We have a bit of a squirrel problem. As in there are hundreds living around our house. They get into the garage, the shed, the lawn mower, the boat. They drive my dog insane by teasing her. They devour every bit of bird seed I put out for the birds. So Sam asked if he could shoot one with his bb gun. Mitch said, "Sure, if you want to clean it and eat it." Sam said, "Okay! If I get it will you show me how to clean it?" Mitch said, "......um....... (sigh)..... I guess." Then Sam ran off to ready his weapon and hunt. When he was gone Mitch said, "Well, that backfired."
Sam has been hunting the squirrels for days and I have been rooting for the squirrels because I'm a softy and I didn't really think Sam had a chance to get them with the spring-action bb gun he's got. I thought even if he did manage to hit one he might bruise it, piss it off maybe, but not kill it. I was wrong. He got one this morning so he's proudly waiting for his dad to come home from work so they can skin it and cook it together. GROSS. Mitch will be SO HAPPY. Anybody have any good squirrel recipes?
