  14. NebraskaErin says:

    I’d like to join in but “Greased Bunneh” doesn’t sound right.

    The bun in the pic does not look greasy at all.

  15. (to the tune Grease is the word)

    Bunneh is the word (is the word is the word)
    He’s got fuzz he’s got moosefeet…
    Bunneh is the style the peeps love (the peeps love)
    in the sand on the beach…

  16. A thinker says:

    A BUNNY on the BEACH!

    It doesn’t get any better than this. Seriously.

  17. Bunneh my love
    I miss you more than words can say
    Bunneh my love
    I can’t snorgle while you’re away
    Oh-hoh ho ho

  18. ROFL at all the peeps! Whoa, Meg, you hit the earworm on the ‘tocks with this one!

    And, littlem, you beat me to Beach Bun! Hee!

    *wanders off humming*

  19. LOL to all, but I think MamaDawn’s song is best! :)

    ADORABLE bun-bun!

  20. The Guy Over There says:

    I liked Yuebing’s (the latest bunny of Oolong’s owner) bunny shots on the beach. It was cute seeing her run towards/away from the scary shore.

  21. I got buns…they’re multiplying.

    And I’m loooooosen control.

    Cuz the cuteness they’re supplyin…it’s electrifyin’

    Better shape up (oh oh oh) cuz I need a bun. And my heart is set on floof. Better shape up (oh oh oh). You better understand. that to my bun I will be true.

    You’re the bun that I want. (you are the bun I want-yoh oh oh). HONEY. The bun that I want. (You are the bun I want-yo oh oh).

    The bun I neeeeed…oh yes indeeeeed.

  22. jenn, awesom-o!

  23. what a mellow bun. i think the sound & the surge of the waves would freak out my bunny boy.

  24. “I got buns…they’re multiplying” and “Bunneh lovin’, happened so fast” .. hmm.. where *do* buns get their reputation?

  25. you guys are too much…. I am laffin so hard I can’t even compose my own lyrical bunsterpiece!! Def some of the best comment posts in a while! you guys rock! and so does that bun….

  26. Yaaay! Beachballbun! I have been dreaming of this moment. *faints*

  27. Was your bunny scared to be on the beach? I only ask because I’m in Tampa with my bunner, Simon, and my Dad keeps asking if I’ve taken Simon to the beach yet? I’m scared he’s going to FREAK!! Any thoughts?

    P.S. LUVVV CUTEOVERLOAD — BEST THING EVA!

  28. little miao says:

    “beachballbun”, lol, IndyBun!! A perfect characterization of that round little furball.

  29. Beach bunny! Hubba Hubba.

  30. BBBB! BeachBallBunneyBingo!

  31. (Adapted from “Beach Baby” by First Class, 1974):

    Beach bunny, beach bunny,
    Give me your paw,
    Give me somethin’ that I can remember
    Just like before,
    We could hop by the shore
    In the moonlight
    Beach bunny, beach bunny,
    There on the sand,
    From July to the end of September
    Surfin’ is fun,
    We’d be out in the sun everyday

  32. You guys are killin’ me with these parodies. XD

  33. It is a really good thing that I never saw a bunny at the beach, because I would surely be rendered unconscious by the sheer adorableness (and surprise), and probably drown. The only thing better than a warm day at the beach would be a warm day at a rabbit-infested beach. Too bad bunnies are not normal inhabitants of sandy dunes. I would spend way more time at the seaside if I had fuzzy bunnies to share my towel with.

  34. Having been a disc jockey since the 70’s, I have an unfair advantage at lyrics, but I hand my crown to Jenn. Those are the best ever!

    *bows and hands over crown o’pudding.

  35. *singing* Well them east coast buns are hip
    I wanna rub those floppy ears
    And the southern buns with the way they hop
    They make me squee when Im down there

    The mid-west fluffy bunnies really make you feel alright
    And the northern buns with their muzzlepuffs
    They keep their humans warm at night

    I wish they all could be lag-o-morphic girls
    I wish they all could be lag-o-morphic girls
    I wish they all could be lag-o-morphic giiiirls… *wanders off ducking thrown tomatoes* ;-)

    Sorry, Meg – saw this story and could not resist posting it…

    OAP posts cat
    http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_2047665.html?menu=

    The bit that slays me is the last paragraph:
    “Mrs Schonberg said: “I had not even noticed he [the cat] had gone until they called, I thought he was asleep in the airing cupboard.””

    /threadjack

  37. That bunny definitely looks a bit nervous in the first picture. He’s definitely thinking, “What’s making that scary roaring sound? I better hide behind this rock until it goes away.”

    Looks like someone’s been taking hiding lessons from Numo —

  38. Peg of Tilling says:

    “Lag-o-morphic girls.” Bwahahahaha!

    Sarah, how does your bunny do on vet trips and car rides etc.? ‘Cause if Simon is freaked out by unfamiliar and overstimulating environments, a day at the beach won’t be a day at the beach for him or you. Even if he’s generally calm, I’d make sure you have him in some kind of harness or carrier so you can get him home quick if he’s real unhappy, especially if you don’t know how he’s going to react.

  39. mama dawn…girl please. we all must share teh cute and teh silly.

    Two Dragons…love the leap from grease to beach boys. that was a fantastically effortless transistion.

  40. Denita,

    *Standing ovation*

  41. *Sitting ovations to you ALL*

    D2D, the beach boys was the perfect morph after the beachbun!

    Ok, I have GOT to go to the grocery store….

    *O well, o well, o well…..Oh oh those bunnnneeeee ‘tocks!*

  42. If I have to come to work on Mondays, it can only help to have beach bunnehs AND wonderful music to greet me. Thanks to all!!

  43. threadjack continued
    Teej, I love that story, “I thought he was asleep in the airing cupboard” heh.

  44. Hope he’s wearing sunscreen. Sunburnt buns are no fun!

  45. Hope he’s wearing sunscreen! Sunburnt buns are no fun!

  46. OMG, D2D, that is the bestest!

  47. I love the strange placement of the bunny on the beach. Okay… SQUEE. I wish it was summer.

  48. I have been wanting to bring my oldest cat (13 crabby years old) to the beach for years to let her frolic in the surf, which I’ve always had a hunch that she’d enjoy. Now I have evidence from the rabbit community in support of this!

  49. Was this the alternative cover to ‘Pet Sounds’?

  50. Thanks, Peg! Simon rode with me all the way from Virginia to Florida and did pretty well. I can’t say he was thrilled about the drive (can’t say I was too thrilled either — the drive takes FOREVA) but overall, I think he tolerated it quite well.

  51. SUN THOSE BUNS!!! lol. Such cuteness. And a good song too……

  52. I just noticed he has a paw over his nose in pic #2… must not like the smell of fish.

  53. “Pet Sounds” would have been even more of a masterpiece had Brian W had a bunny chorus.

  54. Little surfer, little bun…made my heart come all undone….

  55. No way! Mine would be t-hare-ified if I put them on the beach!

  56. Arvay! I don’t believe you.
    everyone know that Grumpus Bunn [etc] Esq. ain’t afraid of nuthin’!

  57. “13 crabby years!* Lol! I had the crabbiest cat on earth and she lived 19 years. Long live Crabby Cats!!

  58. TJ, I am sure glad Felix was found safe! That’s worse than the frog in the bad o’ lettuce!

  59. to “Sandy” from Grease”

    Stranded at the be-each
    Branded – beyaatch.
    What will they say
    Monday at the hutch.

    Oh Bunneh, can’t you see
    I’m in misery
    We made a start, now we’re apart
    There’s no bun left for me.
    Your ‘tocks have flown
    I’m all alone
    I sit and wonder
    Why-y-y oh why
    You hopped away
    Oh bunneh.

  60. I tried just the chorus of “Greased Lightning” too – hey why not, since when is lightning greasy?

    Go greased bunneh
    You’re burning up the rabbit run
    Greased bunneh, go greased bunneh

    Go greased bunneh
    You’re coasting thru the lettuce patch
    Greased bunneh, go greased bunneh

    You are supreme
    Your peeps will scream
    For greased bunneh

  61. mariser, just what are you implying about my sweet boy? Hrrmph! *stamps foot*

  62. Netherland Dwarf rabbit, owner!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ says:

    A literal beach bunny!
    Oh wait I’m thinking of snow bunnies /skiing…
    I don’t think that phrase I used is used re: Beach dwellers…Oh well…

    Anyhoo…This B be,(and every B unbun be,
    So very cute!

    Yea for bunbun pics!!

  63. Faster than a greased bunny?

  64. I don’t know; I find these pictures rather sad and wistful, like Mr. Bunny’s girl is now gone ’cause summer’s over. It also kind of reminds me of those Irish/Celtic songs about “my love’s at sea, will he ever return?”

  65. Tony James says:

    (With apologies to Robert Smith of The Cure)

    Sitting on the beach with a bun in my hand,
    Sniffing at the sea,
    playing on the sand,
    Snorgling my brains out with the wabbit in the surf…

    (sorry – couldn’t come up with a final line)

  66. me? Arvay, you are the one who said your buns be ‘t-hare-ified’ on the beach. I was gallantly rushing to defend your sweet boy. and he is sweet. but fierce!

  67. Netherland Dwarf rabbit, owner!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ says:

    Really great bunneh themed/Grease song spins y’all!

  68. Ah, I see! I thought you were implying that my sweet precious schnookums might me tough or something! I do apologize! Certainly no-one would imply that he is anything but a snuggle fluffmuffin!

  69. chillinkzp says:

    what a great way to enter into a monday… bunny! on the beach! and monday listening on the EZ-bunny station known as COBR (c.o. bunny radio… couldn’t come up with anything creative)

  70. Little bunny cottontail
    Makes my heart begin to fail
    You make me squee, little Cottontail
    Cottontail my little cottontail

    I have seen you on the shore
    Where there’s never been a bun before
    You make me squee, little cottontail
    Cottontail, my little cottontail

    Eating alfalfa pellets together
    While parsley we would grow
    In your warren I’d think of you
    Everywhere I go

    You’d be rescued from the pet shop
    So that you’d be free to hop
    You make me squee little cottontail
    Cottontail, my little cottontail…

  71. When I grow up, I wanna be Aubrey. :)

  72. don’t we all?

  73. You peeps are FABU!!!!! I don’t know HOW You come up with all that stuff, but don’t stop!!!

    Makes me want to go home and watch Grease, while looking at C.O.!!

  74. Peg of Tilling says:

    Simon might be a beach bunny for real, Sarah, who knows? but I’d make sure to have a way to corral him fast in case of dogs or blind bunny panic…in addition to the basic bunny equipment of chilled carrot juice, lounge chair, and tawdry paperback (Kitty Kelly’s expose of Beatrix Potter is number 1 on the Chicago Bun-Times bestseller list).

  75. Simon could possibly be, a beach bunner. I do have a soft carrier that he usually rides in for vet visits so I would definitely put him in that. Thanks again for the advice and I’ll let you know how he does.

  76. This pic is fantastic. Very surreal. Might be my new favorite *bunny* photo on CO.

  77. “you hit the earworm on the ‘tocks”

    [looking at Lauri with 1 eyebrow up]
    [slowly shaking head]
    [laughing & snorting inside]

  78. Don’t hold those snorts in too long, T-O. It can get dangerous!

    Every darn one of these songs is fantastic! But, I ask you, where else on this planet can you read the line “Sittin’ on the beach with a bun in my hand..”, TJ?

  79. Bunny looks so contemplative and artistic, especially in the first pic. I’ll bet he writes poetry.

  80. Sittin’ on the dock with a bun
    Wasting time…

  81. Second picture:

    *A wella, a wella, awell- a grain of sand up my nose!*

  82. Tony James says:

    (with apologies to John Masefield)

    “I must down to the seas again,
    to the lonely sea and the sky,
    And all I ask is a fluffy bun and some tocks to steer her by.”

    [alt. by Spike Milligan]
    I must go down to the sea again,
    To the lonely sea and the sky,
    I left my little bun bun there,
    I wonder if she’s dry.”

  83. LOL, TJ!

    Primo!

  84. Netherland Dwarf rabbit, owner!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ says:

    Look at me I’m a sandy B! Burstin’ with sqeeality!
    Won’t hop to sea but the beach is so me…’cause I’m a sandy B!

    I can no longer read CO while I’m on conference calls. I almost didn’t make it to the mute button while reading about the cat in the post. And then the “earworm ‘tocks comment”…

  92. Peg:

    When I was little and had to go to Camp, our group was called ‘The Beach Bunnies’. A horrible time.

    LC:

    Sittin’ with a bun in the sun
    We’ll be sittin’ when the evenin’ comes
    A cottontail at my side
    By me is where it wants to abide
    We’re sittin’ on our ‘tocks at the bay
    Watchin’ the tide, roll away
    Sittin’ on our ‘tocks at the bay
    Wastin’ time

    Before I discovered CO
    Nothing could brighten my day
    I had nothin’ to live for
    Till a little bunny came my way
    We’re just sittin’ on our ‘tocks at the bay
    Watchin’ the tide roll away
    Sittin’ on our ‘tocks at the bay, wastin’ time

    Bunny, my viewpoint you’ve changed
    Nothing, nothing seems the same
    The peeps are the people I’m sticking to
    They’re gonna keep us both sane

    I’m sittin’ here feeding your parsley
    Never feeding you sparsely,
    Just so you’ll never leave me alone
    We’re just sittin’, on our ‘tocks at the bay
    Watchin’ the tide roll away
    Sittin’ on our ‘tocks at the bay
    Wastin’ time

  93. I’ve only had my bun 2 months, but I am 2 blocks from the beach (Lake Michigan) and from the park (full of unsprayed dandelions) in the other. I can’t wait till she is used to her harness so I can take her out for dig-dig-diggins and leafy munchings!

  94. Woot! That will be grand, Wendy, and prime photo ops, too! :)

  95. lurkertype says:

    O.M.G.

    Best CO musical post EVAR!!!

    And the beachbun is adorable.

  96. Bravo, Aubrey! Such genius.

    Ahem…

    By the sea there once was a bunny,
    Who found the smell of fish quite funny
    She walked in the sand
    And thought it quite qrand
    Until she got scared and took off on a run-ny.

    Okay, so I was making it up as I went along and rhymed my way into a corner. (I just wanted to play along…)

  97. Pinkey's girl says:

    Does anyone know where this beach is? It looks amazing, and so few resorts come pre-stocked with Snuggly bunnies these days.

  103. To the tune of Yellow Submarine:

    In the land where I was born
    lived a bun who loved the sea
    and he’d sit
    upon the sand
    It was where he liked to be…
    We all love us some bunny on the beach
    bunny on the beach
    bunny on the beach
    We all snorgle the bunny on the beach
    Bunny on the beach
    Bunny on the beach

  104. (Cue Bobby Darin)

    Somewhere beyond the sea
    Somewhere waitin’ for me
    My bunny sits on golden sands
    And watches the ships that go sailin’.

  105. Robbie, you HAD to mention Bobby Darin:

    “Oh the bun has pretty fur dear
    And he shows it pearly white
    On the shoreline he is seen, dear
    Though he’s keeping out of sight

    Python says he bites with his teeth dear
    But a bunny I cannot dread
    Just to see him on the beach, dear
    I don’t believe what Monty Python said

    On the boardwalk, in Santa Cruz (dontcha know)
    On those rides, just without fail
    Someone has an all-day pass
    Does that someone have a cottontail

    That sea water makes me shiver
    But a bun has protective down
    The down’s just for the win-ter
    Bet you bunny’s back in town

    Lop Miller disappeared dear
    After drawing out all his hard earned stash
    And Mini-Rex spends like a sailor
    Did our boy do something rash

    Lion Headed, Neatherlandish,
    Belgian Hare – they’re all reknown
    O the times are outta sight dear
    Now that bunny’s back in town”

  106. Tony James says:

    Never know how much I snorgle,
    never know how much I care
    When I put my buns around me,
    I get a skwee-ver that’s so hard to bear
    You give me skweever…when you snorgle, skweever when you floof me tight
    Skweever! in the morning, skweever all through the night.
    Meg lights up the daytime, Teh-0 lights up the night
    I light up when they posts new stuff, and you know they’re gonna treat you right.

    (anyone else bored at the office today? :)

    [reads Aubrey's stuff and throws in the towel]

  109. Rabbit don’t surf!

  110. Holy Shite, sh&T, crap and holy MOLY….

    What is it about THIS bun and THIS beach that has centered a vortex of musical energy over it??

    Day is done.
    Still the bun
    Sits alone
    On the beach
    In the sand
    All is well
    Safely rest
    Buns are grand.

  111. Tony James says:

    Bunneh bunneh bunneh, must be sunneh, sittin’ on the sand…

  112. AuntieMame says:

    TJ, I’m still trying to picture you with your buns around you…

  113. TJ shore likes to sing about his buns! :D

  114. You said “shore”. [SNURK]

  115. Lol, I’m actually in a production of Grease right now! XD This is just adorable!!!

  116. Lagomorphic! Everyone has officially hopped off the bunny reservation (and onto the beach, apparently): I’m thinking of Eve Arden bunny at the high school PA microphone.

    Lovin’ the Bobby Darrin floof, and I am happy for giggles on a tough health day (a diagnosis of diabetes will not keep me from all this sweet stuff!).

  117. acelightning says:

    Little bunny looks so wistful and lonesome there on the beach…

    (I’m surprised, though, that s/he wasn’t terrified, either by the noise of the surf, or of all that open space with nothing to hide under. And I don’t think sand is very good for digging burrows – wouldn’t they cave in?)

  118. Aubrey, I’m in awe of your MacBun-ness!!!

    And yo Arvay! D’ya think Bunn would like a little beach buggy of his own, for cruisin’? ;-)

    As for the surrealaity [I know, it's not a word] of pic 1, yes. (Tho’ said bun looks skeert.) In pic 2, some serious groomin’ is goin’ on.

  128. this is THE BEST comment page i have ever seen in Cuteoverload history. (including the huffin kittehs one…)

    you guys are great :)

  129. I love it!! I tried to send a picture of my kitten at the ocean, but I can’t figure out how to send the pictures…it kept returning as a send failure. Where do you send the pics.??

  130. hi Heather,
    if you are sending your picture to cuteoverload@gmail.com you are sending it to the right place
    (link to the same address on left-hand column under “Got Cute?”
    unfortunately, due to the large amount of submissions, often the mailbox runs out of space; Mistress Meg is good about cleaning it out frequently, but then it fill up again…
    you may want to try to send it later. also, if you can, is better to send a link to where the picture is hosted (like on flickr, aycu, photodump, etc) than the picture itself. it saves bandwidth.
    good luck! a picture of kitten-at-the-ocean is surely delightful.

    this is delicious, you guys. in addition, in reference to “my bonny lies over the ocean” : When I was little this was one of my favorite songs because I thought the words WERE as Subhangi suggested “my bunny lies over the ocean”. yes, lil albs, singing loudly about bunnies accross seas. most touching.
