Posters for the new Wallace and Gromit film on a south coast island will not feature the word "rabbit" because of a local superstition.

Because burrowing can cause landslips in quarries, residents of Portland, Dorset, instead call the creatures underground mutton or furry things.

Posters for the new film, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, on Portland do not use the word, to respect local folklore.

"The Curse of the Furry Things".
That could work.

I'm mainly laughing because my mental picture is of Tubbs from League of Gentlemen talking about underground mutton and her furry things...

You can't post the same identical thing with less than a 6 minute gap - forum science courtesy of Venom

But what a rare discovery we have here now. A 6 minute double post courtesy of the 6 minute barrier? Interesting indeed.

I opened this thinking you'd changed the band name.
