Hang on though. We're off to Portland to suss out some sculptures made in its world famous stone today. And locals there, rather than regarding rabbits as soft cuddly spiritual beings, see them as bringers of bad luck. This judgement seems a little harsh as it came about because of their habit of emerging in quarries just before rockfalls. How self protectionism can lead to such a bad name I don't really know. Anyway the proper grown up name for their breed cannot be uttered on the isle and even writing it is frowned upon. Synonyms though are acceptable. A special 'Curse of the Were-Bunny' advertising poster had to be produced for a hoarding there when the Wallace and Gromit film came out.
So love, peace and fluffy bunnies to you all. And I'll try not to spoil things by uttering the R-word at any time today!
