So here’s the deal. Sp!tting Hares has its roots in an unusual place. Years ago, back when Rock Band was a thing, I played that game with my kids. Still do. And one thing has been consistent across all the intervening platforms and iterations of this game over the years. Our “band” was/is called Sp!tting Hares.
It’s wordplay, of course. The name sounds, intentionally, like “splitting hairs”. In fact, our PlayStation 2 band may have actually been called Splitting Hairs at some point, but I don’t remember it that way. Regardless, I was and still am infatuated with the homonymous nature of the phrase and the name.
So it stuck. I have only recently started using it as my mostly anonymous web presence, mostly on Twitter, and occasionally on this blog. Now I’ve built an entire theme around the concept, which incorporates my long standing love for Bugs Bunny, cute rabbit pictures and memes, and bizarre rabbit imagery and photography. I’ll also rely often upon the Happy Bunny designs of Dallas Robertson (all without appropriate licensing) and other misappropriated rabbit/bunny/hare themed art.
Opinions are like rabbits; they both breed like crazy and make a terrific stew.
