Those Rabbit People

There is a barn dedicated just to rabbits and fowl at the fair. For some odd reason, Luke loves this barn best. But the rest of us are old enough to pick up on some things that make us uncomfortable being there.

Rabbit people are freakin' weirdos. At least the ones at our fair are. They set up a table under a tent at the barn entrance and sit there off and on through the day with their rabbits. They brush them, paint their nails (yes they do!), pet them, sling them over a shoulder like a baby. It's just weird. And it seems that the owners are all Goth or punk. Tattoos must be a requirement for owning a rabbit at the fair, as well as slutty dress standards. Our particular favorite is the Boob Lady. Her melons aren't so much the canteloupe kind as the watermelon kind (and that's not really an exaggeration). But it's the heart tat in her cleavage that keeps us gagging.

Just to prove that rabbit people are weird, here's what we saw today.

Pheeeeew! I thought we were going to see the tatooed watermelons. I have been to a fair since high school. Maybe it's time to go again.

Let me try again, I hav NOT been to a fair since hight school. It's probably time to go again. The last time I went, I heard Chris Ledoux.

That's intense and sounds like the people who have Yorkies. *shudder*

I bet those bunnies are waiting for an opportune moment to use their bunny chompers on those pepole.

Flea said...

Awww! They're all so CUTE! Our Brian would never have let us throw him over our shoulder. He'd have clawed our eyes out first.

I didn't tell you about my cleavage tatt?

Cecily R said...

Oh NO! Gracie has been begging for a rabbit. Should I expect tattoos and black lipstick to come next?

The Sports Mama said...

Strangely, that little white bunny looks like she's got entirely too much eye makeup on..... rather like any 13 year old girl. :)

I don't know, I hear those dog people are pretty off their rocker, too. ;-)

Caution Flag said...

Burgh baby beat me to it! I was going to comment on dog breeders :)

HAHAHAHA! I use to have three rabbits and I don't recall doing anything like that. I'm also not a Goth, I'm a redneck, I don't have tattoo's and I keep my boobs holstered! I think you need to take pictures of this stuff!

Going to the fair is as bad as going to the car races. In July we went to race in Nebraska. I was at the pit shack paying my entry fee when I turn around and this chick has her boobs right in my face. I have to admit they were very nice boobs and Bob was tattooed on the right one. All I could do was stare with my jaw to the floor. I wanted to ask why even wear a shirt if those babies are just out there for all to see. Of course my husband and his two friends were drooling.

We jsut acquired three new bunnies. Sigh. BUt I swear I will never paint their toenails or anything!!!
Shoot they'll be lucky if I pick them up. They belong to the hubs and the kid.
And I agree the people at fairs with bunnies ARE freaks. We had the same type of tent at our fair and those people freak the crap out of me.

It's obvious that the first rabbit with the red eyes is a reincarnate of the rabbit on Monty Python.

vic said...

Is it just me or is there something wrong with that first rabbit - like a very long tail?

caramama said...

I'm LOLing at spammon! Bonus points for the Monty Python reference!

I've always wanted a bunny, but not in a goth make-up, show off my melons kind of way. Just cause they are cute. But we have a beagle. You know, the dog breed to hunt rabbits. So, that's not going to work.

The last one looks like someone just threw a stuffed animal rabbit in a cage.

I was hoping for pictures of the freaky people!

jessica said...

at least it didn't reek like the pig barn, no? that last one isn't real is it!

Tammy and Parker said...

This post has left me with a very disturbing mental image. I hope it washes out, lol.

LaskiGal said...

The white one looks like it has Goth eyeliner . . . weird.

Allison Says said...

I'm so glad you didn't post a picture of Watermelon boobs...

I agree that the white bunny looks like it's wearing a ton of eyeliner. Kinda creepy, actually.

My oldest's son's dad was a rabbit man, but he raised Californians to eat. Yuchk! Talk about nasty. I was given a rabbit as a mother's day presant, just to find out I was allergic to rabbits. I do agree that rabbit folk are strange. Very very carney like!!

mommaof4wife2r said...

people need more to do if they have time to paint toe nails on a rabbit! they could stop by here...there are lots of kids to feed and laundry to do! :)

Susan said...

I just keep thinking of the rabbit lady from Roger Moore's film years ago about the demise of Flint, MI and GM -- Roger and Me, right?

Anyway, she kind of fits your description. Funny (in a not so funny way) when she asked him if he wanted one of her rabbits for a pet or for meat. It didn't seem to matter to her much either way.

My sister just bought my niece a bunny for her birthday. It is so cute!

Ok, this is perfect for me as we're going to the State Fair tomorrow and the animals will definitely be front and center for us. I'm SO checking out the nails on every rabbit I see. Wish me luck!

Becoming Mommy said...

This makes me glad we didn't go to our fair this year.

Hubby wanted to go desperately and enter our dogs into the dog show (they had one for altered). I mean, if nothing else, the Hound should win BiB for being the only entrant, right? And Kerrygirl would probably show well too, unless the judge was ye olde type who still think Taestas Mor and sparring are good.

I was too tired and Sasha too crabby so we didn't.

I didn't even consider rabbits and the livestock!!! The Hound in a place of corralled animals is a recipe for disaster!!!

1. the bunnies are cute, even if their owners/breeders/handler are not
2. bring the Holy Handgrenade of Antioch next time in order to deal with those weirdos. According to Monty Python you should be able to smite thine foe into little pieces.
3. nobody is weirder than the stallion stud owner I met at the county fair back in high school...horse had his man-business fully exposed and the owner was more than excited to tell my brother and I about the stallion's exploits and conquests and need for lady company and this man was soooooo excited that I was afraid to let my eyes wander any lower on him than his chin.
