Also, an experiment in sequential art without panel frame borders
Panel 1: “I’m Bun Costas and welcome to the first quadrennial Bunlympics! 2040” Bun Costas is a Holland lop rabbit with a suit, tie and toupee, holding a microphone.
Panel 2: He continues, and we see a female bun gymnast posing as she triumphantly lands after vaulting. “Today we’ll cover: bun gymnastics, the high hop event, with the minimum qualifying jump 50 meters,”
Panel 3: We see a bun leaping through the air, rising above a high bar that is higher than the arena.
Panel 4: “and of course, the great General Lepidus himself is expected to medal in all the equestrian events, including dressage.” Bun Costas concludes. We see Lepidus in his usual toga of rich red and white fabric, high in the saddle, sternly holding the reins of his majestic gray-white steed as the horse performs the precise footwork of their dressage/dance routine.

Note: Wikipedia explains that: “Dressage is occasionally referred to as ‘Horse Ballet.’ Although the discipline has ancient roots in Europe, dressage was first recognized as an important equestrian pursuit during the Renaissance. The great European riding masters of that period developed a sequential training system that has changed little since then.”
