Evidence: In the summer rabbits will frequently eat the tender leaves of the lettuce I plant only to leave me and my family the bitter inner leaves. They will also wait till my beets are at the critical juncture, between a shoot and the formation of a beet root, to eat them. They also intentionally wait till I come home from an evening out and play in the backyard so that when I pull into the driveway the headlights of the van expose their superior numbers.
This morning however I was finally convinced of their smart aleck ways. Context: for the past three weeks there has been a nice pack of snow on the ground. And for the past three weeks my family has created a path from our backyard to #1's school. Description: As I walked #1 to school this morning I noticed something: rabbit scat! Now here is the kicker, the sarcasm: The scat was only on the path, not to the left or right of the path but directly in our steps! This is obviously premeditated Sylvilagus floridanus sarcasm!
