The funniest story you will ever read. Honest.

This is quite possibly the funniest {true} story you are ever going to read.
It is quite possibly the funniest "event" I have ever witnessed in my almost 35 years on this Earth.
Except for the time in grade 6 when my husband wanted to show me how high he could kick in the school hallway....and then fell flat on his back.
He wasn't my husband in grade 6.
Just to clarify.

But anyways......

My husband was cleaning out our barn and put some old {working} appliances at the end of our driveway, free for anyone who wanted them. He then left to run some errands.

Within 5 minutes, two nice men knocked on our door and asked if they could take the appliances. I let them know that if they could load it all up, they were theirs to keep.

Then I went to get my jammies on.

I heard a high pitched shriek. Almost a scream... and immediately ran to the window to see what the commotion was.

I saw the two nice men standing at the back of their trailer with their hands on their knees, laughing.

The stove was halfway on the back of their truck.

One of the men walked over and kicked it. The stove that is.
The other guy looked under the stove.

They both jumped and ran to the back of their trailer. Again.

I realized that there was some sort of living creature in the stove....the stove that was in our barn....the stove I walked past every single day for the last couple years....the stove my husband brought to the end of the driveway...the stove I told these nice men worked fine and they could have it for free.

I then did what every generous, kind human being would do. I watched them from the window as I called my husband to get home immediately because there was something in the stove hanging halfway off their pickup truck.

And I thought they might have pooped their pants.
And I was terrified to go outside. In my pink plaid pyjamas.

So I watched.
The nice men kicked some more...looked underneath the stove some more....ran alot and put their hands on their heads alot.
They were freaking out.
I was too.

Then I witnessed the funniest moment I have ever seen. The nice {brave} men walked over to the stove and tipped it over a tad to let the animal out.

As they tipped it, the animal tried to get out, clawing its way on to one of the nice men.

The men dropped the stove.
Jumped off of the truck.
Ran like Forrest Gump.
And screamed like little girls.

What was this creature living in our stove???

It was Fluffy.
Our pet Flemish Giant 15+ pound bunny.

Our pet bunny who jumps out of her cage and hides in places we could never find her.

Now we know where she was.

Foursons said...

The Maven said...

AHAHAHA!!!! Oh man, that is too funny.

WackyMummy said...

Love it! That's an awesome story. =) I was thinking skunk, but giant-freaking-bunny is so much better be cause that's just not one that you're expecting!

Stacy, with no E said...

I thought rat too, that would have been hilarious to see. Good thing they didn't mistakely hurt your bunny while trying to escape from it ... lol

sky girl said...

Too bad you didn't get that on video. I would have laughed so hard I probably would have peed my pants.

Elaine A. said...

I bet that was the most hilarious scene ever!!!

Glad you found your bunny. :D

Grand Pooba said...

Bahahaha! Oh man I wish I could have seen that in person!!! I hae to admit I'd make a run for it if some 13 pound black thing came flyin at me!

Do you realize when you are trying, with great difficulty, to stifle your laughter because you are at work - that you end up with tears pouring down your face?

That was hilarious!

Anonymous said...

A bunny? That is just too funny. I was expecting a skunk or a raccoon. lol

Clearly you have underestimated the sheer ferocity of a Flemish Giant Rabbit, as a bunny expert (don't laugh, I used to SHOW them, you know the same way they do dog shows) and I can tell you that the Flemish Giant is pretty much the biggest baddest bunny this side of Bugs!

Agressive bunny behavior includes, but is not limited to:

-giving the stare of death

-thumping their back feet as a warning of impending violence

-biting fingers, or arms, or faces clean off (okay, that might be a SLIGHT exaggeration)

-and most terrifyingly of all, Flemish Giants are well known for their Jedi Mind control....

Yup, you remember that the next time you decide to let that ferocious beast out of it's cage. Those poor dear men! ;)

Jen said...

LOL! That is a fabulously funny story.

Jenners said...

Sounds like you had plenty of time to grab a video camera or something!!! : )

And this reminds me of the Monty Python movie (Holy Grail) with the rabbit!

Rachel said...

Oh my Lord - that is HILARIOUS!

The punch line is just too perfect because everyone is assuming some crazy rabid animal is gonna come lunging and hissing out of the stove - and instead it's Bugs Bunny!

Totally cracking up - even though I know how bad bunny scratches can hurt, LOL!

Thanks for sharing - gosh I wish I could have seen it!

Oh my goodness, that really was the funniest thing I've ever read. I thought that maybe it was a raccoon or something, not a Fluffy. Thanks for the great end to my night
