I just realized this morning that it was April Fool’s Day, and I was thinkin’ I should write some sort of post like, fooling people. Maybe I could pretend I was going to quit blogging. But I’m half afraid peeps would be like WOOOOT and then I’d be going, oh crap, just kiddin’? 🙂 Awk-ward.
On Twindaddy’s blog today, he’s talking about pranksters and how one moron decided it’d be a cool idea to chase people with chainsaws! Now, see, there’s really no reason to make anything up when this kind of idiotic crap happens in real life all the time! I mean, chainsaws – talk about FUNNY!
But it gets better. I thought I had found the weirdo goldmine in TLC, but clearly I should pay more attention to network TV, most specifically Dr. Phil. Alert reader Carrie Rubin told me in the comments section yesterday that Dr. Phil had a lady on there that breastfed a bunny. No, for reals! Also a guy who pretended to be a dog. But the bunny feeding thing was my favorite. I mean, wtf, who does this?
Anyway, this was totally perfect for my post – it has something that sounds like a joke plus a bunny, so I’m getting April Fools and Easter in at the same time. Speaking of Easter, I wonder if any of the Christians were afraid the Jesus thing was an April Fool’s joke and that’s why they didn’t believe the women at first when they said Jesus had totally risen from the grave and stuff. Everyone knows the Virgin Mary was a total kidder, always prankin’ on the disciples.
But back to Bunny Boobs, as I have decided to call this lady. The lady treats the bunny like a baby, even though she has actual children, who think she’s insane. Because she is. At least the bunnies are happy – maybe. I dunno, I’d figure most bunnies would prefer to be left alone in their hutches to chew hay and make cocoa puffs. But that’s just me.
The show asks “Adorable, or just plain creepy?” Creepy. I’m gonna go with creepy, Phil. Though not quite as creepy as you are, because you’ve got her on the show to begin with, dude. Why not leave her to TLC? If they haven’t covered her already. Anyhoo, she has 10 rabbits, some are potty trained, others she diapers . . . and er, um, she owns a ballet studio and is trying to train the bunnies to dance. Of course. She also reads them bedtime stories and sings to them. Okay. They have beds, clothes, and she pushes them in a triplet stroller. Sure, why not?
Oh, and did I mention – she breastfeeds them. Or attempts to, even though she has no milk since her kid – her human kid – is 19 years old. But she did say the bunny . . . OMG . . . latched on. I’m just, wow, that’s something. At the beginning of the show, Phil warns people not to judge – right before he starts judging and sporting looks of horror. Granted, I’m not sure who wouldn’t be horrified at this, but still – shame, Dr. Phil. I think this is what they call “jumping the shark”. At one point I was afraid my blog had done this, as evidenced by this illustration.
If you don’t understand the shark reference, here you go. Anyway, after watching Phil scrape the barrel here, I feel much, much better. Thank you for this April Fool’s gift, sir! I might even get a rabbit.
No, wait. No I won’t.
Have you ever pulled an April Fool’s Day prank? Did it involve a chainsaw? Let me know in the comments below. Also, I’m still looking for new reality show ideas, so if you have one of those, leave that too.
