Debbie (Ohi) with a Crazed Squirrel - by Amanda Bohnhoff

CrazedSquirrel AB

The drawing above is what finally tipped me over the edge in terms of motivation to start this collection of Proof The Squirrels Are Trying To Take Over The World (it is NOT a new blog! Honest!). I've been getting SOOOOOO much great stuff from friends re: the Evilitude Of Squirrels, but nowhere to collect it.

Amanda's mom, speculative fiction author Maya Bohnhoff, posted the above image in Facebook with the comment:

This is something Amanda drew when I told her her kitty cat looked more like a crazed squirrel. Naturally, this called for her to insert Debbie Ohi into the drawing.

Heh. It's my current Facebook profile pic.

Maya is not only a fantastic writer but also performs with her husband Jeff and daughter Kristine. Check out some of the sample tracks of their Grated Hits CD, for example....especially TRACK 5, which mentions squirrels!

Beware The Squirrel: Yes, the world NEEDS this blog

I know you're all wondering the same thing: does the world really NEED yet another "beware of the squirrels because they're eeeevil and taking over the world" blog?

My answer: YES.

A secondary reason: So many people have been sending me such informative and important cautionary material like the video above that it's clear that the scuridific beasts are succeeding in their insidious plot of global domination.

The world MUST be warned.


p.s. This really ISN'T  a new blog but rather an extension of, focusing on Evil Squirrel Miscellany. At least that's my justification.
