5 Accessories Every Man Should Carry


  • Hedgehog

    You never want to be without a hedgehog; they make great company, and in dire extremis, good eating.

  • Deck of cards

    Handy if you need to make friends and they're allergic to hedgehogs.

  • Can of spam

    You can feed it to the hedgehog, and the empty can has a huge range of uses, such as a hedgehog bathtub.

  • Clawhammer

    Fight off zombies, drive nails, pull nails, light fires, catch fish.

  • Towel

    For wiping up incriminating evidence. May also have other uses.

Uh, exactly how big are Australian hedgehogs?  Or, alternatively, does spam come in super-economy-size containers in the antipodes?

2 These are conveniently-sized pocket hedgehogs for accessorising.

3 Mitch, think of this: http://www.buzzle.com/articles/hedgehogs-as-pets.html
For small messes, you can use a hedgehog as a towel.

4 Yeah.  We don't have hedgehogs in Australia (and they're not allowed as pets), so I had in mind the African pygmy hedgehog, which is a common pet species elsewhere, and could just about have a bath in an empty Spam can.
Local equivalent is the echidna, which is bigger than a hedgehog but smaller than a porcupine.

5 After the rabbit fiasco, I can imagine that the Australian government is leery of other potential invasive species. So I'm not surprised they're banned as pets. If they were pets, soon they'd be in the wild.

6 There was a plan floated recently to import elephants to eat a kind of invasive African grass.  Realistically elephants wouldn't be a problem - they're too big and the breeding cycle is too slow - but it's still funny.

7 Wait, I know how this goes--when the elephants overrun the place, you thin 'em out with crocodiles!

8 ...and when you're armpit deep in crocodiles, you give sniper rifles to the koalas.  When they run out of ammunition, then and only then do the hedgehogs come.

9 The koalas already have sniper rifles, Wonderduck.  In fact, many of them have been upgrading to 20x110 anti-materiel rounds for dealing with the spiders.

10 Well, they need something that large to shoot Huntsman spiders.

11 I slouch corrected.  Maybe they can call in airstrikes via sugar glider, then.

12 That might work.  The flying foxes are okay, but tend to get panicked when there's AA fire.  Sugar gliders are much more manoeuvrable.
