Why is Anarchy Bunny a "stuffed lupine"??

Latin: lupus = Wolf; lepus = Hare

Also, how weird did it feel to write "Christopher"? :P

>.< Okay, this is why I shouldn't attempt to enter a constest at 4am. My brain was thinking en Français, and the French word for rabbit is lapin... very close to lupine. You're absolutely right, I'll fix that here.

And yes, it was strange to write my own proper name in a Haiku, but I prefer to live a bit vicariously through School Bites' Christopher since he's lucky enough to have someone like Cherri. ;)

I'm quite frankly amazed that my lazy POS got any votes, let alone three. :-o :D

I honestly thought Don's was better. Which is why I'm shocked. He managed to get three haiku and form them together into one poem. That's awesome.

And you're making me flail again.

Okay, kidding. ;) But thanks a million for the kind words. :)

Therefore, choose thee shiny title and name color!!

Remember, green is reserved for the Mods, and only Giz gets red. Everything else is available.

You could do me a huge favor if you actually found out the six-digit hex code for the color you want.
