I found those too — but wasn't the word listed in the same section as 
(or soon after) the as-close-as-we've-ever-gotten-to-genitalia words in

referred to. 

I don't remember there being a rabbit chess meme — more likely than not,
this is probably just an instance of the "every sort of cute picture
involving cute animals has probably been taken enough times to get
plenty of Google hits" phenomenon. But you might want to ask someone
