Plaster badger


Out drinkin’ with the neighbors tonight. The plaster badger is from last week’s show — actually, being the perpetual designated driver, Onkle B has been very abstemious tonight.

Not me. Goodnight!

See you back here tomorrow, 6 WBT for Dead Pool Round 97.

Yes, please note: it is THE WEASEL what is plastered tonight. I am sitting here sober.

Plastered Badger : Bar Mascot or the name of the bar?

I want a plaster badger. Or a plastic weasel for that matter. Far superior to a plaster deer. Stoaty? You have a store 🙂
(plastic would be ok, too.)

So…. Question:
Did you two ride bicycles to the neighbor’s or take a mechanized conveyance?
BTW, I’m looking forward to years of German and French grovelling to get President Donald Trump to sign a “Climate Change Accord” with either of them. EU can pound sand; it will never get an accord. By 2024, the world will have changed so much that any leftist that even hints at “climate change” will bring howls from the American middle class.
You know damn well that Her Thighness would have had that thing signed, sealed and cratering the American economy well before now because she is NUTS!

I think that “The Plastered Badger” may be the finest name for a bar that I have ever heard.

Now I know the theme that I shall request for the small original drawing (on paper suffused with elephant shit particles) that will accompany any future Official Certificate of Dick Winning that I am fortunate enough to acquire.

Kipling would surely have used the phrase “plaster badger” in the poem “Tommy” instead of “plaster saints”.

Except there are no words in the English language that rhyme with “Badger”.

Sure there are. Cadger, as in one who cadges. And nadger, as in “I hoofed him a thrupenny one right in the nadgers. That’ll learn ‘im, the toerag.”

@David Gillies –
bravo! once more demonstrating why everyone should visit sweasel.com!

but I don’t think “nadger” was available to Kipling as the officials indicate it’s more recent than the 1890 period (though certainly a word one would hear in barracks).
Cadger on the other hand appears to be quite old!

FYI – The OED’s earliest quotation for “cadger” is from 1450; for “nadger” it’s 1956.

I couldn’t find a plaster badger online, but I did find badger plasters. Aww, cute. Now I have to figure out who Mr. Badger is. I’ve no idea, even though there’s a ton of Mr. Badger (and Rusty the Fox) stuff out there.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
