I Knight You, Sir Squirrel!

Of the Acorn Arms! Who rides the vicious battle skunk of Findor! Who razes with little catapults loaded with acorns!

What the Liberal Media Won’t Tell You in an Election Year

BBC News: Russian squirrel pack ‘kills dog’ Squirrels have bitten to death a stray dog which was barking at them in a Russian park, local media report. Passers-by were too late to stop the attack by the black squirrels in a village in the far east, which reportedly lasted about a minute. They are said […]

Impending Squirrel Attack

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

I write this, my friends, so you will not be ignorant of the impending doom that is about to come upon all 50 states (that have squirrels). I type with my shades down today, as increasing numbers of squirrels canvas my house. In deliberate facade, they peek under fallen leaves for the acorns that will […]

The Squirrels Are Getting Smarter

Wednesday, July 30th, 2008

The bird feeder is squirrel-proof. It’s spring-loaded and drops down to cover the opening when something heavier than a bird is on the perch. I caught a squirrel on it the other day. It was bending the metal that covers the openings. His buddy was on the ground watching, maybe waiting for the thief to […]

Beefing Up Site Security

Thursday, January 24th, 2008

Tired of spam, comment spam, and trackback spam? Me, too. Tired of constant attempts to hack your site and fighting ghost posts of ferret propaganda? Me, too. Looking for someone who is up to the task of protecting your digital and virtual investments? Hey, who isn’t? I give you The Monkey Exhibit’s new security commander, […]

Super Squirrel

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

You know, I was going to change topics. I have some other ideas bouncing around this brain, ideas that I discussed with Scoob today, but you made me do this instead: . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . […]

Squirrel Behavior

Monday, October 15th, 2007

Due to the odd nature of the squirrel in my back yard, I’ve done a little research on the critters. I think I’ve found the explanation of its strange behavior: After about 30 years of maturing, adult female squirrels return to the ground to nest, usually on the same lawn upon which they were birthed. […]

Tinker Gray

Friday, October 12th, 2007

Dearly beloved, we gather here today to mourn the passing of our beloved brother, Tinker. Tinker was a husband, father, son, brother, friend, and all around nutty guy. They say that some die never knowing what hit them. That is certainly true for Tinker. His favorite pastime was sitting by the side of the road […]

Squirrel Adventures

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007

Hey, look at that squirrel! There’s a squirrel on the lawn, and he’s just sitting there. He’s not moving or anything. Maybe he’s dead. Squirrels don’t just sit on the lawn and not move. Oh, he moved his head. He’s alive. What’s he doing there, just sitting there? He’s not even eating. Something’s wrong. Maybe […]

If I Could Talk to Squirrels

Friday, September 16th, 2005

I would tell them that they don�t have to be such a spaz. I, of all people, know the joy of a good spaz now and then, however these squirrels are constantly jumpy. If I open my big garage door, they have to run full-tilt across the garage roof, jump onto a nearby limb, and […]

Chipmunk Mentality

Wednesday, October 20th, 2004

Yes, I said it. Why is it that small, furry creatures wait until a car is coming before they try to cross the road? A squirrel, for instance, will sit by the side of the road happily chewing on an acorn until it sees a car coming. At that time it will lower the acorn, […]

Squirrel Appreciation Day

Wednesday, January 21st, 2004

We don’t know who thought up the nutty idea to call today Squirrel Appreciation Day, but since we’ve been gathering information on those furry rodents for some time, today seems the right time to pass along our nuggets of knowledge. For starters, although there are plenty of critters known as squirrels—ranging from the giant Malabar […]
