Horror Re-enacted by Bunnies

Tired of politics and war? Take a break!

Andrew Sullivan linked to Jaws in 30 seconds, re-enacted by bunnies.

Sean LaFreniere linked to Alien in 30 seconds, re-enacted by bunnies.

Now I'm linking to The Shining in 30 seconds, re-enacted by bunnies.

These are great. The first is a little bit funny. The second is a little bit funnier. And like one of those rare jokes that somehow keep getting funnier every time you hear it, The Shining in 30 seconds is the best.

(The Exorcist in 30 seconds isn't bad, either.)

How could anyone tire of politics and war?

And I hate bunnies.

The Jaws one takes the cake for me. They're all good, it's just that dancing bunny on the surfboard at the end that puts it over the top.

Wow. The guy who does these has a Master's degree. I can just see that one...

"So what do you do for a living?"

"Well I have a Master's in Media Studies and now I, uh, well I draw funny bunny cartoons."

Its the wonder of the internet. Years ago, you'd never see anything like this, except maybe in some underground comic, but even then, it would have had to have been R.Crumb relevant or something like that.

Now people can just think up stuff and do it, and it gets out there to be seen. And I think he makes some money off it.

Better that he makes funny bunny cartoons with that Media Studies degree, than become some sort of humorless hack reporter.

Anybody seen Lord of the Peeps?

In December I look forward to the 2004 election re-enacted by bunnies.

No way, man. These candidates aren't worthy of bunny re-enactment. Instead, may I suggest the following:

For Bush, try and picture the dumbest dog you've ever seen. The kind of dog you can play the same tricks on over and over and over. The kind that chases his tale, endlessly.

For Kerry, try and recall those gigantic talking trees from the Lord of the Rings. You know, the supposedly wise ones who could never make up their minds on anything. I listen to Kerry and I think of those gigantic tree-creatures. He even kind of speaks like them.
