Ah, Squirrels, everyone's favorite (or least favorite) rodents. My experience with the critters has certainly been positive, although my dog would probably disagree. She has a group of squirrels that constantly harrass her on walks and while she gets riled up, I think it's hilarious.
Do you have a favorite? Least favorite? Real world or otherwise.
Scrat the Squirrel?
Rocket "Rocky" J. Squirrel?
As a big fan of comic books, I'd have to pick Squirrel Girl. (I know she's not actually a squirrel, but close enough, right?)
She's like Spider-Man but instead of the awesome powers of a spider, she has the adequate powers of a squirrel.
-A Large Squirrel Tail
-Claws for Climbing
-The Ability to Communicate with Squirrels
This final ability was actually what prompted Doreen Green to become Squirrel Girl! She overheard some squirrels chattering and ended up saving one of them from a dog. This squirrel convinced her to use her powers for good and Doreen decided to fight crime as the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl!
While she is a bubbly, endearing, and popular super hero nowadays, in her first appearance she was the stuff of nightmares...
No wonder the Invicible Iron Man didn't want her as a sidekick at the time.
Got a favorite squirrel or interesting squirrel stories? If not, today is also NATIONAL GRANOLA BAR DAY and NATIONAL HUGGING DAY! So, have a granola bar and hug a loved one!
HAH, as soon as I saw this, Squirrel Girl first came to mind. So glad they redesigned her... that look is terrifying.
I used to work with a few squirrels...
We have squirrels galore here. Both grey and black. They're funny to watch, as they do some wacky things.
Don't leave us hanging, Mark!
Well, there are those types that seem like they're always moving around, always going somewhere/doing something, but you never know what they actually do and they never seem to accomplish anything meaningful? I used to call them squirrels. lol
