Who is short, talks funny and is always huntin’ wabbits? Kim Jong-il, of course:

Karl Szmolinsky of  Eberswalde faces a grim Easter.

His gold medal pride,’ Robert der Grosse ‘, the largest rabbit in recorded Prussian history , is missing and believed dead in North Korea.

The 23 1/2 pound uberbunny was sent to Pyongyang last year along with 11 others “with the aim of setting up a breeding program to alleviate famine, “  only to end up on Dear Leader Kim Jong-il’s birthday banquet table on February 16th.

A commenter at Phyrangula pointed out that it was rather naive of Mr. Szmolinsky to think that his bunny’s would be put to good use. Philanthropy, good intentions and a kind heart will always put you in tyranny’s stew pot.
