I asked Mr. W last night WHY he had eaten the bunny the way he had. (I could have asked earlier, but then I wouldn't have had so much fun making fun of it. :)
He gave me that "it's so obvious" look I get regularly from him and said, "I broke off the ears and then I was holding it with its head up so I ate it that way."
TECHNICALLY not a failure of the "eating the ears first", I guess - he basically removed the ears from play and then carried on from there.
I think I'm done with obsessing about this. :)
