Beware, this is a Japanese bunny, which means it is EXTRA DEADLY, PEOPLE

The Japanese know cute. Unlike us Amurrrricans, who are cute posers at best, the Japanese live, eat, eat, sleep and breathe cuteness. Here is another example of them handing our asses to us on a silver Hello Kitty platter.



And the Perfect Lump Formation (PLF) here:


Not to mention this INVITATION TO SNORGLE

Pic #2: silky bunny loaf

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 10:52 AM

Kelly Mc: I detect a hint of mild disapproval in pic #1. I guess it's a universal bunny-wide phenom, but perhaps less extreme in Japanese buns.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 10:55 AM

Thank you for the invitation Meg, I think I shall...

(The tag for the third picture when you scroll your mouse over it is "smoosh yer face here")

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 10:56 AM

Gah! bunneh tummeh - must snorgle the softness... want to kees the soft toesies.

Speaking of Japanese bunnehs... does anyone remember the bunnehs in sweaters pics? The turtleneck sweater (no arms) on the prosh bun? Me will never forget!

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 10:57 AM

Wah! What a cuuuuuuuute bunny. I want, I want.

OMG- *splode*! I'm dead from the Qte!

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 10:57 AM

I'm thinking it would be the Amurrricans who need "eat" listed more than once.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 10:58 AM

that's some *loaf*.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 10:58 AM

Okay, that last picture just killed me.


 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:01 AM

o.m.g. ok, that did it for me too. dead over here.

Too poifect!! I would love to "smoosh my face here" but the glass won't let me!.

On the sad side...Easter is coming. Please remind your friends to "Make Mine Chocolate"! Don't give real live bunnehs as Easter gifts.

Now back to the QTE!!!1!

whoa, that is some high quality.

I badly need to snorgle a bunny.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:15 AM

anyone with a bunnie-foot-phobia??

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:15 AM

I think I just choked on my Squee. My eyes bulged at least.

It's 2:20 pm... have you had your bunny snorgles yet?

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:21 AM

He looks EXTRA disapproving!

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:24 AM


The third picture is just way too moishe!

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:26 AM

that is definatley a silk bunny loaf. I bow too you all in Japan, what a snorgalbe bun bun

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:28 AM

Squee!! Too snorgalitious! The last pic killed me and my coworkers here in Canada!!

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:29 AM

Bunny is adorable.
But the Japanese are not the masters of "cute". They still slaughter whales; definately not cute.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:30 AM

ohmy - I just saw these pictures of gigantic rabbits from germany. it's not exactly cute - but it IS impressive (20 pounds of bunny!)

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:31 AM

Now I know it is a bad idea to give live bunnies as a gift for Easters, but not if you are a confirmed Cuteologist who has been plannin to git yerself some o dat bunny-type cuteness for a long while. Disclaimer outta the way, we are getting bunnies for Easter! YAY! I can't wait! We are rescuing them from a shelter. Anyone have tips for a first time bunneh owner?

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:33 AM

In pic 1 this bunneh disapproves of imitation cute, but in pic 2 he's willing to let it slide if you *pic 3* smoosh your face here.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:33 AM

AWWWWW what a cute bun bun.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:38 AM

cutebabyfix-YAY to you for rescuing bunnehs!
I hope you got that I was talking about the unprepared and "surprise" gifts. I wish I could rescue a bunneh. I think my dog would think it was a snack just for her.

"Pic #2: silky bunny loaf"

With raisins inside!

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:41 AM

The tag for the first pic is "barooo" which is also perfect. And I think the disapproval shows up in the second pic--hunkered down and positively sulking.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:42 AM

Ha!Martha, I'm glad you approve.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:43 AM

"Perfect Lump Formation" is my new favorite phrase! I shall seek PLF in all that I do.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:54 AM

if something fluffy is sitting on a bed on a super clean tatami mat in japan, it's CUTE!

new category?

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:54 AM

That IS the perfect bunlump (or "eggbun" as Indy Bunny has taught me to say).

And he is much less disapproving than the Western wabbits.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 11:56 AM

I think this one models for Netsuke on his days off.

See a resemblence?


 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 12:03 PM

Cutebabyfix, what I wish I'd known as a first-time bunny owner was the best foods to keep bunny healthy. Here are some links:

The other *really* important thing is to have a veterinarian who understands rabbits. I thought any veterinarian would, but that proved not to be the case. My late rabbit Tidbit got an abscess, and the first vet I took him to did not know some important things about treating bunnies. By the time I got him to a vet more knowledgeable about rabbits, he was a very sick little guy.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 12:05 PM


I wouldn't want those buns to be dissaproving! ;)


 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 12:16 PM

OMG! That last pic is some kind of crazy brain-eating Jedi Disapproval. We're being disapproved and we don't even know it.
[scampers away, but only after snorgling exposed belly]

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 12:19 PM

omg, I'm such a nerd...I stopped staring at teh qte to think "eww, why would anyone save a photo as a PNG?"

Of course, then I got over it and went back to wanting to poke the bunneh in the belly.

Maybe I'm building up a tolerance and need to cut down on the CO for a while...

A little song here, for bunny picture number two, a little guy contemplating the theory of bunny-dom.

Sometimes it's hard to be a bunny.
Bein' warm, 'n loved,'n staying cross.
They'll bring snuggles,
Lovin' huggles,
You still have to tell them, go get lost.
And, though you love them, don't forgive them.
You gotta show your peeps some bunny moves.
Still disapprove.
Show them some ears that lie flat,
Tuck that tail down under your back,
When they are feelin' lovin'.
Still disapprove.
Tell them the carrot's icky,
Show them a bunny's picky.
Still disapprove.
Still disapprove.
And show all the world you're crabby.
Show them appeasement's shabby.
Still disapprove.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 12:30 PM

I'd say picture number one is more of a "Baroo?" than a disapprove. Number two is more disapproving.

Sigh. Not to be all nuffer, but after that NYT article, I have a hard time trusting Japanese cute. True, that did pertain mostly to dogs and the U.S. isn't so much better, really.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 12:40 PM

[that's Japanese for "cute"]

cutebabyfix.com - yay for rescuing bunnies! They are funny and smart. Tons of buns end up in shelters when they hit bunny-puberty which is just as much of a PITA as the human kind.

www.rabbit.org is the gold standard for info.

Before bun comes home, you'll want to bunnyproof any rooms you want to let bunny play in. This means covering all electrical cords (buns chew stuff) and blocking off any small hiding places. You'd be amazed at the places they can get into!

My bun is litter-trained and has free-run of my apartment. I have a cage (made from those wire-grid cubes) but except when maintenance needs to come in to work it's mostly a place to keep her litterbox and hay and where she likes to hang out.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 12:45 PM

But anyway, this bun is really cute.

My shelter got slammed with 13 rabbits in one day last week. Some moron put his unspayed female with another rabbit of undetermined sex. Duh. Nine babies later, he's thinking of getting her spayed. The other four came from another shelter.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 12:47 PM

Eh. Eh. I want to run my hand over the PLF. Eh.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 01:02 PM

bowing, respectfully. asses on platters indeeds.

 |  Apr 02, 2007 at 01:03 PM

The tatami mats in the background just make these even more perfect. Love the bunny! The PLF is too much ^_^
