You folks think you’re so clever. You think that if you just shove a couple Web-friendly characters into your ads for pistachios (pistachios?) that time-strapped bloggers will dutifully click over to YouTube, grab the embed codes and slap up a post, don’t you?

Alas, though the pistachio folks have sent out a press release promising an ad with the Honey Badger, the profane weasel adored by most of the Twitter staff (and many others), it doesn’t seem to be online yet. So we can’t give them free advertising!

But this does provide us with a good reason to embed the original badger himself. NSFW if your work doesn’t like hilarious obscenity and/or animals eating each other.
