As a little runt in the late '80s, I owned a rabbit's foot keychain. And really, didn't everyone? Back then, lucky bunny body parts were still a genuine fixture of pop culture. Today though, the hallowed tradition of carrying a severed rodent's leg on your person as some sort of amulet against evil mojo seems to be in serious decline. It's a shame. And personally, I blame PETA and Bunny Lovers magazine for needlessly destroying an ancient tradition while decimating the novelty keychain industry in the process.
