There's Nothing Funny About It











Happy In Bag readers occasionally compliment the documentation of my ongoing battle with squirrels. "It's so funny when you write about how you hate squirrels," I'm told. But I'm not laughing. The demons gnawed through my roof last week. Oh, how I loathe them.

    I've noticed that squirrels have been going crazy all over town recently. I think it's a harbinger of something sinister that will have us all living in a barren post-apocalyptic midwest. Or maybe not.

    What do you have in your house that they want so badly? Do you still have pumpkins in there? Just give 'em over to the squirrels, man! Save yourselves!!!

    DLC and Faith: Please don't encourage my squirrel-oriented delusions. I truly believe that they sense my antipathy and lash out at me accordingly.

    WTF!!!...Are you sure they are actually squirrels?

    Squirrels feed off of your fear. Do not let them see you sweat. They are more insidious than politicians.

    I suggest a good pellet gun. Good luck.

    Holy (pun intended) Crap! Okay, it's time for the squirrels to meet the same fate as the chipmunks. I won't tell PETA, just do it. Is squirrel infestation covered by home owners' insurance?

    I know it's hard to believe that the varmints can actually bend nails, but that's squirrel damage, Buzz.

    The problem, RG, is that I don't know how to poison squirrels without also killing rabbits, opossum and birds.

    UL has the right idea. And I swear, UL, that squirrels taunt me as I walk down the street. They KNOW it's me.

    The secret is to shoot them on the high wire whilst they are over the neighbor's yard. (wink, wink)

    Srsly- If any neighbors are reading this thread, please know that I would never aim a gun at a target in a tree or on a wire.

    Re: UL's link. Ha ha. Dumb squirrels don't know that I'm a KU guy.
