Tree huggers and animal lovers seem to have gotten the idea that Bambi is a nature documentary and never outgrew the idea. If breathing weren’t an autonomic function most of them would probably suffocate, not so much from forgetting to, but from not being able to figure out how.
Ref Bambi. I especially like the talking rabbits. I have some that gather on my lawn and just chat away all night long at the buffet I supply for them. Little sob’s.
