When Squirrels Go Bad (yeah…like THAT’S a stretch!)

November 17, 2009

As my friends know, I DESPISE squirrels.

Well, as if my feelings towards these nasty little vermin needed any prodding, I stumbled upon a video of a squirrel dropping the false pretense of “cute little acorn eater” and going full-blown, Wild Kingdom carnivore on a blue jay. (Due to the nature of the video and some language therein I won’t post a link, but it isn’t that hard to find the video in question on YouTube.)

Now, before anybody starts yacking about “he was only defending his nest”….nope, that argument doesn’t work. To kill the blue jay as an act of self-preservation is one thing, but the bushy-tailed rat EATS the blue jay! There’s even a follow-up video that shows what was left of the bird when ol’ Squirrelly McNutjob got finished chowing down.

So think about that the next time you’re tossing crackers to a squirrel in the park. He may be nibbling away on that saltine, but the whole time he’s doing that, he’s also scoping you out and thinking, “Mmmm-mmmm….fresh meat!”

By Request: Harmonious Anteater

Chowin’ down on pizza and doodling….two of my favorite pastimes made even more fun when they’re done simultaneously. And Shorty’s Pizza here in Tucker, with their paper tablecloths and their free crayons, are just begging for doodlage to occur. So I was more than happy to give in to the urge.

Then my son makes a special request.

“Draw me an anteater playing the harmonica!”

No “draw me a car” or “draw a picture of an airplane”.

Nope.

Anteater.

Playing the harmonica.

Man, I love that little boy!
