German eugenics and North Korean communism 

There is no more horrifying combination.

*Whew* Rabbits. For a moment there, I was thinking of Giant Radioactive Hamsters from a Planet Near Mars. I must be listening to too much Weird Al :)

This is a pretty weird story on a lot of levels (the most obvious being the utter ridiculousness of attempting to feed a starving country that has no infrastructure with gigantic rabbits), but calling whatever breeding technique this guy used "German eugenics" is rank provocation. When someone in America breeds a bigger fatter cow or a pig that gets a blue ribbon at a fair, it's good ol' fashioned American ingenuity and work ethic at play. If someone in Germany does it, it's eugenics?

Then again, maybe my sense of humor is just deficient today.

Uh, eugenics refers to 'engineering' the human genome.

This is just some exaggerated example of animal husbandry. But phrizz, I do think your humor is a little deficient today.

But DEC's humor isn't.

Maybe the giant rabbits are being prepared to attack the US Navy fast attack sub "Jimmy Carter". And that's my sense of humor today.

OK, so I stretched the meaning of the word "eugenics" (which eventually came to apply only to humans) and unfairly picked on the Germans. Surely one is allowed to have a little fun with a story like this.

They have a old movie NIGHT OF THE LEPUS about giant rabbit hopping about the countryside eating people till their lured onto a electified railroad track and fried a real turkey

I found this quite amusing. Lets just not tell Peter Cottontail what is going on, otherwise he might end up on someones dinner table instead of a kids tale. Ha!
