Okay so, I am going to try something a little different tonight for the Water Cooler. Below is the video for the Badger Song. It is very odd. However odd is good.

Now that you’ve seen it, what do you think it means? Of course you could cop out with “it means someone had way to much freaking time on their hands” or some such, but we are Firedogs here and we set a higher standard than that.

So, what is the meaning of this piece of ….Art.

Since it is my game, I guess I am obliged to give my interpretation. Really it is very simple, it is obviously a story from the 1980’s when the Soviets had the Badger bombers in service. You see, badger, badger, badger, then mushroom is these planes on their way to drop nuclear bombs.

Yes, I hear you out there say “okay smart guy, what about the Snake?”. It is simplicity itself, gentle reader! The snake is the opposing forces interceptors. You see the snake comes by with Ahhh! Snake! Showing that it is a nasty surprise for the Badgers.

There you have it, a dark tale of nuclear annihilation disguised as a kiddy cartoon How insidious! (wow, that was a little dark for me, hmmm)

So, that is my idea about what the Badger Song is all about, what is yours Firedogs? The floor is yours.
