Cork firefighter Tom Collins and friend


Kevin Collins writes:

In case you haven’t seen it yet, photos of a firefighter in Cork giving a rabbit some water after a gorse fire that have gone viral . The man in the picture Tom Collins is my brother, here is a message from him:

“The fire was a gorse fire on the Sheep’s Head peninsula, we were putting out the fire when the rabbit came over to us looking a bit worse for ware. We carry bottles of drinking water with us so the natural thing to do was to cool it down wish a quick wash and give it a drink. Adrian Collins (no relation), a firefighter from Skibbereen, took a couple of photos [above] on his phone.”

The rabbit, meanwhile, ran away on his merry way after a drink….

All the world’s a rabbit.

A new unhinged multiplication from UK animator Cyriak Harris, who says of it:

When I first had the idea for this video there were 7 billion people in the world, and I wanted to see what 7 billion of something actually looks like. I’m not entirely sure if I managed to create that many rabbits as I gave up counting them, and meanwhile 400 million new people appeared, so perhaps my work will never be done.

A darkly sumptuous, colour saturated, award winning 2014 short by Stephen Irwin (no, not that one obviously). To wit:

Somebody broke the girl’s parents. The rabbit was there when it happened. It was an awful mess.

Full screen, feet up.
