My Nemesis, the Rabbit

It’s finally happened. I have a nemesis, but I’m not happy about it.

I always thought having a nemesis would be great, but it’s nothing like I’d dreamed it would be.

So who is this nemesis of mine? Well, don’t laugh, it’s the rabbit that lives under a bush in front of my house.

Weird, right? Yeah, I never thought my first nemesis would be a rabbit. The universe is a cruel mistress.

So how did I get a rabbit as a nemesis? Good question, simple answer. I have a string of Christmas lights that run along the ground (as seen in the videos here). No matter how I configure them that little shithead rabbit chews through the light string and makes it nonfunctional. The little bastard has destroyed 3 sets of lights so far. I think I need to concede defeat find a new place for those particular lights.

My nemesis, the rabbit wins this round.

    Rabbits can be mean and annoying. Don’t hire any knights to take care of it though. Knights never beat rabbits.

    Adam, My daughter once had a pet rabbit. I was surprised at the teeth on that guy. I’m not surprised a rabbit chewed through the lights. Mice will do the same thing. Their’re both rodents as far as I know. We were told by an exterminator that mice can destroy the wiring in a car. Good luck! 🙂 — Susan

    If you have a rabbit, you should bunny proof your house. Rabbits chew. We keep all cords at least 2 feet off the ground or behind heavy furniture. We haven’t had a cord chewed in years. It’s great. Bunnies can get electrocuted from open cords so it’s probably a good thing that bunny won this round.

    Cute story, but Christmas lights? You need higher voltage wiring.
