Asshat of the Week
Attack of the Killer Squirrels
You take your kids to play at the park. You read the signs prohibiting food because of aggressive squirrels.
You decide the rules don't apply to you.
What could go wrong?
The Allards, Mensa members (ok, to all those REAL Mensa members who are googling this from Norway, this was sarcasm) whose 4-year-old got into a brawl with a squirrel over a couple of Sun Chips, think prohibiting food in the play area isn't practical for people with small children.
Park officials say that visitors have created the problem by feeding the squirrels. Squirrels have become so brazen that they expect humans to provide food for them and get aggresive about it when food is produced.
The Allards don't plan to come back to the park. They think the play area should be closed until all of the squirrels are trapped and removed.
“I don’t think it’s a safe place for children to be in until they solve this problem,” said Debbie Allard---obviously missing the irony of her words.
Doh! Debbie! You ARE part of the problem!
Don't let the door hit 'ya on the way out!
