A few weeks ago, an innocent young book pusher asked if anyone wanted to write a blog post for July. I told her I would, but only if she’d let me write about the bunny invasion. Foolishly, she agreed.
So today I’m here to warn you about a terrible threat creeping across our great nation…
Yes, you read that correctly. Hell. Bunnies. This isn’t a joke, people. It’s a serious problem facing tens of people across the world, which is why I’m here to sound the alarm, and officially put out my call for the counter-rebellion.
You might think bunnies are cute, unless you watch Monty Python, in which case you are way ahead of me. The vicious danger of bunnies is well documented. A few years ago, I had my first brush with this phenomenon when I won a twitter contest held by @thinkgeek and got a box of prizes that included these terrifying little bunnies:
(Moms? Really, Think Geek? Is this so they can scare their kids?)
You’d think I would have accepted the warning. I’m not sure what the warning was, but it had big pointy teeth and an evil sort of glint in its eyes, so I can’t say it wasn’t clear. But I didn’t, because I was careless.
Then, a few weeks ago, after a lovely dinner, my co-writer’s husband opened my front door and caught the second stage of the bunny invasion.
THE BUNNIES HAD SURROUNDED OUR HOUSE!
Look at them! That is clearly a perimeter, and they are waiting for the signal to strike. Or something. I wasn’t even sure what until I rushed to my computer and used CSI’s patented zoom/enhance/crime-detect software to uncover the truth.
(KM? KM? It is clear to me that Keith Melton has sent bunny commandos to my house.)
So, we must be vigilant! The bunnies could strike at any time. They have allies everywhere. They fool us with their big eyes and their cute floppy ears, but when you turn your back, they’re always there, gathering…
Do you really want to be the next victim of the Hell Bunny Apocalypse?
Only you can stop the bunnies.
To get more updates on the Hell Bunnies, make sure you come join the insanity on Twitter! Thanks Bree for the Public Service Announcement!!
