Proof That Squirrels Are Evil

Good evening loyal readers. This is The Daily Bone and I'm your erudite doggie commentator Chester L. W. Spaniel. 

I think this year's members of the Evil Squirrel Cartel are a bit lacking in brains. As you can see in the photo below, Mr. Fatty White-ears is sitting on the lawn in our back yard looking right at a nice big osage orange. (That's the big green thing that looks like a tennis ball.)

Dad always picks up a few of these by the Science Museum in late Fall for ghostwriter because she likes how they smell. When they start getting moldy she throws them out into the compost. The Evil Squirrel Cartel usually picks these up and chews them into little pieces to get to the seeds. But not this year! 

Look at him sitting out there as if expecting seeds to magically fall out of the birdie feeder above him. He obviously has no idea what to do with an osage orange! 

Scram-ola dum dum!

I've written many a treatise on the Evil Squirrel Cartel. In 2010 they broke into the shed and made it their winter command center. They chewed up all the fiberglass insulation and cardboard in there and used it as litter for their excrement. What a horrible stench! Oh, and every summer they behead all of ghostwriter's nice sunflowers and steal our delicious pears from the tree in our yard. Now they're trying to eat up all the hawthorn berries that the birdies need to survive the winter. Worst of all, steadfast fans will remember last week, they chewed a hole in our dear Oma's Christmas parcel!

Well, we found a video that proves that squirrels are truly evil. Be sure to watch till the very end, after the credits, because …


… revenge is tweet!


  1. If you put the osage oranges in your house, tucked away from the doggies, they do wonders for ridding the house of spiders.

    Dad had red squirrels living in his work shop one winter. They would come in and stay and play and luckily, they never did any harm. Dad was lucky!
