And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Genesis 1:26

Wouldn't want to run out of squirrels. What about all those pesky insects? What's the policy on mosquitoes? Thank God they aren't cute and furry.

Pete here to say that, for his sake, anyone is welcome to roast any of the squirrels that have been harassing his garden.

It probably wasn't squirrel hunting season.

Re: "It probably wasn't squirrel hunting season."

It's wabbit season [/Daffy Duck voice].


The power was out for an hour this morning, preceded by an hellacious BOOM! that woke me. Ran outside to see a nearby power pole on fire at the top. Down at the bottom of the pole was a flaming.....squirrel.

Didn't see any Bible camp counselors nearby, though.

I see stories in the news nearly every day about squirrels taking down the power in some city or other.

Pogo said...

Me, too.
But I'd never considered the religious angle before. Today there's a huge Jehovah's Witness meeting just down the block at the Civic Center.

The Bible and squirrels on fire in the same block.
Coincidence? I think not.

I can go for weeks without seeing any mention of squirrels. I suppose we should be thankful that they don't have cleavage.

The power outage stories are too mundane to blog.

The Finnish chocolate story (above) is also too mundane to be in the news, but I thought it was interesting that it was reported at all.

Just how are you supposed to keep camp kids in order if you're not allowed to harass rodents?

TMink said...

I ate squirrel once, just to say I had. It was in a game stew with some moose.

Heh heh.

You know, somehow I didn't think it would be, "Be sure to have enough for everyone." (Even though it sould be.)

One day, the squirrels are going to take power. I rue that day.

As long as they leave Gainer the Gopher, the beloved Saskatchewan Roughriders CFL mascot alone, I'm cool with cookin' the rodents.
