Public Service Announcement – Don’t Bother Squirrels

Here’s a recent PSA from Prevent Squirrel Attacks United, a new group I created just to make this PSA.

Squirrels may seem harmless and good natured, but they harbor a mean streak and will fight back when annoyed enough. While it may be fun to poke a squirrel or take away its nuts and chant, “I have your nuts, nya nya nya,” it only leads to heartache in the end. After many trips to the ER, I have decided that squirrels demand respect and if we are unable to give it to them, either though constant teasing or drugging them and dressing them up in embarrassing outfits, they will use whatever force necessary to teach us to be more civil.

This squirrel is not pleased.
