Yes, very cute. However, I would never be able to wear black again.

It would be sad if, underneath all the fur, the bunnies were really macho. Like, they dream of leather and knife fights.

Good goddess, it looks like a Mogwai. Better not feed it after midnight.

Shouldn't that be considered abuse? I mean they can't even see. That's just ... wrong :P Funny looking, but the animals have to be miserable.

While I have similar concerns, I have read they are fluffed up a lot before shows, so perhaps they are less incapacitated than they appear.

That said, I wouldn't feel right about doing that to an animal myself, as hilarious as they are.

Wow. Amazing what a little selective breeding and a slightly demented sense of aesthetics can do...

Demented? These are brilliant. As long as someone else does the grooming.

Angora

(Link)
A. This is where Angora comes from, like Angora sweaters..
B. They grow wild like this, but shed profusely so they don't reach this amount of wool.
3. They are plucked at this point and start to grow another coat which takes about 8 weeks.

I used to raise these; had over 40 of em at one point...

40!!!! I would be scared to step into a room with a floor covered with these furry things, lest they nibble to down to a bleeding stump with thier I'm sure gnashing munching teeth.

altenate dialog on fuzzy things.

ya know my cat used to cough these things up...

Actually if I had one and a cat at the same time, I think that much fur would act as a kevlar jacket to make it cat proof or choke it on the amount of fur.

As amuzing as they are I'd be afraid to have any lest I get it confused with my couch pillows.

I really hope that they don't develop oozing orifices (diahrea, colds). That fur could get NASSSTTYY.

With those ears, does he get decent reception?
