[Tidbits] Rabbit


You know that old thing about carrying a rabbit’s foot in order to
ensure good luck? Yeah… well… it ain’t so simple. There are
certain parameters to be followed… and if they’re not… the
likelihood of your rabbit’s foot being effective are rather slim to

But there’s help folks. I am here to guide you along the proper path
in order to make sure lady luck follows you around for the rest of
your natural born days. There are only two actions to follow… and
follow these… and you will be blessed. Number one. You have to have
the left foot of the beastie. They don’t say left fore or left hind
… so I suggest you carry around one of each. And… most
important… the rabbit that has been slain in order to acquire his
appendage… has to have been killed by a cross-eyed person during a
full moon. For those who might find this last rule a bit difficult to
adhere to… I can only apologize for your difficulties… there’s no
help for it… rules is rules.

However… here’s the plus side of it all. It might pay to own a
small rabbit farm… for aside from its paws… and the delicious
flesh which can be ingested with gusto… the fact of it all is that
rabbits are a symbol of prosperity. (Think of all the rabbit’s paws
you are going to sell.) As an aside … I have to ask you… is there
another creature on this earth --other than humans–who will kill his
fellow creatures in order to carry around a body part for good luck?
By golly we are a creative bunch… are we not?

I’ll tell you something else… and this is directed mostly to those
of you who own boats. Seamen never say the word “rabbit” before going
on board a ship. Should you find yourselves one day boarding your
favorite seagoing vessel and suddenly it comes upon you to say that
word… may I suggest you find another one instead. Take heed my
friends… this is serious stuff.

And then comes the day when you fall in love. Ahh… to but see the
object of your affections while you dream. Another conundrum of life
to thwart a lover’s mind. But there’s help around the corner. Yes
there is. Take the blade bone of a rabbit… stick nine pins into it
… and put it under your pillow. That night you will dream of your
loved one. A word of caution though. Please be sure to use a rather
plump pillow… for if you are a rough sleeper… and you are one of
those who in their sleep bang their pillows about for softer
consistency… you may well end up waking abruptly and in deep pain.

There’s more but I shall end it now… for Tidbits is a rather short
little thing… and I don’t want to bore. Rather… I will show you
an image of joyous little hare with chiseled gold fur and emerald
eyes and a ruby nose and diamond teeth. I don’t know his value… I
know not his karat. But he is a cute little devil… er… rabbit.

For those of you who are new to this thing called Tidbits…may I
direct you to my home page at where you will
scroll down the left side menu till you get to the area that says
Current Tidbits… and then click on it in order to view an image of
a joyfully dancing hare.

And there ya have it.
That’s it for this week folks.
Catch you all next week.
