Upside-down bunneh with pawpads

Tonight, the 300 will be dining peacefully on crunchy leaves

If you have a few shekels to spare, consider helping out the good people of Rabbit Rescue in Ontario, who suddenly have 300 bunnies rescued from a wretched fate. Unsurprisingly, this has put a huge strain on their resources. "Since March 12th, Rabbit Rescue has been working overtime struggling to save hundreds of rabbits that have been surrendered. We have been able to help save 150 so far, but our foster homes are bursting at the seams. We need more fosters, rabbit food and hay, litter, supplies, cages and most of all, money! Our medical costs are sky rocketing for all the spay, neuters and medical care required. If you can spare anything to help us give these rabbits the help they all desperately need, please contact us or donate now!" (Many, many thanks to momentrabbit)

Also via Daily Bunny, a twenty second clip quite easily justified: ear washing. Is cute.

Meanwhile, here's one bun not in need of any rescuing. ^_^ Even for Zen, this is an outstandingly adorable piece. (And it's even worksafe!)

And it's been confirmed: Doctor Who returns to the air on Saturday, April 5 2008. And here's the trailer (1m30, 720x400, 11.3MB) for season "four". (Quotation marks for the fact it's not really the fourth season of DW, but it's a convenient shorthand) As for Torchwood, I'm almost caught up - not helped by the fact there were two episodes this week. "From Out of the Rain" was a curious piece of work, I felt - some superbly atmospheric scenes, especially the opening of the circus, yet with so much left completely unexplained, such as the need for the "last breaths". I suppose much of that can be understood upon realising the writer was also the creator of Sapphire & Steel. (If you've not seen any of it, you might want to give it a try)

Reading through this commentary, I was positively tickled by the idea of having the Ying Tong Song played at a funeral. That's a pretty good way to be bidden farewell. ^_^ But then, the humor of the Goons appealed to me from early on, as one commenter illustrated:

Moriarty: Where's Eccles?
Seagoon: The gunpowder was a bit damp, so he's drying it out by the fire.
Uncle Thingy: That's the last thing he should do!
Bluebottle: It will be..
[sfx] *BOOM*

So, orona_red just had to note he'd never seen any Nibbler (Futurama) porn.. ^_^;

jirris_midvale happened upon this superb ad for milk, "One Gallon Axe", fairly clearly inspired by Spinal Tap. =:D
