Used to describe rabbits, although we will never know whether the phrase has any significance whatsoever, or whether it is simply a drunken outburst.
Used by Father Jack Hackett (played by Frank Kelly) in the comedy "Father Ted" to describe a plague of rabbits that has descended on the household. In a scene, Jack wakes up to see the room full of rabbits and looking what is a mixture of surprised, shocked and angry mutters Hairy Japanese Bastards!. It must be remembered that Jack is almost constantly under strong influence of alcohol.
