The Bad-Ass Honey Badger

How have I not written about this yet?!?!

Who out there has seen Randall's Honey Badger video on YouTube?  I think it's hysterical.  For the 3 of you who haven't seen it yet, here it is (be warned - there are lots o' swears in it):


OMG I can't take it, it's so funny.  Among my girlfriends here in the EJ we have embraced the honey badger, fully integrating pieces of Randall's brilliant narration into our every day lives.  For example, at coffee, it's not unusual for someone to say "Pass the sugar, stupid" or "Where did you get these donuts?  They are so nasty!"

Of course we are joking.

There has even been talk of the EJ ladies getting Honey Badger T-shirts - I like the ones that have a picture of him and say "Don't Care".  I really, really hope this happens.  How funny would that be?

I've never seen anyone fully embrace their inner honey badger as much as my friend, Aimee, has.  She is going through a divorce from a lying, cheating, thoroughly unattractive slime ball (I'm a very loyal friend).  It's been hard for her - very hard.  But watching her go from deserted wife to bad ass honey badger has REALLY been something to see!  NO ONE has embraced her honey badger-ness like Aimee!!!  She was totally taken off guard when her soon to be ex dropped the bomb that he's leaving her and the kids because he was having an affair and wanted to be with his new (insert choice words here - I'm showing AMAZING restraint) girl.  Her world fell apart.  But not for long.  As Aimee slowly but surely embraced her inner bad ass honey badger she has stood up for herself, reached out to her EJ ladies, taken up hockey and kick boxing, signed up for golf lessons (pink golf shoes!!!  GO AIMEE!!!!) and even approached a good looking man who was checking her out at Starbucks.  Seriously!  Aimee don't care.  She's ripping the head of the king cobra (hmmm.....hello Dr. Freud?) and taking what she wants, leaving the scraps behind (thanks for the scraps, stupid!).  She's creating a wonderful new life for herself, and for her beautiful boys.  And she's doing it on her terms.  I'm so, so proud of her, and have been inspired by how amazingly strong she has become.  For my friend Aimee, the best is yet to come.

So don't be afraid to embrace your inner honey badger.  What are you waiting for, stupid?!?!  :)
