So there's been this constant debate among academians (I'm of course referencing myself and Slice of the Blog Pie's Alicia Gregoire), whether or not squirrels are in fact, evil. (Click evil to read Alicia's take on squirrel conversations and to find other interesting squirrelly stories.)
We both seems to agree that, yes, squirrels are evil. I know it. She knows it. And now thanks to my newspaper's April Fools edition, the whole of my campus knows I consider squirrels to be not only a nuisance, but dastardly plotters of man's downfall.
Okay, I didn't actually say that, because I didn't want to freak people out, but I did showcase the squirrel gangs on our campus. They really do exist.
I've seen some squirrel throw-downs and it ain't pretty amigos. Fur and nuts were flying everywhere and I considered myself lucky that I could (possibly) outrun them.
Now I'm going to go check my door and make sure they haven't marked me for termination. And possibly buy a Jack Russell terrier. Because they're the natural enemies of the squirrel.
