Here comes Peter Cottentail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail

Alas, 34 year-old William Falklingham may have hoped to emulate Mr. Cottontail but unfortunately he scared the bejesus out of little kids in his hometown of Salmon, Idaho. Salmon, Idaho? Is there something fishy going on here?

After several complaints from the public, police were hot on his tail (pun intended). Remember the movie Harvey with Jimmy Stewart? Stewart played a character who was the only person who could see his friend, Harvey, a giant rabbit. Unfortunately, for Mr. Falklingham, everyone could see him in his rabbit costume and occasionally a tutu, peeking at little kids from behind a tree.

Police say local residents were "greatly disturbed" by the man's activities. Although you might be correct in wondering just who is greatly disturbed.

Wow he really is disturbing. So's that thing on the right!

But a neighbour stuck up for the guy saying "He's got the bunny outfit, a cowboy suit and a ballerina dress but you don't see him except where he's tripping through his back yard."

I think "tripping" may be the operative word there. Perhaps Mr. Falklingham was "hopped up" on an illegal substance. Regardless, police have now put an end to the guy's hippity hopping. I guess you could say hare today gone tomorrow.

Too bad he doesn't live here where I do. Nobody would mind, complain, or even look at him funny!

I'm sure you've seen much worse, seeing how you live in California and all.

Worse? This wouldn't even be considered mildly eccentric where I live.

Seem some pretty hare-raising outfits, have you? Some that make you paws and look twice?

I have seen a fat young man in a playboy bunny outfit, complete with the fishnets and high heels. He had a beard too surprisingly. And this was not a costume. He was just going to the corner market.

Linda sometimes your comments evaporate. I have your latest one in my e-mail, but it never made it here. There's something freaky going on. Don't say I didn't "warren" you.

This was Linda's comment that somehow disappeared: "I have seen a fat young man in a playboy bunny outfit, complete with the fishnets and high heels. He had a beard too surprisingly. And this was not a costume. He was just going to the corner market."

Heh heh.

So that's the inspiration for the new FX series Wilfred.

It's dirty.

But it doesn't stop me from watching it. heh heh

And I say it should be mandatory for everybody to don a bunny costume and tu tu around the yard once in awhile.

But that's just ME.

Wilfred? Guess I was dating myself with Harvey.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)

Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...

I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
