    Hmm....sounds like something to get the animal rights folks' tails in a bunch! lol Probably tastes like Chicken stew. I used to go hunting the little furry ones when I was a teen with my dad and brother. Nothing like seeing the easter bunny de-furred and gutted. Kinda takes the fun out of Easter. I didn't do any hunting as the guns they had knocked me on my bottom and gave me big bruises at that point.

    Talking Chocolate???

    Hmm... just checking... but... you guys DO realize that those little round brown things in the yard by the "easter" bunnies aren't chocolate eggs, right? ... or chocolates of any kind.....

    (I had to explain this to my little cousin years ago.)

    Those little round brown things are incipient bunny bombs! Collect them in a 5 gallon bucket, add water to cover and let ferment for a week or two. Place a hand trowel full of this goo into a plastic baggie (the old fashioned kind that you twist tie shut)and TIGHTLY tie it. These "missles" will burst against immovable objects when launched firmly. (Aren't you glad you didn't live in my neighborhood when I was growing up?)
