    Thanks, Cory and Fipi Lele!
    I needed a chuckle.

    Squirrels do have a range of mental states, for example “nut nut nut nut nut” and “wait a minute what’s that!!!?” but as far as I know, “humiliation” is not one of them

      Squirrel logic.

      I saw a squirrel completely miss the branch he was jumping to a while ago in my yard… he’d figured out humiliation pretty well based on the glare he gave me before running back up the tree :)

       Don’t be a killjoy. They always seem to get the last laugh.  I WANT to humiliate my backyard squirrels! 

    • retepslluerb says:

      For all we know having a big head is a source of pride for them.

      “Say, did you you seed the CHEEKS on this guy?”

    I wonder if this would let you get close enough to throttle the little bastard while he’s neck-deep in the chow.

    Err, I mean to guide him gently but firmly into a squirrel-safe transporter-container for relocation to an undisclosed offsite location .. where he can begin his new life as an animal refugee in someone else’s yard.

      …and presumably with an orange jump suit.

      Squirrels have a nasty bite.  Just ask my cat.  Can you crack a nut with your front teeth?  Gnaw holes in the fascia?

      Gently and firmly is the way to go.  Do a wild release so that he can compete with the squirrels that are already there.

    If you wanted to only make it LOOK like you’ve surrendered, a simple mini-guillotine mechanism installed in the base would make quick work of Marie Antoinsquirrel.

    I want one that works like the mask Vincent Price used in the first Dr. Phibes movie.

  6. elisd says:

    Can I get one with a comical George W. Bush head instead?  Pretty please?

    It looks great! I’m not ready, though, to give up on my Yankee Flipper.

    Frankly I’d rather watch squirrels play in my yard than birds.  They’re far more entertaining and will gladly attempt any obstacle courses you set up for them.

    • graou says:

      In France we don’t care about squirrels, but we’d love to see this kind of stuff for British people. ^^
      I guess we just need to stuff giants queen’s heads with lamb and mint sauce !

  9. kmoser says:

    I would rig it up to a squirt gun to discourage them from revisiting.

    • digi_owl says:

      Depending on the heat, they may take that as a invitation to stay.

        i once spared one’s life from my dog and he started acting like we were friends…or that he just beat me in combat and he is now my master…i dont know which. but he was annoying nevertheless (i prefer it when the squirrel runs away, this one would not and would in fact run up to me)

  10. Ryan Holmes says:

    This has made my day! Everytime I look at it I laugh. Now, how to import squirrels to Australia…

  11. M Alovert says:

    I’m in a town where backyard fruit trees get decimated by the huge squirrel population. I’ve considered 2 alternative bird, er, squirrel feeders:
    -put out a bird feeder. Stack some strawbales or sandbags behind them to catch your stray birdshot, so you don’t accidentally shoot the neighbors’ kids while doing squirrel population reduction
    -put out a Have-A-Heart trap on the way to the birdfeeder. Then, once there’s a squirrel inside, don’t have a heart.

    “Pests?” They are cute (and shy) little fur balls. Always cheers me up when I see one every couple of weeks/months.

    (Yeah, yeah, so I don’t live in an area or country with a gray squirrel problem. I still think that 10 gray squirrels begging for food in an American park are cute and fuzzy though.)

  13. retepslluerb says:

    Why the hate against squirrels?  They are at least mammals and not degenerated dinosaurs who vent their frustrations by throwing feces through the air.

    • austinhamman says:

       because they are much better at getting under your siding than birds (its the hands) and then they tear open the siding, get in your house, leave it open for those same dinosaurs to set up nests in your house.

      • retepslluerb says:

        Ah yes. Probably much less a problem with red squirrels which are apparently more meek.  Also, more brick houses over here, which are zombie-proof.

  14. failquail says:

    Never quite understood the hate squirrels get, they’re awesome little furballs :)

    nevertheless, this squirrel catapult always amuses me :D

    If you’re going for something ridiculous why not something that’s not a squirrel head instead? Like, why not put a bird head (for the revenge of the birds whose food they are stealing?) Or maybe a human head? A dog? The possibilities are endless for putting a “mask” on the squirrel without him even realizing it!

  16. Robert Little says:

    It would be funnier if the feeder was a predator’s head (cat, dog, large venomous snake) and the squirrel ate out of its “mouth”.

  17. bolamig says:

    So people who think squirrels should be taken down a notch can accomplish their mission by setting up a feeding station for squirrels?  Methinks this was designed by a very clever, unashamed squirrel.

  18. Chris says:

    This also works as a way to block the vision of the squirrel so he doesn’t see you as you take aim…

  19. uglyshyla says:

     I’m sure the crafty little farts know what is going on and don’t mind us humans getting a laugh out of them.I have a squirrel Winkelhimer http://www.facebook.com/winkelthesquirrel that has not only taught itself to paint but also to open screw cap lids.

    Well, thanks to Archie McPhee, I’ve become acquainted with Bibo.
