And we're not protecting the flying squirrel anymore.

We've got enough.

Well, since they finally added enough UAVs in Afghanistan, we've been able to bring the flying squirrels home! They're probably just going to do a little domestic surveillance on Boris and Natasha for AT&T...

Now if we can just get the snail darter off the list.

Holey smoke.

During the long twilight struggle with Communism, I went to bed a little safer because Rocky walked the parapet and defended us against Boris & Natasha. Mickey had more gravitas and Bugs more insouciance, but Rocky surpassed them all in earnest endeavour. How soon we have forgotten this hero.

Though I don't think William's comment can be bettered, let me just add that my pronunciation of "squirrel" drives my American friends to hysterics of laughter.

We in Britain say "skwi-rrrel", whereas of course North Americans say, "skwirl".

Victoria,

I'm sure this doesn't help.

Blake, unfortunately, I'm spoilt like that little brat is. Fortunately, I've never wanted a squirrel.

If I want something that goes bump in the night, I'll buy a vibrator.

Cheers,
Victoria
