Beware of the "Reverse-Snorgle"!

Watch out, People. It could happen to you.

Tiny bunnies may attempt to snorgle your face clean off—you've got to be ready.

My eyes! My eyyyyyyyyes!

Barbara B. says Rabbit.org has even more evidence of reverse-snorgling. Beware.

I think that's a dust bunny--nothing that cute could possibly be real.

I wanna volunteer to be a reverse bunny snorgling tester. Where do I sign up?

Also, Miss Meg (or Teho), just a note that the link under the pic comes up as rabbits.og, not rabbits.org--so it don't go nowhere.

I have to admit to being somewhat confused regarding the difference between "snorrrrrrff" and "snorgle". Can snorgling only occur between animate objects (people and kittehs, for example), while snorrrrrrffling occurs when an animate object (a wabbit, for example), snorgles an inanimate object (like a cup of coffee)?

are we setting tight for an all-bunneh wednesday? Fine by me. Now about this reverse snorgling. I would definitely submit myself to be judge in the Snorglin Bunneh 2007 title match.

My Gods, but that little sweetie looks just about right to powder my face with. And if the wee bun gives kisses before, during and after the application, all the better!

When bunny goes into reverse-snorgle is there a warning beeeep-beeeep-beeeep?

Check out Pik #1 in the sequence - I think he would be big enough for everyone on Teh Qte to snorgle at the same time...

It's the tineh killer rabbit!

Method : Look cute and cuddly and small. Apply Cuteness Rule #28 if conditions require.

Once the human gets down to snorgle--attack!

If this little bun would do my eyebrows, I would give him or her a large organic carrot tip.

Ali -- y'mean his *buns*, right?

Theo
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 08:27 AM

TJ: I believe "snorrffing" involves actually inhaling a liquid, whereas "snorgling" does not. I could be wrong tho...

Dustbunny
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 08:27 AM

Bunny kisses are the BESTEST! My bunny will groom my eyebrows and sometimes sniffle-lick my nose. It's the ultimate compliment - they are treating your like another bunny!
Though I could have done without the hip new do my Pepper-bunny decided I needed. She nibbled my bangs kind of short and spiky on one side when I was watching TV one night.

Wendy
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 08:31 AM

Dustybunny - I believe that inhaling a liquid is technically referred to as "drowning"... ;)

Tony James
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 08:32 AM

teej, p'haps "snorfff" is a noun/sound and "snorgle" is the verb...

jaypo
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 08:34 AM

Where do I apply for this position?!

NebraskaErin
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 08:42 AM

jaypo - So, we can snorgle a snorfff?

pyrit
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 08:46 AM

Wendy: I'm looking for a new hairdresser. Can I borrow your bun?

murkeymuffley
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 08:47 AM

I believe that "snorffffing" is actually INhaling, while "snorgling" is more EXhaling.
But I could be wrong. (And it wouldn't be the FIRST time either.)

 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 08:49 AM

In fact, might "snorfffing" be similar to "huffing"???

you guys r silly
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 08:51 AM

I only WISH this could happen to me! The soft fur!!

becky
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 08:53 AM

The eyes! Not the eyes!!!
Cute, no doubt, but just a wee bit nerve-wracking.

Redzilla
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 08:57 AM

Can a huff morph into a snorff?

pyrit
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 08:57 AM

I think he's not reverse snorgling, but actually buffing up his forehead. That rabbit is no doubt a hard working immigrant from the Watership Down looking for the American Dream in the New Country by being paid carrots for wiping people's foreheads. In the next few years, he'll be a fat cat/rabbit living by Central Park with a box of Cuban celery sticks.

Theo:
thanks for the reference back to the CO Glossary...I forgot to check there first.
But - is "snorf" in the glossary? If not, what IS the def. for snorf?
pyrit and I look to you for this answer, please.
Yours,
YGRS

Teej, I could be wrong (I guess that's possible) but I think snorrrfffing is the kind of liquid inhaling what you does with your mouf, thereby leaving your nose free to breave at the very same time, thus preventing the possibility of drownifying. Like when you put your mouf on the top of a pool of liquid, such as soup in a large spoon, and slllrrrppp noisily. I think that's snorfing. Not to be confused with snishing, which is what babee kittehs do (and likely babee bunnehs, too) when they're just learning to drink from a bowl, and, not knowing better, they stick their whole face in. Shortly after doing that, they discover that their nose breathing apparatus has milk in it, producing a quick "snish". Snorfing is to be preferred to snishing, if you want to survive to tell your grandkittehs or grandbunnehs about it.

Meanwhile, snorgling involves rubbing ones face into the object of the snorgle, possibly while breathing out (see also: furbert). No danger of drownifying there.

And there you have it. The snorf, snish, and snorgle world of useta hada kitteh.

Now I'd better go back to work. No bunnehs here! (drat...)

useta hada kitteh
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 09:09 AM

useta hada:
I could also be wrong (again) but I doubt if snorfff is the same thing as slllrrrppp. And while there certainly is the snish factor, don't forget the schmork which must always procede the snish.
Glorking and squoinking, now, are another matter completely.

you guys r silly
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 09:14 AM

I believe that snishing may be related fuffling in some instances...
"The cat lowers its nose into water and exhales. This is followed by whiffling, spluttering, sneezing, snorting, head-shaking and a generally confused expression. Bath-foam appears to trigger attacks of fuffling in some cats. It may also be linked to interesting items seen in the water e.g. goldfish, food-crumbs, greeblingz. Fuffling is most common during kittenhood although even quite elderly may suffer an occasional bout."

Tony James
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 09:25 AM

It's the greeblingz that I'm really concerned about...

Danger alert re. baby bunny snorgling face: He/she doesn't realize that sharp baby nails are probably hurtin' the guy's face. ;)

Bunnies do have a thing for human heads. If I'm lying on the floor, Her Nibs will jump onto my head and *stand there,* as if my skull was the best vantage point in the world... (I think she's trying to say that she's the Boss, not me.)

awww. such a sweetie. my rabbit just died two days ago.. she was almost 9. it's nice to see a little bunny hopping about again.

katy
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 09:35 AM

Bunneh communities have a grooming order, sort of the opposite of the pecking-order. Bunnehs groom their superiors, and are groomed by their inferiors. So, when you pet a bunneh's head, you're essentially saying "I bow to you, oh superior bunneh" - which is why they tend to like it so much. On the other hand, gettin' your forehead nibbled IS the ultimate bunneh compliment. You're not only being treated as another bunneh, but as a SUPERIOR bunneh :)

And let's be clear, too, that snorffing is preferable to snishing in most polite circles. At our house the kitteh who snorfs is giggled at and petted. The kitteh who snishes is answered with cries of "Aaaah! Cat snot in my water!"

Redzilla
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 09:39 AM

Snorgling refers to your own schnozz snorgling. Snorffing refers to the schnozzee doing the snorgling.

pyrit
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 09:40 AM

Bunnies also schnoofle.

E. Collison
 |  Jan 03, 2007 at 09:45 AM

on the other paw, maybe the bunneh's playing "eye know a secret" -- he couldn't figure out where the guys ears were, since people ears are not constructed properly, so he's trying to whisper the secret into the guy's eye.

Oh. Oh. C'mere little bun, I wanna dust bunny snorgle!

Happy New Year peeps!

May we take a moment to reflect on this poor guy's predicament? I mean. Letting a wee bun brow-eat him like that.
