Via Professor Tim, a story that's so much like my dreams it's scary:
An enormous pink bunny has been erected on an Italian mountainside where it will stay for the next 20 years.

The 200-foot-long toy rabbit lies on the side of the 5,000 foot high Colletto Fava mountain in northern Italy's Piedmont region.

Viennese art group Gelatin designed the giant soft toy and say it was "knitted by dozens of grannies out of pink wool".

Group member Wolfgang Gantner said: "It's supposed to make you feel small, like Gulliver. You walk around it and you can't help but smile."

And Gelatin members say the bunny is not just for walking around - they are expecting hikers to climb its 20 foot sides and relax on its belly.

The giant rabbit is expected to remain on the mountain side until 2025.

As much as I wholeheartedly support the erection of giant pink bunnies wherever, whenever, I must admit to being troubled by this giant pink bunny's inappropriately seductive pose. We must protect the children.

Also, does the U.S. have any giant pink bunnies? We can't allow a giant pink bunny gap.
