Global Warming?

With all those scientific reports saying that we are either heading into global warming or an ice age, I wonder where the following story falls?

In a tale reminiscent of the last Wallace and Gromit movie, furious villagers in northeast England have hired armed guards to protect their beloved communal vegetable gardens from a suspected monster rabbit.

Leeks, Japanese onions, parsnips and spring carrots have all been ripped up and devoured by the mystery were-rabbit -- prompting the 12 allotment holders in Felton, north of Newcastle, to hire two marksmen with air rifles and orders to shoot to kill.

"It is a massive thing. It is a monster. The first time I saw it, I said: 'What the hell is that?'" the Northumberland Gazette newspaper quoted local resident Jeff Smith, 63, as saying on its website (www.northumberlandtoday.co.uk).

He claims to have seen the black and brown rabbit -- with one ear bigger than the other -- about two months ago, and at least three fellow allotment holders say they have seen it as well.

"I have seen it and it is bigger than a normal rabbit. It's eating all our crops and we grow the best stuff here," said retired miner George Brown, 76, quoted by the domestic Press Association news agency.Yahoo

Since a giant mutant bunny rabbit is involved, I'm leaning toward the coming ice age theory. My reasoning is that if small animals are becoming larger, it can mean only one thing: their bodies are evolving in anticipation of the next ice age. This theory would also explain why my cats shedding has been increasing over the years, their winter coats are anticipating colder weather. What do you think?

Nah yer wrong. The bunny is becoming larger because the climate is warming. You see, it has longer to eat good stuff because good stuff grows better when it's warm, therefore the bunny is gorging itself.

patrick,

No. You're wrong. The basic question is, why is the bunny gorging itself? Preparation for a colder climate of course!

And let's not forget the kitty cats hair growing longer and thicker at the start of fall for the past several years.

Nope, yer wrong again, the bunny is gorging itself because bunnies are stupid. They will eat and eat and eat till their little noses are wiggling in dirt.

The usual order of things dictates that bunny will eat till the grass freezes then diet (or eat other stuff) till it thaws. If it don't thaw, bunny keeps eating.

While you guys are wondering why it is getting bigger you fail to realize they are going to kill the Easter Bunny. We ahve to stop this madness.

Cats (not being as stupid as bunnies) have an inbuilt "fur sprouting" thingy, which operates independent of the actual cat.

patrick,

Thanks for pointing out my theory in all it's glory. Since cats do have a built-in "fur sprouting" thingy that is independent of its actions, it just proves my point that they are evolving defenses for the coming ice age!
