Cute Overload :D
I am the queen. QUEEN OF THE CARPET!
You can BOW at my—er I CAN BOW at your feet!
The pet store says I am a boy bunny, but—I don’t care!
I shall WEAR THIS TIARA AS LONG AS I LIKE!
Brandi C., he wears it well.
I want to snorgle him!
I think he disapproves.
Are we absolutely sure that this is a bunneh? It looks suspiciously like a chinchilla to me. I think it’s the ears.
Adorable tho. “He” would have looked fabulous on the red carpet Sunday night!
I agree with Martha… CHINCHILLA!
I think I want to ask for my three wishes now. fairy god-bunny.
“Like a Rhinestone bunneh
Got my picture on the ‘net, and splashed all across CO
Like a Rhinestone bunneh
Returning cards and letters from people I don’t care to know
With dispproval I can’t help but show…”
I agree. Definitely looks rather chinchilla-ey to me also.
Nahh, this is definitely a bunneh. Chinchillas’ heads are about the same size as their body, giving them a round shape overall.. This guy in the picture seems too.. “long” to be a chin. Google image “chinchilla” and compare their proportions to those of this guy. Definitely a bun.
I thought this was a chinchilla at first, but it looked kind of funny to be a chinchilla so I looked long and hard and then I realized it’s definately a dissaproving bun. hehe. You can tell by his furry front feet.
Chinchillas have paws more like hamsters and there are actually rabbits called chinchilla rabbits because they have fur that looks like chinchilla fur. This is probably a chinchilla rabbit.
It’s rabbit royalty, to be sure!
The headband part of the tiara is making the ears look short, but if you look closer, you can see they’re bunny ears. And a tiara is a much more sensible thing for a rabbit – male or female – to balance on her/his head than a pancake!
Sir Elton Bunneh …

good one, Aubrey,
Weird! looks as if there’s another pair of eyes looking through the tiara.
He kinda looks like Bugs Bunny in drag. Maybe some false eyelashes would please Her Majesty as well? A “Ring of the Nibelung” sing-along, perhaps?
Can we freeze CO now? Stop right here. Go no further. These latest new pics are the best ever. Take a break Meg. Put your feet up for awhile. Don’t touch your computer!!!
Ladies and Gentlemens…..
Princeeeeeeeeesssss Chin Chin!
OH wait. That’s a bunny! Der…..so thought it was a chinchilla.
Oh Bun-Hilda you are so wove-wy.
I know I can’t heeelllppp it!
It’s not a chinchilla, but a rabbit with chinchilla colouring. The official breed is the ‘Standard Chinchilla Rabbit’.
And he’s so cuuuuute!
All it’s missing is a little carrot-looking scepter!
Awwww…he looks just like my old bunny. I miss him so much.
Queer Eye for the Bunneh Eye?
Actually, bowing means the opposite to bunnehs than it does to us, so this works perfectly. To a human, bowing indicates the bower’s subservience; to a rabbbit, it means “You have permission to groom me now.”
I think I’m ded! Oh mah goodness. And thanks to the other CO folk–I knew I could count on you to decide whether he was a chinchilla or a bunny. That way, I don’t have to *totally* die for looking at him so long :)
whatever it is, i want to SNORG eeeeeeet!
Oh, that’s definatley a bun. A Chin cannot possibly master the “Exactally who the hell do you think you are?” look.
That’s funny that “the petstore said i’m a boy”…Waaaaaay back when, before i found rescue buns, i bough my first bun at a petstore, he was suppose to be a dwarf…turns out he is a 8.6 lb checkered giant mix.
WOW…one must wake up before trying to spell…
Bunnies firmly believe they are the kings (or queens) of all they survey, regardless of tiara-wearing. So this is simply fitting.
Looks like this Chinchilla is getting a “head” start on St Paddy’s Day. You know he’s got a pint behind him…the tiara is just to distract us!
Ugh, this is so cute it’s almost not to be borne. I LOVE him! Rabbits really are royalty.
This bunbun looks like he is ready to POUNCE! Same facial expression as some bounce-y, trounce-y flounce-y pounce-y funfunfunfunfun kittehs that I know!
I will be walking around with a permanent smile on my face today due to cutiepatootiebunitis.
I have been praticing how to curtsey my whole life – finally, the moment to use it has arrived!
where do you find these tiaras for the teeny tiny animals? seriously i’m going to explode and rainbows and stars will fly out from my body, its just too cute!
OK it totally did not occur to me how small that tiara would have to be for it to fit the bunny’s head, until I read Rae’s comment. Where DID you find that?
That’s the ugliest farking rabbit I’ve seen in a long time.
I disapprove of you thinking I am cute in this tiara.
I think it’s one of the little mini tiaras they sell for flower girls and such.
Where’s teh whiskars?
I don’t think his schnozzle is moving at 600 rpm’s.. so .. where are they?
I think you’ve outed him.
Oh, Aubrey, now I’m going to be singing “Rhinestone Bunneh” all day. But if it brings to mind this picture, that’s not a bad thing!
What I want to know is:
(a) how long did that tiara stay on his head before he shrugged it off?
(b) what does that guy who owned Oolong and now Yuebing think of this?
Are we really sure the tiara is there?
Perhaps we are hallucinating it, because it would be soooo completely suitable.
(Like the time I came back from a faculty cocktail party *convinced* that a certain professor had been wearing a conical party-hat.)
If a bunbun disapproves of a forest, is the forest really there?
If so, why?
“We are dressed for evening silflay, if you *don’t* mind. Move along….”
I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to start a whole controversy (bun v. chin). WHATEVER he is, he is very snorgable and adorable and I WANT HIM!!!
Can I borrow the tiara Saturday?
LOL, I am inordinately pleased that I know “silflay” is from Watership Down! I loved that book when I read it years ago, and I’ve always liked the word “silflay”, since then… I never expected to encounter it outside of the book though, lol!
Very cute, disapproving bun.
Rae, erin — you mean you don’t have a Bunneh Tiara Depot in your town? ::gasp!::
Why is this bunny classified in “Pocket Pets”? Bunnies have their own category!
in re lauowolf– seriously, is there not a high percentage of academics on CO?
The court now bows to the Royal Bunneh, Her Highness Patricia wearing her fabulous Family Tiara. Please do not send any more of your disapproval our way, us poor common folk ;0
Reasons Why this is a Bunneh and Not a Chinchinilla:
1)That Bunneh is a Bunneh… Chins ears have no fur! I know… I had 12 of the chin variety chins!
2)Them hoooge feets are bunneh’s feets… chins has delicate ikkle pawsy things what hold morsels and are cute.
Therefore this is a Definite Bunneh… It is also a definitely confuzzled bunneh…. epsecially if he is trooly a boy… but too attractive… even for a bunneh…
( I prefer chins but can appreciate a fine fluffmeister like anyone else!)
Tiaras like that are sold for babies – for christenings and stuffs.
I was at the National Halloween Costume and Party show last week, and saw many. I got a larger one for me. I wear it while doing housework!
that is the cutest pic ever… haha! such a princess =D
I wish I had a tiara I could do the housework in.
And little tiaras to put on my buns.
They ran away when I tried putting little hats on them though.
Your bunnies must have given you “Major” disaproving looks, after that and maybe even a Ha-rump.
lol, that’s adorable! such big bunny eyes. I think I might steal that pic for an LiveJournal icon.

Is anyone else in tears of laughter over this exchange? I keep getting this image of doing housework with little tiaras or pointy hats stuck to my behind.
Ha-rump indeed. (Don’t know if the pun was intentional or not, moneca, but it’s priceless!)
Judy B — it’s my opinion that EVERY femme (that’s every girly girl *and* every girly boy) should own a tiara! if you go to Claire’s or Icing (those kiddie accessory stores at the mall) around prom season, you can chose from quite a selection of low-priced ones.
AuntieMame — haha! i just got it. tiaras on my buns. oh, colloquial English is a glorious thing.
p.s. i like to imagine that you look like Rosalind Russell.
Meg or Theo, this is in the wrong category, should be in bunnies. Unless that’s a chinchilla? I can’t tell!
I think it’s a chinchilla because of the ears. Rabbit chinchilla whatever it’s adorable.
On second glance it’s a rabbit because of the twitchy nostril.
She’s Deffinitely a “wannabe” Sweet Potato Queen!
Anner, apart from being tall and thin and dark haired, not very like. But certainly more like RR than Lucille Ball, that’s for sure. (It seems to me that in the book, however, AM acted more like a crazy redhead, even though they played her dark haired in both movies.)
anner and Wendy — w00t for tiara-wearing femmes! I usually wear mine on my birthday, but I’m totally getting it out for cleaning now.
moneca – There may have been ha-rumping but they were hiding under the furniture so I couldn’t see them.
I’m certain their was a heavy air of disapproval though in the room though.
anner – I was thinking I might try making my own tiara. Maybe with little glittery bunnies on it…
How nice to see small fluffy animals of the male persuasion getting in touch with their feminine side. Although let’s face it, how often do you see a macho rabbit?
Some work while they’re whistling
Some sing while they’re show’ring
But I sing an aria
While wearing a tiar-ia.
I used to be affiliated with a troupe of drag queens. Trust me, once you’ve seen a group of men arguing over who gets to wear the tallest tiara, a lot of human behavior becomes much clearer.
To cute! I’m guessing the pet store got it wrong, though…that happens a lot to buns.
My Fuzz-fuzz is a total princess, too – she gets the best of everything! I’ve been planning to get her one of those pink cat beds with “Princess” in silver letters, and I think now I’ll have to get a tiara to go with it. She would probably throw it, though…she would disapprove of it not being *sparkly* enough.
Pretty. Even if he is a boy, let him wear it, it suits him well!
It’s Divine! Genderbending + really fat = Divine.
Oh my gosh, I just want to eat those cheeks.
Not sparkly enough?
Well this is the house-cleaning tiara, worn for your normal day-to-day disapproving.
What Princess Fuzz-fuzz would be interested in would probably be the justice-dispensing tiara, to be worn on occasions of a High State of Disapproval.
He’s very secure in his masculinity – I think it’s wunnerful!
Holli — that would be “bunnerful.” Keep up with the class, wouldja?
Meg – this is a bunny.
And this is a chinchilla:
V. funny pic!
“Although let’s face it, how often do you see a macho rabbit?”
If you hang out with rabbits, you’ll meet plenty of them – bunnies have attitude to spare!
E.Collison (& other Peeps) – I wasn’t sure at first, but now I’ve decided to share my impression:
Peeps, move it on over for the baddest bunneh. It’s middle name is Problem Child. This is one Thorobad bunneh!
(Hands mic & guitar to bunneh. Bunneh headbutts the tiara. Bunneh wails on the guitar.)
“On the day I was born, the nurses all gathered ’round
And they gazed in wide wonder, at the bun they had found
The head nurse spoke up, and she said leave this one alone
She could tell right away, that I was bad to the bone
Bad to the bone
Bad to the bone
B-B-B-B-Bad to the bone
Bad to the bone.”
Pyrit, can’t believe you passed up the opportunity…
“BBBBad to the Bun,
bbbad to the Bun…”
“Some work while they’re whistling
Some sing while they’re show’ring
But I sing an aria
While wearing a tiar-ia.”
Aubrey – you are too wonderful!
“I used to be affiliated with a troupe of drag queens. Trust me, once you’ve seen a group of men arguing over who gets to wear the tallest tiara, a lot of human behavior becomes much clearer.”
Suda – ain’t that the truth! ;-)
ebee – “too easy”, exactly. ;-)
On the subject of macho rabbits:
My bun Cal, Cal Capone when he’s bad, is a total defier of bunny gender roles. One the one hand he’s a total gangster– He often will rush an approaching hand, especially if it contains a treat, with a (he thinks) terrifying grunting noise. On the other hand, often when he does that there is no treat and he is demanding petting. He also will hop up to a lying down person and lean on their face until said petting is delivered.
“let them have cake!!….err….rice cake! let them have rice cake!!!”
Here are chinchilla rabbits:
And here’s a chinchilla:
If you ask me, the guy pictured here looks more like the former.
