And This Is My “Bun of Destiny” Pose

Leaning confidently into the wind as it whips back my hair, gazing pensively at the horizon… Now there’s a bunny with vision, you must be saying to yourself.

Writes Lauren W.: “This is my pet rabbit Benjamin when we first got him. Hope you think he is cute!”

    Kinda looks like KISS bunny, or maybe a Rorschach bunny…

  2. willendorfVenus says:

    Lauren, he is cute, without a doubt. Objectively, provably cute. Also, I think he is cute.

  3. Your hopes are realised. Everyone in my office thinks he is cute.

  4. Apparently, I didn’t communicate specifically enough in my original comment. I am directed to add: DA NOZE!!! and DA FEETS!!! and DA FWHISKERZ!!!111!!!

    Man, I love temping.

  5. baby birdie says:

    And eyelashes. Don’t forget the eyelashes.

  6. It’s been PROVEN BY SCIENCE™ !

  7. MommaMackie says:

    He’s a doll!

  8. That’s a tribble with googlely-eyes glued on it!

  9. victoreia says:

    That would explain the lack of disapproval……

  10. Cuteness? He’s got it. Cute? He is. On a scale of 1 to cute — he’s cute. Did I mention cute? Now, in terms of “where are his ears?”…… ;-)

  11. Lauren, he is cute to the bajillionth power! Love his face.

  12. Alice Shortcake says:

    “I see the cool, clear eyes of a seeker of wisdom and truth…”

  13. “Oh, I believe in yoooouuuuu!” :-)

    *song stuck firmly on replay in my head now*

  14. The minute I clicked on the link (boom, boom)
    I could tell this was a post of distinction
    A real threadwinner
    Well written, so obscure
    I think this is the kind of comment that wins for sure . . .

  15. ElishaB. says:

    Oh my, I am showing my age (I guess) but I know this song……

    But lets get right to the point (boom, boom)
    I want a bun of true disapproval
    A real carrot eater
    Willing to snuggle, anytime
    Say Benjamin don’t ya know you’re running through my mind?

    snerk ;)

  16. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    *singsong voice*
    “I know the melody….” :)

  17. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    1. Just the long silky grey against the particular deep/bright green of long grass is lovely.
    2. Cute bunneh? Check.
    3. Now to The Business at Hand.
    NTM penned an entirely lovely little bit for the bunneh’s benefit.
    However my own brain is so determined to play [au Lewis Carroll]
    with vocabulareh that what I SAW, was “…My “Bun of DENsity Pose” !!!!!

  18. sunnylessmum says:

    That bunny is beyond cute, he is gorgeous! What a great shot of him Lauren! :)

  19. TrixandSam says:

    Of course he has Vision! He eats carrots after all….

  20. HAW!

  21. Heh. If this picture was taken from the back, he’d look like Emo Pony.

    Except, you know, shorter, and furrier, and more lapin-like.

  22. Pat Trenner says:

    And of course CO has already published the irresistible and melodramatic Emo Bun:

  23. marthava says:

    Abs adorks. Abs.

  24. That’s definitely a guinea pig.

  25. Nope, check the fluffy front bunny feets, no peeg toesies present.

  26. Yep. Without showing us the ears, he definitely looks like a peeg.

  27. And I will never be hungry agan.

  28. THREADJACK: Peeps, Tigers on Surfboards!

  29. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    They’ve got Charlie Sheen blood!

  30. Mary (the first) says:

    NTMTO Mike, I love you, really I do, but with this comment you have insulted tigers in such a way that I may never be able to forgive you. .. Maybe ..

  31. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    To Senor NTM: *snerk*

  32. Mary (the first) says:

    What in the world? I love tigers but I didn’t know they could surf. (?!)

  33. He is bunnylicious!!!

  34. Completely 100% plus cute!

  35. With the invisible ears, he could almost be mistaken for a guinea pig.

  36. I thought so too! A very fancy guinea peeg.

  37. It is a good thing Benjamin is a bunny of vision because’s definitely not a bunny of hearing. NO EARSES!

  38. *snerk*

  39. (The Original) Mel says:

    I have an uncontrollable urge to snorgle him and cuddle him on my shoulder. I wonder if the Bun of Destiny pose is used to convey this message subliminally to humans?

  40. Hon Glad says:

    The wind swept look, so enigmatic.

  41. Where are his ears? I thought he was a guinea pig at first.

  42. Rachael says:

    Cute? I just looked up the word in my Funk & Wagnalls and lo and behold, there was a picture of Benjamin! I am not making this up.

  43. crashnandicoot says:

    He’s the Fabio of the bunny world!

  44. He’s adorable!!

  45. musicnote says:

    Adorable ball of floof!! VERY cute …

  46. Stephanie says:

    He is beyond cute!

  47. How cute! I had an amazingly cute baby rabbit, but he died last sunday, and I’ve been very sad. and has helped me with the sadness! Thanks! :D<3
