Well, that explains the accent.

I thought it tasted continental.

Lack of diversity in the rabbit kingdom....damn.

Ha yeh. I've been hating on these Forbes bastards ever since they tried to start foisting off their candylandish astronomical pablum on an unsuspecting, semi-educated public, cuz I know where they came from and what they stand for. Screw this company man, they're part of the problem.

As someone who has had several pet rabbits, the reason they are European is very simple. European Rabbits are social (like dogs), American Rabgbits are solitary (like cats)

Random info, but if you have a pet rabbit and a garden, use the poop as fertilizer. It is probably the best organic fertilizer you're going to get at home.

Like all things in life we can blame the Dutch. The Flemish Giant would not exist otherwise. So docile and tasty

Are they descendents of the rabbit of caerbannog? If, so, I may have soiled my underarmour.

But they pay us to push their clickbait.

Fark is powerless to stop it.

Best Korea imported them with the intentention to breed them for food. Good idea.

But Kim held a party where  they ate all 20.

I am still surprised at the number of people who have never eaten rabbit. I suppose my growing up with rural grandparents makes me (more of) an oddity in urban, sophistimacated San Fran Cisco, but bunny be tasty, yo.

/ don't get me started on the startling lack of decent biscuits and gravy

My older brother used to keep rabbits. He got one of those giant ones. When I went with him and Dad to pick it up it was in a box in the front seat.
We stopped for burgers at Dad's favorite drive through place.
He then pulls around and taps on the window. "I have a complaint there was a hare in my burger" and holds up the rabbit.

Well,
That explains why the other rabbits are dead of smallpox...

Keep one as a household pet for a few years, and the idea of eating rabbits will seem as unconventional as eating a dog or cat.

Rabbits are weird that way, one of the few animals that are simultaneously livestock, pests, and pets depending on the area.  I'm thankful that I have the latter luxury, but I can also see why the Australians want to exterminate them and why the Norks want to eat them.

In any case, Flemish Giants aren't good for meat.  They grow slowly and have big bones.  You'll probably have to feed them 100 calories for every one you get back.

Bunbun agrees.  His birth cert says Holland Lop so...

Bunny is definitely tasty. I'm pretty compelled to order it when it's on the menu, but it's not super common in America.

Sweet... bunny topic. Mine are for eating and show. They're really good on the sustainable food scale since they are fiber to protein converters.

Part of the reason it's less common in America has to do with how meat is processed for mass consumption. I easily produce enough to sell. Getting inspected is nearly impossible. So unfortunately most of mine if I went that route would need to go to pet food which doesn't pay the bills.

Look, the only played a tiny part in the slave trade and rebranded themselves, so no foul.

Besides the other group of slavers ride bicycles and have a proper marking on urinals to reduce toxic males from being toxic males.

Oh, and what the EFF is up with the toilet "shelf" that requires to for the bunghole to be placed properly?
