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??

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.


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!!

Touching a red-hot blade to a squirrel's ball sac is going to make it calm?

That squirrel will take off like a rocket.

Hey, look what we have here, a stray squirrel managed to escape toadgas' secret underground squirrel breeding/experimentation basement. What the hell was he doing with them? That poor squirrel.

"Now the Purple Squirrel has its own Facebook page with more than 3,800 fans."

Toadgas may be onto something here. LOL

These white ones are the more noble ones... Still... today I'm approaching a bridge across the Ganges and his big white monkey jumps in front of me and pokes me in the chest.

I'm like WTF! But realize I have a carrot in my mind.

Ok Dude, if you insist, here's the carrot

Hate monkey and monkey type things. Got attacked by a foul Macaque years ago. Hate hate hate and it's not too strong a word.

What ever became of that damned thing next door to your parents? It came over to menace me when I dropped by that time. I didn't know what the hell it was. It didn't move like any sort of animal you would expect in rural Texas.

Gah. I hope it tried to bite a power transformer or something.

That Purple Squirrel represents my new product line after much tampering with embryonic squirrel chromosomes. There is a generous REWARD for its return.

(I've also been working with possums, trying to make them less ornery.)

Hey, Karl Baba, thanks for checking in from India...that "monkey" looks like a mean mofo. Wise idea, handing over that carrot!

Karl,

That story is SO funny. The big bad monkey - kind of the ultimate bully and shake down story, no? I like the way he poked you in the chest. (I am sure it was less funny to you considering the size of those teeth). It sounds like he shakes down everyone who wants to cross the bridge.

You never answered my question last week. When you go to India, where do you stay?
