Still More Bunnies

Okurin, the bunny-shaped, “eco-sensitive” gift bag.

I don’t know. It must be the season. Suddenly I’m seeing bunnies everywhere. The bunnies above were designed by a Japanese firm called Innocence, Inc. (kind of an oxymoron, isn’t it?) and they’re intended as a replacement for the ornate (and disposable) layers of gift wrap that the Japanese so love. I saw them at a remarkable display of all things Japanese, from high design to ordinary products, at the Felissimo Townhouse (through November 1). You should stop by if you can. It’s almost as good as a trip to Japan.

P.S. This bunny thing is supposed to be distracting me from politics, but it’s not working.

P.P.S. Oh, to hell with the bunnies. Watch this ad.
