Betcha Can’t Eat Just One

Mmmmmm, I need to search the picnic grounds for some dip!

Last year when I showed off my photos of a squirrel delightfully licking the fake cheese product out of a discarded package of dipping sticks, it was noted in the comments that even our animal friends’ taste buds seem to be attracted by the non-natural makeup of our junk food.  This squirrel is happily gnawing on what appears to be some kind of potato chip he found in the park.  While I’m sure he finds chips just as delicious as humans do, I hope the generous coating of salt and Dog only knows what other chemicals that chip has been doused with don’t give him all kinds of health problems.  Squirrels appear stressed out enough… the last thing they need is a hypertension diagnosis on top of it.

Oh well, I’m sure a salty snack now and then won’t actually hurt him.  And it certainly helped get him in the Saturday Squirrel spotlight…

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Looks like one of those Pringles “in a can” type chips perhaps – he’ll need a BIG drink of water after all that salt!


    • The first picture I took of him was from the side, and it looks like he was eating a french fry! Then he turned and gave me this better look… and that does look like a Pringle. Once you pop, you can’t stop! I hope he can reach the drinking fountain…

    That squirrel is probably going to spend the rest of the day thinking, “why am I so dang thirsty?” Poor little guy needs a Pepsi to wash that chip down!

    • LOL! Pepsi is the one thing I probably wouldn’t share with a squirrel… and not just because I’m selfish! The park would be dangerous with a bunch of caffeine junkie squirrels running around!

    You certainly can’t beat a good chemically-covered crisp.

  4. Awwww look at those cute little squirrel hands. That is so precious.

    On a stupid note… I’m driving down road this morning and the Vance Joy song “Saturday Sun” comes on. All I can think of is “Saturday Squirrel.”

  5. Chips, dips, and squirrels. Sounds about right for summertime pleasures.

    Squirrels seem to eat just about anything, huh? Much like goats… 😛

    • I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a squirrel eating the grass before…. but they love all kinds of junk food! They’d be out of shape just like us if we left more out for them…
