UK Man Disguised Himself In Bunny Costume Before Ambushing and Stabbing Ex’s New Boyfriend

PritchardAnd for the most disturbing piece of rabbit related news this month:

A Bristol, England man was sentenced yesterday to eight years and eight months in prison after admitting to disguising himself in a bunny costume, duping his way into his ex’s home, and stabbing his ex’s new boyfriend several times in a jealous rage last October.

The Bristol Post reports

Mark Pritchard arrived at the home of his former gay lover Lee Corbin in Totterdown, dressed in a theatrical animal outfit.

He was holding roses and love letters.

500full-donnie-darko-posterPritchard managed to persuade his ex's new boyfriend, Martin Williams, that he was carrying a "special delivery" from Mr Corbin, who was away on holiday.

After reading out a number of love letters he had written himself, Pritchard persuaded Mr Williams to blindfold himself and wait in bed for "some treasure".

But Pritchard snuck up on his rival and tried to knock him out with a handkerchief covered in chloroform before starting to stab him with a knife.

Following an intense struggle, Pritchard fled the scene and was found later that day by police. Williams suffered two stab wounds to the hip, one to the neck and multiple defensive injuries.

Honestly the Easter Bunny is already universally understood to be a terrifying and disturbing individual folks. So if a creepy man in a rabbit costume shows up at your door, best not to let him in.

  1. I myself am a bunny of some note, and my husband is a bunney (with an "e", please note) and we both disavow the actions of this degenerate rabbit.

    The Holy Rabbit of Antioch will be on site presently to administer disciplinary action.

  4. The Easter Bunny is a lot less disturbing than the other trademark fictional characters of US (and other Western) youth, including the Tooth Fairy (she pays for your body parts; it's literally blood money!), Santa Claus (he breaks into your home and gives you toys produced by an army of slave labor!), Ronald McDonald (a clown, nuff said), and of course Jebus (everything you do is a sin and you will suffer eternal misery because of it! I died for your sins, but no matter--you'll never be good enough!).

    Tony the Tiger seems the only safe resort. Oh wait, he's a tiger!

  5. I'm almost inclined to say this dude is awesome just for his costume!

  6. Gay marriage could reawaken the "Betty Broderick" syndrome. This type of betrayal can consume and kill.

  7. I wonder what Glenn Close has to say about this.

  8. The costume is a Donnie Darko reference, not Easter. Watch the film.

  13. Can we talk about the fact that the new boyfriend was naive and gullible enough to be convinced by a guy in a rabbit costume to blindfold himself and wait in bed for 'some treasure'? Honestly, I think the smart one in this scenario is the dude in the bunny outfit.

  14. That doesn't look like Frank.

  15. Someone needs to sit the third man down and have a conversation with him about his choice in boyfriends. His first, being crazy, and his second, being a complete idiot.

  16. The new boyfriend doesn't sound too bright

  17. D.R.H, agreed!
