New Zealand = the Canada of Australia


A contest that involves children seeing how far they can throw dead rabbits has been banned in New Zealand following outcry from animal welfare campaigners.

The annual 'rabbit throw' in the South Island town of Waiau has been a tradition for years but officials have had to cancel the event following complaints from the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA).

An animal cruelty inspector with the charity, Charles Cadwallader, said: "Do you throw your dead grandmother around for a joke at her funeral?"

First of all, I can't believe this legendary tradition has been going on this long without people like the SPCA freaking out any earlier. Considering we live in a world where dodgeball is illegal in most states, this just seems like one of those things that should've gotten banned a long time ago.

Second of all, ummmm no Charles Cadwallader I don't throw my dead grandmother around for a joke at her funeral. And might I add thats a truly terrible analogy. Maybe if these rabbits made some banging matzoh ball soup or sent me a check for a couple hundo every year for my birthday, they wouldn't be getting tossed around either. You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours, ya know?

seriously, what a fucking retarded analogy. only in new zealand....
