Brown Poll - Sex distribution among Brown pet dustbunnies

So, February Bulletin Poll was: “My dustbunny is…”

  • Female 12% [3]
  • Male 54% [13]
  • Undefined/can't remember :look 33% [8]

Most of the dustbunnies seem to be males. Here are some name examples:

Shara: “My dustbunny is Harvey. He is nice like Harvey the Pooka, but turns into the evil bunny from The Holy Grail if your mean to me!! Who needs a warder with a dustbunny like mine!”

Darim: “His name is Dux. ^^ He conquers other worlds (mostly beneath the furniture worlds) in my name.”

Sela: “Uh, yeah. Mine's male. And he has something of an ego problem.”

Serenla: “My bunny is George. And I will hug him and love him and squeeze him....”

Keara: “Mine is definitely male, though he tends to be a bit on the androgynous side recently. I forgot his name.” (later Sela searched our archives and found out that Keara’s bunny is called sir Hopsalot).

Allin: “Boy. Herman.”

Dracaenaa: “You know I can't remember...but I think it was male...and I think I remember naming him something like Frank but I'm not sure”

Shala: “I think mine's a boy, on account of it hasn't bitten me yet for calling it Bailey.”

Kheldin: “Abulafia is a dignified chap of indeterminate age.”

Taika: “Mine's male. His name is Ezr and he's an amazing levitating dustbunny.”

And of course we can’t forget our civilized latin-speaker:

Cicero Dustbunny: “Cuniculus vir sum.”

There were also three female dustbunnies:

Miriya: “Female. Name's Verdande, which is the modern spelling of the name of one of the Fates (Norns) in Norse mythology.”

Madeleine: “My dust bunny is female and named Tayla, after a character from Stargate: Atlantis.”

Cinnamin: “My Snuffles is a girl.”

And of course the undefined/androgynous ones:

Rijomu: “I respect my bunny's privacy and don't ask it any prying questions.”

Naomi: “My dust bunny's name is Dustie but after extensive research and polling... I still don't know what Dustie's gender is. I refer to him/her by either gender pronoun, mostly at random.”

Stasia: “My bunny is an it. And I can't remember if I gave him a name ever. I got him a super long time ago. BUT! I think I have just decided on a name, because I can. My rl bunny's name is Kiki... so my dust bunny will be Kiko.”

Cassie: “Umm...I never wondered about gender, I'm just happy to have my kitty/bunny. Besides, with the confusion my choice of name has certainly instilled in the poor kitty/bunny, I don't think my kitty/bunny needs to be limited by gender.”

Laithean: “Mine is named Brunn (Brown) I know... original”

Ismene: “I um... never really thought about it, actually.”

Adolla: “Yeah me either. Dustbunnies kinda just spawn.”

Brown-outs of the month

Riley Maconnar:

“Do Freudian slips count as Brown-Outs? I told my wife the other night that we needed to leave our waitress a big tit.”

Adolla Ceryia:

“The other day I tried to put the phone in the fridge and answer the milk.”

Lillian DeMeur:

“I was looking for a check out line to get into at the store last week, and spotted a magazine cover that looked nice.....well, before I knew it, I'd looked over every magazine, and had a lady get in the line I was standing by and say, "Did I just jump ahead of you?" The only thing I could think was, “you didn't move the magazine, so what are you talking about?””

Shala Miradsu:

“I had a cough last week that was keeping me from sleeping, so when I went to bed on Tuesday I took some NyQuil. Now, unfortunately, I did NOT have 8 hours to devote to sleep, so considering that I didn't go to bed until 3 AM, that was probably a bad idea. Staying awake through my first class was a tooth-and-nail struggle, so I decided I was going to use the ten minutes between it and my next class to have a quick nap. I scooted into the room, put my head against the wall and conked out. 8 minutes later I woke up, looked around...and realized I was in the wrong room.

Class hadn't actually started yet, so I just picked up my things and slipped out as quietly as I could.”
