Dandy's Journal revisited

15 years ago today, the Bunny-Mint had been very busy.

This week's votes
Oct. 13th, 2004 at 12:56 PM

Well I left it as late as I could so that everybun would have a chance to vote. It all got a bit confused this week as buns were proposing ammendments all over the place, so to avoid confusion, and so everybun knows exactly what they voted for, I have decided not to count them. If anybun has a problem with this, they can raise it as a new vote for next week. There is one thing that troubles me though. It has been suggested that buns should get one vote per foot. Me and Flopsy Girl do not agree with this as it discriminates against 3 legged buns, so we will not be putting that to the vote no matter what anybun says.
Anyway, here are the results:-

1. From the Jersey Mob
No 2-foot should be allowed to hug us or to pick us up without permission.
7 votes for, and 1 vote against. So make sure that you make your 2-foots aware of the new rules. I suggest you bite them if they try to break the rules until they get the hint.

2. From the Gower Bunn Gang
No 2-foot is to be allowed to go out unless they leave food for us first.
8 votes for and none against, so if your 2-foots do this then they MUST be sent the the pub for punishment.

3. From Merridoe
No claw clipping is to be allowed as we need them for digging and destroying things
7 votes for and 1 vote against. If a 2-foot tries to clip your claws then bite them on the nose.

4. From Brambles Pack
As Hop now wears a red bandage, then Hop should be officially re-named "Santa's Little Helper"
7 votes for and 2 votes against. How do you like your new name Santa's little helper?

5. From Mayflower
Each and every bun should be allowed a vote. So far it seems that each group of buns has been getting together and voting just once.
6 votes for and none against, so from now on, each and every bun can vote. This will also mean of course that me and Flopsy Girl will start voting, as we have not voted so far as we believed that it should be all of you out there that made the decisions.

6. From Melster
Spirit buns should get 2 votes as they have lead two separate lives.
5 votes for and 2 against. This means that all spirit buns can vote twice, but as Melster has already pointed out, it may well be that the 2 votes cancel each other out if a spirit bun votes once as they would have done when they were alive, and for their second vote they have changed their opinion as they now think they know better now than they did before.

So there we have it, more good stuff from everybun. Don't forget, if you want to follow up on any of the failed amendments, you can raise them as something new to vote on for next week.
I'm going to start you all off though by developing an idea that came from Brambles Pack. Instead of giving spirit buns 2 votes, let them have their own say in things by taking a second look at all the things the rest of us are voting on. The 2-foots have a similar system, they call it an "upper chamber". Well anything they can do we can do better. As the Bunny-mint cardboard house has 2 floors, we'll call the top floor the Upperty eared chamber. I'll have a long talk with Flopsy Girl and we will make the proposal formally on Monday, along with anything new that anybun else suggests to vote on.

Elect-orial fraud
Dear buns,

It has come to my attention that Dandy bun may not be able to count the votes accurately. We therefore demand a recount. Even though this doesn't change any of the decisions made. Its the fine edge of the wedge and if Dandy continues to miss count then important issues ma be affected. Therefore I propose that we give a bun (volunteers please) to check the vote count and make sure Dandy isn't cheating.

Re: Elect-orial fraud
I did say that it had all been very confused didn't I? As you say yourself, you are not questioning any of the results, it's just that you have a problem with how I counted the votes. It's a good job I didn't have a go at you lot on how you tried to influence the vote by multiplying the number of your pack by the number of feet you have. I seem to remember that you were trying to vote something like 64 times!

As Pry-minister, I have a duty to see that everybun gets a fair say, and that nobun feels cheated. If on any occasion there is a close vote and anybun thinks I have counted wrong, then I will be happy to have a recount!

Re: Elect-orial fraud
Thump thump! Have you nothing better to do than redoing the Pry Ministers job? Tut tut.

Re: Elect-orial fraud
May I remind the thumper of house that as leader of the hop-I-sit-on my job is to complain about everything the pry-minister does...

Re: Elect-orial fraud
Okay, point taken! But it's my job to thump and I haven't had much chance to do it yet!

But doesn't an Upperty Eared Chamber discriminate against Lop Buns whose ears are down???

Oct. 13th, 2004 05:45 pm (local)
This is a good point merridoe especially as i have 2 lopped ears and casper has 1 (sometimes he has 2)

I think dandy is doing a much better job now than he was, and it isn't an easy job after all. If you want any help dandy we as the channel ministers would be more than happy to lend a paw.

Next week we would like to propose that if 2 foots do not want us to eat certain green things like poisonous plants they do not have them in our burrow!

Oct. 13th, 2004 08:50 pm (local)
I agree - there should be nothing in the burrow that could harm us! Actually, maybe we should ban all harmful stuff like Sharp Nives for 2foots since they can hurt themselves with them!

Oct. 13th, 2004 06:28 pm (local)
Not really as I would imagine that spirit buns can make their ears do anything they want them to

Re: Discrimination
But what if they want to have lop ears? Or what if they change the style of their ears from day to day? Maybe it could be the Long Eared Chamber? (Does anyone have short ears out there?)

No Discrimination
The way I see it is this. In the olden days any lop eared buns living in the wild were at a big disadvantage, not having full control of their ears to focus in on any noises etc. They would have relied on their up-eared friends and family to help them avoid danger etc. I also think lop ears are not very aerodynamic, so may have slowed down any running from danger too.

By calling it the Uppity Eared Chamber or similar (if we even decide to have one) we would merely be referring back to the past as a reminder of how far buns have come, that we can now live in safety and comfort whether we have up ears or down ears, four feet or three. We need to strive for the day when all buns have the same living standards. With the progress Bunny-mint is making I feel more optimistic about this than ever before.

(I speak as a bun with one lop ear and one in between - sometimes up, sometimes down as everybun can see from my picture, kindly posted on the hairy mobs website!)

Re: No Discrimination
Hear Hear

Even I am a spirit bun and I can bend my ears all shape and direction. If we keep discuss this uppi ear chamber than some day we will talk about size of the ear. I think we already talking about long or short ear. I am a dwarf bunny. Not that I think size matter. I have big SMALL ears.

Voting by foot or ear does not make sense. I propose each bunny need to register for just one vote! But spirit bun has 2 vote.

Re: No Discrimination
Maybe lop eared buns should be given a set of sticky up ears that they can wear in the uppity eared chamber.

Re: No Discrimination
Hi, Melster! I'm all for Equal Rights (and Lefts) for all Bunnies! But I think the name of something as important as a chamber should reflect this new equality thinking to look forward to the days when all buns are considered equal no matter what!

2nd proposal
We have a 2nd proposal for next week as well as the one about not leaving plants around we also propose that whenever the 2 foot visits the big super-mar-ket they must bring us back herbs especially basil each time, not just salad!
