Return of The Bunny suicides


96 pages | January 25, 2007 | PDF | 2.3 Mb

Like its predecessor The Book of Bunny Suicides, it features mostly one-image cartoons, although there are some two- and three-image cartoons.

This book features more Rube Goldberg machines than the first one. However, Riley was drawing more from the British cartoonist W. Heath Robinson, a British contemporary of Goldberg's with a similar interest in implausible machinery. The term "Heath Robinson contraption" is used in Britain in exactly the way "Rube Goldberg machine" is used in the U.S.

This book also contains more parodies of various recent cultural and historical events of the time. For example, there is one image of a bunny tying himself to Gollum, seeking the ring a the top of the hill, and also a bunny pouring pepper into Sauron's eye from The Lord of the Rings, and an image of the falling Saddam Hussein statue, and a scene with The Doctor [from Doctor Who, retreating to the Tardis from a Dalek.
