ABOUT THE IMAGE: No one likes a shotgun wedding, particularly when they find they’re marrying neither a bride nor groom, but a rabbit. Taken from the 1953 classic, “Hare Trimmed,” Yosemite Sam has found this out at the absolute wrong time as he walks the isle with his…um…cottontail bride…yes cottontail.
