R - Rabbits

Rabbits are evil. I know most people have this idea that rabbits are cute and cuddly little furry bundles of happiness. Wrong! Anyone who lives on a farm or has a garden can confirm that rabbits are spawned in the abyss and claw their way through into our world to devour all that is green and useful and wreak havoc and destruction. As the owner of a plant farm, I know first-hand the extent of their ravenous appetites. There are few things more infuriating than spending an entire day planting dozens of trees and shrubs, only to come out the next day and find them gnawed down to the ground. Cute and cuddly? I don't think so.

Granted, there are a few exceptions. Hare Ouigeaux, Bugs Bunny, and Jessica Rabbit come to mind. They are all tolerable for various reasons. All others call for the full-on Elmer Fudd treatment. Lock and load, Baby, lock and load!
