Duck or Bunny  
I thought of a great idea for a Killer Bunnies card. You've probably heard Buddy Hackett's joke about a hunter who shoots a duck and then has to climb over a fence to get it. Well, on the other side of the fence is a farm and the farmer claims ownership of the duck because it's on his property. To settle things the farmer proposes a contest: they will take turns kicking each other in the crotch, until one of them can't remain standing. The hunter agrees, so the farmer kicks him. The hunter has tears streaming down his cheeks and his face turns purple, but he stays on his feet. The hunter then declares, "Okay, it's my turn." The farmer says, "Aw, you can keep the duck."

The card is called "You Can Keep the Duck" and it's a Play Immediately. Starting with the person that drew the card, players take turns rolling a d12, and must get at least a 6. If a player rolls lower than 6, one of his bunnies dies (which is like getting kicked in the crotch). However, he gets to keep the duck (i.e. the card) as if it were a bunny. And the reason it can count as a bunny is that it's one of those trick pictures that looks like a duck at one angle and like a bunny at another.

I would suggest some way of making the card worth less than a bunny (so it's not just 'I lose a bunny but I gain something worth a bunny'). Or making them lose something worse than a bunny (a carrot - getting kicked in the carrot sounds painful...)

Is that picture your own or did you take it from somewhere? It's pretty good.

Well, there's no way the duck can form a bunny triplet or have any other nifty powers. Perhaps it could be incapable of holding modifiers such as Clovers and the CDC Containment Suit. And since ducks don't eat carrots, maybe it can't help you win the game.

getting kicked in the carrot sounds painful...

Yes, it does. That's a good alternative.
