Poppins Marie


There are two ways of doing things.
The right way, and your way.



Thanks, Stephanie!

That's my girl. Always a grump.

Feels so 'wintery', very frosty disapproval.

J. said...

Just a spoonful of carrots helps the disapproval go down.

Rabbits' Guy said...

Ansel Adams would have loved Poppins Marie ....

Furbeast said...

Dutchies are always right. Or else.

speedyrabbit said...

Big Sigh my old dutch Thumper was like that,everything was on his terms...Poppins Marie she brings back some memories!

SixBunnies said...

Dutchies are like the sirens of Greek Mythology ... they are so beautiful and look like such good snugglers ... only to draw in the naive, helpless hoomin to certain death! Even with this knowledge... I would still risk it for a kiss on that little head!

LOVE LOVE LOVE

SixBunnies said...

Oh, Stephanie Smanto, I'm jealous you get to be a slave to this wonderful Dutchie, Poppins Marie! Love on her for me!

The "right" way is the rabbit way, of course. What a sweet name for bunny! And such a beautiful little bunny face, too.

"RRRRRRR-RUM PUNCH!" Literally...

Ms. Poppins Marie, I felt compelled to bring to your attention a certain aspect of English. YOUR can be plural. YOUR WAY could simply mean Stephanie Smanto's way, but It could also be plural. If one considers the possibility of this plural sense, one soon realizes that YOUR WAY could include Brandi B' way, Muneezz's way, 6B's way, speedyrabbit's way, Furbeast's way,
RG's (who it seems is not too sick to visit DR) way, J's way, IT the Nth's way, and Stephanie's way. That would make a total of at least nine ways already. I must say, I was not prepared to see this kind of mistake being made by a Dutchie. No need to thank me, I just wished to spare you further embarrassment.

Anonymous, when YOUR crack-n-wisery has been silenced by Ms. Pop-pop-Poppins, YOUR name will be stricken from DR, never to be mentioned again, nor shall we know the location of YOUR mortal remains.

And let YOUR tale of woe be a lesson to us all. Never correct a rabbit!!

YOU'RE on Ms. PM's LIST.

I really don't think that Poppins Marie cares about primitive "English"; I imagine she treats it with the contempt she knows it deserves.

Rabbits use a FAR more advanced language; they speak Rabbit. It has many subtle nuances that mere hoomins would never notice; a slight turn of one ear, a slight raising or lowering of the head, a brief and barely-perceptible tilt of the head to one side... These are but a few of many thousands of items of vocabulary in Rabbit.

Poppins Marie would not stoop to using clumsy hoomin languages - even if she had the vocal equipment to do so.

Now repeat after Poppins Marie:

THUMP
FOOTFLICK
BUNNYBUTT
EARSBACK
FROWN
DISAPPROVE

None of this BAM, BAS, BAT, BAMUS, BATIS, BANT for Poppins Marie! Or even LIE, LAY, LAY; LIED, LAID, LAY; LIED, LAID, LAIN.

She is a beautiful Dutchie girl!

But, Brandi B, you promised me Taps on your kazoo at my funeral! I don't mind being a cautionary tale, if you feel it serves a necessary and higher purpose, but I reeeealy wanted my kazoo salute. Dang!

Paula said...

Poppins Marie, you are a beautiful bunneh.

SixBunnies said...

I agree Paula, she's lovely!

brandi b said...

Ok, Anonymous, but if I play Taps, the Overlords will know it is in your honor and I will end up a cautionary tale.

How about Highway to Hell or perhaps something more peppy like Metallica's Sanitarium?

I must be overtly covert, covertly overt, you know, stay under the Bunny Radar whilst being in plain sight.

anonymous said...

Brandi B, I repeat,"Dang!". However, we don't want data overload. One cautionary tale is enough. Did I already say,"Dang?" And, by the way, Fleetie, you are probably right about all that Rabbit versus English stuff, but, for Heaven's sake, man, it is well known that you all over there can't even spell "tire," like for a car. Is it because of the subway? No wonder the bunns disapprove. That's probably where things first went wrong between us hoomins and a bunch of sweet bunns. You all had to dig under the ground because you couldn't even spell "tire."

"... the right way, and your way."

I hear this all the time, but usually from beings with smaller ears.

Fleetie said...

Anonymous : Regarding your diss of (true) English spelling :

You're cruisin' for some disapprovin' !

:-)

anonymous said...

Ouch! I suppose I am, Fleetie, but just remember, I will be cruising on TIRES, bicycle tires to be exact. And, I am not really MOCKING you. After all some of the world's fairly good literature was written by people who couldn't spell either. I mean it is clearly not an insurmountable barrier to a rich, full life. I mean the bunnies still disapprove of you don't they?
