Bunny Game

These two rabbits are playing a game in the backyard. Arbroath called it "opposite of leapfrog," and the video uploader called it the "bunny hop," and said he watched for several minutes before getting his phone to record it. A commenter thinks it's a mating dance. I wonder if they ever switch off and let the other bunny be "it"?  (via Arbroath)

9 Ways to Enjoy Cadbury Creme Eggs

Easter is the last of the "candy holidays" until Halloween, so you better make the most of it! A few candies have become traditional for Easter: chocolate rabbits, Peeps, and Cadbury Creme Eggs. The iconic chocolate-covered candy eggs have become so synonymous with Easter season that food artists have devised ways to recreate them at home, use them in recipes, or create dishes that taste like Cadbury eggs but resemble something else altogether. They range from the sublime to the ridiculous in this list I posted at mental_floss -you decide which is which.

IRS Apologizes for $60,000 Star Trek Parody

The Internal Revenue Service got chewed out by Congress for wasting taxpayer money on a couple of videos made for a training and leadership conference in 2010. One was a parody of Gilligan's Island, but most of the $60,000 spent was for a Star Trek parody that "does not appear to have any training value."
The production value is high even though the acting is what one might expect from a bunch of tax collectors. In the video, the spaceship is approaching the planet “Notax,” where alien identity theft appears to be a problem.

“The IRS recognizes and takes seriously our obligation to be good stewards of government resources and taxpayer dollars,” the agency said in a statement. “There is no mistaking that this video did not reflect the best stewardship of resources.”
Congressional investigators concluded that the Gilligan's Island parody video was a legitimate training tool. Although the $60,000 spent on the two videos is a pittance compared to, say, a day at war, we've posted much better parodies made for $500 or less. The IRS should consider looking to the YouTube community to produce future videos. Read more at the Washington Times.   (via Viral Viral Videos)
