Officer Lopez: Attention! Attention! Ladies and gentlemen, attention! There is a herd of killer rabbits headed this way and we desperately need your help!…….. Class B Movie “Night of the Lepus (1972)”
STATE COLLEGE, PENNSYLVANIA, LATE SPRING 2009: Almost 30 years have passed since the visions in the sticky bun of Floppy the Bunny. The Phyrst has not changed much although the peanut shells have disappeared from every crevice in the timeless bar. At 02:05 not many are left in the bar and only a few have survived from the ravages of Saint Patricks Day that attempt the walk up the stairs without at least one trip.
One last look at the adjoining pool room knowing this is the last State College trip for quite some time! Maybe the last time forever of pounding down Yuenglings at this infamous facility. The mass of old plastic hats and foam leprachaun ears litters the sticky floor.
Floppy hasn’t changed very much since the Texas Tavern in Sydney. Even the ripped out sections of his dirty matted ears seems about the same. With an almost toothless grin he lifts an unopened Yuengling off the pool table and tosses it over. Seems like starting one more round while the mass of happy landers is being herded up the steps is a bit chancy, but Floppy never was much for schedules! Old Flop has put on a few pounds in the midriff and what fur remains is turning a putrid shade of grey, but that old charasma still seems to work to keep the bouncers at bay till the last Yuengling round is tossed down.
Floppy nods to the steps tossing a grubby gold coin on the bar. The next adventure is just beginning!
“Time to kick ass, Mr Floppy?”
Tall, deranged, and ragged nods in the affirmative.
“The future will be better tomorrow.”
