Vinny

We did have your reservation, however
we decided to close the restaurant, instead.

Thanks, Amy!

Fine ... my two favorite animals rolled into one ... Otters and Bunnies ... an Otter Bunny ... why oh why must this be done to me...??? Vinny is the perfect name for a Bunny Bouncer!

Ears back ... you know how that goes ...

We understand completely. No problem here. We've heard of a nice little place across the galaxy. If you would just be so kind as to "push" us in the right direction, I'm sure we will be there in no time. Oh, you'd rather show us a "worm hole" instead. Well, gee, that would just be great.

I think the temperature all over the world just dropped about 50 degrees....

Vinny disapproved so hard that his ears disappeared in two tiny puffs of smoke and fur.

"Sorry, we maintain a strict dress code at this establishment. No one dressed as a hoomin allowed."

We schtinkee hoomins give off an unpleasant, inorganic funk. What rabbit can eat in a fine establishment with one of us sitting at the next table? Besides, our potty habbits and requirements are EWWWWWWWWW.

6B, recon this rabbit...for sNuggle purposes....

I bet that Vinnie doesn't say that to Everybody ... Maybe if I brought bags of treats? ....

Sorry this is off-topic to Vinny, Sharon & Bill, but an event of great import to each and every loyal and obedient subject of Queen Cinnamon and Young Prince Dougal will occur this very weekend:

Monty Python & The Holy Grail will play at the Lumiere Theatre (listing) in San Francisco on 1572 California Street (google map). (You can even ride a cable car up there. Be sure to get off one-quarter of the way to the stars.)

On Saturday and Sunday the showtimes are (1:40), 3:40, 5:55, 8:00 PM. The first showing is a matinee, although nowadays the discount given is hardly a bargain.

To the uninitiated, this classic film features one of the most disapproving of all rabbits, THE KILLER RABBIT!!!! (Although I normally object to any disturbance whatsoever during the movie, I plan to cheer and clap at the appearance of said bloodthursty lagomorph, and I encourage DR followers to join me at one of the matinees.)

Please contact KennFong1 on Facebook or Twitter or send an email to KennATKennFong.com (don't forget to use the actual "@" sign in the appropriate place, this being an anti-spam trick), so we can band together in solidarity.

There is a Whole Foods Market (it's B on the google map, with the purple pin being the theatre) just two blocks away where one could stop to procure contraband carrot juice, dried cranberries, corn nuts, and organic celery which a naughty person could smuggle into the theatre. (Of course, if anyone planned on smuggling in their own Disapproving Rabbit as well, I would most definitely share my dried cranberries with him or her. If given enough notice, I might even procure some unsalted raw almonds for such a properly adorable DR.)

And later we could certainly adjourn for snack or early nosh following the movie in one of the nearby places, or I could lead us all to my favorite Hunan spot (no tourists) in Chinatown, where I'm certain we could get some beautiful raw bok choy and bean sprouts for our companion DR.

Please join me in celebration on Saturday or Sunday. Contact me so we can arrange a proper reception committee for the Killer Rabbit.

Oh, my word! That would be so much fun! I would sit through the whole thing just to cheer for the rabbit! We BWB slaves should all bring our Big White Bunns to the show to cheer! Might be a little scary for a bunny, but it would be so much fun for us bunny lovers! I can't tell you how many non-bunny people have thought they were so cute by sending me a clip or a still shot of that rabbit ... about as many as have told me my rabbit would be good in a stew ... ugh! But I do love the BWB in the Python Show! Yeah BWBs!

SixBunnies said...

Will do bb! Locking on location ...

SixBunnies said...

All complaints of lost DR featured rabbits need to be addressed to SixBunnies and to brandi b ... do not contact your authorities ... we will ensure a fast and aggressive investigation into your missing bunns...

So this big black Winniebunngo RV pulls up in front of the Lumiere Theatre ........

anonymous said...

RG, legitimate concern. KF, I would still recommend big buckets of popcorn unless some of the bunnies promise to get the hoomins in. Sure they always say they will, but do they? I have friends whose favorite haunts no longer let them in. Vinny's new standard is catching on and no one wants to be the only restaurant left that allows humans. Remember, popcorn. Oh, maybe the people in the RV could take everyone through a drive in window kind of place?

Kenn Fong said...

@anon 1:15 I wouldn't feed Vinny or any other bunny some movie theatre popcorn because it's popped with coconut oil, which is loaded with LDL cholesterol. (All oils which are solid at room temp are.) I worked in a theater for many years and think all the free popcorn I consumed contributed to the four blocked arteries which precipitated my massive coronary and blown valve which necessitated a quad bypass and valve repair.

@6Bs - I'll be looking for some BWBs.

anonymous said...

KF, you are quite right. I'm very sorry to hear of how things had gotten to be, but here you are able to share the hard won knowledge, and that is a very good thing.

Kenn Fong said...

@Anon 3:15

My cardiologist told me not to guilt out about it because all four of my grandparents and both of my parents died of heart disease of one sort or another. My father actually had a transplant. Doc said I was lucky I was only 49 because I was better suited for it.

Didn't mean to drop a downer. But did wish to send out a warning about theater popcorn.

I'd much rather share some raw almonds and dried cranberries (or have the bun share some with me).

janet2buns said...

I think everyone in the theatre should shout out "LAGOMORPH!!" when Tim The Enchanter mistakenly calls the Killer Rabbit a rodent. That's just the sort of error bunnies have come to expect from stoopid hoomins.

Kenn Fong said...

@J2B,

If no one will join me, I'll just stay home and watch it on Netflix.

Maybe we can have a streaming party and all watch it together on Netflix.

Ken, just very glad you are here.
