Oolong the rabbit was cute.  Ridiculously cute.  He also happened to be rather good at balancing inanimate objects on his head.  That’s why he became an internet sensation, after his owner began publishing photos of his amazingy furryness back in 1999.

Sadly you may notice we speak in past tense, as Oolong passed away in 2003.  But if you remember Oolong (and if you’ve had anything to do with the internet that isn’t porn, you probably do), you can now cherish his life and waffle-balancing adventures in a new book called In Almost Every Picture #8.  It’s a beautiful, 144-page photography book, featuring Oolong in all of his flat headed glory.  From bananas to teapots – there was nothing that little guy couldn’t handle.

Oolong’s owner, Hironori Akutagawa, now has a new rabbit, and is teaching it the ways of Oolong’s many balancing talents.  But nothing can really replace Oolong.  He will always remain dear in our hearts.

Rest in peace, furry flat-headed dude.

P.S. If you can get through The Telegraph’s entire Oolong gallery without getting the sniffles, then you are COLD AND DEAD INSIDE.
