After the announcement that badgers are to be culled in the UK to prevent the spread of consumption amongst its cows, the Guardian draws on Keats for inspiration:

Bad taste that on a few levels. I am against badger culling.

Well, I don't think satire has ever suffered from an excess of tastefulness Raphael :lol: . I'm against the badger cull too, but I like the fact that Keats's poetry found its way into a Steve Bell cartoon.
