Since I’m sure most of you aren’t familiar with Wash U, the bunny is a very strange looking statue on campus. I think its supposed to be like “the Thinker” but for some reason, its a demented looking rabbit instead… The artist who made it donated it to the school, and the legend is that after he died, Wash U tried to give it back to the artist’s wife but she refused to take it.
