Ideas for after the "cute baby" thing wears off...

4 squirrels, cut into pieces
1 c. chopped onion
4 cloves garlic
1/2 c. burgundy wine
1 tbsp. chopped parsley
1 tbsp. flour
1 stick butter
1/2 c. chopped green bell pepper
1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp. chopped onion tops
4 oz. or more mushrooms
Tony's creole seasoning

Cut each squirrel into 8 pieces. Season with creole seasoning. Melt butter in a Dutch oven and fry squirrel pieces until browned all over (and starts to stick to the pot). Add a cup of chopped onions, 1/2 cup of bell peppers and 4 cloves of garlic. When vegetables are soft, add a small amount of cold water and Worcestershire sauce. Cover pot and let simmer one hour. Stir well, add 1/2 cup wine. Cook until tender. Add flour to mushroom liquid, onion tops, parsley and mushrooms. Cook 5 minutes. Combine with squirrels. Serve over rice. Serves 8.

I know two people who had pet squirrels. Yup, they get older and wham, all their cuteness is gone and they wreck havoc. Go rescue a cat or dog, they get better with age and they are the best pets.

One of my favorite random websites.

"All Squirrels Must Die"
"Home of the squirrel defamation league"

... although it is FAR less entertaining since they shut down the squirrel-hater's forum. The avatar pics were priceless.

i once had a golden mantle squirrel for a pet.. The dood just couldnt help but nip me when hand feeding him snacks! It was like he was perfectly at home for a few nibbles, then he would sneak in a little nibble off my hand or fingers! Never did get used to that.

how did you kill it






didnt kill him..He eventually took liking to a she skeewarrel and left to make a home of his own...

Life imitates art or something like that ...





I was really looking for a better music for the second one. Maybe a little more like the first...



But seriously, take a look at glide ratios of flying animals, physiology, center of mass, etc.

I imagine Mr. Gill, arms perpendicular to his shoulders (forward attack?), with a bed sheet tied to his hands a feet might have given modern jumpers a run for their money. Finally, I would guess that some women could have done much the same, but rings aren't for girls ... (ummm, yeah! boys).

addendum: wing sweep, drag, angle of attack, golf ball divots on the ventral surface to increase laminar flow, well groomed chest hair?

Contact Richard Gere, I'm sure he had a squirrel or two in addition to his steady repertoire of hamsters, mice and gerbils

When I was a kid in suburbia, me and my next door neighbor shot a squirrel off his fanatic animal lover mom's birdbath with a BB gun. We wanted to eat it, but not immediately, and the skin was difficult to get off so we put it in a bucket of salt water in the basement and left it. We ended up using pliers to pull the skin off, which wasn't easy, we had to pull really hard for a long time. When his parents were at work we cooked the skinned carcass in his livingroom fireplace with barbecue sauce. The meat was stringy and tough. His mom would have killed us if she ever found out.

Toadgas, couldn't ya burn their testicles out with a wood-burning pen when they are young? That may make them calm and people can enjoy them as pets. Or, you could also sell the wood-burning pens to your customers when the squirrels get a little older.

Apple.


When polled, the local osprey population overwhelmingly preferred it as their garnish for squirrel al fresco.

Hankster, is that really one of your photos?

I thought squirrels are aggressive, and would f things up if touched by humans??

Sound business advice: Come up with an "upsell" item to increase each transaction. Looks like you've got a business partner.

I was working for a tree service in Boulder when construction was in the shitter. while felling and cutting up this big tree, a baby squirrel rolled out. being as I'm Buddhist in my love for all creatures(cept' monkeys)I scooped it up and put it in a towel in a box and was very careful as I continued bucking up the rest of the tree. as I was working I found the 1st squirrels sibling and put it in the box with the other. they were to tiny to bite me, never seen daylight probably. so I took them to the Greenwood Wildlife Rehab where they were raised and released by now I'm sure. they let me hold a tiny redfox while I was there!!
