Default Teasing the pet

One of my pastimes is tempting SWMBO's pet rabbit with food I assume she won't like, sometimes I'm surprised by what she will/won't eat. She likes cookies and potato chips, Taco Bell cinnamin twists, pop tarts and jonses for bananas or peanut butter.

She abhors things with meat (like bacon or hamburger) and apparently anything with alcohol. Including homebrew, apfelwine and (just recently discovered) wiskey sours.

Maybe I should open this up for suggestions of what to attempt to feed our rabbit?

Any takers?

You know that bunny will die if you listen to us don't you?

That being said.

It seems salts and sweets are the furry little buggers favorites. I would start experimenting and seeing which one bunny likes better. Pringles or Lays? Doritos or Tostitos? Jif or Peter Pan?

If the guys firing muskets years ago would have known this, they could have saved huge bucks on lead shot by using constipated rabbit pellets instead...

I had a pet rabbit in college and it absolutely LOVED beer. She would knock over my bottles and/or cans and lap up whatever spilled out. And she was a beer snob, too! She loved my microbrews more than my Keystone Ice (watch those snob-comments - I prefaced this by saying I was in college). Nothing funnier than a drunk rabbit.

Our dog (a 10 pound shih-tzu), on the other hand, has a taste for Hops' cousin. I woke up one morning to find a plastic baggy from my pants pocket shredded all over the floor of our bedroom and down approximately 1 gram ($20 worth) of product. I was angry and ready to scold, but one look into my poor stoned dog's eyes let me know that she already realized she'd done a bad thing. Nothing more funny-pathetic (funthetic?) than a pet who's feeling bad about over-indulging. She was baked for a day and a half.

How would you ever know a rabbit was stoned? Wouldn't it be a little like watching mead ferment?

Oh man! FizzWiz (or it's competitor: Pop Rocks). That'll be a difficult suggestion to top!!!!

But I sorta wonder what would happen if you filled the rabbit's water bottle up with redbull.
