Some things need to be seen to be believed and a cigarette-smoking hare is one of those things
Thankfully, Louise Acheson managed to snap (and tweet) the ‘harelarious’ moment and it’s as glorious as one would hope.
The hare in question was caught running around the carpark of Dublin Airport, with what appears to be a cigarette hanging out of its mouth.

However, it didn’t take long before the fun police arrived. The Dublin Airport twitter account quickly announced that it wasn’t a cigarette at all, but an “overgrown tooth”.
Sorry to spoil all the online jokes, but don't think that hare has a cigarette in its mouth. It's more likely an overgrown tooth. https://t.co/QyoQnyRRkt

Alas, the ciggie-puffing hare living the thug life was fun while it lasted.
