    This is.... Absurdly cute. What the fuck.


    It's worth noting that the reason the beaver wants the water to be deeper in the first place is that the Beaver is using the deep water as a pantry:

    All summer and fall, beavers gather up branches with the leaves they actually eat, and store it in the deep end of the Pond, where the cold water and limited oxygen keep the leaves fresh all winter, so when it's negative 20 outside, a beaver can take a dip out of it's lodge, grab some refrigerated leaves in the (relatively) warmer water and go back to it's cozy little nap hole while everything else is out there suffering and eating bark or the like.

    So it's less "there's a leak in my house" and more "OH SHIT THE FRIDGE!!"

    Miriam Margolyes on The Graham Norton Show.

    Miriam: "You know this thing about trans? Now all these people will always say 'we mustn't talk about trans', well fuck that. I'm gonna talk about it." (Audience laughter)

    "I was very keen on grammar and so when people started talking about pronouns and that they wanted to use 'them' and not 'he/she', I thought 'what the fuck are you talking about?' It is clear, it's grammar. It's the structure of language.

    "But I met a wonderful actress in Australia, Zoe Terakes, do you know who I mean? She's a brilliant actress and she's trans and I - she had a discussion with me about it and she said 'what does it matter to you? If you can make somebody happy by calling them 'they' instead of 'he' or 'she', why not do it?

    "And I thought 'that's right.' It doesn't matter about grammar." (Applause) "if you can make someone happy and give them a sense of themselves then do it."

    Boy George, sitting beside her: "Absolutely."

    Miriam: "And so, I'm now somebody who uses they and all the rest of it. Whatever they want me to say, I'll say it."
