Squirrel Appreciation Day Redux

Sometimes I think the world likes to mess with me. Like having these enormous hips and no about 2 inches of torso* or when I want milk, all cartons are frozen blocks of white. No matter, I can accept it.

I really can't accept there's a day dedicated to squirrels. You can read my reasoning on it here. Today I'll play devil's advocate for the furry front.

Reasons We Should Appreciate Squirrels
  1. They sometimes eat insects and other rodents.
  2. The nuts they hide in the winter a lot of the time just become seedlings.
  3. They have incredibly fluffy tails.

That's all I got. My squirrel paranoia is too strong. Now if this was Chicken Apprecation Day**...

If you're an avid squirrel lover, read what the NWF says about how to celebrate Squirrel Appreciation Day. Then, you can go to What On Earth and buy some squirrel merchandise.

* This might be a slight exaggeration on my part.
