Who is short, talks funny and is always huntin’ wabbits? Kim Jong-il, of course:
Karl Szmolinsky ofÂ 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, “Â 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.
