It all started with a call for help from MountainMaggie. She had accidentally deleted her favorite hotlist item and was frantically trying to find it again:
[...] I accidentally deleted one of my hotlisted items and I haven't had any success relocating it. I'm hoping someone here might have come across it in their wanderings or in a category they are familiar with.
It's a Black and White print of someone in a rabbit suit walking up an interior flight of stairs. It was rather odd, but very intriguing.
I'm seriously obsessed with re-finding this print, so any help would be appreciated.
Fortunately, the print was located and MountainMaggie was very happy:
That's it!!! That's my weird bunny. I was so busy composing my sob story, I didn't know you had found it.
Thank you. Thank you, thank you. I'm re-hotlisting and bookmarking that critter.
How did you find it?
Now, I can resume obsessing about why I like it so much and wanting fiercely to buy it one day while being completely mortified with the thought the next.
Oh, my precious, precious human-sized bunny....
And this is where the story started unfolding... Now we were all wondering why that photo was so mesmerizing.
[...] it has a lot of story to it. Why is he dressed in a bunny suit? Why in a building that looks abandoned? His hand is on his knee... is he tired? Is he actually moving or resting? What does the graffiti say? Is that a can or a camera? ... ...
Oh, I hadn't even noticed the can, (camera?). That really amps the creepy/cool factor! That almost puts me over.
Where would I hang it and would anyone ever come to visit me again?
It's plenty creepy, but I can't look away![...]
[...] I'm trying to think of who I could get it for as a Christmas present, (to justify spending the $). It needs to be someone that would totally hate it, so that they would give it back to me as a birthday present, because I admired it sooo much every time I visited them and saw it on the wall, where they had quickly hung it up, when they heard I was coming to visit.
Then I could hang it in the room I secretly want for myself, but have to keep open for guests who usually stay too long!
Bad bunny thoughts, like that!
Sometimes it looks scary to me and I hope everyone upstairs has locked their doors. Other times it looks sad, like it just got off work after a long week of hiding eggs amongst dumpsters, bus benches and sign posts. Other times, I think it's the funniest Ithing that I've ever seen, for no reason whatsover.
Maybe he spray painted the door & then used the chair to hide the spray paint in the window sill and is slowly walking away from the scene chuckling to himself.....
OMG! I didn't even see the chair! This is getting more and more interesting!
::shiver:: The chair... The chair...... What if... the red paint is not paint, but... BLOOD! Creeeeeepy!
dun dun duuuuuuuuuuuuuu
Then we all hid under a blanket and tried to sleep without having nightmares :)
