Welcome to We Are All Badgers - the UK's favourite Slightly-Badger-Related Comedy Site as voted by readers of What Slightly-Badger-Related Comedy Site? magazine. Peruse these pages for stories, games, quizzes, competitions and, coming soon, prizes!
Celebrity badger the Big Cheese Badger runs We Are All Badgers with his paw picked team and he works in close partnership with his colleague and alter ego, Jobson Jobsworth. Jobson is our resident job-seeking expert and the proud winner of the Jobseeker of the Year award, twenty-five years running. Sometimes Big Cheese and Jobson work themselves to the bone writing comedy job applications every afternoon between ten-past-two and quarter-to-three. And sometimes they argue, which is worrying.
There's a serious side to the Big Cheese Badger too, as he harbours ambitions of achieving fundamental social change through the medium of politics; that's why he formed the Badger Party, the UK's only underground political party, to give him the platform to campaign for the issues that really matter to people, like renaming beans on toast to toast under beans and free Bavarian apple strudels for under 5s.

New from the We Are All Badgers shop: buy the hilariously funny joke corner to confuse your friends and bemuse your enemies. Simply place the joke corner in the centre of a room and wait for your chosen victim to enter then watch their understanding of three-dimensional space disappear before your very eyes. They'll be researching n-dimensional space before you can say "is the temporal dimension unaffected?"

If so, DO NOT BE ALARMED - they are merely partaking in the new sport of grey squirrel hunting!

No More Toilet Shortages!
The Great Toilet Shortage of 1985 saw the horrific consequences of a rising population in a country with a severe lack of toilet facilities. These days we take it for granted that everyone has access to a good quality poopary but it was a different world back then when the sudden shortage resulted in honest, hardworking citizens having to poop in a bucket or in their breakfast bowl or sometimes even in the toaster. Disposing of it afterwards was also a major problem, with an estimated 90% of the population at any one time carrying excrement around in their pockets until they could find a vacant toilet to dispose of it. If you've ever found poop in an old charity shop trouser pocket then now you know why.
So to prevent this crisis from ever happening again, We Are All Badgers has come up with a simple yet effective solution - but we need your help! We need every concerned and capable adult to add an "i" to every "To Let" sign they can find thereby creating millions of brand-new toilets instantly! And feel free to try out your new toilet as the presence of poop will encourage others to do the same. Act now before it's too late! Or should we say tooilate?
The Origin of the Word "Badger"
The word 'badger' is derived from the Latin verb 'badgia', meaning 'to badger', and found its way into the English language by hot-air balloon in the early 2nd Century. The hot-air balloon crash-landed in a forest due to the embarrassing realisation that it hadn't been invented yet. The wreckage was found by Brenda, a member of a race of black and white nocturnal mammals called twonks, and she rescued the injured word and nursed it back to health. The word was so grateful for her kindness that it offered itself as a name for Brenda's race - and so the twonks became the now excellently named badgers!
Badgers have since become the envy of all races because of their great name. Humans, with their boring name, have been especially jealous and have tried numerous times to steal the name for themselves. The most recent was the attempted extermination of all badgers under the guise of a supposed "TB cull". This attempt failed and so the badgers are still badgers and the humans are still stupid.
There are still some nice, non-murderous humans around that are happy to live side-by-side with the badgers and, together with the Big Cheese Badger, they have come up with a plan to suit all parties: badgers get to keep their name and humans get to say the word "badger" more often. The idea is that the word badger can replace any word as long as the meaning is still understood. Such as "brrr, it's badger!" when you are shivering with cold. Or "pass me the badger" when you are reaching for the tv remote. So maybe there is still hope for badger-human co-existence after all? We badger hope so!
