Penny

"When my husband and I saw your post about the Great Firewall of China, we cracked up about Mao Tse-Bun disapproves of disapprovingrabbits.com--it was too good a play on words to pass up! So, I present to you Penny as Mao Tse-Bun. Strongly disapproving of her outfit and hat (she seemed genuinely intrigued by your site and the coffee mug, which she kept trying to stick her head in). Enjoy!"

-Courtney and Ben

... let's take it from the top:

(...)
The world is about to change its foundation
We are disapproving, let us be all
|: This is the final struggle
Let us group together, and tomorrow
Disapproving Rabbits
Will rule mankind :|

The Bun Revolution will begin at home. Offenses: dressing the sovereign rabbit in human-like clothing, limiting internet access, failure to keep the mug filled...and the list goes on. Transgressors will need to undergo a rigorous re-education program overseen by the Buns of 4.

Jan said...

"Buns of 4"? Great comment, FabFurs!

DB said...

is it possible we have stumbled onto a internal bun conflict, between chairman Pennys combunist dictatorship and Queen Cinnamons monarchy?

A disagreement about how best to control and disapprove of the stoopid hoomins perhaps?

The Bunns said...

Our bunns use every ploy known to man to control us. Hopefully they won't begin to wear uniforms like Penny is suggesting.

"Zhei ge 'hu min' dou tai ben le!" shuo Mao ZeBun !

"Tu zi dou bi 'hu min' cong min,, hao kan !"

@Fleetie: OK, what's the translation for us capitalists?

@IT the Nth: All buns know the Bunternationale as you have translated it. Us capitalist hoomins tremble in fear!

Fleetie said...

"These 'hoomins' are all too stoopid", says Mao ZeBun!

"Rabbits are all more intelligent, better-looking than 'hoomins'!"


Sorry, I forgot to switch on the Buniversal Translator.

janet2buns said...

Thanks, Fleetie! Since I am just a stoopid hoomin, my Bunny language skills are below par, as are all my other skills....sigh....

Fleetie said...

Janet: I used to be above beginner-level at Mandarin Chinese about 7 years ago. Could do simple conversation. I haven't practised it for years now, though.

But I don't think my BunChinese would be very good, for I too am a stoopid hoomin. :-(

Ijon Tichy the Nth said...

... bunneths for the longest time have owned us with their means of mean disapproval. I dread the moment when they'll rise up as one and disapprove away with hoomins.

But wait, there's more.

Looking at the pix I can't tell if it's a Le*novo laptop or not or what os it's running. If if Linux (themed as XP perhaps for better disguise), then the moment of truth might be much closer than suspected. I say let's run for the desert, we stand not a chance against the bunnies and penguins alliance!

Fleetie said...

I was wondering that, too. I'm looking at this on my laptop (== main PC too) running Ubuntu.

I wonder whether any techno-buns are working on a BunOS to install on their hoomins' computers!

Ijon Tichy the Nth said...

... hmmmmm, interesting. VERY interesting ....

Fleetie said...

OMG, and you know the really stoopid thing?

I just posted that I am running uBUNtu on my laptop, without even realising the significance of it!!! I only realised when I read my post back just now!

I AM A STOOPID HOOMIN AND THE BUNS HAVE ALREADY GOT ME TO INSTALL THEIR OS OF CHOICE WITHOUT MY EVEN REALISING IT!

I AM FINISHED!

I AM OWNED BY BUNS!

Jan said...

OK - you two have convinced me that all is lost - the bunocracy has begun. To be safe, I am turning off my computer forever. Goodbye. [Well, I am going to take a quick peek at the DR for today . . . then OFF!]

Jan said...

Too late! No DR pic yet today - the takeover has already begun!!

janet2buns said...

Poor, poor Fleetie appears to have finally been driven to distraction by our bunny overlords.

All is lost.

Sigh.

Fleetie said...

Lying in bed last night, something else occurred to me. As well as the "BUN" in "uBUNtu", there is ALSO the "TU" in "ubunTU".

"tu" is the mandarin Chinese word for rabbit as well! (Fourth tone, so descending pitch of the vowel "u".)

So there are two "bun"s in "Ubuntu"!

Jan said...

Fleetie, you are so smart! [Well, for a hoomin, that is] I had to google ubuntu - i'd never heard of it. I'm afraid @janet2buns is right - you have been driven to distraction by the buns. But it's sweet that you're thinking of them as you drift off to sleep . . .
