Suicide Bunny Notice

I like wild bunnies. I really do. But today I’m SLIGHTLY annoyed. This little guy ate our arbor vitae all winter. He also gnawed and girdled the hedge which I’m philosophical about, okay? But today, I’ve no use for him because he is more clever than I. (or is that me? Jeremy? Marsena?) He systematically waits until moments before the crocus (crockeye?) open (How does he KNOW?) and then nibbles them to stubs. We’re spreading this. And may his little paws burn all the way to heaven or at least to the next yard.

It is "I," the "am" being implied. Well-done, good and faithful grammarian.

Whatcha wanna bet he's a Mexican bunny and loves the stuff...

A few years ago a friend of mine (who is actually the director of the local botanical gardens) said to mix the cayenne in with the birdseed. The squirrels hate the stuff and the birds can't taste it...
Famous last words. The squirrels LOVED it and kept eating. They are either Mexican or Indian. Must be. How else can you explain it?

J, but I ain't, that's why I have you, isn't it?
domandkat, I know, I know. You're probably right. He's certainly NOT Norwegian.
