Seventies television star, Dan Haggerty, died in January. I was telling a friend over the phone, and googled Dan Haggerty. The following quote was the top item in my search results…
“Bunny Ranch owner and friend of Haggertys Dennis Hof tells TMZ, ‘Grizzly Adams was my friend for 20 years, the Bunnys loved him, he loved to drink with the Bunnys and told amazing jokes.'”
Conversation ensued wherein we were confused about the idea that Grizzly Adams would be drinking and telling jokes to bunnies. [I should point out here that the confusion part was, apparently, mostly mine. At this point, my friend chose not to divulge her suspicion about the whole brothel thing.]
I later realized (with the help of more friends—see, I had a need to discuss my confusion several times that day) that the Bunny Ranch is a brothel. I also concluded (through discussions with my friends) that “Bunnys” (a.k.a. hookers) is different than “bunnies” (a.k.a. several rabbits), and is likely some kind of trademark.
