A Picture Tutorial

How To Catch A Squirrel
by Brendan Wisor
Step 1: Choose your weapon.
Step 2: Listen for the squirrel.
Make sure to keep your weapon hidden.
Step 3: You spotted it?Step 4: Start swingin'. And swingin'. And swingin'.
Don't worry that your weapon may not seem to be effective.
Or that the squirrel doesn't even appear to notice your efforts.
It's all about determination. And endurance.
Step 5: When your endurance is up and
step 4 has left you out of breath,
which should be in approximately 30 seconds
give or take,
ask the squirrel nicely to come down.
Say please.
And promise him nuts.
If the animal is particularly difficult,
a change of strategy may be necessary.
"Mommy, ladder please."

  2. "And here is the rest of the story..."
    Paul Harvery, "Good day!"
    I am wondering if that poor squirrel became dead squirrel or an unhappy Brendan?
