On a Ninja Monday

Breaking News! This latest story interrupts my typical Monday Morning Entertainment.

Some of the readers here know Zannyro (aka Suzanne) at A Window Into the Woods. Two of her recent posts (post 1 and post 2) indicate that she has  met the enemy and declared war … and the enemy is a ninja squirrel.

Early reports from northern Indiana indicate that Zannyro has been acting a bit bizarre of late and has made atypical purchases at a variety of local stores ranging from Home Depot, Feed and Seed Emporium, and a Military Surplus R Us.

Despite her possible instability, she doesn’t realize the dark side – the dark side of the ninja squirrel and its capabilities.

Although this picture identifies Zannyro’s target, to better understand its capabilities, see for yourself.

News Update: An exclusive report from inside the squirrel camp to be released between 8-9 pm (Eastern US) tonight.

Some Memorable Lines
I gotta have a bird! I’m weak, but I don’t care! I can’t help it! After all, I am a pussy cat.

Brother pussycats! We’ve been skidded out, scooted out, backed out and booted out! But tonight, we was scared out! It’s unhospitabitatble, and furthermore, it’s un-cat-stitutional!

Sayyy, wait a minute……Tomcats can’t be mothers……Cats can’t lay eggs!

Thufferin’ Thuccotash!
