Did you know that in 1726, a woman in Godalming, Surrey, gave birth to rabbits?
Yeah, I know. But this is a great story, and one I hadn’t heard before. My friend and comedian Iszi Lawrence made it, and while watching it I noticed a couple of familiar faces in it.
Oh: It may be a bit NSFW. Probably not, but just in case. Fairly warned be thee, says I.
I’ve heard a lot of stories like this one — dealing with skeptical topics in the past, usually by educated people being fooled by various sillinesses — but this one was new to me.
Oh: If Iszi’s voice sounds familiar, then perhaps you are a Skeptics Guide to the Universe fan. Listen to the intro. As for why she drew that doctor as me, I asked her, and she said it was because my face “was fun to draw”. I might disagree, but felt that arguing over it would be splitting hares.
