But squirrels are terrorists. Some squirrels used to climb up the wall of our apartment building near to where our cats were looking out the window, just out of reach of the cats' paws.

that Squirrles don't have opposable thumbs

My mole in the inside says they are working on the opposable thumbs as we speak.

Evolution is making them behind schedule, but it's coming they say.

And it's only getting worse. They have a contingent initiating research into opposable big toes. The end is nigh.

Hmm, my contacts within the Squirrel Army have not informed me of this development. I'll have my mole hit the usual drop location to provide you what information I have.

I recently learned they are working on a form of walnut that will explode when exposed to nearby heat, such as a fireplace or grill. This is horrible news.

Truly a sad day. I'll be in touch.

Speaking of moles... I hear they're getting sight -- and hand grenades!

Re:Thank God, literally (1)

insanecarbonbasedlif (623558) | about 10 years ago | (#9561232)

Why would anyone want a grenade shaped like a hand? I mean, I know moles are mentally a little slow, but that is insane!

Re:Thank God, literally (1)

ellem (147712) | about 10 years ago | (#9562261)

Moles: insanecarbonbasedlif is our mortal enemy. He must die first by our grenade hands!

Re:Thank God, literally (1)

insanecarbonbasedlif (623558) | about 10 years ago | (#9563926)

Wait, now you've taken explosives, shaped like hands, and started using them as prosthetics? Think of the danger when cooking food! Next, you're going to tell me that you've made nitroglycerin filled dentures!

Mole: *chomp chomp* *BOOM!!!*

You think THAT'S bad? I heard they are working on a Rogain derivative that will cause hair to grow on rat's tails, thereby making them "cuter" and less susceptable to attack. They are offering the treatment free to any rat that enlists for 4 or more years. This will effectively double their numbers.

whose bethanie? (1)

nocomment (239368) | about 10 years ago | (#9561064)

I always see you and gmhowell talking about bethanie.

that squirrel thing is really funny btw.

Re:whose bethanie? (1)

FortKnox (169099) | about 10 years ago | (#9561200)

Umm... bethanie [] . She's become a corner-stone in the "JE Circle." Today she is in labor with her second child. Read some of her JE and comments... she's quite the character.

Anyhow, you can always check My Amigos [] to see everyone's journal I read.

The squirrels sometimes chew through the cable TV coax up on the pole. If that's not a terrorist act, I don't know what is.
