I guess it was inevitable that someone would start a wikipedia article about that. The fact that it survived peer review kinda makes me mad though, since my article about the wild eep got deleted.

it's = contraction for "it is"

its = possessive form

for example:

"Bunny with a pancake on its head" (sentence fragment)

"It's a bunny with a pancake on its head!" (declarative sentence)

"What's up with the bunny and a pancake on its head?" (interrogative)

"Kill the bunny with the pancake on its head!" (imperative)

thank you,

I think the main thing is that you're not supposed to make fun of them while you're eating them.

Looks like a pancake to me. Yum... pancakes and rabbit meat. Good thing it's lunch time.

EDIT: Okay, in the wiki, that picture clearly isn't of a pancake. But the pic I usually see floating around, sure looks like a pancake. In any case, yum... rabbit + starchy carbs.

My son has a pet rabbit. Not sure if she'll stand still for a pancake on her head. She'd probably eat the pancake when we're done messing around though so I might try it next time I make pancakes.
