The Bad Guy

Why Can’t the English teach their reporters to use correct Horror metaphors?

My response to the article on “Frankenbunnies” in today’s “This Is London”:
The term “Frankenbunny” was used and I became very annoyed. Why? Because what was described was not a “Frankenbunny” but an “Island of Dr. Moreau bunny.” The bunny is a chimera, made from splicing human and bunny genes together.

In order to make a “Frankenbunny” one must start with a grand assortment of recently deceased bunny parts. Then one must sew together these bunny parts and reanimate with lightning.

Then this bunny must be able to say “fire…BAD!!!” And kill your significant other. After this the creator of said “Frankenbunny” must recognize that this bunny is an abomination in the eyes of god.  This must all climax in a showdown in the arctic circle where the Frankenbunny hops away from ice floe to ice floe.

But, alas, the bunny described in this article is a Moreau bunny. It will not be nearly as cool. It will merely disgust Island visitors who just want to enjoy a Pina Colada on the beach without wondering if this Bunny-waiter needs to be tipped.

So sad.

  1. Gah! THAT’s not a frankenbunny! That’s Frankenbunny’s monster!

    A Frankenbunny is obviously a long-eared mad scientist rodent which assembles teh aforementioned grand assortment of recently deceased bunny parts, etc. With a gothic castle-warren.

  2. Looking back at this post, I’d really like to see a bunny version of Frankenstein. And I’m not talking about a “30-second” short…I’m talking about a feature length, full-throttle, Bunnystein adventure! And I want Henry Kissinger to voice the monster and Dana “Master Shake” Snyder to play the eponymous doctor.

    I like bunnies.
