I had squirrel just once. One of the girls in my grade school came from Kentucky. She had fried squirrel for lunch and offered me a piece. It was quite good. Not gamey at all.

But I'll eat most anything breaded and fried.

I had squirrel just once, too. My then husband used to slingshot pebbles at squirrels to keep them away from the bird feeder. One day he got a native Colorado Abert's black squirrel right between the eyes. We ate it, so its life wouldn't have been a "waste." I was NOT impressed. And this was a "corn fed" squirrel at that.

When I told my Dad about the incident, he said that he would have to be at gun point to ever eat a squirrel again. Apparently, he and his older brother often shot squirrel back in Kentucky to put meat on the table during the Depression.

So leave poor squirell nutkin alone, y'all!

I wonder what the statute of limitations is on killing an endangered Abert?

Oh, believe me, we BOTH felt guilty as hell. My ex meant to scare the damn thing, NOT end up eating it. However, if you'd like to turn the ex in to Colorado Fish and Wildlife, pm me, and I'll send you his name and address. Heh!

I was once using a BB gun to scare a bird away so he would stop pecking holes in the house, but the BB went through his eye and killed him.

I was once using an M-80 to clear some dust out of an old desk drawer but it ended up blowing the desk to smithereens.

Once I tried to clean up my yard with a nuclear bomb and the whole freaking town disappeared. I didn't try THAT again. *chuckles* Silly girl. Good times, good times. Live and learn.

What's in between? I'm sorely lacking in munitions knowledge.

Yeah, now we'll have to bring up the time you missed taking the trash out so you made a small black hole to toss the bags into when no one was looking and well, one thing led to another and the entire universe, including time, itself, got sucked into the black hole.

'Member that Pete? You sure had some explaining to do that time.
