Make up your own jokes...

A new study, conducted on behalf of Natural England and the People's Trust for Endangered Species, has suggested that the re-introduction of beavers into the UK could "benefit the environment". Professor John Gurnell, of Queen Mary College, University of London and one of the report's authors, said beavers acted as "ecosystem engineers" and could provide many benefits, including alleviating risks of both flooding and drought, boosting water quality and helping wildlife and agriculture.
He added that there was no evidence beavers spread disease, which seems incredibly irresponsible given the government's current ad campaigns on the dangers of STDs. Next thing you know the Pope will be suggesting that condoms actually increase the spread of HIV/AIDS.
