Do they have a language for 'I'm running across the street right in front of a moving vehicle and I'm about to get my ass killed just like a gazillion others of my kind?"
 
2014-06-21 11:14:45 AM  
They only say "Total Fark is only $5 a month" and "DOG!".

Pffft. Same thing they've always said.

They're not saying anything. They're laughing at me.

Squirrel alarm calls are ok. Its their damn mating calls + the fact that they won't shut up that gets me.

Yeah, I hear that alarm sound all the time when I leave my house.  I call it the "angry squirrel" noise.  Kinda sounds like a band name...

"I don't wanna live anymore, where's a car I can run in front of or an electrical substation I can immolate myself in?"

Deer hunters have been listening to squirrel calls for years. You don't want a squirrel to notice you and start barking because that alerts everything in the woods. I have been alerted of approaching deer by squirrel barks too so it can work in your favor as well.

What phrases are associated with squirrels besides such things as  "Now here's something we hope you'll REALLY like!" and
"Now THAT'S comedy!"?
