Will the real author of the Fluffy Bunny plasma theme please stand up?

A while ago I saw some screenshots of a very hilarious KDE Plasma theme called Fluffy Bunny. I haven’t been able to find out who created it, I only found some packages for openSuse with no author attached to it. I find this theme so horribly wrong that it’s actually fun to use. The theme […]
