After reading of the dangers of eating rabbits because of tularemia my mind went directly back to childhood and Bug's Bunny Cartoon and they were are always trying to cook him either Elmer Fudd, the Shipwreck to guys, etc etc. One thing that I do not know til this day is what in the hell is harse n feather (that is how I remebered it pronounced as a kid around 5-6 years old)or how every you spell it I remeber a couple of episodes where they were going to prepare him into harsen feather What dish is this it is going to drive me mad until I fins out what it is really called. Does anyone else remeber this? Obvious it is too late in the evening for me to start to think about old bug's bunny cartoons
