|Remember Frutopia, anybody?

This was actually the first thought in my mind when I woke up the other day. To be fair, I had been thinking it before, but then it just kind of recycled itself to the front of my mind and I woke up like, "FRUTOPIA! Where is it?"
2. (or, 1, I guess, but then I get into the Roddy Doyle system of numbering) I saw a rabbit on a leash today in Bryant Park. There was a little cup of lettuce and shredded carrots next to it too. I think everyone in the general vacinity was trying not to stare, especially since this couple obviously regarded this rabbit as a member of the family. They had an air about them, probably their talking so earnestly to each other and not bothering to stroke or otherwise acknowledge the tethered rabbit, that seemed like forced normalcy. Almost like they were waiting for someone to inquire about their pet so that they could be like, "Do you have a problem with that?" Sadly, for the first split-second I saw it, I thought, "that's a fucked-up dog."
3. What movie/book/tv show/other pop culture reference where some guy sells doors, door-to-door? I've googled it and can't find it, but I did find a real account of a guy who did that. Pretty amusing. If this isn't from anything, I claim rights to it.
4. I wonder what would happen if you went up to someone in a Free Tibet shirt and said, "Now I'm pissed. I paid way too much for mine." This is another thing that I'm not sure I made up or heard somewhere. Could someone enlighten me, please?
5. If you listen to the song "Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You" and replace 'baby' with 'Jesus' it's quite amusing. I actually did this for the first time last summer but it never fails to entertain me for about 5 seconds.
6. Today at work, I replaced an empty toilet paper roll somewhere between 11:15 and 11:45. I went to the bathroom somewhere between 3 and 4:30 later and the roll was nearly used up. I think there's a toilet gnome in our office. That is a more logical explanation to me than believing that five people (I discount myself, since that was only the second time I went to the bathroom that day) could have used up nearly an entire roll of toilet paper in under five hours. Should I be concerned about this? I sort of am, especially since I'm supposed to restock the bathroom and I might have to do it every damn day now. And, as a lowly intern, I can hardly say, "one square apiece, please, unless it's an emergency. Let's be green, ladies."
