Oh noes! The Killer Squirrel! Flee! 😀
At least it’s not a lagomorph.
ah but for Giant Killer Langomorphs you need a Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch.
Brother Maynard, consult the Book of Armaments…
“RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!”
They should be glad they’re not in Alaska. they have grizzly squirrels up there.
And at least it doesn’t have a lightsaber, or they’d both be dead already. Or at least seriously maimed, lol.
Don’t forget the Water Born variety.
Mon can finally get some revenge from her week of torture.
Can’t be. Ruth packs heat.
Girls, they have more hiding places then Men.
Yes. I recall Friday (in Robert Heinlein’s book of the same name) had a marble-size hiding place surgically created in her belly button.
Yes, but the package she ended up carrying into space was hidden a couple of inches further in…
Watch out Dietzel! Protect your nuts!
The Pun Jar is waiting for you in the alley.
With a truncheon. (Look it up)
Oh hell! The one thing Dietzel can’t handle.
The Hennepin Lake park squirrel.
RUN, DIETZEL RUN!
As I recall – from many years ago – when working for Tonka Toys in Canada – I spent a week at the plant near Lake Tonka . I was warned by the person I was visiting to stay away from Hennepin – particularly at night . Is it still the same – ?
It’s been years since I last visited Minneapolis and Hennepin lake.
I haven’t the foggiest idea. I’d like to think it’s still the bright sunny place I remember it from my childhood. Of course it’s always a good idea to avoid such places at night considering how bad some of the gangs are nowadays. 🙁
Specifically, smaller and less violent than they were a generation or two back. But there are folks (gang members and fear mongers, generally) who would prefer nobody point that out.
Sorry – my error – I was talking about the street downtown – not the lake .
Any excuse to get that cardio in.
BAhahahahahahahaaaaa! Looks like she’s on a fair pace to outrun Dietzel, too!
Proof that the exercise has been working, n’est pas? 🙂
Based on the eye color, the only logical conclusion is that Katherine is a weresquirrel. Who knew?
She caught and ate a squirrel once. Maybe she was infected then?
Stranger things have been in the tabloids.
Brave Sir Dietzel ran away.
Bravely ran away, away!
When danger reared its ugly head,
He bravely turned his tail and fled.
Yes, brave Sir Dietzel turned about
And gallantly he chickened out.
Bravely taking to his feet
He beat a very brave retreat,
Bravest of the brave, Sir Dietzel!
You do recall they ate the minstrel, right? 😉 There was much rejoicing…
Yaaaa! (a nutty post from the squirrely rejoicer!)
That being said one must say that the minstrel formerly known as Bud Fanboi was not going out on a limb with those lyrics. Seems it is easy to dance to and I dare say there seems to be a rush to get to the latest hit… either that or they are all running from the minstrel? It is possible they haven’t a proper appreciation of his poetic prowess.
Brain too tired to find more squirrel references… darn you Madame Friday, I fall to your evil ways yet again…
Delivered by an english or african swallow?
I don’t knooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooow!
Do we know Monica’s favorite color?
Given her chest size, I’m thinking she probably tries to counter it using *light* colors …
Looking at her, I’d say the exercise program is starting to do some good.
Gods, I need to make myself start getting in shape. 30 years of desk job adds up.
I really enjoyed this light-hearted week with the touch of color. I’m sure we’ll pay for it with some eerie darker stuff, but, heck, I enjoy that too! Happy Memorial Day Weekend, and a great regular weekend for the non-Americans too.
ALRIGHT!!! THE SQUIRREL IS BACK!!!
The Squirrel makes a return appearance.
“The squirrel?” There have been many in Wapsi Square, for instance the ones that were eaten by Kath.
Oh, don’t remind me. Way back in 2006 (April 14).
One of those other squirrels ate one (or more) of Katherine’s plants … so she ate it (or them).
My kind of pay back – to tree rats.
At least we haven’t seen the dreaded Mississippi Church Revival squirrel….
These exercise strips with Mon and Dietzel are great, but wasn’t Tina supposed to be exercising too? Where is she?
Yeah…I’m kinda missing Tina too. 🙁
But I do love Mon and Dietzel!!!
Maybe Monica is getting into shape so she won’t be too embarrassed when she has to work out at the gym with Tina? After all, you can’t show up to get into shape when you are too out of shape, now can you?
I guess it will start on Monday, with the first ‘Wapsi exercise video’!!!
M has an advantage, her chest means she can only do push ups ‘half way’…:p
Tina has another advantage, with sit-ups!! she has far less weight to lift… 🙂
No Benefit with out a Price Tag,
No Price Tag with out a Benefit.
So, Tina and M in workout clothes, hitting the gym?
I’ll be in my bunk …
I love how Paul set up this whole exercise run with Monica’s sports bra search, but I have to question her choice of running shoes. Given her weight and the speed she’s been hitting, shouldn’t she wear more supportive footwear to protect her ankles, knees, and back?
That’s assuming she was prepared to be chased by a “killer” squirrel. 🙂 If not, she might not have known to wear the correct shoes.
Here’s a thought- maybe she’s backtracking on the footwear technology and reverting to barefoot running like the Ethiopian (sp) marathon runners…
well I guess she was only going out for a light walk, then Dietzel had a wicked idea… 🙂
well maybe an excuse for no gym on Monday….
As someone who was diagnosed with sciatica, regular walking and standing (sometimes even sitting) had been a real pain in the hip/leg for some time. After a move and a new doctor, I was recommended to spend time barefoot, walking as much as was comfortable that way.
It turned out that the rubber cushioned heels were masking my clomp, clomp heel strike, which became immediately obvious when barefoot. In short order, beginning with flip-flop sandals, I was able to walk comfortably again, and now regularly walk 3/4 to 1 1/2 miles barefoot through my very clean (rare gravel, rarer glass or other debris) neighborhood. End of sciatica. Been doing it for six years now. FYI – YMMV.
Oh that is hilarious 😀 My grandma has a great dane who will indeed run from squirrels, with Dietzel’s exact expression on his face. Priceless!
A bit like elephants and mice? “Aaagh… that little monster will nibble on my toes!!! Nonononono…” 🙂
Ewwie! Toe nibbling is definitely not cool. It made me curl my toes (foot cringing) and pick them up off the floor just thinking about it.
in this household, there exists the foot truce. the only people allowed to touch feet are the OWNERS of those feet, with the exception of the lovely staff at the nail salon. otherwise, feet are off limits.
some WereBear has been threatened with nair in his bodywash should he get funny with the feet. i do NOT play. 😉
oh, good for you! We have much the same rule here, and the local bear has been very good about keeping his paws off. For that, he gets to keep them. =)
“When in doubt, C4!” -Jamie Hyneman, Mythbuster.
Was it the fact of the mouse, or that it was a *white* mouse that caused the reaction? Would a more naturally colored mouse generate the same response?
Something I wondered when I saw it originally.
A friend of mine has two great danes as well and when he takes em for a walk its always quite impressive as people either stay completely clear or stop to admire the dogs. Basicly like walking 2 small ponies.
Of cause that only last untill you get to the park and some old lady’s little “purse” dog has a fit and totally bullies em so they cling to the owner side who get kinda squashed (oh i laughed) 😀 Of cause some of those little dogs can be quite agressive no doubt .. seen to many Rambo movies or something.
some of those little ones are downright mean! I ran afoul of one when I was in kindergarten that kept biting at me… terrified five year old treed up a slide by an obnoxious yap dog made of muscle and pure distilled temper.
I went out for a bike ride yesterday. Paul is partly to blame. 😀
So, is Kat off to the right?
So, we have Monica and Dietzel being chased by a squirrel, being chased by a squirrelophagous Katherine, being chased by an embodied social phobia (possibly Kat’s Embarrassment demon?), being chased by a apo sphinx, being chased by Conscience… 🙂
perhaps this was asked the other day, but why is monica running in a pair of bedroom slippers/moccasins?
Because she was giving Dietzel a bath and had not intended to go running. =)
Love Monica’s expression.
Where can I find a woman like that, like
I wish that I had Jessie’s squirrel,
I want Jessie’s squirrel!
The Pun Jar is hungry for peanut butter.
I would drop some in, in appreciation, but I’m afraid of the pornographic noises such a donation would make…
They don’t have a pornograph, just a Victrola.
A Victrola’s secret?
[Ahem!] The pun jar is waiting for his Master’s voice to jump you all.
[drops in an antique gramophone record]
Shouldn’t that be..
“Where can I find a RODENT like that?”
Also reminds me of the old story/joke of the elephant and the mouse (short version):
An elephant and a mouse crosses a old bridge and when they reach the other side the mouse says: “Gosh! As we crossed this bridge we manage to give it a good shake!”
That is one spooky squirrel. Also it looks like Monica is quite a fast runner.
It won’t hurt you, Dietzel! Squirrels just wanna have fun!
[empties wallet into pun jar]
Oh come ON, people! You had the whole day, til I got back … and not one of you made a reference to Squirrels by the Beastly Boys (the parody of Girls by the Beastie Boys)?
Instead, we went to Cyndi Lauper … shame, shame.
Well, I don’t know about shame, but I’ll admit that I and some others here are somewhat uncultured about musical nuances and references. We’re peasants about it, really.
We do the best we can, though, and try to keep up our senses of humor. After all, churls just want to have puns…
Or Squirrels in my Pants by Candace Flynn….
Or, now that I think more on it … Mississippi Squirrel Revival by Ray Stevens?
“The day the squirrel went berserk.
In the First Self-Righteous Church
Of that sleepy little town of Pascagoula.
It was a fight for survival,
that broke out in revival.
They were jumpin pews and shouting Halelujah!”
I’m glad someone else remembered that song…. (c8
Fine, fine, fine…
😐 I resisted, really I did. But we all know what resistance is, don’t we?
(Pays the pun jar twice *clink-bump* *clank* 2 AA batteries and a walkman)
(Link is to “Story of a Squirrel” by Apologetix.)
Squirrels in my Pants
Monica is loosing inches off her arse faster than anywhere else!!
This is the most SQUIRREL-ous thing Iv’e ever seen in this comic *rimshot*
Next, they’ll be running from bears.
Tepoz didn’t think about bears.
As an offset to the days squirrel y business (Drops a few American Express $100 travel checks in pun vault) the local PBS station here in Reno featured Minneapolis on the Antiques Road Show .There was a tour of some caves from a mining operation in the 1800’s that was quite interesting.
