I love Happy Bunny.  I think it's hilarious.  I have a keychain that reads "Boys suck."

BTW, Happy Bunny is supposed to be that mean and rude.  I mean, it's a cute little smiling bunny saying things like "You suck big time."  It's absolutely hilarious.

Hey! I have that "kiss my ass" bunny on my wallet, spaceace. Minus the glitter though.

I love that wallet. I've had it for three years and it's followed me all over the country, still in great shape.

I'm not sure I see what being a nice person has to do with it.  I think I'm a nice person and I think Erin is a nice person and WE like Happy Bunny.

I've been in there a couple times. Got a slayer hockey jersey there, saw it in the window.. too small.. returned it, got a bigger one. Weird place.

I did notice everyone in there seemed to be afraid of me, but I'm used to that anyway.

Believe it or not, people in Hot Topic are usually more afraid of your type than the ones in Abercrombie and Fitch.

That's because they're "poseurs".  They look sort of goth and edgy, but they don't actually live it.

I've never been in an Abercrombie store.

I do however get all my jeans from 'American Eagle'.. there is a reason for this. I have an interesting body, whilst not huge.. I do have like a 38 inch waist so I generally look for 'Fat guy friendly jeans' and on top of that, I have big over-developed thighs from playing football my whole life.. so jeans are sometimes interesting on me. The ones in AE fit really good... and they last well. I bought 5 pairs about 2 years ago and haven't had any need to get another pair of jeans yet. At $30 a piece that ain't bad.


That's because they're "poseurs".  They look sort of goth and edgy, but they don't actually live it.


Edgy? I thought those were the guys who refused to get wasted?


Hot Topic isn't for weird people.


I beg to differ. Anybody with more than 0 pieces of metal in their face is weird. I speak from experience.

I may be "out-a-touch" but this is the first time I have heard of Happy Bunny and from what I can see, I'm not very impressed. It seems like in this day and age it is "cool" to be rude. You see it on t.v. all the time. There was an article by David Brooks in the paper today about it. (I was hoping to get a link but because he works for the NYT, you have to subscribe which I don't). And then people wonder why kids today are rude and obnoxous.

I have 13 ear piercings (6 in one ear, 5 in the other and two on the top of my ear.)  I also have my nose pierced and used to have my belly button pierced.  I don't have any tatoos though. 

I want to get a tiny butterfly tatoo on my pinkie toe.  My mom used to always cross her pinkie toe over her ring finger toe - it was weird but so cute.  And butterflies are my symbol for her (long story) so I thought it would be a nice tribute to her.  I'm going to wait until it's warmer though, so I can wear flip flops while it heals.

My husband has 5 tatoos and 6 holes in his ears.

oh, that's really cool!  I have 3 in each ear, also 1 up top in each ear, my tongue pierced, and soon a tiny nostril piercing (maybe my b-day gift). I have one tattoo...so far.

Happy Bunny is just another in the endless marketing of obnoxious novelty crap.  It took me a good 15 years to learn how to ignore snarky junk from the mall, but I finally managed.  Happy Bunny didn't even register until this thread brought it to my attention.  I've definitely seen Happy Bunny everwhere, I just haven't looked at them, if you know what I mean!

When I was a kid, my peers were buying the ubiquitous "You're ugly and your mother dresses you funny" pins from Spencer's Gifts.  Happy Bunny is the same kind of thing.
