Bun Mom On Campus

Ace Cuteologist Lisa M. writes us with a problem: "I have such a hard time studying at school because our campus is overrun with buns!" she tells us. "Seriously, I never get tired of seeing the buns, and I think my GPA has dropped a few points because of them, but it's worth it to see these guys every day!"  We should all have such problems.

Keeping watch in case Wallace and Gromit show up with their Bun-Vac thingy.

Eventually, they ooze together into one big bunny.

Nice buns!

Safety Tip: Always lock your bun!

In this picture, there are 47 people. None of them can be seen...

Ease up on the mascara there, Tammy Faye.

I want to go to this wonderful mythical college!!

I want to go there, we just have mutant squirrels here in DC. Cute but HUGE squirrels.
Loving the guyliner on the last one.

There are no buns on my campus! I want my money back! OK, actually I get paid to work there, so I'll have to lodge a complaint with the management.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:30 AM

What college does she go to? 'Cause I really want to apply, just for the bunnies.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:32 AM

WHAT?! Where is this magical school!? I must get a graduate degree from there immediately.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:32 AM

Try making a mental mashup of the hovertexts & Python references. It's like a verbal Rorschach test. I ended up with something like "Miz Nice Buns, Will You Stand Up, Please?"

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:34 AM

(which really doesn't say anything about me that I didn't already know)

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:35 AM

University of Victoria? If so, then those pics must be from another season, not now.

If your campus is going to be over-run with an animal, then it might as well be a rabbit.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:36 AM

Must.. Go there .. NOW!!!!!!

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:38 AM

i want to go to there...

Johns Hopkins Buniversity?

Why does that Star Trek episode with the Tribbles come to mind?

Bet they have a fabulous bun to student ratio.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:41 AM

Yep, it's the University of Victoria in British Columbia:


 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:42 AM

Disapproval University, where you can earn a Ph.[capital!]D to learn the art of censuring with the ultimate smugness and grumpiness possible.

Now excuse me while I crawl into the burrow with the fuzzy pile.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:45 AM

Better than those poisoned elbows critters.

My campus didn't have buns-and I feel cheated.

Honestly this could be a problem, what are they going to do- spay the bunlets? I think I would. Or, give them away as graduation gifts or- to parents who are lonely for their freshmen students-that's it a brilliant plan!

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:46 AM

Tufts Univeristy?

DePaw University?

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:46 AM

Obviously wayyyy too many tame rabbits were let loose on this campus! What is wrong with this picture? I found my bunny on my college campus but geez. She was scared and alone!

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:48 AM

Thing is...those aren't wild rabbits, they're domestic varieties. Looks like someone got some bunnies for Easter and ditched them when they got big (and pregnant.)

I'm glad they appear to be thriving in this environment, but it's puzzling...cute as all get out, but puzzling.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:48 AM

i do not have buns outside my window at work.
i dont even have a window.
i want to see bunnies.
she is one lucky lady.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 06:59 AM

I want to go to that college! I would really love to have a baby bun in my lap while I study calculus. Would make studying that subject a wee bit more tolerable. Just a wee bit. Could I take the baby bun to class with me? Maybe sneak him in a coffee cup?

I wonder if there's a bunch of cats at Purdue...

Do you ever do Kids In the Hall references. Cuz you should.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:02 AM

Awesome! Do you ever do Kids In the Hall references? Cuz you should.

I toured the campus with my college-bound daughter some years ago -- buns were everywhere. It was buntastic.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:06 AM

that's the university of victoria. i went there too. there's way more bunnies then that, the pictures do not do it justice. there's also wild cats that eat the rabbits. and a huge fountain that attracts hundreds of ducks in the spring/summer.

it's a tradition to capture baby buns and keep them as pets in your rez room..... bunnies are litter box trainable.

one time i was driving on ring road (the road that goes around the campus) and a baby bun the size of my fist ran under my car. i had to slam on my breaks. the bun was in the MIDDLE of my car. so here i was on my hands and knees trying to get the bun out. traffic behind me was backing up and people were getting out of their cars to help. we eventually got the bun out to safety.
it's just a fact of life, no one was pissed off (even the bus driver helped) that a little bun was holding up traffic.

They help with your math homework because they multiply like, well . . . you know.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:08 AM

those definitely did not use to be wild rabbits! they are super cute. Should people really be holding the babies? isn't that bad if they're wild?

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:09 AM

Hey, that's my old school! Many of the buns there are so used to people that they are no longer as timid as they should be. One tried to eat my sister's shoe.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:12 AM

Oooh, DKN, ..goooold! Nice!

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:15 AM

True, baby buns at UVic don't come in the winter...but Victoria, BC, does actually look a lot like this even now. Although when we had some snow last month I did see a white bunny nibbling on a snowball! (ahn...)

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:17 AM

How amazing! I concur, we should all have such problems!!!! <3

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:17 AM

Dugg for Monty Python reference... wait... what site is this again?

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:19 AM

30 Helen's agree that you should do more KITH references here.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:20 AM

"sorry...we're not actually fluffy bunnies. we're just a couple college students."

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:22 AM

These Buns are sent to test your cute quotient.

That last guy is tewtally the "big bun on campus"!

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:28 AM


 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:28 AM

as someone involved with rabbits in the shelter sytems i hope there are programs in place to rehome or at least Trap/Spay/Neuter.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:29 AM

We've got cottontails and jackrabbits running around the college campuses around here (West Texas-MC, UTPB, TTU). Of course, there not as tame though. One guy told me he saw the jackrabbits chasing a stray dog once. Boy, I would have loved a pic of that.

Although the U.Vic rabbits are descended from domestic breeds, they're a feral colony now. Back in the 80's some students let their pet rabbits go at the end of a semester, and they bred with the wild rabbits and pretty much took over. There's now a semi-feral population of thousands on the campus. They aren't fixed - the local predators are counted on to keep the population under control.

I doooo want to go to this college.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:34 AM

Ahh, the UVic buns! The university is over-run with them! I loved them when I went to school there. For some reason it's considered a "problem"... but the only ones who seem to have a real problem are the disapproving buns!!

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:40 AM

s/b CUTE OR SAD? yes, i would be charmed to see these guys at my school everyday - she even gets to snuggle them! BUT, feral bunnies don't usually live so long and they multiply out of control...

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:41 AM

UC San Diego is a bunopolis as well.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:42 AM

That's my old university! I went there from 1996-2001. Those pictures don't show the rabbit population properly, there are soooo many more bunnies everywhere. It was one of my favorite things about the campus. There are a lot of rumours about how they got there, including my favorite which says that they were ex-lab rabbits that were liberated by the campus PETA group in the late 80's. That one is totally NOT true, but it's an entertaining story! Sort of like the movie Project X.

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:43 AM

Hold on guys. They are really cute, but this is a serious problem. Domestic rabbits that start thriving and breeding in the wild like this pose a serious ecological problem. This is why you should always take your buns to a rabbit rescue if you don't want them anymore... otherwise people have to start killing rabbits that look like this T_T

Wow, I'd love to see this place in person! Must be such a treat to see all those buns running around! So cute!

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:43 AM

oh my god! Its like going to school in Teletubby Land!

 |  Jan 29, 2009 at 07:44 AM

We don't have rabbits at the University of Melbourne, but we do have heaps of native possums like these guys http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Brushtail_possum.jpg and quite a few kitties have made the campus home.

We also have HEAPS of these guys, which is cool / scary when you're on campus at night:
