I have mentioned Roman’s television habits many times on my blog.

It is no secret that he is a fan of wrestling – as is Claire. Personally, I can’t stand it. Our house rabbit also enjoys football – not that there has been any to watch lately.

Like in many households across the country, our TV has been on a lot more than it normally would be. As Roman’s run is situated immediately below our massive screen, it must be like being sat on the front row at a cinema – apart from the absence of screaming kids and drunk teenagers.

Roman’s favourite television programme is arguably Keeping Up Appearances. Even if our bunny was to be throwing a huge tantrum, the antics of Mrs. Bucket and her long-suffering husband have been known to appease an angry rabbit.

The latest sitcom to be added to Roman’s TV favourites is The Vicar of Dibley. He will plonk himself in front of the box and happily watch episode after episode. No doubt he has become familiar with all the usual characters – Alice, Hugo and the “No, no, no, no” man.

It is reassuring how our fluffy boy only enjoys what I describe as ‘nice’ comedies. Nothing  nasty ever happens to Hyacinth or in Dibley.

I have wondered if this light-hearted television is what causes Roman to drift off into tranquility, or his ability to relax in front of certain programmes is simply down to good old familiarity.

There are many occasions in which we need to calm Roman down for his own safety! While he gets petrified by the most trivial of things – doors opening, Claire walking down the stairs, cooking anything containing garlic – he is totally blasé to things which could cause him real harm. In fact, he lists his hobbies as jumping from heights and dining upon the finest quality carpet.

If Claire and I enjoyed sick horror movies and regularly watched the likes of Saw and Human Centipede, would the scenes of torture and excessive gore cause Romy to relax in the same way?

Unless I uncover an unreleased episode of Keeping Up Appearances, where Richard Bucket finally snaps and goes on a killing spree, we will never know if the bunny holds a secret fondness for video nasties.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
