Drunk Squirrel in the Middle of the Yard

As you may remember, I hate squirrels. But even a cold-hearted hater can be charmed by a drunken rodent.



Stolen from the sometimes squirrelly, rarely drunk (and much adored) Crusher.

I'm such a sap, I'm actually worried the poor thing has blood alcohol poisoning.

Hope he makes it home OK.

I have made an observation that quite a few bloggers I have stumbled upon seem to hate squirrels. I'm not one of them but I'm beginning to wonder if there is a connection between blogging and an anti-squirrel movement.

They're just rats with bushy tails!

Pretty funny!

Everything's funnier when I'm drunk, which is always. Takes the edge off that morning commute, that's for sure.

I'm now planning to get a bunch of pumpkins to have my own fermenting fun. My backyard is overrun with the tree rats lately and if I can't beat 'em, maybe I'll join 'em.

could be rabies. Don't mean to scare all those nice people in Georgia, but...

A few years ago, I was walking by the movie theater near my work. A raccoon ran-wobbled right in front of me on the sidewalk than smashed straight into a glass door there.

Strange moment. I have no idea what happened to the critter. I did check to see if they were showing any animated Disney features that included cute-funny raccoons but no such luck. Only movie there that even came close was Lyndsay Lohan's remake of the Love Bug with the semi-conscious Volkswagen Beetle, might have been a little bit more in control of its faculties than Lyndsay at the time, but that's another matter.

I loathe squirrels, but this actually made me a little sad for the little bugger.

I wonder if that squirrel had a hangover.

Is that a squirrel or my husband? Just asking, cause I can't tell the difference.

Thank gawd, you told me he was drunk. Otherwise I would have phone Animal Control and reported him as rabid.

And to the commenter that asked, yeah, I noticed the typo. And it made me not want to enjoy the video -- but I did.

I wish I could have given that squirrel some Advil!

CHELENE: Isn’t it? As wasted as my niece was Saturday night.

THIRD WORST POET: I thought the same thing! Welcome, fellow sap.

BIG SHOULDERS: You freaked me out! I thought you meant there was a typo on my page, and I spent ten minutes searching every inch of the blog. Did you see similar squirrels at the Austin City Limits festival:

STEP RIGHT UP: I’m all for an anti-squirrel movement. Hate those furry f*ckers. But I love that you stopped by!

BUBS: I believe we now have an quorum of awesome.

DABICH: I bet he cracked his nuts very quietly the next day.

KEITH KENNEDY: Exactly!!!! Nasty-assed rodents.

SKYLERS DAD: I can’t stop watching it. I’m probably on a PETA list right now.

PISTOLS AT DAWN: Nothing like a drunken drive to cut down on the morning glare.

DALE: If not you, then your colorful neighbor. I’d like to read about her on a pumpkin bender.

CHANCELUCKY: Maybe you saw Lindsey and not a raccoon.

ALLISON: I didn’t get sad. I hate them that much.

GIFTED TYPIST: I hope it did.

BARBARA: If we could hear the music it’s listening to, we’d know.

SCOTTIE NEWS EDITOR: I love that my readers are as turned off by typos as I am! And thanks for stopping by!

Those tree spins are the worst...you climb the tree and it won't stop spinning so you have to put a paw on the ground...oh my head...

Didn't meant to cause distress, Beth.
No squirrels at ACL, but plenty of dragonflies. They flitted over the crowds the entire weekend.

And of course, Austin is famous for its colony of Mexican Free-Tail bats under the South Congress bridge.

But I don't think I saw a single squirrel. They probably thought the world was ending with all the noise going on.

cheers,
b.s.
