 |  May 19, 2008 at 01:11 AM

Aaah, the big burly (Norwegian) firemen! the tiny fierce qtness of the badgeroos!! Ded-ly combinayshe!

 |  May 19, 2008 at 01:12 AM

Firefighters? Yes! (my lad's a fireman himself!)
Scandinavians? Oh yes! (I'm a Hiberno-Norse [Irish-Viking] reenactor!)
Norwegian Firefighters Holding Adorable Baby Animals!? *dead faint*

the firefighters said that the badgers didn't seem afraid at all, and were very nice and on their best behavious...though they don't know what happened to the badger mummy :(

and you norwegians out there; vi har en grevling i taket, greveling grevelang, vi har en grevling i taket, greveling...

 |  May 19, 2008 at 01:22 AM

Oh!...oh! The poor little bebehs!

Jenn: it's the American badger that has the name for viciousness. The cubs being rescued here are Eurasian badgers - shy, gentle creatures that are absolutely ADORABUHLS!

P.S. Google page translation isn't quite up to the task, but I am charmed by the subhead: "'They seemed not afraid at all, says brannmann Lande." Brave little snorters.

Not to mention this bit: "forvart safely in the arms of staute, proud and a little rørte officers in the fire service in Oslo." Any man who rescues imperiled badgers is entitled to be as staut and rørt as he likes!

P.P.S. Grevlingbarn = "badger babies" (or badger cubs).

Awww... Så søt! ("So cute!" Ok, that's about the extent of my Norwegian skills). I've been in Oslo a year now, and I get my local news from CuteOverload XD I was wondering what that smoke smell was when I left the apartment!

 |  May 19, 2008 at 03:51 AM

Brave firemen. I loved 'em before, and I love 'em even more now.

 |  May 19, 2008 at 04:03 AM

Those two can be staut and rørt with me anytime they want. ;-)

Really quite hunkalicious these firemen arent they. OH and of cos these baybee badgers are absolutely anerable as well. They seem all "Huh? Wot fyre?"

 |  May 19, 2008 at 04:50 AM

 |  May 19, 2008 at 05:11 AM

 |  May 19, 2008 at 05:31 AM

I don't know about you all, but I have yet to meet a Norweigan that wasn't at least mildly gorgeous.

And now put them in firefighter uniforms...

And give them anerable baby animals to rescue... overload indeed!

I may have to leave work early just to recover. :D

Baby badger infestation? Sign me up.

 |  May 19, 2008 at 05:52 AM

Jeg snakker norsk og! Men kjenner ikke noe grevlingsang...somebody should sing the Norwegian badger song and record it and put it somewhere so the cute overload legions can learn it.

 |  May 19, 2008 at 06:13 AM

Attention all Norwegian firefighters:

You will never have to pay for another drink in Cambridge, UK. Not while I'm around.

 |  May 19, 2008 at 06:36 AM

Totally wonderful, all the way around. I can never get over the bravery and compassion of firefighters, no matter where they are. They give their all.

 |  May 19, 2008 at 06:42 AM

Look how they cradle the badgings in their arms :)

 |  May 19, 2008 at 06:57 AM

Badgers aren't vicious! Even though a recent Toyota ad says they are. I talked to a badger expert who claims that kitty cats are nastier! Take a look at http://ngm.typepad.com/pop_omnivore/2008/02/show-some-love.html

 |  May 19, 2008 at 06:59 AM

Paula - great comment!!! Hee!!!!

 |  May 19, 2008 at 07:01 AM

Actually Badgers are gentle shy souls but when they are cornered they can be quite ferocious as they should be in order to survive.

that said... Badger badger badger badger Mushroom Mushroom Snake Snake.. I think someone was ingesting some of those mushrooms when they made that song LOL
