Ogre Gunner sends this very dorky video.

It looks funny. I don't know if it is funny, because my f'n' computer won't play sound with most online videos.

Craig sends this story of an Eastern bunny gone bad. A 6-foot-2-inch, 280 man dressed as the Easter Bunny for a mall photo shoot got into a brawl with at least one woman, punching her in the back of the neck (a rabbit punch, the article notes).

McClure denied he punched the woman when he was contacted by a reporter from news-press.com Monday. He said he was trying to split up two women who were fighting, including his wife, exhibit manager Crystal Frechette. There was no way, McClure said, to satisfy the long line of people who wanted their children’s picture taken as the exhibit was preparing close. McClure said he was hot and couldn’t stand being in the bunny costume any longer.

“My shirt was soaked with sweat,” McClure said. “I almost threw up.”

The melee shocked customers, mall employees and the company who hired McClure and Frechette. Mall management issued an apology to parents and children.

More proof that the Easter Bunny Hates You.

Craig also sends this hard-hitting investigative report on what, precisely, causes Girls to Go Wild. Specifically, why are women suddenly so eager to flash their boobs at the drop of a hat?

While most commentators disparaged the breast baring as the antics of drunken, foolish women, new research concludes it was motivated by a complex set of factors, including a desire to celebrate [sports teams'] victories, a desire to break the rules, feelings of stardom and a sense of history.

Yes... a complex set of factors. Possibly an interaction between various environmental inputs and a good dose of alcohol, or, as I call it, liquid strumpet.

"The context was so important," said Mary Valentich, professor emeritus of social work at the University of Calgary. "You just wouldn't necessarily do this elsewhere. It had to be the right kind of setting."


Indeed, breast baring has increased of late, including at sports events and concerts, partly due to relaxed societal attitudes on nudity, said Edward Herold, a professor emeritus at the University of Guelph who studies human sexuality.

"It happens with a certain degree of regularity now at certain events," he said. "Some women today are more likely to have this sense of freedom."

Shockingly, the words "empower" or "empowering" are not mentioned in the article at all.

I've conducted my own research into this phenomenon. I'm currently shopping around a paper to all the major behavioral science journals, titled Why Do Women Bare Their Breasts? New Evidence Points To "Dirty, Dirty Whore" Gene.

I'm hoping for a MacArthur Genius grant.
