Don't Have Much Time To Post But.....


O.K., the professor next to me has been discussing the sexual mating cycles of ground squirrels off and on all day with different people. Dear God, please take me home or at least make me deaf. Not that I have a problem with such things because nature is nature.  But all day? All day? How many ways can a squirrel mate and who cares? Why are we spending government grant dollars on this?

I think I'll now go eat a nut.

Oh, my. For a moment there, I thought you meant "off and on all day with people". Lordy.

I think our squirrels do it all the time here. But they don't discuss it at all. Unlike a certain professor.

Please go eat a nut before you are tempted to beat a nut (professor). Does he really have grant money to study this?!

I actually heard one scream when the male caught her and well...did his thing. I have never gotten over it.

Time to get an iPod.

Did he ever discuss why this study is so important to the world? It's not like there is a shortage of ground squirrels, is there?

Sounds like Proffessor has S.S.O.B
(squirrel sex on the brain) this guy needs to get a life; one that doesn't entail squirrels or sex...They really study those things??????

That's funny! But really, he has a grant to study squirrels?? That amazes me.

Claire said...

Maybe if he knows more about the cycle, it will help figure out new ways to control them in farmer's fields. Just an idea. Otherwise, this post cracked me up!

Nerds! Once they get stuck on something, it's hard to get them to move on! lol

What happened to the Professor? Did he ever stop talking about those danged ole squirrels and their sex cycle??? Perhaps the Professor is a "high functioning Autistic"??? They truly have a difficult time "letting go" of the subjects!!!!
My "bear" picture is a hoot! She looks thoroughly peeved about the Bee; I sometimes feel like a bear!
