If Saddam only knew

One smart squirrel

I found a funny picture of a squirrel in clothes at lunchtime while searching for dog outfits (don’t ask). So I followed the trail that led back to where it came from. And it’s actually pretty disturbing stuff.

Saddam’s execution

I know that there’s already something slightly peculiar about the kind of person who would domesticate a squirrel and then dress it up in outfits as a business. But the woman who does it used to be an American military pin-up and carries some of that war-mongering baggage with her into this new (already weird) venture. The above image is a dramatic reconstruction of the preparation of Saddam’s execution apparatus. She also does an image of the squirrel crying for the death of a soldier who bravely/stupidly threw themselves on a grenade. The tastelessness is quite incredible. I now feel that somewhere out there on the web is a reconstruction of Auschwitz with meerkats dressed up as stormtroopers lording it over a pack of ferrets.

If you’re an American patriot, please accept my apologies for being a woolly, liberal pacifist.

You can see more of the phenomenon that is Sugarbush Squirrel here.

    The real achievement is getting the squirrels dressed up without getting attacked by their big scratchy claws.
