20 April - Attack Rabbits

On this day in 1979, President Jimmy Carter was attacked by a swimming rabbit on a canoe trip in Plains, Georgia.

[Okay, so the rabbit was being pursued by hounds, and was obviously quite frightened, and was making for the only dry thing in the middle of the water (the president's boat).  "Frightened, hunted rabbit" doesn't make headlines.   "ATTACK RABBIT!!!!" does.]

 If only his Secret Service agents had the Holy Hand-Grenade of Antioch with them.

"O Lord, bless this Thy hand grenade, that with it Thou mayst blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy."
