Bad Rabbits

1. Cabin Fever's fleeting shot of a man in a rabbit suit -- resembling Donnie Darko's creepy six-foot lepus -- reminds us these fuzzy guys are, in fact, harbingers of evil.

2. The most graphic on-screen attack involves the feral bunny in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

3. Though it's often fatal to humans and horses, rabbits are immune to the venom of the black widow spider.

4. African mythology warned that hares are tricksters -- a hard-learned lesson for Elmer Fudd. Nisha Gopalan
