    LOL! "If you cornered it and poked it with a stick, then the smart money would be on the badger," :D

    find it somewhat humourous the number of people who claim to have shot one but missed :)

    Intelligence reports suggest this might be a covert operation ... and they are well dug-in :oops:

    Colonel Meles and Major Stripe of the Duke of Wellingtons First of Paw.
    Formed during the Peninsula war when a group of patriotic badgers gave invaluable assistance to the Duke of Wellington who had become trapped in an underground brothel.
    The regiment saw service in the Crimea, India and the Boer War before scandal struck during World War I. Confused by the bright lights and noise of the overhead barrage, a platoon of badgers mistakenly laid mines under their own mess in Mons. The subsequent flying badgers were taken for angels by the battle-wearied and possibly hallucinatory soldiery.
    World War II saw the First of Paw (the "Stripey Fleabags") back in action again, this time tunneling in and out of Colditz. It is a little known fact that Col. Airey Neave disguised himself as a badger during his famous escape.
    Attempts to utilise the Fleabags in Northern Ireland came to an abrupt end when one soldier, Pte. Furry, enraged at the stalemate, bit the Rev. Ian Paisley on the bum.
    The presence of the Fleabags in Iraq has been a heavily-guarded secret until now.

    If he gets wounded, who's going to play the Audie Murphy role in "The Red Badger of Courage"?

    S'funny. Even though they're an indigenous species, some locals have been accusing the yanks and brits of importing them!

    Surely this is nonsense. I have it on good authority that these little blighters have been etablishing themselves in the Basra underground for years....

    They used to think our military secrets were being given away by a mole in MI5. How wrong they were......
