Big Red Hummer Bunny
Wild N Wacky Weekends
Free Easter Bunnies
Have any of you ever bought your little one a bunny for Easter? Well, if you plan to this year, it is suggested that you go to Long Beach City College in California. Seems they are overrun by abandoned Easter bunnies. How many colleges do you know of that has a "Rabbit Population Management Task Force"? Actually it has become quite a serious problem. They are domesticated, and don't know how to fend for themselves. Besides hurting each other in territorial battles, many are suffering from syphilis. The students at the college have to watch their step, as they are constantly tripping over them. In order to help control the problem, last week they spayed or neutered about 80 of them. I think that people just need to stick to chocolate Easter bunnies.
Given the choice, would you prefer to own a Hummer or a fancy horse Carriage? I guess artist Jeremy Dean couldn't decide either. So, he just bought a used Hummer H2, cut it in half, modified it, added some horses, and now enjoys his Sunday drives around Central Park. (I wish I could post a pic, but I couldn't find one in Public domain.) So, tell me, would you want one?
When you were a kid, did you used to make paper chains out of gum wrappers? Kids nowadays just don't even know what gum chewin is all about. You had to buy the right shape...you know...Juicy Fruit, Big Red, etc. Well, Gary Duschl has been making a continuous paper chain from his gum wrappers since 1965! His paper chain is now 12 miles long. Every night his sets in the den and works on his chain while watching sports. Of course, the den must be devoted pretty much to the chain..as they can't move it much. Currently it weighs 900 pounds. A marathon is 26.2 miles...which is how long Duschl wants his chain to be. He thinks it will take him until he's 70 years old. And no, he doesn't eat chew all that gum. In fact if you could just CLICK HERE, then you can help him out. No, he won't accept chains. He wants his marathon to be a one man show. But, he could sure use an empty wrapper or two...or a thousand or two!
Well, that's your weird and wacky weekend news. You just never know what you're gonna read when you read a Hillbilly Housewife blog!
