    Do the feets on the outside count as breaking the fourth wall?

    Or is breaking the fourth wall how the feets got on the outside in the first place? Bunnies do kick, don’t they? 🐰

    Remind me of a story I was told that when I was 2 and my mom caught me trying to pull the TV away from the wall to let out some animals from a nature show that I thought were trapped inside the TV.

      I’m betraying my age, but I did the same thing with the radio, looking for the little people inside. Not altruistic, like you, but bamboozled. Once, I was on the radio and my boyfriend was home with our dog and the dog had a similar reaction on hearing my voice.

        I think these kind of stories apply only to us baby boomers, TV and radios today are to small for children to think people are trapped inside and anyway the kids are born knowing technology πŸ˜€

          So true. I’ll never forget how in 1991 a friend showed me what her 2-year-old son could do as he clambered up on his high chair to sit at his own Mac next to Daddy’s and said, “Boot UP!”

          Little did I realize I was looking at the future….

            I was at the Franklin Institute for their exhibit on Pompeii a couple years ago(?) and there was a couple with two toddlers in a stroller (I think they were twins, about 2 years old)…each of them playing some sort of game on one of the parents’ cell phones to keep them busy.

    Aww, so sweet, a bonded pair. That looks like a footstool/ottoman, that have the sides cut out? Makes a good hiding spot.

    Does having extra long ears mean better signal reception, like hi-def?

        Remember rabbit ears on top of television sets?

        • allein April 17, 2016 / 5:51 pm

          I don’t believe I’ve ever owned a TV with them, but I have seen them. I did have radios with pull-out antennas (still have one that I got when I was in college; it’s the only thing that still works on it. The tape decks started eating tapes fairly early and the CD player stopped working a few years ago. Now it sits in my spare room and I don’t know what to do with it).

            re: radios, I’m talking about a big ol’ wooden box full of vacuum tubes and heaven knows what else!πŸ˜‹

            As far as what to do with old electronics, some communities have electronic recycling once or twice a year.

          We had several TVs with rabbit ears as my dad didn’t succumb to cable until the late 80s. Shoot, we didn’t have a VCR until 1983! (My dad has been into the latest technology now in his 70s more than he ever was in his 40s and 50s!)

          • Ms Can Opener April 18, 2016 / 12:00 am

            My Dad was a conspicuous consumer of the newest electronics in the 70’s and bought a dish that was twice as tall as the house. For about a year, he got all the HBO’s for free, and stations from Quebec in french which he couldn’t understand. Of course, he couldn’t run the VCR and I had to help with that.

            The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. I have all the regular stuff and worked with computers all my life, except no cell phone. I can’t operate them, even to just make a call. Dinosaur, you say?

          I grew up with black and white rabbit ears tvs. Had them until 1980s. Thusly, I love cable. I never complain about the cost. Just plug me in. I’m a happy customer. I love the idea I can watch tv during blizzards and hurricanes as long as the electric stays on. Cable. Color. DVR. Binge watching. On demand… You youngsters have no idea what it was like to miss an episode of your favorite show and have to wait for the rerun!!

          • Faye April 17, 2016 / 6:54 pm

            In fact I watched From Hare To Eternity with Burt Lancaster and Debra Kerr’s big smooch in the thrashing ocean waves on a black and white tv as a youngster. I was probably 11 years old and even I knew that scene was hot but not what the waves meant. Lol.

            We only had ONE TV, and if there was a conflict between the 3 siblings then we had to TAKE TURNS watching our preferred show every other week!! My younger brother and I had fights every week for a year when MacGyver (my fav) and some stupid karate show (his fav) came on at the same time! Fortunately for me, MacGyver continued on
            for umpteen seasons and the stupid karate show was cancelled after one. Ha! 😈 My brother STILL continues to mock and dis that show! For all the years MacGyver was on, whenever he’d sign my bday card, or send one with money in it, he’d write I was forbidden to spend any money on “MacGyver or Star Trek memorabilia”. πŸ˜‚ πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

              When I was just starting first grade I was hit by a car and my post hospital recovery involved a borrowed TV to keep me occupied. The TV was a big blonde wood 2 1/2 foot cube with a screen about 4″ across. A magnifying glass was affixed to the box so that you could actually see the image.

            I had an acquaintance who didn’t believe me when told a program shown in color, but recorded via a b&w TV, would appear in color if shown on a color TV.

            • Faye April 18, 2016 / 6:18 pm

              That is something I never thought about. But I get it.

              My childhood was diminished by black and white tv. I watched the Wizard Of Oz every year. But if you watch The Wizard Of Oz on a black and white tv you never realize that they filmed Kansas in black and white and Oz in color. It was as an adult that I got to see that magical transition.

              • Murray April 18, 2016 / 6:47 pm

                I saw WofOz in a movie theater when I was very young – scared the bejeebers out of me!

            • 6rabbits April 18, 2016 / 7:23 pm

              @Sumo-Mermaid–There’s a Calvin & Hobbes cartoon where the dad and Calvin are having a somewhat similar discussion but with photographs. It’s hysterical!

    D’aw! Such a sweet bun giving kisses! πŸ’• Recipient doesn’t appear too excited, though.

    • Murray April 17, 2016 / 9:14 pm

      Those half-closed eyes are the tip-off – that’s a very contented bun. Rabbits don’t have many facial expressions in their repertoire – Inthink that’s why there are so many photos of “disapproving rabbits”.
