Thieves swipe world’s largest bunny, ex-Playboy model offers over $1,000 for its return

She brings new meaning to “Playboy Bunny.”

A former Playboy model and famed bunny breeder is offering the equivalent of $1,300 for the return of her world-record-holding bunny, which was stolen from its Worcestershire home over the weekend.

“A very sad day. Guinness world record Darius has been stolen from his home,” tweeted the UK’s Annette Edwards of her 10-year-old Continental Rabbit, which at 4-feet-4-inches long holds the Guinness World Record for World’s Longest Rabbit.

“The police are doing their best to find out who has taken him. There is a reward of a £1,000,” Edwards added.

The identity of the bunny burglars remains yet unclear.

The theft marks a heartbreaking blow for the 68-year-old mother of 10 and former glamour model, who has held the world record since 2008 with four of her animals capturing the title, the Daily Mail reported.

And while Darius currently holds the colossal cottontail crown, he is slated to be eclipsed by his offspring, Lewis and Daisy May, who both already measure over 4 feet long.

Unfortunately, 35-pound Darius is too old to breed now — but his plus-size progeny once sold for nearly $350.

Raising such a humongous hare is no mean feat. Edwards spends nearly $7,000 to feed her behemoth bunnies the carrots and apples required to maintain their massive size. She says the secret to breeding them big is to make sure the parents are huge and not to interbreed.

Edwards is so enamored with bunnies that she’s taken pains to become one: She reportedly dropped over $13,500 on cheek implants, chin implants, and a breast lift in an effort to resemble Jessica Rabbit, the cartoon sexpot from “Who Framed Roger Rabbit.”

A spokesman for West Mercia Police confirmed to the Daily Mail they were investigating the bunny theft: “We are appealing for information following the theft of an award winning rabbit from its home in Stoulton, Worcestershire,” officer Daren Riley told the outlet. “It is believed the Continental Giant rabbit was stolen from its enclosure in the garden of the property of its owners overnight on Saturday April 10 to April 11.”

Meanwhile, this isn’t the first time tragedy has befallen one of Edwards’ beloved bunnies. In 2017, Darius’ son Simon — who was then predicted to become the world’s largest rabbit — mysteriously died during a United Airlines flight from London to clients in the US.

The flight firm dug themselves deeper after cremating the 3-foot-long rabbit without the owner’s permission, sparking suspicion that they were hiding something.

“The whole thing stinks of a cover-up,” fumed the hopping mad breeder at the time, adding that she’s “sent rabbits all around the world and nothing like this has happened before.”

United Airlines was later sued by Simon’s prospective buyers in Iowa.

Harry Winston's 2021 floral jewelry collection wows

Give the gift of forever love with blossoms of baubles.

Harry Winston’s perennial Forget-Me-Not collection now radiates with its first-ever marriage of diamonds and rubies.

While the jeweler has previously offered its signature florals in a dazzling array
of gemstones, ranging from diamonds to blue sapphires, this new pairing leaves us
blushing.

Adorned with round brilliant, pear-shaped and marquise diamonds, it’s offered in five silhouettes: earrings, a pendant, a bracelet, a ring and a lariat necklace.

The feeling you’ll have upon plucking one of these beauties?

Unforgettable.

Boy’s botched Amazon order leaves him with $2,620 worth of Spongebob Squarepants popsicles

Boy's botched Amazon order leaves him with $2,620 worth of Spongebob Squarepants popsicles

That’s one way to freeze a bank account.

A 4-year-old cartoon fanatic from Brooklyn went a little overboard by buying nearly $3,000 worth of nonrefundable SpongeBob SquarePants Popsicles on Amazon.

However, an understanding Samaritan has set up a GoFundMe page Monday to help cover the chilling cost.

According to the crowdfunding page, the “truly adorable” SpongeBob diehard named Noah “managed to purchase $2,618.85 worth” of the pop-pelgangers from Amazon and “had them sent to his Auntie’s house.”

“In case you are wondering, that’s 51 cases, containing 918 popsicles,” Katie Schloss, a New York University student and social-work intern, wrote of the tot’s frozen-treat fiasco.

The predicament may seem adorable on its face. However, as Amazon will not refund the Popsicles, Noah’s mom Jennifer Bryant was feeling the (freezer) burn and thought she’d have to foot the bill herself.

This presented a major SpongeBob-stacle for the mother of three, who studies social work at NYU, and didn’t know how she was “going to be able to pay this off, in addition to student loans and all of her family’s other expenses,” Schloss wrote.

The Post reached out to Bryant and will update this post if we hear back.

However, it seems that Noah’s Popsicle debt has already been more than paid off. As of Wednesday morning, kind-hearted donors have already contributed a whopping $3,675, eclipsing the fundraising goal of $2,619.

“Thank you so much for your mind-blowing generosity,” wrote Noah’s grateful mother on the page. She added that the surplus donations will go towards education and additional supports for her son, who reportedly suffers from autism.

This isn’t the first time an opportunistic tyke has gone on a surreptitious spending spree. A Connecticut woman was apoplectic after her 6-year-old amassed over $16,000 in credit card charges for the video game, “Sonic Forces.”

Giant moth so chunky it struggles to fly discovered

Mothra surfaces in Australia.

An Australian worker realized every entomophobe’s worst nightmare after encountering a moth so huge that it struggled to fly.

The Mount Cotton State School in Queensland, where Mothra was discovered, shared a Facebook photo Sunday of the behemoth bug on the end of a saw blade.

It was reportedly the “size of two fists put together” according to the school’s principal, Meagan Steward, who said the mondo moth was released into the woods unharmed.

Queensland Museum entomologist Dr. Christine Lambkin has since identified the animatronic-evoking creature as a “wood moth,” a species that reportedly resides all along the Eastern coast of Australia. While not exceedingly rare, this chonky critter is not commonly sighted in the country, Lambkin told the Independent.

And it’s certainly not because it’s too small to spot. With a maximum weight of just over an ounce, the female wood moth frequently struggles to achieve liftoff — despite boasting a whopping 9-inch wingspan.

“They fly very, very poorly,” said Lambkin. “In most cases, when the females emerge, they just crawl up a tree or stump of a fence post and wait for the males to find them.”

Needless to say, fans on the Mount Cotton State School Facebook page were awestruck by the colossal creepy-crawly.

“Love it! Never leaving the windows open ever again though,” wrote one aghast gawker.

“We’ll just add it to the list of wildlife….wallabies, owls, snakes, echidnas, giant moth,” wrote another of Australia’s infamous plethora of unusual creatures. “Life is never dull at MCSS!”

One jokester quipped, “How cool. Gotta say if it flew near me while I was gardening I would probably do a karate freakout!”

Thankfully, wood moths don’t pose a threat to humans. Perhaps it could even help relieve this extra-shaggy Australian sheep of its 77 pounds of matted wool.
