Toby is the cutest little bunny on the planet. Unfortunately, he will DIE on November 6th, 2006 if you don.t help. I rescued him several months ago. I found him under my porch, soaking wet, injured from what appeared to be an attack from an alley cat. I took him in, thinking he had no chance to live from his injuries, but miraculously, he recovered. I have since spent several months nursing him to health. Toby is a fighter, that.s for sure.

Unfortunately, on November 6th, 2006, Toby will die. I am going to eat him.

I thought it was on Easter of 2005? Does he just keep upping the date? I doubt there is a Toby happy.gif.

He keeps on changing the dates which kind of gives it away that it's fake. Snopes has already debunked it as you can see if you click the link below.

Even if you talk alone he'll always find you.
He knows, so tell him your sins. Tell him, even if you don't know his face.

Wow, that's weird, I'm a snopes junkie and I never saw that before XD.

I just noticed he was changing the dates because when I searched it on google it said "I'm going to eat him for my easter dinner" and when I went to the site it said November or whatever. I wonder if he's actually getting money out of that?

I saw that a while ago.  I sent the guy my Dad's recipe for rabbit stew.  I am sure the guy is still getting money for it. A fool and his money is soon parted; and there are lots of fools.

of course, if he REALLY wanted to kill the rabbit, he wouldn't have bothered to rescue and care for it. He would have let it die and had a good stew for dinner that night.

haha sounds kinda stupid. Let's all try to save a rabbit. And while we're at it, let's save every cow and chicken and whatever else people eat. Sounds fun!
