Guinness Melville

Wednesday, you are my enemy.
Only one of us shall survive.

Thanks, Mitzi!

6 day week here we come.

Kinda channeling Cinnamon I think ...

Marisa said...

That brow looks awfully FURrowed... ;)

Guinness Melville is a fine, distinguished, but very unimpressed rabbit!

He is clearly a rabbit of good breeding. An Aristobun; bunistocracy.

And for what it's worth, I'm not keen on Wednesdays either. Especially this one, so I agree completely with our [ermine/bunmine]-clad superior.

And yes, I also thought of dear Queen Cinnamon when I saw Guinness Melville's photo!

3 checks are better said...

OMG! That is how I feel about wednesday as well!!!!! and Dodger too.

I have a nasty feeling that Wednesday will loose... which is sad, because it's my favorite day of the week.

Priscilla said...

I don't know Fleetie, Guinness looks like a bit of a brawler to me (note scars on forehead and banged up nose). Which is not to say, of course, that he is not a very handsome bunny. No doubt that Wednesdays do not stand a chance...

I always thought Tuesdays were lucky. Then about forty years ago I was talking to a young man who made a good (though personal) case for Wednesdays. I think his bunnehness G.M. is going to win this for me, and I am so gratified. Yeah, G.M. is going to put the woe back in Woden.

While Queen Cinnamon is so very often in my thoughts, Guinness Melville brought to mind Watership Down and the heroic leaders in that story. He looks like he's been in charge of many soldiers in his time.

I'm glad I'm not Wednesday!

Guiness is so over the whole Gregorian calendar thing that hoomins have used wasting everybuns time for the past 400 years. Let the Age of Melvillian timekeeping begin!

SixBunnies said...

Is Guinness Melville's slave out there? Will you give us some info on this extremely handsome bun? How did he get his battle wounds?

Kat said...

It looks like some stoopid hoomin forgot GM's carrot greens this week.

@Furbeast and 6B: Yes the only logical conclusion is that sometime in the first decade B.G.M., some miserable bean dropped the ball when it came to treats.

Guinness's slave here. I am sad to report that this submission is in memoriam. Guinness passed recently and the next day I discovered this wonderful website. I think Cinnamon was definitely a distant cousin :)

I rescued Guinness from a backyard breeding situation where he shared a small enclosure with several buns and chickens. Yes, chickens. The impressive scars were already present when I met this tough guy, though the mouth wound was fresh. Guinness was a modest fellow and never disclosed the details of the undoubtedly numerous savage beatdowns he delivered before moving to Chez Melville.

Breed: standard Rex
Partners in crime: Stanley and Delphine
Favorite healthy snack: mimosa branches
Vice: would crawl over his own mother for raisins

RIP Guinness - I like to think you are in the great lagomorph beyond leading underground seminars in badassery.

Without a doubt it is so! RIP or RIBadassery, Guinness. Nigel, thanks for giving bunns a good home. Did Guinness really let you call yourself "the hooligin?" He must have really liked you.

Fleetie said...

I am very sorry to hear that Guinness is no longer with us.

I am even more upset, though, that he was neglected and abused by his previous owners who left him with chickens, to fend for himself. How can people treat gorgeous bunnies like this?! :'-(

Rest in peace, Guinness. You were a hero of a rabbit in the face of cruel, unfair, and horrible adversity.

And thank-you to Nigel for rescuing Guinness.

janet2buns said...

What Fleetie said. Fleetie is so eloquent, there is little I can add.

Sadly, it is common in the bunworld for neglected and abused rabbits to acquire scars like Guinness's. I feared as much when I saw his picture. Kudos to you Nigel, for providing Guinness with a safe haven.

Oh my! Sorry Wednesday :o(

Fleetie said...

Dear Guinness:


But I could have told you, Guinness:
This world was never meant for one as beautiful as you.


(See "Vincent" by Don MacLean for full lyrics.)

Heartbreaking, what those other nasty "people" did to you, Guinness, you brave little guy. :'-(

SixBunnies said...

I am hoping that possibly, Queen Cinnamon and Guinness Melville might have found each other on the other side. I am going to be horribly sad if I miss a royal wedding!!! I wish somehow they could send us pictures from the other side ...

nigelthehooligan said...

Mercy! I should have had a box of tissues handy before reading your kind condolences. All I can say is, people who give their hearts to these special creatures, or rather allow their hearts to be stolen - are clearly superior in wit, camaraderie, and empathy.

Now if you'll excuse me, I think I've got something in my eye...
