Don’t Put Your Nuts All in One Basket

Squirellio says PPPPBBBBBFFFTTTHH! to good old fashioned advice.

What a shame. Because we also would like to inform him, that’s a catapult.

So that’s where the phrase “squirrel away” came from, Mia! Whee!



  1. A tongue-lashing first thing in the morning? It’s gonna be a rough day…

  2. Mr. Skwrl is saying, “Nuts to you!”

  3. (in sing-song voice)

    I got all the nuts.
    You can’t have any.
    Blow raspberry.

  4. Gigi, you missed your chance at a haiku:

    I got all the nuts.
    You cannot have even one.
    Here’s a raspberry.

  5. mom! gigi has my nuts!

  6. that sqwerl is clearly a bengals fan

  7. O…M…gah!! The tongue!! The wheeeskers!! The little fingers!!! *thud*

  8. OK get’s mind out of the gutter and tries to go back to work.. 😀

  9. Thanks for doing it, I’ve tried but I’m just not a poetic person.
    The only poem I’ve ever been able to produce all started with:
    “There once was a man from Nantucket” 😉

  10. This is such an epic picture, it would take ages of patience to get this perfect picture. Too bad though that its a squirl-a-pult.

  11. Gigi – And you such a refind young ladee, tsk tsk 🙂

  12. Is it a statement on my maturity level, that the first thing I did was stick out mu tongue back at him?
    *hangs head sheepishly*

  13. MY, I stuck MY tongue…
    eesh, one of these days, maybe I’ll learn to type!!

  14. Pyrit – Ahem, dons wise-acre glasses, runs finger down page in cyclopedia, pushes glasses back up nose, clears throat [ again ] I think you’ll find, that it’s a Trebuchet.
    Slams cyclopedia with teriffying finality, takes off glasses smiles smugly, polishes glasses, runs for the door.

  15. oh nuts, we lost one…

  16. oh, all right.

    *kicks dirt*

  17. And remember, if he falls to an untimely death by crashing into a cactus we can clone him from his tongue.

    Ack! Ack! Thbbft!!!

  18. Brilliant, simply brilliant. I bow down to your haiku-writing talents.

    This is a great photo. I suspected that squirrellio tongues were cute, but now I know it’s true. Thanks, Pyrit and Mia!

    You’re gonna love my nutz.

  20. Hey I meant me not you.
    I’m sure you’re comment meant be innocent.
    (nudge nudge wink wink)

  21. LOL! Yeah every time I see that commercial I wonder how that line got pass the sensors.

  22. There once was a squirrel from nantucket
    who put all his nuts in one bucket.
    When he ran off to play
    some one stole them away
    he returned and was heard to say Ohhh Muck it.


  23. yay! the potty talk pool is open again! be careful: the shallow end gets pretty crowded.

  24. And ALL the ends are the shallow end!

  25. I’ll see your trebuchet and raise you a mangonel. :mrgreen:

  26. Pah! I see your mangonel and raise you a Ballista.

    By the way, as you’ve got a Mangonel, could you do my sheets, the dryers gone on the blink and we’ve got guests comng

  27. It’s pronounced Tre boo kay!

  28. Now that’s the kind of poetry I understand!
    Cries of Author! Author! to wild applause.

  29. 😀

  30. Reminds me of this movie scene:

    A: If you will not show us the Grail, we shall take your castle by force!
    S: You don’t frighten us, English pig-dogs! Go and boil your bottoms, son of a
    silly person! Ah blow my nose at you, so-called “Arthur Keeeng”! You and
    all your silly English Knnnnnnnn-ighuts!!!
    (bangs on helmet) Thpppppt! Thppt! Thppt!

  31. (The Original) Mel says:

    Who’s the other one?
    I am.

  32. Feh! I scorn your Ballista! I whip out a sambuca, and a company of arquebuses!

  33. Sambuca, why didn’t you say so. i’ll have mine with Bailey’s Irish cream, Blue Curacao, Genadine,Kahlua,Sambuca, Southern Comfort.
    Oh yes and,my love’s an arbutus…

  34. CritterMom says:


    I kinda, sorta know this little sweetie pie, and it is about time her stardom was noticed by the world!

    Can I have your squirrelograph now that you’re like totally famous?

  35. I fart in your general direction! Your mother is a hampster, and your father smells of old elderberries!
    Now go away, before I taunt you a second time!

  36. There once was a squirrel from Nantucket,
    Who kept all his nuts in a bucket.
    He wouldn’t share one,
    Then he took his tongue,
    And, making a face, out he stuck it.

  37. warrior rabbit says:

  38. ZOMGosh….A catapult!!! Silly squirrellio.
