Dear local MP (sorry, I don't know your name and I can't be bothered to find out),

Re: Campaign To Make National Badger Day A Public Holiday

I wish to bring to your attention growing concerns from the British public regarding the current status of National Badger Day, held annually on 6th October. This important day in our calendar does not currently have national holiday status and this oversight needs to be urgently addressed. This is why I have joined the Campaign To Make National Badger Day A Public Holiday, or CTMNBDAPH for short.

Our beloved National Badger Day is an opportunity for everyone to learn about badgers, take part in badger-related activities and even pretend they are a badger by digging holes in their neighbour's lawn. But sadly not everyone is able to take full advantage of the day because respectable people have to go to work and only jobless people, like that idiot Jobson Jobsworth, are free all day to celebrate it.

In a recent imaginary poll National Badger Day was voted the country's favourite day, beating even Christmas Day to the top spot. So why does Christmas Day enjoy holiday status and National Badger Day does not? Data released by the Office for National Badger-Related Statistics (ONBRS) shows that 6th October, National Badger Day, is the day when most people take the day off work. Coincidence? I think not.

The CTMNBDAPH was founded by the Big Cheese of We Are All Badgers, the Big Cheese Badger, and he campaigns tirelessly to put right this terrible wrong. He has even raised the matter in Parliament several times, after he manages to sneak in with his fake ID pretending to be an MP for the Badger Party, but the Prime Minister repeatedly ignores his pleas and changes the subject to things like how to deal with recessions or how to end global wars. Her attitude is unacceptable.

So join the CTMNBDAPH and add your voice to the growing masses. You can make a difference, you can make the Prime Minister listen to sense and you can make some more fake MP ID for the Big Cheese Badger.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,


A concerned citizen (sorry, I don't know my name and I can't be bothered to find out)


PS - Note that CTMNBDAPH is an acronym, not an abbreviation, so should be pronounced accordingly.

PPS - Also, the T is silent.
