Messrs. and Mesdames,

I, Chacha, would like to ask the community of Stack Overflow to acknowledge the following bunny as the official Stack Overflow bunny. This bunny has been responsible for many funny threads, and has been involved in countless efforts to bring laughter to the programming world.

There is no reasonable explanation for why this bunny should not be crowned the Stack Overflow bunny, as he bears a waffle on his head. Such a sign of excellency should not in any way be ignored, but instead recognized throughout the mighty Trilogy.

I give you the bunny:

THE bunny

(full size)

If anyone can see a reason that this bunny should not be granted the title Stack Overflow Bunny, speak now or forever hold your peace.

If not, may the unicorns across this land all acknowledge the greatness of this bunny, and may they forever live in harmony!

Update: After 17 hours of no objections, in the power vested in me by the ..... I hereby declare this bunny to be the Official Stack Overflow Bunny.

    @Justin: Truthfully, I've also always felt that way about this particular image, but every other Oolong image where he's balancing something looks totally fine. I guess there's just something about the shadows in this one that bug me. Apr 2, 2010 at 16:39
  • @gnovice I don't like the shadows, and where are his/her ears?

  • @RadekS Doesn't load for me either, but based on the file name I suspect it's this image: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Oolong_last_head_performance.jpg

    You missed half the salutation, @Pop.

  • That's odd. I wasn't even typing at the beginning. I must have hit CTRL + DEL by accident when the page loaded? Anyways, fixed. (@Grace) Okay, after replacing it, it's disappeared again. What is going on here? Can you try fixing it, @Grace? It seems to be stripping those first words out, for me.

    @Pop Oh, it was auto, not manual. Go fig, it's the new salutation stripper. I guess it does trigger on edit. In that case, it'll probably be wise just to remove the rest of the salutation.

  • Ah, another new feature that works on save but doesn't automatically go back and fix old posts. That makes sense. It's too timid to touch "Messrs." by itself, at least. (@Grace)

When you consider the original uncropped image, you can see that Oolong was fated to be the chosen SO bunny!

    Why do the damn waffles always land butter side down?

    The waffles never land. They hover over SO bunny's head forever and ever. Amen. Apr 2, 2010 at 2:48

    I stand corrected. That would make it much easier to pick the bunny hairs off. Mmm, waffles. And some lapin avec citron for dessert.

  • Why do those waffles look so much like slices of brains? There must be something wrong with me.

    @James: Um, I don't think it works quite like that. There's one important detail you're missing.
