Must Be Related To A Bad A** Honey Badger

The little pond across the street from my house is a source of endless fascination for me. I'm a water girl. I LOVE the ocean but I'll placate myself with a lake, pond, stream or large puddle if I can find one, so the little pond with its cat tails, ducks and geese  fits the bill nicely.  This morning while Ben and I were out for our morning constitutional, I stood for a minute and watched two ducks paddling around near the far shore.  They paddled to the edge and  then hopped up into the grass. Suddenly, there was a flurry of activity as they ran all around then then flew back into the water. Apparently the spot they had chosen to come ashore was where the resident muskrat was working on his new digs.  He chased them all over the place until he got them out of his neighborhood and back in the water. It was hysterical. I've never seen anything like it before. The ducks were totally shocked, feathers flying, and quacking their heads off in a manner that sounded like 'Ohcrapohcrapohcrap', and the muskrat was clearly PEEVED.  He kept chasing them in circles long after they were away from his new home.  All I could think was that he must be closely related to the Bad Ass Honey Badger. If you haven't seen this video on the Bad A** Honey Badger, you NEED to. Click HERE!  Honey Badgers (and muskrats apparently) are just CRAAAAAZY!)

LOL! Since the darn things seem to be pretty bloody carnivorous and fearless, I hope you are NOT related to a honey badger; I want to meet you sometime and NOT as the main course at dinner! *G*

that honey badger video is just plain silliness! Sorry about Bennie, hope it turns out to be something simple (and cheap)
