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.

The ignorance of the citizens of that area because of the bainwashing by the Jihadists is amazing. I remember when the trailer for Superman Returns was shown and a mass panic went out because many of the citizens believed that an American Superman had been unleashed over Iraq.

Are honey badgers kind of like honey Pooh Bears?

That would be just like the British to unleash a plague of confused, Zen-spouting bears upon the Iraqi people.

I mean, they've done it before, haven't they?

Well, apparently they can be quite feroicious, but they are an object of affection in this country. Bit like Winnie the Pooh. Although we all know that real Bears are actually quite scary too!

Wait, are describing me? Or, Pooh Bear?


I know I'm an asshole, and all, but I'd swear you're describing me.
