If symptoms persist, call a doctor. If they continue to persist, call a lawyer; constitutional lawyers are preferred unless you have a weak constitution.

If none of these are available, or if symptoms still persist, try eating unbuttered toast until it’s the Sunday of the week before Election Day in Canada.

It may be best to keep things like that to yourself. If you yourself are contacted by a giant rabbit, or any giant version of a small herbivorous mammal, do not respond unless you are fluent in Mongolian. Side effects also include fluency in central Asian languages. This is unusual, but should not cause any problems, except in very rare cases; even then, the situation will be amusing to everyone involved, even the sufferer, who will find it all very funny at some later point in their lives, if they live so long.
