The Shell Game

Whoa! Look at all this cool shit!

Humans tend to be messy creatures.  It’s one of those animalistic traits that thousands of years of civilization hasn’t quite beaten out of our species yet.  Get a whole bunch of people together in one place where they’re going to be eating and drinking, and you’ll likely need a whole team of maids to clean up after them…

Case in point…. have you ever looked underneath the stands of the softball diamond at your local park?  I took a photo once of the mess that was left behind under the bleachers at a Major League Baseball game… and while drinking alcohol in the city park is verboten, there are plenty of other kinds of snacks to partake of while watching out of shape adults try to play an easier version of baseball.  And many of those snacks are crowd pleasers for our squirrel friends…

I can smell a seed a mile away!

Why do humans throw away all of the good stuff?

Look at all of those empty sunflower seed and peanut shells left behind under the bleachers!  Plenty of free food that doesn’t have to be unburied first!  This week’s Saturday Squirrel is getting his fill while cleaning up the edible mess the spectators left behind.  All natural environmental sustainability in action…

I could use a brewski to go with all of these snacks…

Have a great weekend everyone!

    And a large belch was heard, shaking the bleachers.
    Ah, hell yeah, Mr. Squirrel says.

  2. Talk about batting clean up! Here’s hoping you have a good holiday weekend.

  3. Even though humans are slobs, it’s encouraging to see that SOMETHING benefits from our “slob-ness”……..for the squirrels it’s an all you can eat buffet!
