A SMALL boy with a pet ferret has confirmed that it is far better than any Pokemon.
10-year-old Tom Logan’s grey ferret ‘Gef’ is a real life mini-monster that lives in his pocket and is always primed for combat.
He said: “The whole idea of Pokemon is just a shit pretend type of ferret-keeping for people who are scared of getting the tips of their fingers bitten off.
“With a ferret you get all the fun of having a small, hostile creature with a weird-shaped body, and you get the fun ‘treasure hunt’ element because ferrets are always running away to hide in dark places.
“The only downside is his pungent anal glands, as far as I know that’s not an issue with Pokemon.”
Logan’s schoolfriend Martin Bishop said: “We used to tease Tom for being a scruffy loner who wears a massive wax jacket even in the summer.
“Then we realised he had a real monster in it, and compared that to our lame electronic equivalent, and realised he is awesome.”
