After watching that video about a dozen times, I just KNOW I'm going to be distracted all day, wondering what "Vic's SureStart" and "Mattel Foods Barbecue Sauce" are.

That's too bad, You Guys R Silly. Luckily for you, here's Not That Mike's Not That Descriptive Video Service, with a summary of the action:

"OK, there's this bunny on the floor, and the TV is playing in the background -- it sounds like either Masterpiece Theater or CSPAN. After a moment, the bunny begins to float towards the camera, staring directly into the viewer's eyes with a look of serenity and absolute knowledge."

"For a few agonizing moments that seem like years, the bunny just looks at you, never moving, until your soul aches with longing. Then, rays of pure love issue forth from the bunny's eyes, bathing you in warm joy. All of your dead relatives and pets are with you and greet you warmly, and you become calm and aware that nothing in this world can hurt you. Also, you get a million dollars."

"Then, the bunny flops over and the TV says something about Vic's SureStart and Mattel Foods Barbecue Sauce."

I just want to squeeeeeeze that bun! And chew on his ears . . . just a little.

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 08:35 AM

NTMTOM: thankyouverymuch. From another person who can't watch this video, at least till she gets home tonight at a very late hour, and must suffice herself upon the Komments...*sniff*...

on not that mike - that was the best desctiption ever !! i watched the movie too many times but and you managed to describe it perfectly :D gotta love the floppage

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 08:38 AM

now i miss my bunnies aww its so fuzzeley !!

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 08:39 AM

We like to refer to it as 'floppage'. And it's what we strive for when petting our cat.

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 08:40 AM

Hey all of you bun people - never having been owned by a bun, I have questions!

Well, a question anyway.

I noticed, after the awesome floppage, the bun paused (so that we could admire the cuteness) and then appeared to rub his (her?) head on the floor.

Now, I have a cat who does a similar move - flop and rub, and I assumed that the cat was claiming the floor as his own.

Buns don't do that, do they? Do they even have scent glands in their wee bitty faces with which they claim items?

Bunny thought process:

human's foot? Mine!
coffee table leg? Mine!
door frame? Mine!

fanks, people. I am here to be edumakated.

rpennefe -- re the head smodging after the flooping... I do that when I snuggle into my pillow all the time -- I just figured he was gettin' all cozy and comfterbuls. (Gotta fluff up that hardwood floor a bit!) The nose twitchin' is what gets me. Long ago in a place far away I had me lots of bunbuns and I loved to watch them noses!

useta hada kitteh
 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 08:56 AM

Head smodging! I love it! That has become my new favorite phrase!

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 08:59 AM

rpennefe: This inquiring mind also wants to know! It looked exactly like the "cheeky-rubby" that my cats like to do. I am assured by the vet that they do it to spread their happy scent everywhere in my house. (Mine! indeed) Do buns also have cheeky-rubby happy scent? Please, bun people, tell us!

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 09:00 AM

Hee hee~very much enjoy video AND most excellent video description!

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 09:05 AM

I lurve you!
Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
Your vivid explanation of the video was marvelous...I felt myself pulled into the
and am now laying here rolling around in my crisp wonderful $millions$...
*Smooches*to*you* for your thoughtfullness towards us videologically impaired peeps...

rpennefe, rabbits are subtle but they still lay claim. They have a whozywatsit under their chin. They sort of incorporate the sniffing and the rubbing into one deft maneuver...Some people don't even realize they've been marked. "One quick swipe and you're mine! Bwahahahaha!"

Somebody shot that bunny!

I love it when Cinnamon does this! We fostered a chinchilla rex for awhile that would do that constantly and in public. When I worked at a wild bird feed store, I would take her with me to run around. One day she did a flop like that while I was showing her to a customer. The customer freaked and screamed "Oh No! Did she have a heart attack??" Of course that woke the rabbit up, who disapproved of such a reaction to her relaxing flop.

Love those crazy bunnies!

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 09:23 AM

I was mesmerized by the nose-twitching. Can a bun use its nose to indicate contentment? I honestly think this one did.

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 09:26 AM

NTMTOM: I collapse in a fit of giggles...at work.

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 09:29 AM

Squee!!!! The twitchitudinous floppage!
Not That Mike The Other Mike, first the awesome video play by play, and then the hysterical Bunny Head-On commercial! Genius!!! Will you be my Schmoopie?

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 09:37 AM

Am I the only one who worries that that bun had a heart attack? I mean, he gets pretty still there at the end...

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 09:37 AM


It does look a bit like death throes, but it's totally not. They do it all the time -- s'okay. After the first violent fit of relaxation you get kind of used to it.

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 09:45 AM

the nose twitchage reminds me of the way my cats twitch when they're dreaming...
dreamin' of chasin' birdies and mousies I'm sure!

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 09:47 AM

No, PuppyMomma, that's not a heart attack - that's a very relaxed, happy bun! We call the whole routine "dead bunny" in my house, because some of the buns throw themselves down so hard, and then lie there like they're, well, dead. Only lasts a few seconds though, especially if they hear the "veggie puffs" box!

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 09:49 AM

WR, "violent fit of relaxation" is my new favourite phrase of all times. Plus it would make a great name for a rock band.

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 10:04 AM

Cheryl: You can only be my schmoopie if you bring me Vic's SureStart, and fourteen gallons of Mattel Foods Barbecue Sauce!

Then, you must cut down the mightiest tree in the forest, with ... A HERRING!

Harshing Mellow Alert---

Today's paper reported that 150 unwanted dogs and cats are being dumped in Phoenix area shelters A DAY! Some from families, others from breeders who can't sell all of their wares. There are more than can possibly be adopted. Please, please, PLEASE spay and neuter!!!! I know I'm preaching to the choir here, so thanks to all of you who do so much for the shelter babehs.

/harshing mellow

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 10:06 AM

I'm pretty sure it's a "Bic SureStart"- aka a type of barbecue lighter.

Also- hee hee! I can just imagine the little "whump" noise the bunny must have made.

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 10:07 AM

Yeah, I was scared the first time I saw it happen. My friend and I thought we would have a bunny date with our two bunnies (neutered/spayed) and her bunny did that, I had never seen it before. Then later that week my bunny started to do that. He is such a copycat.

As for the nose twitching, yes you sometimes can tell the mood by how fast their noses are going. But you really have to know your bunny to tell if it is a normal nose twitch or not.

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 10:08 AM

OMGosh - Birdchick of the Disapproving Rabbits is here! I bet I could quote the captions on your bunny pages from memory...

Nah peeps, this bun is none other than Deb Carlos' own Cakes, who was featured here


and here

(And yes, to add to the chorus: bunnies chin things. And bunnies love to flop when they're happy.)

Thank you, Dragonrose!

And, from another source, I've learned that the name of the other product is not "Mattel Foods Barbecue Sauce," but in fact "Parker Brothers Foods Barbecue Sauce."

My cat does the
when she lays down to sleep next to me each night!
She gets as close as possible to me (my face or my chest) and is kneading like
one minute, and then
crashes down on her side next to/on top of me the next!!!
Then she purrs and smiles, and I purr and smiles, and everybody is purry and smiley and smooshed on top of each other after the floppage...
