Bryan Dean was a fan of the honey badger before it was cool to be a fan of the honey badger.

Yeah, now we all like the honey badger. It’s easy to be a honey badger fan ever since the funny video went viral months ago. If you’ve seen it, you know what I’m talking about. If you haven’t seen it, you should be ashamed that you don’t spend more time on Facebook or Twitter.

In any case, breaking news reporter Bryan Dean has had a passion for the honey badger for many years. Because of that passion, he decided to capitalize on the recent fame of the animal to launch his Facebook campaign to get a honey badger to the Oklahoma City Zoo. This is much like the ‘I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas” story, but it’s fast-forwarded 58 years and it doesn’t have a catchy song.

But it does have a nifty video (produced by fellow breaking news reporter Tiffany Gibson). And it has a smart social media presence. You never know, we might be writing about this in six decades.
