Here’s another photo I took during my trip to the local park during my week off back in May. If this doesn’t look like a hitchhiking squirrel, I don’t know what does. Sure, he doesn’t have the thumb out, but squirrels don’t have opposable thumbs that would allow them to correctly gesture for a free ride. And I guess his mother never warned him about the dangers of accepting rides with strangers. What if the next car to come along is being driven by an axe murderer? Or Large Marge? Or a drunk skunk?
My first order of business is to nominate this fellow as this week’s Saturday Squirrel. My second will be to call him a cab.
Have a great weekend everyone… and don’t pick up any strange critters out there!
