3. The world record for highest rabbit jump is held by Snöflingans, of Sweden. SNOFLINGANS, people.
4. Vice was kind enough to record a video of one of these competitions.
As if anyone needed another reason to visit the Nordic countries. Might as well retire my “cute things to see before I die” bucket list, because I don’t think it’s going to get better than this.
And bonus pics, because why the the heck not. Happy Friday!
