Thumbnail images can be
deceiving. Whilst perusing squirrel photographs on Flickr last night, I came
across a thumbnail of this image. "Aww,
teeny baby squirrels," I thought to myself, foolishly clicking to get a better
look. Wrong. So, so wrong.
After picking myself up off the floor, I confess that I found myself admiring how fit these little suckers are/were. Besides the feet and head (which are no longer an issue), they look like they were pure muscle. These must have been dashing-through-the-wilderness type squirrels. Or perhaps, hit-the-gym-7-days-a-week type squirrels. Not like the mangy little booger (fueled by
Cheetos and Mountain Dew, no doubt) that tore a hole in my backpack years
ago while trying to pilfer a candy bar.
Even with 8000+ cuddly faced squirrel photos coo over, this is the one picture that I can't stop staring at. It is called "Squirrel for Dinner." Enjoy.

Traveling isn’t always the most comfortable experience, but at least you have your music to keep you company on those long flights.
