  • Alabama Democratic Party Submits Different Obama Birth Certificate In Ballot Challenge Appeal

    In a unusual rare move, the Alabama Democratic Party has submitted a amicus brief in the McInnish Goode v Chapman Appeal case.

Another worry for them is another justice named Tom Parker.

    Meet the world's biggest Easter bunny, Darius the enormous Continental Giant, who weighs a whopping three-and-a-half stone and is 4ft 4in.

He already held the title of world's biggest rabbit but has now smashed his own record after vets measured him a month ago and realised he had had grown another inch. It is a double celebration for Darius who shares his birthday, on Easter Sunday, with his beloved owner Annette Edwards. Ms Edwards, from Worcester, has bred...

    Unlike the latest television perversion entitled, The Playboy Club,  I can actually tell you the truth about being a Bunny and working in the Chicago Playboy Club in the 60s. If you're wondering why I bring this up 45 years after the fact, it's simple.  One of my readers took exception with my article on GOP presidential candidate Richard Perry, and decided to go after the messenger rather than the message.   I find it humorous that anyone would think exposing me as a Playboy Bunny in my youth should affect what readers think of my research and articles today.  Apparently...

The only-in-San Francisco legislation those at Fox News love to rip us for lives on, thanks to the city's lesser known but always creative commissions. The latest example is the Commission on the Status of Women's resolution demanding that NBC cancel its new TV show "The Playboy Club" and replace it with a show that "depicts women's substantive achievements." Set in 1960s Chicago, the show follows the mobsters and bunnies who, um, intermingled at Hugh Hefner's famed...

Police warned Idaho Falls resident William Falkingham after a woman said she saw him dressed in the costume, peeking at her young son from behind a tree and pointing his finger like a gun, according to a police report. An investigation of the sighting led officers to question other neighbors, "who expressed that they were greatly disturbed by Falkingham and his bunny suit," the report said....

    As China gears up for the Year of the Rabbit, the nation's Communist authorities have censored a bunny cartoon with political overtones. The Chinese New Year - which falls this year on February 3 - is the country's biggest holiday. Families come together for several days of feasting and gift-giving. But, this year, a New Year-themed cartoon posted on a popular Chinese website seems to have rankled officials. Censors have deleted the video, in an apparent reaction to its biting political satire. The three-minute animation begins with rabbit babies being poisoned, a blatant reference to a recent toxic milk scandal...

The racing greyhound was coming a respectable third at the track in Shepperton, Victoria, when she was suddenly confronted with two hares to chase. Spectators were just as confused as the wild hare ran across the track, straight into the path of a thundering pack of eight greyhounds trained to chase him down. The rest of the dogs continued to chase the fake but Jinny Lou -showing a taste for reality over fantasy - veered off...

Darius, pictured with six-year-old Georgia Hadley, is only just over 12 months old and breeder Annette Edwards expects him to keep adding to his 3st 7lb bulk for at least another six months. That's good news for her greengrocer in Worcester because he already eats 12 carrots, six apples and two cabbages a day.

    There are lots of well known facts about the Easter Bunny. For instance, we know it was in Germany that the Easter Bunny (originally the Easter Hare) was first associated with the holiday. We also know that 18th century German settlers in America started the tradition of creating bright and colorful "nests" into which the giant cottontail would place colored eggs. Those nests evolved into our modern day Easter baskets that overflow with candy and other surprises on Easter morning. Less well known is the political affiliation of the Easter Bunny but we do have three clear signs that he...

Thanksgiving, being largely a continuation of post-harvest feasts in Europe, has always been about eating. We have, of course, taken this to ridiculous extremes with turducken, a Thanksgiving dish prepared by… …cramming a boneless chicken into a boneless duck, which is stuffed into a boneless turkey.

President Carter was forced to swat at the vicious beast with a canoe paddle, which apparently scared it off. Upon his return to the White House, Carter told his staff about the furry amphibian's assault. Most of them refused to believe him, insisting that rabbits can't swim (although since most mammals can swim, there's no reason to believe that rabbits...

    LONDON (AFP) - In a tale reminiscent of the last Wallace and Gromit movie, furious villagers in northeast England have hired armed guards to protect their beloved communal vegetable gardens from a suspected monster rabbit. Leeks, Japanese onions, parsnips and spring carrots have all been ripped up and devoured by the mystery were-rabbit -- prompting the 12 allotment holders in Felton, north of Newcastle, to hire two marksmen with air rifles and orders to shoot to kill. "It is a massive thing. It is a monster. The first time I saw it, I said: 'What the hell is that?'" the...

    The PC movement has run amok and is now infecting NH. The town of Milford won't use the term "Easter" for the Easter egg hunt, and have chosen the term "annual spring egg hunt"... The highlights: Easter eggs? Not in Milford Rec commission's hunt will bear secular name 'spring' By Daymond Steer - Cabinet staff The Cabinet - April 6, 2006 MILFORD — Conventional wisdom says if it hops like a bunny, it’s probably a bunny, but the town’s Recreation Department has decided that when it invites children to collect brightly colored plastic eggs the day before Easter, the event...

    Marshmallow Peeps, the popular Easter candy made of sugar, corn syrup and gelatin, have become a new symbol of protest in St. Paul these days. The "Vision of Peace," a 36-foot, 60-ton onyx City Hall statue of American Indians, has become the stage for a peculiar form of civil discourse. Since last week's decision to kick the Easter Bunny out of a City Council office, a handful of employees have ringed the statue with the spongy chick- and rabbit-shaped candies. Two laminated signs even announce the statue's temporary new moniker — "Vision of Peeps."

    March 25, 2006 -- Here's the opening sentence from the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star-Tribune: ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A small Easter display was removed from the City Hall lobby on Wednesday out of concern that it would offend non-Christians. The story went on to explain that a secretary decorates her area, which is apparently near or in the office lobby, for each holiday. This time it was "a cloth Easter bunny, pastel-colored eggs and a sign which said 'Happy Easter.'" This, apparently, enraged the city's human rights director because it negated, damaged or threatened somebody's human rights. This tower of...

    March 3, 2006 Berkeley, California This week we made real progress in the war against hunting. It all started with my offhand remark to some Bambi-killing Neanderthal that I'd consider hunting to be a sport when the prey is also armed. Scooter overheard this and paid a visit to a friend who designs human prosthetics and had him adapt a brain-triggered mechanism that could be linked with a firearm, and voila, the Hunter-B-Gon(TM) was born! Just like the prosthetic hand that grips when signaled by the brain, this trigger mechanism is activated by a small probe in the part of...

    On one of the Muhammad cartoon threads, someone posted a variation on the "I don't know what you're talking about, so here's a bunny with a (blank) on its head." Instead of the popular pancake, it had an image of one of the Muhammad cartoons on its head. Does anyone know where I can find it?

    A large and unusually bold hare was apparently so irritated when a dogsled team entered its territory that it went on the attack, in an otherwise peaceful forested area of northern Norway. Wenche Offerdal, who was driving the dogsled team in the Reisadalen area of Troms County, had never seen anything like it. She told newspaper Nordlys that she and her team of huskies met the hare while travelling between Saraelv and Seima Saturday evening. The hare appeared fully grown and quite aggressive.
