Blair's Badgers

Aww, cute (evil) bastard

British forces have denied rumours that they released a plague of ferocious badgers into the Iraqi city of Basra.

Word spread among the populace that UK troops had introduced strange man-eating, bear-like beasts into the area to sow panic.

But several of the creatures, caught and killed by local farmers, have been identified by experts as honey badgers.

The rumours spread because the animals had appeared near the British base at Basra airport.

UK military spokesman Major Mike Shearer said: "We can categorically state that we have not released man-eating badgers into the area.

    Thanks. I think you may have a point. I suggest we open up many (heavily armed) pubs all around the middle east and encourage light heartedness.

    No, because that area was covered by the surveilance squirrels.

    The good burghers of Hartlepool may have become infamous for executing a monkey for espionage, but I for one am never going to laugh at them again.

    I'm just grateful not to be related in any way to any Iranians. The squirrels probably feel the same way. How galling to be arrested by forces responsible to a president who looks suspiciously like a monkey, and behaves like a whole box of monkeys.

    Maybe once you know that you are nuts, you realise how much you need to eliminate your only predator.

    S Nutkin.

    Excuse me, but these are now Brown's Badgers, and he will do whatever he likes with them. Rumors abound that he will let them loose in the office of Ken Livingstone.
