best friend? Man I wish we had wild bunnies in New York. Rats are fine and all, but there’s nothing like a lightning-quick little bunny darting into your path and surprising you with cuteness. Adorability sneak attack!

Happy belated Easter from our favorite Pacific Northwest Leporidae, Bells and Nuage! Is there ever a bad time for a bunny video? Of course not.
Nevermind Eggs, Throw an Easter Beer Hunt! »
I don’t usually celebrate Easter, but this brilliant idea has me pondering a party. It’s apparently a THING in Europe: Sending your buddies all over the yard/park/house in search of pastel-painted delicious adult beverages. Not only is this much more vegan-friendly than hiding eggs (assuming you pick your beers well; barnivore.com), it’s also SO MUCH TASTIER. Beer, people! On a Sunday morning! With pastels!
You can get fancy and invent rules, winners, blind taste-tests, etc. Or you can be lazy and just hide cans of PBR in your roommate’s bathrobe. Whatever you do, tell us about it! Get the full scoop on Food Republic.

Nuage is a bunny of discerning tastes. Here, he demonstrates his disdain for mass-market apple branches, and his absolute love of domestic apple branches.
You want a bundle for your precious little gnawer? Get some from Vegansaurus pal Potentially Nervous! Just $20 for two pounds of branches, including shipping, and your buns (and chinchillas, and other tooth-serious animals).
I love a rabbit who knows what he likes (read: all rabbits). I want to offer two kinds of everything bunnies like to Nuage to see which he prefers. It’s like the Pepsi challenge, but way cuter and 100 percent chemical-free.
Attack bunnies are on the attack in Denver! »
The local news reports on an extremely urgent problem: rabbits are eating the wiring of cars parked at the Denver Airport. To their credit, the parking lots seem to be using bunny-friendly methods of discouraging this furry vandalism, namely bigger fences and predator urine to scare the goobers away.
I’ve parked my car at this airport a lot lately and had no bunny damage. Maybe the bunnies know I’m vegan from my Vegan Van bumper sticker, and thus spare me from their reign of terror? Maybe this is an organized rabbit campaign against animal abuse? Pretty indirect, bunnies. Let’s rethink your strategy.
Oh, bunnies. Can’t live without them, can’t let them near your car.
