Well, wouldn’t you know it. Earth Day is upon us and, just as I feared, my terrible memory has left me almost totally unprepared. Fortunately, my good buddy Jo Bryant has done a beautiful post that included this wonderful clip I had previously searched for but could not find:
That clip is from the incredible Honey Badgers: Masters of Mayhem program I saw on PBS a couple of months back. That little guy (Stoffel?) was a total badass that wouldn’t back down from even the most dangerous animals – even breaking into a fenced off lion section just to pick a fight (that he barely survived) at one point! But that didn’t stop him – he went on to prove, once and for all, that Honey Badgers are absolutely deserving of their reputation as one of the most relentless and fearless little animals in the world. Thanks Jo!
Anyway, because it’s been playing in my head for days, and because Earth Day is one of the few days in the year that I actually want to belong to a larger community (although any group that would have me as a member would have to be one motley crew indeed), I present “Home Sweet Home” by Mötley Crüe:
Happy Earth Day my friends! See what others are doing to maintain our “Home Sweet Home” at Earthday.org.
I want ice water.
