Popcorn or Binkeh?

Has Doog just been told off? Or can popcorns also not be "flippin' the bird", but true expressions of happinhess, like binkies?

I need this stuff explained to me!

Anyway I thought "DOOG-BINKEH !!!" when I saw it!

Doog, you're a star bunny! I love seeing you binky!

And I love the oh-so-serious black-and-white BunPortrait of Dougal, too!

It's very arty. I can imagine Bun-art-critics sounding like Brian Sewell holding forth at great length about the subtle nuances and features and hidden meanings in this portrait.

You rule, Doog!

Oh to have a bunny that could be trusted around cds, books, wood furniture.....etc....etc

I love the B&W snap. Dougal would make a wonderful Film Noir matinee idol.

Yeeeehawww, Dougal! He's a rodeo rabbit.

The black and white photo is super! B&W adds such a cool dimension.

Champis sends greetings to DR from GĂ„rdsbacken, as do Paula and Danne, who are in the process of introducing Champis's beautiful white-with-gray-ears girlfriend to all creatures great and small on the farm.

Dougal gets a 10 from the judges for *sticking* that landing!

Takes some muscle to get all THAT rabbit into the air like that! Hate to be on the receiving end of a THUMP...

So tell us--what led to this moment?

Oh yes Fleetie, popcorns and binkies can both be flipping the bird OR expressions of happiness, depending on the context. They can mean "Yippee!" or "I don't give a rat's ass that you are mad at me. Actually, I rejoice in your frustration! HA HA HA!" Bunnehs are complicated creatures indeed! And as I have said before, ears speak volumes.

Fleetie said...

Thank-you, Janet.

And is "popcorn" just another word for "binky", or are they qualitatively different somehow that my stoopid hoomin eyes cannot, so far, see?

BTW, I turned on the sound, and Doog sure does come down with a THUMP!

Binkies can take many wild and expressive forms. If observed over a period of time, binkies can be loosely put into categories. I think popcorning is a specific type of binky, in which the bunny hops straight up into the air and lands in the same spot, shocking and amazing the stoopid hoomin who witnesses it. I would call the one Dougal does in this clip a "spin-a-rama" binky. The front of the body doesn't move much, but the hind end swings around. In a binky episode, many different types of binkies can be combined into quite an impressive run, much the same as a hoomin gymnast performs in a floor routine. Of course, the bunny is better as he can perform at any time, whereas the stoopid hoomin must be trained. Who wants to look at a great lumbering hoomin anyway when there are graceful and furry bunnies around, anyway???

Yay this is a great weekend indeed,Dougal doing binky's and Popcorning And Speedy having a birthday!xx Rachel

Sometimes when I see binkies, it seems to me that they may be entirely involuntary, kinda like spasms or something, outside the bunny's control. They can certainly be super-cute, but could it be that sometimes, when a bunny is so super-happy or having just SO much fun, that it all gets a bit much, and they find themselves up in the air without even knowing why? 'Could the bunny be as surprised as we are?', I sometimes wonder.

Fleetie said...

Happy Birthday, Speedy!

I hope your hoomin mommy brought you lots of extra special treats and gave you extra attention, pats and snorgles!

SixBunnies said...

WHOA! For a big guy, he got some major air! Yay for Doogs!

I always think of popcorn when looking at a group of baby bunnies. They seem to be like popcorn just popping up ... there is always at least one who is annoying the heck out of the rest who want to sleep!

Renee Nefe said...

We're bunsitting this week. And this bun has been enjoying her free time and seems to want to binky, but isn't catching the air like Doog here. Perhaps I should show her the video so she can see how it's done.

SixBunnies said...

It looks like that first "pop" took Doog as much by surprise as it did us! LOL
