Kill the Rabbit, Kill the Rabbit


FOUND by Caleb Smith in Joplin, Missouri

I found this old photograph along with some others in the flea market. I was pretty sad to see someone throw away a photo with such character. These men lived only 60 years ago, and no one cared to keep this picture of them.

Some Similar Finds:

  • Librarian in the Woodwork

    Thanksgiving dinner’s ’bout ready! It’ll taste just like turkey once we throw’s on the fixin’s!!

    (Just so’s one of the dead rabbits isn’t really an un-dead Bunnicula!)

  • orinocowomble

    Oh no! They killed Bunneee!!

  • Chrome Toaster

    The Title of this Find is misspelled.. it should, ovcoarse, be “Kill the Wabbit” (in Elmer Fudd’s voice… “ohh Bwuun-hilda! you’we so wuv-wee…!”). Photo Finds have always been my favorites. I hate to see “heritage” photos in flea markets, second hand stores and antique stores. (usually each spring I get a wild hare and peruse my local antique stores- of which there are many- adopting other peoples’ discarded Ancestors.)

    I love the two very distinct hat styles.

    Do you suppose the photo was actually taken in Missouri? For some reason, I thought Missouri had a balmier climate than that. Hmm.

    Oh.. and Joplin is in Jasper County, MO. Found free association of the day:

    “Jasper Jasper I LoVe JaspEr. hE iS the BeST dog By Sara.”

    I also peruse the heritage photos at flea markets and thrift stores, and there are always some I can’t resist buying. But they are way too expensive. Dollar photos add up fast. Honestly, photos of people no one knows shouldn’t cost more than a dime, or maybe a quarter.

    Missouri isn’t balmy in the winter. Between dips in the jet stream and the winds blowing across the Great Plains, it can be downright frigid for long stretches of time (or could be back before climate change set in).

    they are so cruel. they killed bunny.

  • Librarian in the Woodwork

    Did someone kill the Blog along with the rabbits? Getting close to a week since this was posted and I’m getting tired of checking for new Finds but not finding any.

  • Clover_in_the_Lawn

    I think Found is on Thanksgiving Vacation.

  • orinocowomble

    Yup, Found seems to be back to its old tricks. Which is odd since you can programme blogs to release new posts whenever you want, and set them up before hand.

  • Librarian in the Woodwork

    All your rabbit are belong to us!

  • umabix

    I second that sentiment.

  • Librarian in the Woodwork

    How about they program it to bring up some of the old Finds that now have no comments under them since all our previous witty remarks seem to have been erased in the upgrade (darn those wily American Apparel models!!)
