A rabbit one day managed to break free from the laboratory where he
had been born and
brought up. As he scurried away from the fencing of the compound, he
felt grass under his
little feet and saw the dawn breaking for the first time in his life.
'Wow, this is great,' he
thought. It wasn't long before he came to a hedge and, after squeezing
under it he saw a
wonderful sight lots of other bunny rabbits, all free and nibbling at
the lush grass.
'Hey,' he called. 'I'm a rabbit from the laboratory and I've just
escaped. Are you wild
'Yes. Come and join us,' they cried.
Our friend hopped over to them and started eating the grass. It tasted
so good. 'What else
do you wild rabbits do?' he asked.
'Well,' one of them said. 'You see that field there? It's got carrots
growing in it. We dig
them up and eat them.'
This, he couldn't resist and he spent the next hour eating the most
succulent carrots. They
Later, he asked them again, 'What else do you do?'
'You see that field there? It's got lettuce growing in it. We eat them
The lettuce tasted just as good and he returned a while later
completely full. 'Is there
anything else you guys do?' he asked.
One of the other rabbits came a bit closer to him and spoke softly.
'There's one other thing
you must try. You see those rabbits there,' he said, pointing to the
far corner of the field.
'They're girls. We %#&* them. Go and try it.'
Well, our friend spent the rest of the morning screwing his little
heart out until, completely
knackered, he staggered back over to the guys.
'That was fantastic,' he panted.
'So are you going to live with us then?' one of them asked.
'I'm sorry, I had a great time but I can't.'
The wild rabbits all stared at him, a bit surprised. 'Why? We thought
you liked it here.'
'I do,' our friend replied. 'But I must get back to the laboratory.
I'm dying for a cigarette.'
