Fucking Squirrels

Thursday, July 31, 2008
I like to feed the birds, but I usually don't because the squirrels congregate on the ground around the bird feeder to snatch up the scraps. This infuriates Boogie, who doesn't want those fucking squirrels on his grass.

So I usually skip it.

However, when I was the store the other week, I found some birdseed that advertised itself as "no waste." Hey, I thought. Maybe the birds can eat this without attracting every squirrel from miles around by flinging their shells and such all over the ground!

Yeah, right. That's what'll happen. Fucking optimist.


Fucking squirrels.

Sorry; Uncle Larry and yourself aside, I think they're adorable. Yes, I'm aware that they're rodents, but that fuzzy tail makes all the difference.

We buy whole corn to feed the little cuties. :)

Cindi, I wouldn't care if they didn't antagonize poor Boogie so.

But he consideres their presence a personal affront. They simply must be destroyed.

I'm just curious how many fetish search hits you get from the title...

:D

Shawn, ew. I didn't even think of that when I wrote it (obviously).

Ew.

Possibly helpful trivia I ran across today: allegedly, birds can't taste capsaicin, but squirrels can't, making it useful as a deterrent.

If you try this and the squirrels respond with a request for blue cheese dressing and celery sticks, I'm afraid I've got nothing.

I cannot believe I sided against my small, furry friends just now. I love squirrels.

Panda protects us from squirrels, chipmunks and birds very effectively. We are a very safe family.

I don't know what she'd do if she ever caught one, it'd be pretty hilarious, actually.

And ewww, Shawn.

You need one of these.

John, I was thinking about one of these.

But don't you want to watch the squirrels get tossed on their collective ass by the spinner?

Hours of live entertainment!
