Some Bastard Stepped On & Squished This Adorable Baby Rabbit

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]

We’re thinking frozen margaritas with no salt, please.  Grab a pack of 20 Jonathan Adler cocktail napkins — they come in pink for  margaritas, blue for martinis and green for scotch — and you’ll be the hostess with the mostest all summer long.

  • Jon Hamm is backpedaling from his comments last week about Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian in which he remarked “being a f**king idiot is a valuable commodity in this culture because you’re rewarded significantly.” Kimmy fired back over Twitter, calling him “careless,” and now Jon, somewhat naively told E! that “It’s surprising to me that it has become remotely a story.” (Really?) He continued, “I don’t know Ms. Kardashian, I know her public persona. What I said was meant to be more on pervasiveness of something in our culture, not personal, but she took offense to it and that is her right.” [PopBytes]

Today’s Lady News: You’d Have To Prove You Use Birth Control For “Health Reasons” Under Proposed AZ Law

  • Arizona’s State Senate Judiciary Committee advanced a bill yesterday that would give your boss the right to make you prove that your prescription birth control is being used for health reasons — and not for being a slutty-slut-slut having sex for her own pleasure. Your boss could also fire you for using birth control to be a slutty-slut-slut, because AZ is an at-will employment state. It might be time to move to Canada. [Huffington PostJezebel]
  • The Health and Human Services Department ended Title X funding to the Medicaid Women’s Health Program in Texas today after the state recently voted to stop accepting money from “affiliates of abortion providers.” This is all part of Texas’s larger plan to block any funding at all from going to abortion providers.

Mitt Romney must think low-income women don’t really need breast exams. And those Pap smears that could detect cervical cancer? So frivolous! Surely that’s the only thing the GOP frontrunner could have meant when he told folks in Missouri he would “get rid of” Planned Parenthood, as well as a number of other programs, to reduce the debt. “The test is pretty simple. Is the program so critical, it’s worth borrowing money from China to pay for it?” Romney said. “And on that basis of course you get rid of Obamacare, that’s the easy one. Planned Parenthood, we’re going to get rid of that. The subsidy for Amtrak, I’d eliminate that. The National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities.” Keep reading »
