Okay… this is my absolute favorite of Canon’s Rabbit & Squirrel Stories. This one makes me laugh out loud at the end!! (If you want to read his others stories, click here :-)
Rabbit’s Embarrassing Moment
Rabbit and Squirrel are hanging out in rabbit’s burrow.
Rabbit: Squirrel, you want to have a jumping contest?
Squirrel: Uh, what kind? Up or across?
Rabbit: Up. And you can’t back out of the contest now.
Squirrel: Oh come on!
Squirrel jumps up and goes about half way to the ceiling (about 1 ½ feet up in the air).
Rabbit (laughing): Is that all you got?
Rabbit jumps up, hits his head on the ceiling and face-plants himself into the dirt below.
Rabbit (with his head in the dirt): Hey, who turned out the lights?
Squirrel: Um, actually you just face-planted yourself in the dirt.
Rabbit (thinking, I’m way too good of a jumper to do that…): No, really squirrel. Turn back on the lights.
Squirrel: Okay rabbit, here I go!
And squirrel grabs rabbit’s tail and pulls him out of the dirt.
Squirrel (while pointing to the rabbit-sized hole in the dirt): There’s proof that you face-planted yourself into the dirt.
Rabbit: Oh. Can I try again?
Rabbit: Well, I’m used to jumping outside.
Squirrel: Well next time, we can have the contest at my house, and you can knock yourself out when you face-plant into my TREE!
