Thanks subby, this was just in time to prevent me from that day trip to the petting zoo. I hear the bears are so cuddly, but now I think I'll make other plans.

What a box of crackers might look like.

Yeah, right. Just try getting a bunch of squirrels to come prepared with two-minute monologues.
2012-03-17 04:20:09 PM  
um, yeah, it would be a good thing to teach your children not to stick their hands into strange holes in the ground.
2012-03-17 04:23:41 PM  
There were no survivors.

Squirrels are messengers from God.

"it's important to keep kids away from the squirrel holes"

That's some damn good advice.

Why is Eyewitness News forcing white people to get in a box in the first place?

fark crackers.

Does anyone ever consider bringing water to birds and squirrels? Appears to be many areas without streams or rivers that are populated by these critters...

Everyone is throwing dry bread, nuts or crackers. Seems on a hot day, the last thing they would want is dry crackers. I guess the animals wait for it to rain.. or are they sucking on outdoor faucets?

they ripped their eyes out?

seriously when folks feed the squirrels they will come closer.

this is bakersfield, nobody had a 22 and some rat shot?

OK, so everyone that goes into the park gets a coat and a hammer. Problem solved.

Always use a .22 for squirrels. Head shots are best, it doesn't damage the meat (unless you like the brains, then you gotta hit the shoulder area). Generally shotguns are not recommended. Nobody likes chomping down on a piece of lead shot, and a 12 gauge turns them into a gooey mess. If you must use a shotgun, a .410 is your best bet.

Fried squirrel is pretty tough. A crock pot is the way to go. Slow cooked in gravy, served over rice. Or slow smoked with hickory.

Why, were the OWS people back?
2012-03-17 06:52:14 PM  
I just gave a squirrel in the back yard a walnut. He ran off with it and came back a few minutes later demanding another one. I didn't give him one, so he ripped the screen door wider and tried to come in the house. Meanwhile, my cat (sitting just inside) just watched the whole thing unfold. Lazy lazy cat.

Like squirrels. They acted exactly like squirrels.
2012-03-17 06:54:27 PM  
What's he got there? Soda crackers? They're not even Carr Water Biscuits. I only eat Fauchon biscuits. I wouldn't touch those plebian soda biscuits with a ten foot tail.

I mean really! They're not even salted tops! How gauche!

Urban squirrels are not only getting fat and aggressive, they're getting snobbish and picky.

Poisoning Pigeons in the Park (music video in new window)
-- Tom Lehrer

Spring is here, a-suh-puh-ring is here.
Life is skittles and life is beer.
I think the loveliest time of the year is the spring.
I do, don't you? 'Course you do.
But there's one thing that makes spring complete for me,
And makes ev'ry Sunday a treat for me.

All the world seems in tune
On a spring afternoon,
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park.
Ev'ry Sunday you'll see
My sweetheart and me,
As we poison the pigeons in the park.

When they see us coming, the birdies all try an' hide,
But they still go for peanuts when coated with cyanide.
The sun's shining bright,
Ev'rything seems all right,
When we're poisoning pigeons in the park.


We've gained notoriety,
And caused much anxiety
In the Audubon Society
With our games.
They call it impiety,
And lack of propriety,
And quite a variety
Of unpleasant names.
But it's not against any religion
To want to dispose of a pigeon.

So if Sunday you're free,
Why don't you come with me,
And we'll poison the pigeons in the park.
And maybe we'll do
In a squirrel or two,

While we're poisoning pigeons in the park.

We'll murder them all amid laughter and merriment.
Except for the few we take home to experiment.
My pulse will be quickenin'
With each drop of strychnine
We feed to a pigeon.
It just takes a smidgin!
To poison a pigeon in the park.
