Update: The Squirrel

So that you may all have closure to the tragic squirrel incident, I'd like to report that it is resting comfortably in otherworldly furry slumber. I braved the cold, the rain and odd stares from the neighbors, armed with a shovel and gloves, carved an eternal resting place amongst the trees he (or she) once called home, and laid the little woodland creature to rest. It would have been quite moving...

(disturbing content ahead)

...had I not almost cut through our underground cable line...and the squirrels head not, well, come off.

Please tell me it wasn't you who cut the squirrel's head off! How did it come off? The poor thing.

I take back my apparently premature comments about you being soft-hearted. Your role as an undertaker has revealed a latent cruelty I wasn't familiar with. :-P

Is it wrong that I find that totally hilarious?? *attempting to keep a straight face*

Haha! I'm sorry. The dark humor side of me finds that horribly funny. I'm horrible I know. lol Well now that that squirrel's head is off, perhaps you can just send it specialy delivery to rest in your mafiaoso lawn boy's bed?

That was so funny, and yet so disturbing...

Ok, Chris, I'm stupid. Where's my damn refresh button when I need it. :(

Ugh. I'm laughing and wincing at the same time. Headless squirrel can't be pleasant. I think it is nice that you buried him. My dog finds dead squirrels from time to time when we're out walking, and you'd be amazed at how long people will leave a little squirrel corpse lying in their front yard.

Okay, maybe not.

Damn! I am going to have nightmares all night now!

So you're desecrating corpses now, huh? I see how you are. ;-)

Is it bad that I just laughed so loudly that the cats fled the room in fear?
I'm sorry, that happened, but darn it's funny :)

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA, that reminds of two summers ago I was at a friends place, for a mid afternoon bbq. He has a high strung german shepherd (was a puppy then), SO... there he is , this shep, galavanting around the yard making high pitched squueeks and yelps. When out of the corner of my eye while slurping on a beer i see him tosss something into the air , I figured it was an old dog toy or some such, and went back to guzzling beer, mmmmm beeeer. So my friends girl friend comes out of the house and yells SHANE you dumb Fuck, stop him, I was like WHAT?, hahahahahaha didnt ya know that the old play thing i thought he was tossing about was a freeking squirrel, hahahahaha, sorry assed me had to dispose of it. My fault for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, i guess

Okay. I've figured it out. This one took me a while, and it's kind of a long shot... but, at least it's something:

The squirrel was in Christmas Vacation with Chevy Chase
who was in Three Amigos! with John Lovitz
who was in A League Of Their Own with Tom Hanks
who is the third cousin four times removed of....

Abe Lincoln ;)

Told you it was a longshot!

The Ghost of the Headless Squirrel will terrorize your yard, for SURE.

I think you hit the nail on the head with the mafia thing. Horses are expensive these days so they have down sized and gone for dead birds and rodents.
Anyone heard this song yet:
