Bring Back Foxhunting

Rah rah rah and yah boo sucks to Tony Blair.

The government bans fox hunting, my family and I go away for 10 days and then what happens? A fox creeps into our garden and tucks into our hens. Can't believe it. Where are we to get our eggs from now? Oh. Right. The shop. Well, there were five of them – he/she didn't need to kill 'em all, surely? What's clear is that if we still had a regular agreement with the local aristocrats to ride around with a bugle and a pack of hounds, this sort of thing wouldn't have happened.

Before I become a Tory, I think I'll let the fox off – it's Christmas after all. Spending most of my time in Leamington, I wasn't that close to the hens anyway. I'll miss Honky though – she was the best.

  1. The ban hasn't even come into effect yet so you can't blame that for what happened to your hens.

  2. Aw, cheers Helen, for spoiling what I thought would be a drole blog. I was aware of the non-effect of the ban. But we all know foxhunting as pest control is an absurd concept anyway.

  3. Mr Fox

    It's all because you have too many names… Most people who go fox hunting have lots of names, because it makes them feel important and they can't let their very important family name be forgotten… or something like that!
    Anyway, the fox saw your name on the garden gate, and thought to itself that you might be the type of person to go fox hunting, so it ate all your chickens!
    If I was a fox, that'd be what I'd think, and i'd eat your chickens too. Tesco eggs are better anyway :O)

  4. Interesting theory, Mr Fox. Fantastic, in fact.
