Sad panda

I can only hope that I was outbid by Victor, who is planning an elaborate taxidermy-squirrel-themed birthday party for me.

"IDEAL CHRISTMAS PRESENT" indeed.

    Squirrel for the ethical treatment of humans, aka “an eye for an eye”.
    Truly, we are hillbillies and Cherokee half- breeds in these hills, and squirrel routinely is fried up and eaten with biscuits and gravy, a redneck dish this little fellow obviously detests. On the other hand, he may be a TV fan hunting for a new car, hoping to stun the owner with his sartorial elegance instead of the more Southern technique of deer spotlighting.
    The fellow at the bait shop at the 27-70 junction in East Tennessee needs to teach this squirrel a thing or two. His taxidermied raccoon has peacefully adapted to smoking a cigar and drinking Bud. If he ever ends up on eBay, I may go snipe-hunting for high bids.

    I got outbid on the Super Squirrel. Seriously, $140+ for a dead squirrel? My last girlfriend wasn’t even that expensive!

  116. I’ve informed my boyfriend via the magic of Face Book that I want a squirrel army. In return I got a photoshopped picture of a child crying with the caption “NO YOU CANT HAVE A DEAD SQUIRREL ARMY” Along with a small insert picture of a stuffed squirrel riding a scooter with “NOT YOURS” across it.

    Damn him and his sweet photoshopping skills. Im getting a stuffed squirrel one way or another…. *sets squirrel traps*

    I love that this is what we are spending our research dollars on! Enjoy!
