Badger Parade!

This is why I love the English. Only those wacky Brits could turn an animal’s rights protest into a dramatic spectacle that ended with ladies chasing far-right extremists away from a hate rally. While dressed as badgers. 

The badger brigade (led, oddly enough, by the guitarist from Queen) crashed a political clash between the right-wing British National Party (BNP) and left-wing groups such as Hope Not Hate to protest a government-sponsored cull on badgers. The costumed gatecrashers completely took over the rally, and ended up chasing the right-wing protesters away, leaving one right-wing asshat with a bloody nose. All while  — and I cannot stress this point enough — dressed as freaking BADGERS.

Simultaneously routing evil, protecting wildlife, and dressing up in provocative badger costumes. Multi-tasking, bitches! 

(This post is dedicated to my favorite badger, Captain Stubing, from The Salton Sea.)

    Badgers? Huh. Leave it to the Brits to get the animal suits wrong.

    The only way it would have been better is if they were doing the ‘Badger Mushroom Snaaaake’ song/dance at the same time.

    Ha! That would have been hilarious. The politician they beat up could have been the snake. 🙂
