Jackals must have a good collective bargaining agreement, what with all the free mice.

The Crack Emcee said...

That was excellent.

shoutingthomas said...

The narrator is so Gay!

The predatory badger is a Republican.

All those loafers who scavenge off the badger's kill are Wisconsin Democrats.

The ones just waiting around for the scraps after the badger does all the work are Madison teachers.

I would pay good money to see a nature show done in this format.

"It's pretty bad ass." Agreed.

shoutingthomas said...

Well, yeah, it's bad ass, but bad ass is necessary in life.

We haven't yet advanced to the great Utopia where everybody in the animal kingdom can be a vegetarian performance artist with a grant from a non-profit dedicated to Saving the World.

So, somebody's got to do the dirty work and actually hunt and kill.

We can only afford so many parasitical scavengers.

Like Wisconsin public employees.

Rick Caird said...

I hope the honey badger was not meant as a metaphor for the public employee unions. I would hate to see them get back up off the ground after being bitten.

Walker has been walking around Bucky's den for a while. He stuck his finger in it and got it promptly snapped off. Don't fuck with Bucky.

You've got it backwards, garbage.

First, Walker is the badger.

Second, the public employees are the parasites and scavengers.

Like you.

Hahaha.......

Allegory of our times.

Thanks stoopid.

When I saw the words "honey" and "badger" together I thought the video was about a married couple.

garage mahal said...

What are you drinking this morning thomas? Gin and tonic? Jack and Coke?

John Burgess said...

I was expecting something on honey pots or the badger game. Neither ensued. I'm bad.

Martin L. Shoemaker said...

Ah, ah, ah, John Burgess... You won't catch me that easily. I learned my lesson last week with "scub": never google the new terms I hear at Althouse. Especially not before breakfast,

First, shout is right about Walker being the badger, symbolically as well as literally.

More to the point, the union is biting off its own finger with its 60s campus commando behavior, replete with Saturday fraud-in.

The bulk of support is on Walker's side, nationally and in WI.

PS Whatever garage is drinking, it's time to hit the Perrier.

knox said...

LMAO!!

"Oh they're so nassty."

Indeed.

Reminds me of a news story I read today about Lady Gaga's latest performance (in New Jersey). The review also mentioned the Scissors Sisters (who I presumed are touring with Lady Gaga). From the article:
The seven-piece act knows the exact dimensions of their pigeonhole. Singer Ana Matronic told audience members that if they hadn’t heard of the band, they probably were neither gay nor British.

Growing up (and for my kids also) "cool" was stuff that black folk liked (i.e. R&B). I guess its now stuff gay people like.

Haha. Keep telling yourself that if it helps you get through the day. The two polls I've seen show the opposite.

edutcher said...

Gotta get off DU and Kos, garage.

I didn't know that Titus got a job narrating nature videos?

Must be a well-paying gig.

Lucien said...

A new banner for Althouse:

"If you're a nastyass Honey Badger, nobody cares what kind of box wine you drink."

mc said...

Very funny stuff.

Does the crack spider have to have multiple guns for each of it's 8 limbs instead of high capacity magazines as Wright would have it?

Largo said...

Oh, hi mc! I was intending to address Crack Emcee with the 'Crack Spider', but I'm glad that you like it! I will have to pay more attention to handles around here.

I grew up with these 'Hinterland' videos in my youth. There are quite a few parodies out there, but Mr. Crack Spider is the best!
