Joe has posted up on his blog about being obsessed with badgers: he seems to find that it is a self-fulfilling prophecy, and that the more people thing he’s obsessed with badgers, the more he convinces himself he is obsessed with badgers, the more he talks about them… and so on.
I suggest that to combat this obsession he grows a beard, dons tweed hat and coat, gains a west country accent and an incurable cough.
That’s right, folks, joe should become Bob Fleming of “Badger Watch” fame (c.f.: the Fast Show). The shame of being like Bob Fleming should cure anyone’s badger obsession for ever… apart from maybe Bob Fleming, that is.
