I went to the Anzac Day game at the MCG last Thursday and before the game something I saw really bewildered me. No, I didn't see a Collingwood supporter with teeth. Just outside of the Punt Road Oval I saw a man with a rabbit on his shoulder.
The people in the group and I looked at each other in amazement and I could tell we were all thinking the same thing. "Are we actually seeing this?" I could understand if he had a top hat and a cape as well. Ok that explains it, he pulled a rabbit out of his hat. He's a magician. Even if he had a parrot on his shoulder and an eye patch, fair enough. He's a pirate. But this guy had a rabbit on his shoulder and was wearing a comouflage t-shirt, like no one was meant to see him.
As he walked towards me I thought I can't let this slide because this will haunt me later in life if I don't get an explanation. So as he approached, I said "What's the go with the rabbit mate?"
He gives me this look, like I'm the strange one and keeps walking. The group I was with started laughing and I thought, "Did I just get burned by a man with a rabbit on his shoulder?"
As if he was walking away patting his rabbit saying, "What was that weirdo's problem Fluffy"
