Eek! Ack! It’s a Suicidal Bunny!

Suicide. It's horrible, It's tragic. It's...awesomely hilarious, if you are reading Andy Riley's Book of Bunny Suicides. It's filled with various ways the bunny kills himself. A bunny with the toaster in the kitchen, anyone?

Really, the book is funny. But I guess it didn't meet the passing grade of an Oregon mom, as she demanded it be removed from her son's high school library. In this Seattle Times story, the angry mom says "It is a comic book, but that's not funny. Not at all."

Have you read the book? Do you find it offensive? Would your parents find it offensive?

The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at
