He should run his resume past the CIA. Somebody with a 6th sense for moles could do very well indeed in the ‘intelligence community’.


#5

He should run for office! We’re soon to have a pussy grabber for President why not a mole grabber as a Senator?

After the camera stops:

“Oh dear, I’ve dropped the little blighter into the whirring blades of this lawn mower.”

  1. Dig a hole. 2. Stuff a mole in it. 3. Start the camera and tell a bullshit story. 4. Pull the mole out. 5. One million views.

You left out:

  1. Get a mole.

That’s covered in the video.

I was troubled by the way the video stops just as he’s walking towards the mower, too.

In rural Lancashire/Cumbria, and presumably the rest of the UK, it’s common to see a row of mole corpses hanging from a barbed-wire fence. I’m never entirely sure why - is the molecatcher letting the landowner how much he/she is owed? Isn’t there a better way?

Or is it to show the moles what’ll happen?

ETA: Never mind; I had the radical idea of consulting Google, and found out.

I don’t play golf so i don’t know how much of a nuisance moles are, but it seems cruel to remove animals from a giant plot of land that’s not serving much of a fuction

Well, William of Orange was killed by one.


#14

I’m not seeing a downside here :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: Maybe moles are intended to keep the 1% numbers in check. Thus is the circle of life.

Has Jasper Carrott contacted him yet?


#16

Whack a mole.


#17

You forgot one too:

  1. Crawl out of your mom’s uterus.

Are we talking about skin cancer now?

I might have squeed a bit at the sight of the mole.

I know. They’re cute. I can’t resist.
