Silly Short Story #6



By Simon J Tatt


Never wear red trousers or green shoes or a combination of orange and black, squirrels don’t like it. Be ever so careful not to get squashed by large objects either, this could cause pain and broken bits.

A large squirrel is not very nice to confront when angered and one should always consult a squirrologist if in any doubt as to its emotional state.

Please replace traffic cones if any tree borne rodents should fling them hither and thither in a fit of jealousy or anger.

London busses are not particularly good at avoiding grey squirrels. They are however very good at dodging the red variety and their close relatives the porcupine.

Elderly people are well known for dropping nuts and crusts and can quite often be seen to run very very fast when confronted by female squirrels who will often rudely hiss at the elderly if there are no nuts or if an older person hums any tunes that start with the letter Q.

A legendary American war hero once said that to confuse mankind one had only to confuse a squirrel. We believe he was referring to a rather bossy squirrel called Cedric who, back in 1887, had attempted to run for presidency ……… presidency then neatly side-stepped and the rest is history.
