Words cannot express… A very… I don’t know what image of an Easter in Hollywood. Large rabbit with Jean Parker and Mary Carlisle

Just in case you’ve had too much of cutesy bunnies this season, Ms Vickie Lester, who blogs at Beguiling Hollywood, can fix that. Stop by to learn why Monty Python didn’t really know the first thing about scary rabbits. When I was a kid, I was terrified of lambs. My parents thought it was weird, but Vickie shows that there’s more going on than we think with these seemingly “harmless” creatures.

  1. I don’t know what’s freakier: the rabbit, or that the starlets laid those eggs 😉 .
    Have a happy one. xox, V


    • One Easter morning, a long time ago, I was sitting on the front porch, shortly after sunrise, half awake, with a cup of coffee. A black rabbit came hopping by. Now this was a clean, well groomed bunny, not a wild critter. Clearly some kid’s Easter pet had bolted. None the less, it was one of those chill-up-the-spine, “I have to be dreaming,” moments. I’ve never taken rabbits for granted since then. Have a happy one yourself, and thanks for all the surreal bunny photos!


  2. Terrified of lambs, eh? That’s a new one. Maybe there’s a story there. Love the photo, but I can’t find anything about Monty Python. Am I missing something?


    • Ah, references too obscure! The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog, one of the most ferocious beasts ever to walk the earth, was from “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” -http://terrymalloyspigeoncoop.files.wordpress.com/2012/04/killer_rabbit.jpg

      As an adult I deciphered the lamb phobia. It derived from a picture book I had when very young (still in print) called “The Animals’ Merry Christmas.” One story showed this lamb ornament that over the years lost it’s bell, an eye, a leg, etc – much like the velveteen rabbit. In the story text, the now grownup mother who had the ornament new as a kid fixes it up again for her kid. But I think when I first came across the book, the text was a bit beyond me, or else the I didm’ read the story. Without being able to articulate it, I associated lambs with dismemberment.
