“Prominent barrister beats fox to death wearing a kimono.”
This, believe it or not, is the biggest news story in Britain today. It was prompted by a barrister’s arguably ill-advised announcement on Twitter that, while dressed in a kimono, he had beaten to death with a baseball bat a fox that was trying to eat the chickens in his London garden.
Normally, I would be the first to leap to this poor chap’s defence: foxes, though handsome, are vicious predators; an Englishman’s home is his castle; chickens have rights too; the circumstances – the fox was trapped in a net and it may have been dangerous to free it – were extenuating; why shouldn’t a chap wear a kimono if the mood takes him?
Unfortunately I can’t because I’m far too busy wetting myself laughing.
