Who Sed Dat? Wabbit Edition

Today’s cover of the NY Times Dining section inspired me to this Special Edition of Who Sed Dat?

“There was an Old Person whose habits,
Induced him to feed upon Rabbits;
When he’d eaten eighteen,
he turned perfectly green,
Upon which he relinquished those habits.”

~Edward Lear

You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I’ll buy you a new car.

~Harvey Diamond

The first written record of the term Welsh rabbit: “I did not eat of cold beef, but of Welsh rabbit and stewed cheese.”
John Byron

What’s up, Doc?

~Bugs Bunny (Tex Avery)

Who Sed Dat? XIX

And I find chopsticks frankly distressing. Am I alone in thinking it odd that a people ingenious enough to invent paper, gunpowder, kites and any number of other useful objects, and who have a noble history extending back 3,000 years haven’t yet worked out that a pair of knitting needles is no way to capture food?

~Bill Bryson
