You just know who's behind this....

“How to celebrate…

“Change your desktop and social media profile pictures to an image of a squirrel.”

Wasn’t that choice the beginning of the end of the Tang Dynasty?

Our Hero...

Squirrels have feelings too.

The best use of squirrels...

Does Hallmark have a card for this?

".... a day to acknowledge the role that squirrels play in nature and the environment." That's about a day too long.

"A group of squirrels is called a dray or a scurry, though the term dray or drey usually refers to a squirrel nest." ...I did not know that.


The rest of us here in North Carolina would like to let you know we had nothing to do with this.


Then why is there a White Squirrel Weekend
May 26-28 in Brevard, NC?


Because people in Brevard are crazy.

Fortunately, White Squirrel Weekend does not promote the feeding, housing, copulation, or immigration of squirrels of any color.

This seems to be a good time to point out that squirrels were originally only found in forests. They were deliberately introduced to cities: see "The Urbanization of the Eastern Gray Squirrel in the United States," published in the December issue of the Journal of American History.

We have met the enemy (or at least the enemy's accomplice) ... and it's us.
