RECYCLING IS GOOD

But can you have too much of a good thing?

Someone took "getting some tail" too literally.

"Salt the butt end of the tail generously."

No, you do it.

well, that went well with the coffee.

"We do not advocate taking squirrels strictly for their tails."

How about just for fun?

*ducks*

When my mother-in-law was a girl, she got paid 2 cents for every ground squirrel tail she turned in to the local grain elevator. The Grain Growers Association did this as a means of pest control. So hey, what's good enough for the ground squirrel is good enough for the regular squirrel.

*gooses, since katiejane already ducked*

Why is the squirrel's tail better after October 1? Mine is usually better after midnight.

"26 cents, same as in town."

um, dare i axe - what will they be doing with the rest of the squirrel????

Mom used to make squirrel stew and tell us kids it was chicken. We were onto her when bits of fur and the errant BB got stuck in our teeth.

Queensbee: squirrel is good eatin'!

How to make an attractive, yet inexpensive, bridal bouquet from squirrel tails.

"... dip in a strong saltwater solution" making sure to keep the tails straight. Curled tails give the impression of the bride being 'trailer trash.'

queensbee: Mepps is only interested in recycling tails taken from squirrels that have been harvested for the table. See? They make tables out of them.

"Do NOT remove the bone from the tail"

(Insert your own bone/tail punch line here)

Does running over them repeatedly with you car count as "harvesting"? I'm just askin'...

I boo thine headline, booo! Recycling is indescribably depraved. What did the poor third world bauxite miners ever do to us, that we should be reducing aluminum consumtion as if there was a shortage? They've got to eat, and they don't have food stamps or anything in most of the places that stuff comes from, or other ways of making a living, for that matter. Maybe this post wasn't really that great a place for me to get that off of my chest after all. I should have linked to one of those squirrel monologue cartoons instead.

Here I am, sitting on Grandpa's collection of curled squirrel tales, and I find out they are worth nothing. Then I was thinking, hey maybe his 250 mule deer tales will bring in some cash, but no...

After Oct. 1st. Technically, every day is after Oct. 1st except of course, Oct. 1st.

Dang, I live in Idaho so I can't sell all the excess squirrel tails I have laying around the house since apparently it's illegal to sell them here. There goes my Christmas Fund....

What century are these Mepps people lost in?!! 16 to 26 cents each. Who's gonna bother. They take a skwerl tail they paid 16 cents for and make a hundred spinners that they sell for 5 bucks each. Bah!
