Snapped at your roommate this morning? Cut someone off in traffic? At least you don’t feel as bad as the cameraman who stepped on and squished to death this adorable earless baby bunny right before he was to be presented to the world in a press conference.
Til the 17-day-old bunny was enjoying the high life at a German zoo, where he attracted fans both for a genetic defect that made him without ears but also for his sheer adorableness. I mean, look at that face. But it all came to an abrupt end earlier today. The no-doubt camera shy rabbit buried himself in a pile of hay, a newspaper cameraman stepped backward into it, and bada bing, bada boom, that press conference had to be cancelled. “It was a direct hit,” said the zoo director, which I vote should be a contender for Best Quotes of 2012.
Such a shame. Til could have been the new Knut, the new Bubbles, the new Boo … the new Kim Kardashian. [AP]
