The (white) bunny is caged-up and we, the viewers,
are privy to its inner-thoughts and feelings.  The
bunny articulates a double-edged sword: for it can
neither fuck something nor blow its head off.  It
seems stuck in capitalistic purgatory. 

The (innocent) girl finds the bunny cute, however
unwittingly, and insists upon banging on the glass in
spite of the directions not to.  Her one-dimensional,
self-aggrandizing and consumer-oriented person is
sickening. 

If anything, this cartoon is an excellent
representation of Marx’s concept of Commodity
Fetishism.
