Apparently, today is National Squirrel Appreciation Day.
Mind you, this should not be confused with National Squirrel Awareness Month celebrated each and every October.
So I’m going to make the bold assumption that you’re already well aware of the squirrels (and squirrelly people) in your life, and get down to the business of showing the love for those super heroes of the animal world who are…
Faster than a bumper car, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap 20-foot buildings in a single bound!
Well, except for the locomotive part.
However, they can grow their mighty chompers 6 inches per year!
Feeling a little less super now, Superman?
And how about their knack for finding all those hidden nut hoards?
Well, it’s been recently discovered that right before stashing nuts, squirrels lick them and rub them all over their little faces.
Sciencey folks call this “scenting.”
And it clearly proves that squirrels have a level of intelligence rivalling that of your average kid brother…
who's been using this move to protect Milk Duds, Skittles, and Snickers bars since we first stepped out of the cave.
PROMPT: Get inspired by a few episodes of Rocky and Bullwinkle or treat yourself to The Nut Job on the big screen. Then come up with a super squirrelly character who… gulp!... just teamed up with your little brother.
