"There I was looking at this plump out-of-shape critter and I thought to myself that looks tastier than my leftover chicken breast. So wanting to be more like MazonCreekRich (who doesn't), I quickly swiped the hamster from its wheel (it's no squirrel but....). Imagine my surprise when the little guy fainted from fear and all the electricity went out at Fool HQ! Not wanting to work without A/C, or wait as I "cover and cook on low setting for 8 hours*," I carefully replaced him in his cage. He didn't wake up for a couple hours.

My apologies for any site related outages that may have occurred during this time.

Who promises not to go in the server room ever again.

I'm from Tennessee, so I know what I'm talking about. Nobody, and I mean nobody, cooks their squirrels with potatoes. The potatoes must be hard fried in the "squirrel grease", until crispy, golden brown. Allrecipes is usually the stuff, but this is a serious goof.


And to get completely off thread. My feist mix died recently, after many years of faithful service. His epitaph:

"Here lies my beloved Charlie,
Feared by squirrels throughout the land;
As a dog, he was small in stature,
But in life, he was a big, big man."
