The mother of a young girl who was squashed by a car last week has today come out and launched a tirade against hedgehogs. The whole ordeal centres on the road crossing safety adverts of the 1990’s in which hedgehogs were used in conjunction with the catchy song, King of the Road to help kids learn how to cross a road safely, the entire point of a road crossing safety advert.
‘The thing is,’ said Mandy, 45, from Dagenham, Those hedgehogs ain’t very good at crossing roads either are they? The spiky cunts are always getting run over but they they think they can teach our kids to do better? Who fucking chose hedgehogs? They should have used eagles or something. I’ve never seen one of them run over.’
We reached out to the Road Crossing Hedgehog Committee for a statement but the their spokesman was dead. We’ve included a link to the video of the advert in question. Do YOU think hedgehogs should have been used? Let us know in the comments below.
