Could be worse. Could be whatever happened here. http://dinosaurdracula.com/blog/tmnt-pasta-1991/

I vote we send a can of this turkey dinner stuff to DinoDrac. Clearly the guy there needs more strange cans.

Indeed.
The goodness of said Christmas Dinner in a Can is debatable.

[CALL]Bright Side[/CALL] that made me laugh :D

[CALL]Hammy[/CALL] :pipkin-oh :pipkin-oh :pipkin-oh

==========
Hazel peaked out of the warren's main entrance.  The snowy landscape extended as far as he could see.  It had been a few days since the Feast of Frith, and he hoped to be able to snatch a few blades of grass.

When suddenly he noticed that awful smell.

He looked around him; it did not take him long to find out where it came from.  Further away, he could see a bright purple object standing out in the middle of the snow.  It was a tin can, but he did not know this.  To him, this was just another new, and potentially dangerous, object.  He slowly moved away from the can, and hopped over to Fiver, who had dug a trench in the snow to get to the grass underneath.
-"What's the matter, Hazel?  You look worried."
-"It's just that...thing in the snow, over there.  Do you know what it is?"
-"Let me take a look."
Fiver cautiously hopped over to the can, and started to sniff it.
-"Be careful!" Hazel warned.  "It may be dangerous."
-"Oh no, it's not dangerous, I can feel that.  It's a human thing of some sort.  What is it doing here?"
-"Are you sure it's safe?"
-"I am.  What worries me is what's inside."
-"What's going on around here?" Hazel and Fiver turned to the source of the voice; it was Bigwig.
-"There's something in the snow," Hazel explained.  "Fiver says it's not dangerous, but we don't know what it is."
Bigwig spent a while walking around the can, looking at it and trying to figure out what it was.  During that time, a few other rabbits also approached the can.
-"I think we should get rid of it," Bigwig said after a while.
-"How do you plan to do that?" Bluebell asked.
Bigwig remained silent.  He did not have a plan to get rid of the can.  However, if he remained silent for too long, he would look like a fool in front of everyone.  To make things worse, Bluebell would probably spread the story among the others who were not currently present.  He had to think of something quickly to avoid this embarrassment.
-"Stand back!" he shouted.  After the other rabbits moved away, he hopped back to the beech tree.  Then, he let out a ferocious cry and pounced on the tin can.  This caused the lid to pop open, spilling the contents of the can all over the snow.  Bigwig dared not look at the crowd around him; it would be beyond embarrassing.  However, he soon saw another rabbit slowly approach the contents of the can; it was Blackberry, who sniffed the contents of the can.
-"I think it's some sort of food."
-"Food?" Strawberry said in disgust.  "You mean humans eat this stuff?"
-"I'm afraid they do, but humans are one of the great mysteries of the universe that we should not try to understand."
-"But still, that stuff smells disgusting."
-"I totally agree.  But it can't stay here, it's going to attract rats and crows, and we don't really want these creatures hanging around the warren."
-"Maybe we could bury it?" Clover suggested.
-"I'm afraid not.  The ground is frozen solid, so we can't dig, and if we bury it under the snow, it's still going to smell."
-"I still don't understand how humans can eat this stuff," Strawberry said.  "But then, we said the same thing when we had to get worms and beetles for Kehaar."
-"Kehaar?" Blackberry repeated.  "Hey, why don't we..."
==========
Bigwig was walking with Kehaar across the Down, explaining the situation.  Several other rabbits were watching the events from a distance.
-"I don't think it's going to work," Hyzenthlay said.
-"It may not," Hazel said, "but it's still worth trying."
By that point, Kehaar was standing next to the food.  He picked up one piece with his beak, only to spit it out almost immediately.
-"Vat's da mattah vit you, meester Pigvig?  Ya vant to poison me?"
-"Uh, I'm sorry Kehaar, I thought you would like this.  I was wrong, I'm sorry..."
-"Kehaar not like dis ting.  I vant some feesh.  I go get fresh feesh now, ya?"
With that, he took off, and Bigwig hopped towards the two Chiefs, letting out a loud sigh.
-"Call a general meeting," Hazel said.  "I want to hear everyone's thoughts on the situation."
The rabbits slowly gathered in the Honeycomb, and Hazel briefly explained the situation.
-"If burying it is not an option," Thethuthinnang said, "we'll have to dispose of it some other way.  We could carry it away."
-"That sounds like a valid possibility," Hyzenthlay replied, "but how do we carry it?"
-"What if we put it back inside the larger object?"
-"That should work.  Does anyone have anything else to suggest?"
-"We just need to figure out where exactly we will dump it," Nyreem pointed out.
-"How about Nuthanger Farm?" Hyzenthlay suggested.  "We could also steal some flayrah while we're there."
==========
Late that afternoon, Hazel, Hyzenthlay, Fiver, Blackberry and Bigwig started the trip towards the farm.  The trip went by uneventfully, and the rabbits took turns rolling the can.  They dropped it off in the middle of the farmyard and went towards the garden.  There was not a lot of flayrah available, given the time of year, but it was better than nothing.

Before starting the trip back to the warren, the rabbits cast one last glance at the farmyard.  They could see Tab slowly approach the tin can and briefly sniff it, before meowing and running back towards the barn.
-"Even the cat doesn't like it!" Fiver said.  "Those humans are so weird..."

:silverweed3 Awesome Story, Chipster-roo. Didn't even consider this was a possibility for a story.:p Just goes to show that stories lie in places least expected for a story to even exist and yet it takes those who see those stories to bring them into life. Well done Chipster-roo. :) *Tackle-hugs*
