Homo homini lepus
The other day I opened what turned out to be a Christmas present: an enormous rabbit-fur hat. Once I put it on, the cat ran from the room in terror. I'm concerned that there may soon be reports of a large homo lepus roaming the Roxbury green. As you can see above, even celebrities look bizarre while wearing one.
[The title above is a parody of a Roman proverb credited to Plautus, "homo homini lupus", or "man is a wolf to his fellow man". In my case, man is a rabbit [lepus] to his fellow man. Or maybe his cat. It's funnier if I don't have to explain it, isn't it?]
