    I have been told that the myxomatosis virus is a pox virus, and wondered if there were any health implications for humans.

    Would you guys eat it?

    I don't think it affects humans but you'd have to be pretty hungry to eat one by choice.

    I heard your buttocks swell up 3 times their normal size and eventually fall off. The result is you are unable to sit down for the rest of your life. :yikes:

    I'd avoid it, even if I were hungry.

    It doesn't affect humans, but just look at an infected rabbit and you won't feel so hungry after all.

    i suppose the advantage of eating a mxy rabbit is that it would be easy to catch, you prob wouldnt be able to grab it by the ears though.....

    It's safe to eat an infected rabbit that has been cooked, but I'd have to be starving to do it.

    Call me shallow but the only bunny with big eyes I'd be interested in catching would be one of these.

    Two rabbits eating toasted sandwiches..
    The first rabbit sticks to eating a ham and cheese sandwich.
    The second rabbit tries a ham and cheese sandwich.. and then tries a cheese and tomato sandwich...

    The second rabbit is halfway through his second sandwich when he suddenly collapses and starts to writhe in pain..

    "Whats wrong"? asks the first rabbit..

    with his last breath, the second rabbit replies...."Mixing my toasties"

    Yes, I'm afraid I'm old enough to recognise Charles Laughton.
