Squirrels on crack

That's right, squirrels on crack.

I have been accused from time to time of coming up with an article just because it fits a title that's been kicking around in the back of my head. Occasionally this is even true. But never before have I even contemplated the idea of squirrels on crack.

Although Rita has.

The squirrels around here are definitely on something. I watched one yesterday charge & thoroughly route a large hawk....all without dropping the cluster of pecans he'd just stolen from my tree.

Thanks for the link!

I'm feeling a filk coming on.

Squirrels on crack (two minutes later) squirrels on crack...

...I hope I haven't violated a rule against references to Duran Duran on your site...

No such rule, but I do tend to switch off the active brain cells at the mention of Duran Duran. It's sort of a reflex.

Yea ... I switch off at Slim Whitman ...... its just self preservation Charles :)

The secret is, you really need to scour the British press for nuggets like this. They just don't make news like this in America. I mean, we do what we can, but they are just... inspired.

Speaking of which, congratulations on your Best Okie Blogger (2005) Award! (And to think, I know TWO of them... from my great remove here in Hoboken... how the heck did THAT happen?)
