Oh no, the dreaded bunny but of disapproval! We're doomed.

Oh my, is that a tombstone Abbey is on? A fatal disapproval? Wow thats severe!

Here lies One Stoopid Hoomin'
who failed to bring treats in a timely manner.

Any questions?

"And the bunny, never blinking, still is sitting, still is sitting
On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;
And her eyes have all the seeming of a demon's that is dreaming,
And the lamp-light o'er her streaming throws her shadow on the floor;
And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor
Shall be lifted - nevermore!"

- The lesser known poem "The Bunny" by Edgar Allan Doe

@j2b Thank you for rescuing Doe"s "The Bunny" from undeserved obscurity.

It is a little known fact that Edgar Allan Doe suffered from leporiphobia. This fact colours the manner in which we read and understand Doe's works. "The Tell-Tail Heart" and "The Bit and the Pendulum" bear witness to this phobia.

@J2B - thanks for besting any comment i could come up with - wonderful! I was just thinking how much I hate being given the "business end" of the bun... i know it means I've really blown it bigtime!

Hoomins deserve The Bunny Butt. Nothing new there, then.

But Abbey is a very fine, distinguished-looking rabbit! No wonder we're getting disapproved of in the presence of such finery.

@bunny mummy: posterior dewlap! that's what it's called! thank you! Winston of Houseful of Rabbits has a posterior dewlap and it looks like he has judge's robes on. I love those! I just never had a good way to describe them. POSTERIOR DEWLAP ... add that to the dictionary!
