Honey Roasted Bunny
6 to 8 servings
2 small super-cute bunnies, about 1 1/2 pounds each
1 cup orange juice
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons ground fennel
1 teaspoon saffron threads, crumbled
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons coarse sea salt
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup honey
2 cups orange juice
Coarse sea salt
1 bunch watercress, coarse stems removed, for garnish
Wedges of lemon, for garnish
1 medium onion, thinly sliced and soaked for 30 minutes in ice water
Rinse the bunnies and gently pat them dry with paper towels.
Cut each one into three pieces; the hind legs, the front legs, and the loin. Cut the hind and front leg sections into 2 pieces each, leaving the loin in one piece. You should now have 5 sections per bunny.
Place the cute little bunny parts in a large deep nonreactive bowl.
In a small sauce pan over medium heat, reduce the orange juice to half a cup. In a small bowl, combine the pepper, fennel, saffron, cayenne, and salt. Add the reduced orange juice and the lemon juice, whisk together, and let stand for 10 or 15 minutes. Add the honey and mix together. Pour this mixture over the bunny pieces, toss so that each one is evenly coated, and let sit at room temperature for about 1 hour, loosely covered. Toss the pieces every 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Remove the bunny from the marinade and place on a rack in a roasting pan. Roast the bunny for 20 to 25 minutes, until done through with no trace of pink remaining. Baste once with the marinade halfway through the cooking time, then again when you remove the yummy bunny from the oven.
Place the bunny pieces on a platter and surround them with sprigs of watercress and wedges of lemon. Drain the onion slices briefly on paper towels, separate them into rings and scatter them over the top.

Taking inspiration from my friends… and past personal experience, I have devised a new and seemingly foolproof diet.
Please put your hands together and Welcome the…
The Handcuff Diet!
Guaranteed to cause weight loss!
Here’s what you do:
Buy a pair of Handcuffs. (Not the ones you keep next to the bed… I’m talking about Real Ones. If you already have our previously suggested Serial Killer Kit, use the heavy duty zip ties. If you followed our directions, it’s in your trunk.)
Cuff your hands behind your back. (This is the only part you may request help if needed. If you can’t see your genitalia… you’ll probably need help.)
Keep your hands cuffed behind your back until you have lost your desired amount of weight. (Could be two weeks… could be two years. It’s all up to You!)
So Simple even You can do it!
I know you’ll want to cheat. But here’s the beautiful part;
Now when you find yourself in the line at McDonald’s ordering your between meal snack of a Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Chicken McNuggets, Large Fry, Chocolate Shake and two Happy Meals for the kids you don’t have, (Needless to say, the drive-through is out unless you know how to drive a car with your hands cuffed behind your back… I’m sure a couple of you do…) this Diet adds just the right amount of difficulty. Sure you can get to your wallet… and sure, you might be able to retrieve the bag from the counter… but finding the right place to dump the contents on the ground so you can shove your face in it takes time.
Delivery is always an option, but after a few of those the word get’s around… and even the delivery guys, as shady as they might be, are repulsed by a fat guy with several days of Pizza and Chinese smeared all over his face trying to get them to ‘reach into their back pocket’ to get paid. I have some experience with this, but it’s the front pocket, still handcuffs and Chinese, but nothing to do with Food. It led to the inspiring ‘past personal experience’ prompting this Revolutionary new way to eat…)
So join the fastest growing body of Federal ‘Residents’ who already know about this brand new approach to food!
The Time is Now!
You too can get the look of an Inmate!
