    Question...

    How were the rabbits penises damaged?

    Is it just me

    Who is anticipating a new flood of porn stars with surgically augmented penii (?) which are SO long they're wrapped from their torso to their feet and could harpoon a whale without leaving their cabin?

"Breeding like rabbits" would take on a whole new meaning.

    My thoughts exactly.... you just know that it's only a matter of time before the v14GRA spammers learn of this and start marketing it. Closely followed by it being used to spread malware.
