FTFA: It was not immediately clear what happened to the rabbit and its human savior, who declined to be interviewed by KABC but was praised as a hero online.

It was delicious.

Season the rabbit with salt and pepper and place in a non-corrosive dish. Mince the garlic and mix with the lemon juice, half the rosemary leaves and half a cup of the olive oil. Pour onto the rabbit, turn in the marinade, cover and refrigerate overnight, turning occasionally.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place the rabbit in a roasting pan and pour on the marinade. Cover the rabbit with a piece of foil. Place the potatoes around the rabbit and sprinkle with salt, pepper and remaining rosemary leaves.

Add the remaining oil and toss the potatoes so that they are coated and won't stick to the bottom of the roasting pan. Roast for 20 minutes then remove the foil from the rabbit. Roast for another 10 to 25 minutes, or until tender and lightly browned.

ProTip
If the rabbit appears to dry out during cooking, add a little water or dry white wine.

This is what I was expecting, as opposed to an actual bunny.  Apparently I've been reading Fark for too long.

Holy shiat no kidding. The damn thing is trying to run and the dumb human maniac flailing his arms is freaking it out. Yeah, it would have run into the street and possibly run over, but that beats running into the fire from the crazy human and certainly dying in it

it looked like a very young rabbit.  if it were older it would've chosen the fire or the road.

Well none of that happened but don't let that stop the "what if" speculative outrage.

Can that bunny suck your **** for a thousand dollars?
 
2017-12-07 01:50:25 PM  
Please won't somebody think of the Wabbits?

They are so cute and furry and soft and loveable and .... THEY ARE FARKING DELICIOUS!

Who am I kidding? I come from the WASPIEST COUNTY IN THE PROVINCE. I have eaten rabbit. I have eaten deer and moose and my uncles have eaten porcupine, beaver, bear and God only knows what other delicious critters.

Rabbit is one of the best foods a human can eat. Sorry. Jews, Not yours. But when the Messiahs come, that is going to be one heck of a Feast. Leviathan. Behemoth. Rabbit. Pork. Shellfish. Crustaceans. All among the yummiest things on Earth. I almost envy you. Well worth the wait, perhaps even worth the sacrifices and tears and oppression and hatred of the Gentiles.. Perhaps.

But I can eat all I want now, so I am sticking with the stupid Gentiles.

New Brunswick produces some of the best fish, game, berries, fruit and vegetables in the world. They sell our salmon as Nova Scotia Salmon, our lobster as Maine lobster, our best beer as foreign beer, and our maple syrup as Quebec or Vermont maple syrup (except for my cousins--they label their maple syrup with pride). Our potatoes are sold as both Maine and Idaho. We have the best of Nature's bounty in almost all things.

Mmmmm ... Wabbit. Tastes like lamb.

In fact, if you have ever eaten lamb in a restaurant, you have probably had rabbit. My apologies again to the Jews. Not kosher but God forgives those who do not know what they are doing or else he wouldn't have invented Republicans, Democrats and Libertarians (Libert-Ayrans not included. Offer void where prohibited by law. May not apply in Delaware or New Jersey.)

WABBIT. So fun to say they should have named a car after it.

The WOKE WAGON WABBIT. It IS what Jesus would drive.

Wild rabbits should be left alone except by the occasional hunter.

Tame rabbits are "small cattle". So are Guinea Pigs and Korean chubby puppies, for that matter. People even raise cockroaches that are disease free and meally worms. There is nothing the Chinese do not, will not eat, and they can make almost anything delicious, except Donald Trump.

Donald J. Trump does NOT taste like chicken. Tastes oily and foul.

Like GOOSE! AND Turducken.

DONALD TRUMP IS A TURDUCKEN.

Tastes like a filthy goose.

Bland and white like a turkey.

Was too chicken to fight in Vietnam.

Like every other Republican of wealth, took every deferrment going.

Even played the bone spur card.


You know I am going directly to Google that. I will let you know if I find an interesting number of hits.

EVERYTHING IS ABOUT DONALD TRUMP. EVEN WABBITS.

Origin of the most famous cooking joke ever:

First, catch your rabbit ....

Then you skin it, I guess. Very easy to do by the way. They come in a convenient pull-off skin, like bananas.

That's what I was thinking. Why are there multiple people on the side of the road in the middle of a wildfire for a rabbit? Are rabbits an endangered species in California?

My fiancé and I used to have a pet bunny and were pretty upset when we had to have her put down after her legs gave out :(
Coincidentally, he's in California on a work trip. Had to check the link and make sure it wasn't him trying to get a replacement.

It was not immediately clear what happened to the rabbit and its human savior, who declined to be interviewed by KABC but was praised as a hero online.

Here's what happened: The rabbit kicked the fark out of him with those giant back legs. Ailing that, it turned and bit him. Our hero is now in the hospital undergoing testing to make sure that he hasn't caught any of the myriad diseases that rabbits carry, and will also undergo treatment to make sure that he also din't pick up lice from that nice wild bunny. And the rabbit? It hopped in front of a car in its bid to escape the crazy man and is now dead.

Stump the Google. My favourite web game.

And I did, if you count putting a phrase or sentence in quotation marks.

First person to say "Donald Trump is a Turducken." on the web! Yaaaaaay!.

Mmmmm ... now I am thinking of delicious green frog legs and Kermit.

And that bunny's name was Woundwort. Thanks a farking lot, idiot human.
 
2017-12-07 02:06:47 PM  
Rabbits that kick the shiat out of you are called "hares" or "jackrabbits". They are not the same thing as Wabbits. There is no such thing as a jugged wabbit.

The rabbit that attacked Jimmy Carter was a swamp hare, the deadliest of the hare family, not a wee helpless Wabbit.

Those buggers can kill a grown man, even if he is not in a canoe and does not risk being knocked out of the canoe and drowned. The jokes were horrendously unfair  to Jimmy Carter in a way that Trump jokes can never, never be!
 
2017-12-07 02:08:27 PM  
Maybe he just wanted to put the bunny back in the box?
 
2017-12-07 02:08:49 PM  
If you want to save the world, eat more "small cattle" and TO HELL WITH DONALD J. TRUMP'S BEEFs. Er, BEEVES. Beefs.

Beeves. Beefs. Beeves. Beefs.

Let's cut the difference and say to Hell with LA BOUEF! On that turduckens and wabbits can agree!

Good thing he did. Otherwise, the rabbit might have gotten into the nearby town and caused some damage with its fellow bunnies.

Maybe this guy isn't hero but is instead an irresponsible pet owner who was hand-carrying his pet rabbit next to a giant forest fire for no good reason.

Maybe he declined to comment on his name and situation because he was dodging potential criminal prosecution.
