The Wabbit and the Fusion Field

The group gathered in Ghost Bunny's laboratory, now permanently housed in the old abandoned garage. The Wabbit was having trouble with the project code names and was practicing. "Sparkle," he announced, addressing Ghost Bunny. "What the Binky is this machine?" "It's a fusion force field generator," said Ghost Bunny. "It will serve to protect us from future floods." The Wabbit hopped up and down with enthusiasm. "This thing?" he asked."This thing, as you put it, will protect us from floods, tempests and pestilence." said Ghost Bunny. "Pestilence?" enquired Lapinette. "Such as locusts," said Ghost Bunny. "What about the Forestry Police," asked the Wabbit. Ghost Bunny fluttered and smiled. "Out of ten, what's your tolerance for the poor Forestry Police," she asked. "About 2.5," said Lapinette. "Zero," said both the Wabbit and Skratch. Ghost Bunny made an adjustment. "There you are," she said. "How do we know it works?" said the Wabbit . "Do you see any Forestry Police?" said Ghost Bunny. "That's bad science," said the Wabbit. "Go outside and pretend to be the Forestry Police," said Ghost Bunny. The Wabbit hopped outside and turned around. Then stepping back he launched a hefty kick at the door and shouted. "Open, up! Forestry Police!" Immediately he felt a strange tingling and itching in his fur and it got worse and worse until he started jumping around. "It works, it works, turn it off!" shouted the Wabbit and he skulked back into the garage with a mean look. Lapinette and Skratch suddenly burst out laughing. "You've got bad fur now!" giggled Lapinette. "Oh no!" said the Wabbit and smoothed his crumpled coat. "Sparkle, do you have a force field setting for bad fur?" he asked. "It was a design priority," smiled Ghost Bunny.
