Heck.. I was going to send him a couple of PayPal bucks just for the humor value.. But I get:

This recipient is currently unable to receive money.

from PayPal.. Apparently they noticed. Nancy likes the thongs.. Ok, she liked the bumper sticker, I liked the thongs (on Nancy). I'm just wondering.. how much did he collect via PayPal first? Remember this one for next Easter folks, it could be your vacation money instead of his.

Thanks for the clarification re:thongs. I'm peeved; presumably paypal, pissed, pulled the plug. I understand (perceive?) paypal's possible policies (sorry, I'll quit now) but I still think it sucks. I think he should be able to collect donations from whomever wants to send them. Does this mean I can't, in a fit of optimism, set up a donation click on my site? Also, this is a test, because my last comment showed up with a blank comment line above it again. Is it just ME!?!? Resistentialism: Dan's code is out to get me.

Dan's code is out to get Nancy and someone at Paypal wants to see a bunny eaten!

The guy's site mentions his on-going war with Paypal. Evidently they keep putting limits on his donation account. Personally, I don't see how donating money to him to save this bunny is any different than donating money to Christian ministries in Afganistan. Actually, the latter, in my opinion, is immoral.

What I have wondered, though, is what if he gets $40,000 in donations at the end? Does he eat the rabbit and keep the money?

Yeah, I noticed that over at MarkV's blog, but I also noted that he put his entry in his Cooking and Recipes category.
