Well, Good

"We can categorically state that we have not released man-eating badgers into the area."

UK military spokesman Major Mike Shearer denies rumours that British forces had sowed panic in Basra, Iraq, by unleashing ferocious honey badgers (pictured). The badgers, slightly larger and scarier than the British woodland version, are in fact indigenous to the Middle East.

Slightly scary badgers?

I think that in this instance the word "honey" could possibly be termed a "euphemism."

As in "honey wagon"?

The UK spokesman added, "We don't need no stinkin' badgers!"
