Jonathan and Brian shared a house during their last year of college
with a few other guys. One of the ways the guys in the house, and some
of their other friends amused themselves was to take Jonathan's stuffed
bunny named Mr. Bunn; and put him in different situations. Jonathan
would come home to find Mr. Bunn doing things such as sitting at his
keyboard, composing music; or living out a fantasy as a secret agent...
"Bunn...James Bunn". Sometimes they would bring others in on the latest
bunny caper. He also appeared as Dr. Bunn when Jonathan went for
his medical school interviews.
About a year after Jonathan graduated; Brian was visiting him where
he was in medical school. And as a joke, Brian kidnapped Mr. Bunn; and
helped him become "The Prodigal Bunn". Brian
and Mr. Bunn had many adventures together; going different places;
and meeting new people. Brian even arranged for Mr. Bunn to hitch a ride
with Jeromy, another of the former roommates who was taking a trip to Europe.
During this time; Jonathan realized that Mr. Bunn was gone; but wasn't
exactly sure where he had gone.
Two and a half years passed. Jonathan had found out that it was Brian
who was responsible for Mr. Bunn's disappearance; and quite insistently
(and maybe once or twice even profanely) asked for the return of his
bunny. During Mr. Bunn's absence, Brian and Jeromy adapted the
Parable of the Prodigal Son from the Bible, and used it to tell the
story of the bunny's adventures.
Jonathan went to visit Brian & Jeromy in order to attend the
wedding of a mutual friend. During the reception afterward; Mr. Bunn
was returned to Jonathan on a silver platter, along with an album
containing the parable, and the pictures shown on the previous
pages along with other pictures showing more of Mr. Bunn's adventures.
Many of their friends have heard the stories about Mr. Bunn; but have not
seen the picures or heard Brian & Jeromy's parable. So... there you have it.
