SQUIRREL TERRORISM UPDATE

They're still at it. And some people still don't get it.

Never surrender!

Citywide Parks Ranger Capt. Richard Sim0n said squirrels have many uses.

"Old people like to feed them and the tourists like to see them," he said. "They're just very friendly, and they're cute."

When, as is inevitable someday, some bushy-tailed rodent makes Times Square go pitch dark, let's see if Ranger Sim0n gives his little homage to the Squirrels of NYC's Enchanted Forest.

Squirrels have many uses....
hats, mittens, stew, mcnuggets...

Squirrels are psychos. They run out in front of your car, then change their minds and direction, darting this way and that. The thing that is most embarrassing is that creatures with brains smaller than acorns are capable of out-foxing giant utility companies and depriving us of our basic human rights (i.e. the Internet).

I guess "tourist attraction" is one of their many uses?

Link 1: I am still amazed that these utility poles/lines aren't squirrel-proofed.

Link 2: Yeah, let's save the rodents. That was my first thought after 9/11.

I can has Snickers!

Anyway, like I was sayin', squirrel is the fruit of the forest. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, squirrel-kabobs, squirrel creole, squirrel gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple squirrel, lemon squirrel, coconut squirrel, pepper squirrel, squirrel soup, squirrel stew, squirrel salad, squirrel and potatoes, squirrel burger, squirrel sandwich. That- that's about it.

Bubba Gump Squirrel!!!??

Those people are nuts. Maybe that's why they're attracted to squirrels. Or would that be the other way around?

We need a visionary like Colonel Sanders to start a coast-to-coast fried squirrel franchise. You never hear of chickens causing power outages do you?

Don't forget squirrel melts, Bubba.

So, is the power outage in Bend over?

Nookee. I belive so. It hit the south side--so we being northerners, don't care.

Funny that this also made the front page of the paper and ran as headline news. I hope the squirrels PR people are watching.

Not to worry. I've got my boys working on it.

The Crankshaft cartoon is dealing with a pesky squirrel - with snowballs.


Crankshaft

Squirrels are here to keep us humble. Just when we complacently assume we are entitled by God and country to electrical power at the flip of a switch, they show us how utterly vulnerable we are! 'Ever awakened on a cold Saturday morning in November and found your whole neighborhood without power, without even any place nearby to get a cup of hot coffee? Squirrels, of course! Aaarrhh!
