Also, we forgot Rabbit Convertibles. The original Bitch Basket. I miss mine. Sort of.

Those aren't Westys. This is a Westy:

1973 and earlier, with the less bodacious upper bunk. This orange one is a 1974.

You have a Westfalia conversion.

US Rabbits were made in Westmoreland County.

Both are known in their respective groups as 'Westys'.

While I wouldn't consider "fatties" a "protected class", I would say that going after children is not a very endearing quality. In MOST cases I blame the PARENTS for children that grow up with poor eating habits. It all starts when they are young.
