...how about some pictures of a rabbit which can balance objects on its head?

?? You missold that rabbit! It's not got anything on its head, it's merely clutching a brown circle while looking mean. Are we supposed to follow one of the links?

Silly, click on the links listed on the bottom of the page. The right-hand side ones are the ones with English captions.

And the brown circle is a pastry.

Er...the pastry is a mooncake. Specifically, yuebing (the name of the bunny) translates from Chinese to "mooncake." It's extra cute because rabbits are associated with the moon (Westerners see a man in the moon, the Chinese see a rabbit).

OK, now I want a mooncake. It looks rich and glossy enough to be a piece of polished furniture *___*

*__* They're usually filled with a sweet paste made out of red beans or lotus seeds. Bet you can find them in London's Chinatown area? They're not in season until around autumn, but most days people make them year round. Ask for a plain one without an egg (kind of strange acquired taste).

Thanks for providing the directions to Penny and others! I didn't know where the object-balancing pictures would be either when I was first told about it.

Welcome! That site almost makes me want to get a bunny of my own.
