When comedian Joel McHale and his family welcomed two innocent and cuddly male bunny rabbits into their home as pets, they assumed there would be no harm in them spending the night in the same cage.

"We knew nothing could happen," Joel explains, alluding to the fact that it there wasn't a female involved, "unless there was some sort of miracle."

But while the little guys didn't multiply, something did -- in fact -- happen.

When one of the bunnies started getting sores on his back, Joel took him to the vet -- and let’s just say that he was less than prepared for the diagnosis.

As it turns out, one of the rabbits had bitten off one of the other's *you know what.* (Hint: It was one of two!)


As you can imagine, Joel was a little dumbfounded (so was Rach, when he started telling her this story...) But that didn’t stop him from cracking jokes, of course!

"This can happen when males get together," the vet told the former "The Soup" host.

Joel's response? "I was like, 'Yes, I've been in college.'"


All kidding aside, the injured little guy now has his own cage. Phew!

(We can only assume this story will make its way into one of his shows ...)
