Hold on to your Badger!

The weirdest thing I've read in quite a while comes all the way from Buckinghamshire in the UK, where they seem to be having some sort of problem with disabled wildlife. It seems the problem became so intense that the Wycombe District Council felt the need to erect a sign in a multi level car park instructing “disabled badger holders” to park on level 1.

Whilst some may find this confusing, the holding of disabled Badgers is really a more common pastime than you might think. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve asked a new acquaintance what they do for kicks and they’ve responded with “Oh lots of things but what I really enjoy doing is driving around holding Badgers with various forms of acquired and congenital disabilities while I search for a car park. You should try it, it’s just great!’

Check out the sign for yourself right here.
And while you’re at it, see if you can spot a second typo on the sign – it’s a corker!
