Rabbit Attack Day

At first that I thought this was pure joke, perhaps a parody of some kind. A made up incident; nothing that bizarre could be true.

Then it occurred to me that it might be a reference of some kind. Some sort of strange geek culture thing. So I googled it, and discovered something both deeply disturbing and incredibly amusing.

It actually happened.

On April 20, 1979, the President of the United States was attacked by a giant swimming rabbit.

It ought to be a holiday.


  1. Dude... Jimmy Carter was attacked by a giant swimming swamp rabbit? That put's George W. Bush's choking on a pretzel story to shame. Though I suppose the pretzel was Bush's fault, and the rabbit probably wasn't Carter's fault.

  2. And immediately, my first thought was, 'Monty Python!'
