My rage can't even take a break for Easter. Not even this most fortuitous Easter, the Sunday of which the mystical 20th day of the 4th month falls upon. This viral video rabbit looks like she's straight chilling jacuzzi-style, but could actually be in shock.It's kinda like how doctors tell you Q-tips are actually bad for your ears, and you really don't need any Summer's Eve--some things, like ears, vaginas, and certain pets, clean themselves. Rabbits are ... Read More

Really high caliber parody. Sample soundbyte: “Do you know what it is ... Read More
