Write five sentences rabbit

“One, two, three, four, five, six leetle rabbits!” said Mr. McGregor.

“One, two, three, four, five, six leetle fat rabbits!” repeated Mr. McGregor, counting on his fingers — “one, two, three—”

“One, two, three, four! five! six leetle rabbits!” said he as he dropped them into his sack.

“One, two — only three sentences about rabbits!” said the homework-seeker, feeling slightly cheated.

“In the sack! one, two, three, four, five, six!” replied Mr. McGregor.

[Ever since I posted a commentary on five sentences from Charles Dickens’s Bleak House, Internauts searching for five sentences (that is, their homework) have been ending up at Orange Crate Art. Write five sentences rabbit is the latest such search. This post is rated “R” for rabbits. With apologies to Beatrix Potter and the Flopsy Bunnies.]

Other “five sentences” posts
Bleak House : The cat : Clothes : The driver : Life : Life on the moon : The past (1) : The past (2) : The ship : Smoking : The telephone

Avoid Updike's Rabbit.

This is the Year of the Rabbit in the Chinese Zodiac.

Rabbits are not the mild-mannered creatures that they may seem; they have teeth and claws, and they're not afraid to use them.

A rabbit's response to threat may be freezing and flattening its body against the ground; a hunter finds this helpful.

In terms of sheer charm, wild rabbit babies have no peers.

(Civet de Lapin is a good dish.)

Elaine, I think you might have just done someone’s homework, though I’m not sure how a kid would explain “Updike.” :)

LOL! Yeah, in the Era of Everyone's Knowing About Everything, there are a lot of unsafe words...
