Re: Swiss girl's bunnies found beheaded after Halloween

Their blood is supposed to give strength to the perpetrators of such acts

And I supposed the strength of a Rabbit is a must for occultists...

Re: Swiss girl's bunnies found beheaded after Halloween

Wow, featuring a self-declared "expert" on occultism too. I guess it was a slow newsday at The Lolcat, where folks must have been shocked, shocked, about the fate of the poor bunny.

It seems not everyone appreciates your subtle wit Adrian.

Am I the only one who feels sorry for the poor bunnies?

Satyr is an elusive beast and utterly lost on the local.

Maybe, but satire has nothing to do with Satyrs. The similarity of the words is merely coincidental.
