The cartoon is spot-on but the labels are what did me in!

Happy Spring! Happy Easter!

Hockey Mom said...

Lawd, how I needed that today.

Great! Now I have to find the screen cleaner to get iced tea off my screen. Warn me in the title line when the content is going to be so darned funny!!
and canknitian is right the labels are just a hilarious!

Thank you! Work has been full of cranky and crabby today so this was a huge mood lifter. Although, with real bunnies it would read "done in 40 seconds and with one eye on the carrot". ;)

LaurieM said...

Like the labels... especially the "men's issues" one.

Alena said...

The comments are practically better than the cartoon! But as I had to make a bunny cake for my honey bunny the cartoon is priceless. Thanks for the laughs!!

Priceless

MJ said...

OMG - the labels are as gut-bustingly funny as the cartoon! Fantastic, as usual...Happy Spring to You!!

Dearest Franklin, as a rabbit breeder I can assure you that TRULY like rabbits ALWAYS means forty seconds flat but it ends with a very un-"manly" squeal. In this case I suppose life imitates art which imitates life. LOLOL WAY too funny 'toon. And before anyone says it, I don't personally...I only oversee the process. ;)

hoppy spring!

although you wouldn't know it around philly - cold, rainy, cloudy, windy, YUCK!

an aside - does it REALLY take that long? 20 seconds is more like it!

You're a bit of a James Thurber disciple, aren't you?

Kristen said...

Snort! The past couple of days have been miserable around here--thanks for the laugh. You're the best!

Cackled so hard my cats freaked out.

Now you -know- there are going to be some very disappointed googlers out there who find those labels and have NO idea what they have to do with a knitting blog. Thanks for the good laugh!

I just had to de-lurk to say that I'm snortgiggling wildly over here. Thanks!

Roxie said...

Yep, the lables made me laugh out loud.

If this is any indication of what's to come in your book, sign me up! Thanks for the sniggle on this maddeningly snowy day!

Maybe they could just have cookies and watch Lawrence Welk.

::snerflesnork:: Ok, that was an extremely unladylike noise I just made, rather loudly. Fantastic! God, I can hardly wait for your book... ;) (Y'know, those CPaAGgers just might be affecting you with the tags. Just a bit. Happy cake!)

Happy vernal equinox to you, too, Franklin!

The labels, the labels.

You are a bad man.

Happy Easter from Sue in EC - the one spinning on the Little Gem

Lyda said...

Bwahahahahahahaha! You made me laugh loud and long, and the cat is now worried about my sanity (again). Happy spring!

Singing along with The Magnetic Fields' song "Let's Pretend We're Bunny Rabbits" from _69 Love Songs_:

"Let's pretend we're bunny rabbits
Let's do it all day long
Let abbots, Babbitts and Cabots
say Mother Nature's wrong
and when we've had a coupla beers
we'll put on bunny suits
I long to nibble your ears
and do as bunnies do."

I always imagine you as having Stephin Merritt's voice, Franklin.

It's funny 'cause it's true.

Franklin, that's just the BEST!
