More squirrel stuff

Triumph of the squirrels (Star Trib)
So cute. So conniving. So harmless. So destructive. We humans have a love-hate relationship with our charming varmint neighbors, who sometimes get a little too close for comfort.

They say that the only places where these insidious little varmints can not be found is Hawaii and Australia. Good thing for Australia, I think they have enough to worry about with all the deadly snakes and other deadly jihadists.

The Strib actually gave some fine dining information as well.

Squirrel Recipes

for example: Barbecue Squirrel

1 squirrel
1/2 c. barbecue sauce of your choice
6 cloves garlic, sliced
1 tsp. vegetable oil, or cook and bake spray
Aluminum foil
Clean squirrel and cut up into sections. Spray a sizable piece of aluminum foil with bake spray or spread with vegetable oil. Place squirrel pieces on foil. Spread garlic slices over squirrel pieces. Pour barbecue sauce over squirrel. Wrap foil around squirrel, enclosing into tight package. Place package on metal baking sheet in 350 degree oven for 1 1/2 hours. Serves one.

How do you clean a squirrel? Extra-strength Lava.
Serves one!!! If you're Nicole Richie maybe. I'd say 4-5 for an average human being.

I think I'd prefer just drinking a bottle of barbecue sauce and forget the squirrel.

that was my after thought, but the sauce got all matted up in the hair so i was stuck with it that way.
