Dead Love: Attack of the Killer Squirrels

Ah, Saturday. Autumn. Trees. Color. A walk around my neighborhood …

Time for a little squirrel magic? This post was provoked by my friend Flower (not her real name), who is planting narcissus bulbs and worrying about squirrels … which is wise.

Although I adore them, we all know that squirrels can sometimes be dangerous and destructive. In the case of Foamy, the vituperative little devil-rodent created by Jonathan Ian Mathers and my own personal favorite Sciuridae Family member, deadly … as proved in this deadlightful look at Foamy and one of his hyperactive little pals. This is a popular squirrel game called The Acorn Toss, but Foamy has a killer arm and aim … as you will see.

In my opinion, squirrels have reason to be angry with humans. We’re so dismissive. Be nice to squirrels and remember to duck if they start chucking nuts.

    Reminds me a little of Bambie meets Godzilla! A couple of eyebrow-raising surprises right off the bat. Couldn't help smiling as soon as I heard Foamy-speak. Hilarious … perfect oomph to another busy day. Thanks again Erin!
