If you were alive and had access to the Internet a few years ago, someone probably sent you an annoying, yet utterly mesmerizing, Flash animation starring dancing badgers, a mushroom, and a snake slithering across the desert. The badger video has spawned countless imitations since it was released, driving legions of hapless Internet trawlers insane with its infuriating refrain. Well, those punk-rock, hopelessly in-touch trendsters over in PETA's youth division, peta2, recently put together their own little tribute to the badger phenomenon, featuring peta2's own Nugget, a KFC box with an X through it, and a friendly asparagus character instead of the snake. I'd love to show you the Nugget video now, but its release last week caused such an uproar over at Badger HQ in London, that we decided to take it down rather than anger the powerful British badger interests even more. I would have been kind of pissed at them about the whole thing (I really liked the parody peta2 made), if it weren't for this video that they put together to document the whole saga. If you're going to be this hilarious about it, badger dudes, how can I be mad atcha?

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
