I will never show fear, or lose respect of the squirrel.

I bow to your greatness. :) ha, ha. oops...not supposed to laugh at those greater than myself...I'll go find a hidey hole.

I have always been thankful that squirrels do not realize that they can drop down off trees onto our heads and cause us to run in sheer terror right off a cliff or into traffic .... etcetcetc.

That is very funny! I have always been baffled about why anyone would participate in the version that involves bulls.

VioletSky,
Very, very wise! :)

cabcree,
I can't quite put my paw on it but somehow I feel that you are not sincere in bowing to squirrel greatness. Hmmm....

kat,
What a great idea for a movie along the lines of "The Birds". It could be called, "The Squirrels" or maybe "Night of the Killer Squirrels"! yay!

cz,
People should try running with the bulls before they try running with squirrels!

geewits said...

To beat the squirrel, you must think like a squirrel. Hmmm, where'd I put my nuts?

the walking man said...

You do know what happens to the bulls of Pamploma after the run right?

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

geewits,
You may safely deposit all nuts in your possession into my Swiss Bank account.

Mark,
Are you raining on my parade? Thankfully beef appears in far more menus than squirrel.

;-P

Now THAT'S a sport I'll watch!

Marja said...

I am afraid very afraid now Didn't know this site of you

geewits said...

I guess my contraction threw you off. The "where'd" was for "where did." In the "think like a squirrel" (from the video) I was thinking like a squirrel and they are always looking for their nuts. Sorry for my poor writing!

No ty..... making a salad is enough excitement for me..... and having read about your experience with the kitchen tools... graters and peelers... a story which I laughed over but took to heart as well .... I think of it then when I am peeling my carrots and am careful only to get vegetable matter into my salad and not any of my own protein :-> love ya

This looks like me in college. Many a time, I'd be on my way to class, and I'd encounter a squirrel on the path. My fear would kick in--yes, of squirrels--and I'd have to turn around and flee back to the dorm.

Thanks for making me go all PTSD here, my friend.

Janice Thomson said...

Where do you find these things LOL! Too good.

Sally's World said...

kimber,
Thank you. But I can honesty tell you that a personal fantasy of mine is to run with wolves.

Marja,
Please don't worry. You have safe passage with us squirrels.

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

geewits,
Understood you the first time but I still recommend redepositing your nuts into my Swiss Bank Account. :)

kat,
Plenty of excitement in your wonderful garden.:)

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Jocelyn,
You seem to be a pretty fearless lass. Glad to know that you too have a few odd foibles and of course it does my ego good that it is about squirrels! :)

Janice,
It's like finding nuts that are buried; totally guess work!

Lone Grey Squirrel said...

Sally,
Thank you for coming by and visiting my eclectic blog. Hope to see you around here. Don't be a stranger.

This magnificent video made its debut a few years ago here in the States as one of the most popular commercials aired during the annual SuperBowl telecast. Much was written about it, and how it was produced (apparently only one or two live squirrels, and a few robotic ones) were used. It is an outstanding (and funny) commercial and of course one of my favorites. To this day, people remember "The Running of the Squirrels" but for the life of them, cannot recall the name of the company it is trying to promote!!
May we ALWAYS run with the squirrels!!!
