Hazel-ra

It is a truth universally acknowledged,
that a person in possession of a pet
rabbit must do the hasenpfeffer joke.

Thanks, Suzy!

No wonder disapproval is so universal.

Renee said...

We took it a step further...we named our rabbit Hassenpfeffer because the dog tried to eat her. And our second rabbit we named Braunschweiger because he was almost ran over by the lawn mower.

Hass was VERY disapproving...I don't think she liked her name at all. But Brauny was very easy going.

Lalis said...

HAHAHA! I have to do this my bunnies... It'll be full on disapproval.

SixBunnies said...

Hoomins have, justifiably, died slow painful deaths for lesser transgressions ... be warned!

SixBunnies said...

This is an outrage! ... and one terrifically cute bunneh! Hazel-ra, you are so patient to accommodate your stoopid hoomin's poor sense of hoomor ... your hoomin better sleep with one eye open... a bun can always use her fluffy tummy to suffocate a stoopid hoomin ...

Fleetie said...

Sorry, WHO in possession of WHOM, again?

And anyway, it is "a truth universally acknowledged" that said hoomins are gonna be feasting from Hazel's can of whoop-a__ for the rest of their naturals!

(Yeah, I nicked part of the above from a recent comment on here, but it was good!)

Whenever my two masters get a little too demanding, I remind them they would fit perfectly in the crockpot. I usually get a double dose of thumping, bunny butt and serious ignoring...until I bring out the carrot greens.

Poor Suzie ....

Hazel no doubt seems calm because she is thinking hard about the possible existence of a very large cook pot.
Sauce for the goose...

Fleetie said...

...is sauce for the BUNNEH!!!

Poor Suzy, poor Suzy! Hoomins are obviously menaces with very disturbed senses of humour.

Tiberia said...

Have any of you noticed this phenom, or is it just me? People find out you have the great honor of living with rabbits, and their reaction is either 1)jokes about eating rabbits or 2)horror stories about how they used to have a rabbit but...*insert horrible ending for rabbit here* It's weird. I've never noticed this behavior concerning any other type of companion animals....just wondering!

bunny mummy said...

ahhhh yes and the equally universally known, "Waiter, there is a hare in my soup" (sigh)

@Tiberia I can attest that those comments are alive and most unwelcome in Canada....Toronto at least.

janet2buns said...

@Tiberia: Yes, sadly I have heard the same stories. When The Bunny Revolution comes, retribution will be swift and painful for those who have trespassed against Bunnyhood.

SixBunnies said...

@Tiberia: YES! EVERY SINGLE TIME!

Suzy said...

I tried to explain to her that it's the highest quality Le Creuset enamelled cast iron casserole pot, and that any bunny should feel honoured to be cooked in it, but all I got was the look.

She does fit well though.

Valerie said...

Tiberia and janet2buns, hear hear! And I have a feeling that Hazel-ra will be at the forefront of that bunny revolution :)

janet2buns said...

@Suzy: I hope you begged Hazel-ra's forgiveness for using the words "cooked" and "bunny" in the same sentence.
"I'll tip my hat to the new constitution,
Take a bow for the new Bunvolution,
Smile and grin at the change all around,
Pick up all the poops and spray,
Just like yesterday,
Then I'll get on my knees and pray
We don't get THUMPED AGAIN !!"

Furbeast said...

I appreciate the Jane Austen reference, but Hazel-ra looks like she has a lot of Sense and would like to thump hoomins into Insensibility.

Elena said...

@Tiberia, yes we get them too. My husband then makes a joke about eating the offender's children.

Camaleao said...

... as well as endure hasenpfeffer jokes in numbers so great that your eyes may eventually roll out of your head.

Paula said...

We concur:

Hossenfeffer: The Rise of Bunclad

Paula said...

I think you have to be logged onto Facebook to see it.

6Rabbits said...

@ Tiberia: YES! Never fails. Upon hearing I have rabbits, even my students have to tell me every sad rabbit story. Why doesn't anyone ever have HAPPY stories?
@ Elena: Thank your husband for the excellent response! I definetly don't hear that kind of "food" comment for any other pet--no matter how exotic.

janet2buns said...

We once had a tradesman give us a quote for home improvements. He also made suggestions on how to cook HRH Queen Phoebe and Prince Consort Drizzle. Without going into details as to what I suggested he do with his power tools, he lost the bid.

Fleetie said...

Janet: Quite right too.

I'd've wanted to kick his *** from then to the middle of next week, as well as refusing him the work.

How insensitive and insulting! What an idiot!
