Pinky, Gulliver's Bunny Friend

From Ananova comes news of a 200-foot-long toy rabbit, knitted by dozens of grannies out of pink wool. The giant bunny lies on the side of the 5,000 foot high Colletto Fava mountain in northern Italy's Piedmont region.

Designed by Viennese art group Gelatin, the bunny is "supposed to make you feel small, like Gulliver. You walk around it and you can't help but smile."

The giant rabbit is expected to remain on the mountain until 2025, at which time, it will be put into a giant washer and then dried in a giant dryer, where it will shrink to about 12 inches.
