... well, no great surprise there,

Gum Gum: Hoomin, that transmission... Mother's deciphered part of it. It doesn't look like an S.O.S.
Hoomin: What is it, then?
Gum Gum: Well, I... it looks like a warning. I'm gonna go out after them.

Pretty much puts in a nutshell what I've long suspected of our bunns' view of us. They must live in endless frustration at our ineptness. Can there be ANYTHING that they may see as some shred of intelligence?

The Fab Furs said...

So serving as a bunslave just demonstrates an instinct for survival, and not any sort of intelligence?

Furbeast said...

"Calling base headquarters, please recheck systems in case of malfunction. Sniffer on full activation? Check. Whiskers set at maximum function? Check. Ear scan open to receive all data? Check. Mouth on highest disapproval level? Check.

"Lt. Gum Gum here with final report to base; following recheck there are still no signs of intelligence in hoomins. I repeat, all signals negative. Confirm? Over."

Furbeast has said more or less what I was going to say, only better. So I don't have much to add.

Except that as a hoomin, I'm not lifting Gum Gum's Intellligometer off its zero-peg. Oh well. Guess those years at uni were a waste of time, then.

Love the Disapproving Rabbits. They make my day and make me smile. I have a turtle and he blogs about his lavish life, and he links to his friends, the Disapproving Rabbits! Check him out at the Lavish Life of Henry and maybe you can link back!

"All your hoomins are belong to us. You have no chance to survive make your time."

@RG: I don't think, or at least I hope, they don't live in endless frustration. They do (clearly) take note, but then they move on to something, well to something a little more worthwhile.

I am sorry we wasted your scanning time, Gum Gum ... We are getting pretty good at following orders, though ...
