Idle doodles / reverse anthropomorphism

I had a call yesterday from a lady whose surname is Badger.  What a great name.  I'll be meeting her in due course but I'm getting this irrational fear that I'm going to be faced with this:


Mrs Badger


Of course this has set me off now and I've started to imagine her colleagues too...

...like Miss Fox


and Ms Ratt.

Then there's the elegant Miss Deer


I think it's probably unlikely I'll meet Mrs Highlandcow, at least.

      She has a tendency to fawn, though...

  3. Ms Ratt looks a bit like Rosamund Hanson (that's not meant to be rude!) These are inspired.

      But I'm also thinking that Mrs Highlandcow looks a little bit like David Johansen!

  6. I had a supply teacher once who looked just like Miss Highlandcow. She WAS a cow, as well. Uncanny...

  8. Mrs Badger ? Does Anita Dobson know that is how you refer to her ?! I love badgers...despite having one embroidered on my maroon school-blazer :)

    1. Haha - but no, Anita Dobson (!) doesn't know how I refer to her but I'm sure it isn't anywhere near as bad as how I refer to her husband ;-)

      Curious to know why a *badger* on the blazer?! At first I thought there was just a surplus 'r'...
