I was always scared with my mother's obsession with the good scissors. It made me wonder if there were evil scissors lurking in the house somewhere.

Posted:Well.. maybe badgers are.. symbolic of.. modern society! and the spoon must be the spoon of rampant cultural imperialism, making the poking the degradation of the human spirit.

man the internet is deep.

perhaps that's why eddie izzard said it was an original sin

Posted:i say there's no such thing as original sin nowdays - you can pretty much guarantee that whatever you do, its probably already been done by somebody somewhere else.

like they said on that video - "ain't nobody here invented a move - we're just manifesting shit at a different time".

i don't even like apples. or badgers...

badgers? BADGERS?! WE DON'T NEED NO STINKING BADGERS!!

Personally i think anyone under 30 is young, and i'm pretty sure in a few years i'll think everyone under 35 is young. But I can't blag 22 as being young when i get told off for something

Posted:LOL What a response! I'm so glad enough of you cared enough to give it a try *sniff* Stebbins, are you alright? did you get away?
Keep 'em coming people, i'm sure we can find the right answer between us!!

Really, I'm waiting for Shadowsteppin and Firekitty to put in their 2c worth.... guys?
According to the strangest thing that ever happened to you thread , Eera was once chased down the high street in Clapham by a badger, to which shadow steppin replied: quote: did you try poking it with a spoon? . In the same thread, i would also like to refer you to firekitty's sig: "-poke badgers with spoons!~" It seems as if these people are in the know!

and b) you can't excuse genetics - just gotta live with the silly gene i gave up long ago - better things to worry about!

as to badger poking it is worrying, but small mammal abuse is traditional i understand - badgers just get the sharp end
