The escaped rabbit


A rabbit one day managed to break free from the laboratory where he had 
been born and brought up. As he scurried away from the fencing of the 
compound, he felt grass under his little feet and saw the dawn breaking 
for the first time in his life. 

"Wow, this is great," he thought. 

It wasn't long before he came to a hedge and, after squeezing under it 
he saw a wonderful sight - lots of other bunny rabbits, all free and 
nibbling at the lush grass.

"Hey," he called. "I'm a rabbit from the laboratory and I've just
escaped. Are you wild rabbits?"

"Yes. Come and join us," they cried.

Our friend hopped over to them and started eating the grass. It tasted 
so good. "What else do you wild rabbits do?" he asked.

"Well," one of them said. "You see that field there? It's got carrots 
growing in it. We dig them up and eat them."

This he couldn't resist and he spent the next hour eating the most
succulent carrots. They were wonderful.

Later, he asked them again, "What else do you do?"

"You see that field there? It's got lettuce growing in it. We eat them 
as well."

The lettuce tasted just as good and he returned a while later completely 
full. "Is there anything else you guys do?" he asked. One of the other 
rabbits came a bit closer to him and spoke softly.

"There's one other thing you must try. You see those rabbits there?"
he said, pointing to the far corner of the field. "They're girls. We
shag them. Go and try it."

Well, our friend spent the rest of the morning screwing his little heart 
out until, completely knackered, he staggered back over to the guys.

"That was fantastic," he panted.

"So are you going to live with us then?" one of them asked.

"I'm sorry, I had a great time but I can't."

The wild rabbits all stared at him, a bit surprised. "Why? We thought 
you liked it here."

"I do," our friend replied. "But I must get back to the laboratory.
I'm dying for a cigarette."
