oh, my gosh, what a giggle you left me with! And I never saw it coming. It's a well written suspenseful child's fable in an armchair, story telling guise. Loved it.

That was excellent! What a fabulous story for the contest. I laughed when they saw what it was Buzz was cooking, serves them right. Perhaps they'll make their own meals in future. I loved the moral! Well done and good luck in the contest. :) Sandra xxx

This is hilarious. Backbiting and front-biting included. But then, I live with a near-vegetarian and a near-all-meat-eater. There is some great alliteration in this paragraph: Cathy suggested he fix a carrot casserole. Felicia was a fitness freak, so she asked Buzz to serve a salad of mixed greens. Chloe commented that celery soup would be good. Bianca started badgering Buzz by yelling vegetarian suggestions from her armchair.
Can bunnies beaver? Can bunnies badger? Can bunnies swoon to the sweltering smell of a tell-tale steak on a dinner break? Yes, they can.

This one is funny from the beginning to the story to the end and the moral is a pun. I'm not sure if this is what they are looking for in this contest but it is certainly good for a laugh.

    I'm pleased my story entertained you, Beth. The concept of a 'moral' is rather fuzzy for a story, so i wrote about fuzzy bunnies and based my closing line on a well-known phrase.

This is a cute entry for the Write A Modern Fable writing contest with a twist for the moral of the story. It should do well in the contest. Good luck luck.

Well, that certainly took the scenic route. I am impressed by your inside information straight from the warren. Beavering? Badgering? Who knew?
Bunnies are much more versatile than I ever imagined.
Best of luck with the voters.

Peace, Lee

    Yeah... I guess the first half of my story is unnecessary, but I had fun writing it. Thanks for reviewing.

I shan't pass this one on to my granddaughter. She and her mum are avid vegans, which is a shame, as I raise beef cattle and am on Buzz's side. I enjoyed your badgering and beavering bunnies. It sounds as if they were a bit lucky not to end up in the stew themselves.

    Are your vegans skinny? I've never met a robust vegan. Rabbit stew is very nice - I wish we made better use of the pests. (Although i do like a pet bunny - i had a couple when i was a child.)

    The people who serve in Health Food shops are a great advertisement for the benefits of eating meat. They all seem to be vegetarian pasties.
    My daughter and granddaughter, however, always look revoltingly healthy. I think they must cheat a little when my back is turned.

Excellent! You have really written a modern fable; it was humorous and a pleasant read; Bunny had a leading role in vegetarianism, shown a good moral; well said, well done; thanks for sharing this; keep posting. Good luck. ALCREATOR
Inexpressiveness:
(Can bunnies 'beaver'? These could.)

Oh wow! You wrote a great modern fable, and being a vegetarian myself, I can appreciate the bunnies' aghast-ness! I can so see my husband telling me that moral:) EXCELLENT entry for the fable contest. Best of luck (although you do not need any luck). It made me smile:)
