This is some kind of conspiracy.

When you see the fox coming, you're supposed to say "Swiper no swiping! Swiper no swiping! Swiper no swiping!" Then he will say "Oh Man!" and run away.

/well, ok they weren't, but I'd rather have a CD than have to rip my ancient tape to CD-R

Swiper no swiping!

Aaron Scheve, a Kansas Wildlife and Parks ranger for the area, said such behavior is unusual, but not out of the ordinary.

Ah, journalists.

Fox's are very smart and adaptable. I had one as a pet when I was a kid. Walked on leash like a dog and almost never made a sound. Cool animals
 
2004-07-16 01:16:37 PM
The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog! SIR!

"Of course, it wasn't me stealing the newspapers, you big dummy !"

"A red fox had been grabbing newspapers and taking them to a hollow behind the subdivision"

Perhaps he and his son are planning to open a junkyard?

LOL at the Swiper references. My Kids watch Dora alot. I hear Swiper No Swiping screamed out in my house on a daily basis.

Awesome Dora The Explorer references.

LOL!

Yep, Now to celebrate, I'm gonna stick Aunt Ester's face in some dough, and make gorilla cookies ....

I've watched that Dora show w/ my niece, and the only thing I can see is that the fox w/ the "swiper no swiping" just really seems to be a cartoon version of a stereotype.
 
2004-07-16 01:35:25 PM
That fox must have been taking lessons from the homeless on what to use for insulation.
 
2004-07-16 01:36:38 PM

also trying to think of a joke about FOX News - but failing.

I was looking for a Harry Potter reference.

"My life is very monotonous," the fox said. "I hunt chickens; men hunt me. All the chickens are just alike, and all the men are just alike. And, in consequence, I am a little bored. But if you tame me, it will be as if the sun came to shine on my life. I shall know the sound of a step that will be different from all the others. Other steps send me hurrying back underneath the ground. Yours will call me, like music, out of my burrow. And then look: you see the grain-fields down yonder? I do not eat bread. Wheat is of no use to me. The wheat fields have nothing to say to me. And that is sad. But you have hair that is the color of gold. Think how wonderful that will be when you have tamed me! The grain, which is also golden, will bring me back the thought of you. And I shall love to listen to the wind in the wheat . . ."

Excellent 80's reference, even though they were terrible!
 
2004-07-16 02:23:21 PM
Maybe it was this sly Fox (also from the 80s):

Scheve said red foxes have prospered in urban areas and find easy pickings in discarded food, trash and rodents.

Excuse me, but did he say that they find easy picking in rodents?

I also had the opportunity of raising one from a baby. And as you can see, subsequentley became attatched to them. He never listens well, and is very destructive, but other than that, hes as friendly as can be.

who in the F is "Sly Fox"?
 
2004-07-16 10:17:48 PM
If I still worked at the Ottawa Herald, I would have been the one who brought down the Sly Fox.

All this glory would have been mine. Damn ye, fates.
