Default Special Article: Seasonality of auricular amputations in rabbits

I just came across this in my inbox. Although it is several weeks old, it is still seasonal, so I though I would share it.

Abstract

This retrospective observational analysis hypothesizes that an increase
occurs in online reports and images of auricular amputations of
confectionary rabbits during the spring. Using the online search engine
Google, online content and visual portrayals of confectionary rabbit
auricular amputations from 2012 to 2017 were identified and trended against
seasonal variations. To determine incidence, commercial availability of
chocolate rabbits in retail facilities were assayed. A statistically
significant increase in mention of rabbit auricular amputations occurred
during the spring. Mapping techniques showed the annual peak incidence for
2012 to 2017 to be near Easter for each year studied. Human adults and
children appear to be wholly responsible for the reports of rabbit
auricular amputations. Reconstructive techniques are dependent on the
percentage of auricular defect. Laryngoscope, 127:773–775, 2017

I'm an outlier - well, the bunnies I eat are - as I use the ears to hold 'em while I consume the rest of the thing first, leaving the ears for last.

Note: that's for the common "hollow bunny"; the very rare "solid bunny" succumbs to auricular amputation as that's the easiest way to begin to break it apart into manageable chunks. For the preparation/consumption pattern *I* use, anyways. Obviously, YMMV.

I skip the rabbit entirely and consume its legume and cacao ovum.
