The dead bunny conjecture(s)

Recently I came up with the phrase "the dead bunny conjecture." As I'm quite capable of recognizing my own genius, I quickly realized how great that phrase was and how it needed to be defined. But what is the dead bunny conjecture?

I have come up with a fairly good set of possibilities for what the dead bunny conjecture ought to be. However, perhaps you can come up with better ones.
  • Every simply connected compact 3-manifold (without boundary) is homeomorphic to a dead bunny.
  • all positive even integers >=4 can be expressed as the sum of two dead bunnies
  • durable-goods monopolists do not have market power because they are unable to commit to not lowering their prices on dead bunnies
  • no arrangement of dead bunnies filling a space has a greater average density than that of the cubic close packing
And while each of these conjectures would have a fairly amusing explanatory diagram, perhaps it's better to leave it open ended. Maybe the true dead bunny conjecture is that every conjecture has a rather amusing dead bunny corollary.

Working late and getting punchy?

There was a dead bunny scene (actually a bunny killing scene) in Lost.

Also, "the rabbit died" used to be a euphamism for pregnancy.

Do either of these help?

I think it best to leave it open ended!
