Fact of the Day: Carter Rabbit

During 1979 President Jimmy Carter went on a solo fishing trip in his home-state of Georgia. An enraged swamp rabbit swam towards his boat where Carter managed to deter it away. While Carter had been concerned while he was on the boat, the event became a laughing stock with many jokes and parodies to emerge later.

    Georgia of course. That's more creepy than funny to me!

  3. Poor old Peanut Farmer Jimmy. Even the swamp rabbits were against him.
    I hope Georgia keeps these strange creatures well and truly within the boundary lines of the state.
    Strange on many trips to Georgia, I never heard of this animal species. Maybe my friends thought I'd think they were "crackers"???

  5. I do remember this incident, but I don't recall Carter being alone. It was thought the rabbit might be rabid and I never thought it funny.
