Hip's Top 5 Flamings of Frank, #4
"The Killer Bunnies, Episode IV"

The "Killer Bunnies" episodes provided one of the most difficult "shoots" of any episodes I created in 2008. Producing the set took so much effort (figuring out the best seating arrangement for the players, how many players to have, limiting the cards to just the first two decks, dealing the cards, fabricating the many drinks on the table, etc.) that I realized I needed to milk it for as many episodes as possible. More importantly, I realized I wouldn't get any second takes for these pictures once I broke down my set. As such, I stayed up until after two in the morning and spent more than four hours taking 124 pictures just for those four episodes.
Just as humorous is that you can find a reference to me, Frank and the others getting together to play "Killer Bunnies" in an episode posted three months prior.
I should add that "Killer Bunnies" is an actual card game. My wife and I still get together every month or so with two other couples who are good friends of ours just to play "Killer Bunnies." Our last Killer Bunnies night, we finally added in the final deck.
