This is the only White Rabbit I know of:

One pill makes you larger
And one pill makes you small,
And the ones that mother gives you
Don't do anything at all.
Go ask Alice
When she's ten feet tall.

And if you go chasing rabbits
And you know you're going to fall,
Tell 'em a hookah smoking caterpillar
Has given you the call.
Call Alice
When she was just small.

When the men on the chessboard
Get up and tell you where to go
And you've just had some kind of mushroom
And your mind is moving low.
Go ask Alice
I think she'll know.

When logic and proportion
Have fallen her sloppy dead,
And the White Knight is talking backwards
And the Red Queen's "off with her head"
Remember what the dormouse said:
"Feed your head,
Feed your head"

Max, you only say white rabbits when there is an R in the month :p :p


Enjoy your day you muppet :p :D :D :D
No way. My mate Max is correct. It's twelve times a year. Maybe thirteen in your case when Mr. Phantom... yeah, yeah, yeah.. ;)

(Also, the quote is: "It's a puppet", not a muppet, you muppet....) :mad: ;)

:D

That's the first thing I thought of. Not sure what the white rabbit thing is about. :confused:

Mike I repped you, but I hit enter accidentally and left out the smiley. :D

Not exactly sure what its all about but I think it's a superstition, and saying rabbits or white rabbits on the 1st of the month is supposed to bring good luck :)

I f you live on Portland (see pick below) in Dorset you must never say Rabbits - it is deemed very unlucky ( as they quary Portland stone there ant as there are so many quarries/mine workings locals fear rabbits borrowing and causing caveins (?) etc.

So they are not always lucky - and of course carrying a rabbits foot for luck aint too lucky fot the rabbit :D :D

After a little research it seems you can say either....

An old custom is to say 'Rabbits' or 'White Rabbits' either once or three times on the first day of the month, as a good luck charm; it must be the first word said that morning, otherwise the charm is not potent

:rolleyes: ;) :D
Dya see this, Phantom, Mippet?

;) ('Cos I think the smiley with its tongue out is stoopid for a bloke to use).
