Here, have a GIANT happy Easter

Old editorial, newly posted photo of a rabbit bigger than my dog from the Chicago Tribune. No extra commentary necessary...

Karl Szmolinsky, who raises a breed of rabbits called giant grays, shows Robert, an 8.5kg giant gray who is 74cm long and has ears 25.5cm long, in the backyard of his house in Eberswalde, Germany in 2006. Szmolinsky sold eight giant grays to a delegation from North Korea that wanted to raise the breed as a source of meat for the North Korean population. Szmolinsky said his rabbits reach a maximum weight of 10.5 kg (23.1lbs.).

A GIANT thank you to Mr. Ben Meyerson for passing this along to me. Now, how much would it cost to buy them all and put them in a nice, quite giant bunny farm?
