Imponderable #134: Faster, Squirrel! Kill! Kill!

30 Jun

June 30, 2017

This is the first of two editions of the Imponderable that The Editors and Staff call Wild Kingdom Animal Antics. (It gives us an excuse to come up with a new logo.) We’ve featured some bizarre animal stories in the past, but these are in a class by themselves. 

The source for this story is not a site I am familiar with but if this is true then we have a brand new super-villain on our hands. The odds of it being true are about nil to one, but hey, that’s what makes a good story.

In a nutshell, so to speak, a guy’s animal trainer ex-gf trained a pack of squirrels to attack him. And like you’d expect, the squirrels went for his nuts. But as I said above, we have the makings of a super-villain here. “She was partially hidden behind some bushes, but I could clearly see her and hear her. She was yelling orders at the squirrels and telling them to attack me.” 

This guy was just proof of concept. Having established that squirrels can be trained to attack, I’m sure the next step for her is to train them to rob banks. How long will it be until she has them hacking the U.S. Presidential election?

I admit up front (OK, at the end) that I don’t believe this for a single second. But who cares? 

Is this story more or less real than anything you see on CNN?
The question is Imponderable.


And thank you Jimbo for bringing this to my attention!



Imponderable #57: Russia, Bali

Brace yourselves, this is a good one.

Thanks to Jimbo, I have for you this week a pair of perfectly complimentary news stories.

Let’s begin in Russia.

Just look at that picture, she really is a cute kid. What? That’s the cow? Sorry.

And now, let’s travel to Bali.

Hmm. Based on the first story, perhaps he was right. Maybe, just maybe, it really was a beautiful woman trying to seduce him by… disguising herself as a cow… and… uh… wooing him.

Could that really be the case?

The question is Imp- oh not it’s not; I can’t even finish typing it.

And here is the video. By the way, I apologize in advance for the annoying guy. And what the heck is Buzz: 60 anyway?
