Do you want to be a badger?

If you see a short, stocky animal with a small face staggering around in the grasslands, it could be a badger.

Or it could just be a pissed dwarf.

"Believe it or not, the dirt inside the den keeps the badger insulated under the ground." Yep, that's my excuse, and I'm sticking to it.

I'm assuming 'brats' are bratwurst and not unruly children. Not that badgers eat either, but you could always threaten your children with them anyway.

I believe that I am morally obliged at this point to link to http://www.whatbadgerseat.com/

Why don't I get a chance to feed the badger anything it likes except a woodpecker?

Oh is that what 'brats' are. I thought they were some kind of weird Merkin food I'd never heard of.

"Don't hit your sister or the badgers will eat you." Yeah, I like that as a threat.

No badgers today (though I did see a book about badgers on Shipley market, if you'd like it) but what I did see this afternoon was a little WEASEL running across the A650 in broad daylight! Aaaaaaaah....

Awwww. Was it weaselly recognised? <grin>

And what sort of book about badgers? (And how much is it?) I'm always up for books about badgers, but if it's the Pelican one by Ernest Neal I already have two copies...

I just ordered a book called "A Lifetime of Badgers" off eBay. :)

(Badger badger badger! Sorry but it's just such a good word.)

I've a feeling "dirt" is just being used in the American sense of "earth or soil"....
