“Are you really taking a picture of me right now?” – That squirrel right there^
Via The Sun:
THIS little creature got into squir-hell after it became trapped in a storm drain.
The cute nut-eater had to be rescued by emergency workers after it got stuck in the middle of a road in Germany.
It attempted to fit through a hole in the drain, but only managed to squeeze its head through the small gap.
Police in the town of Isernhagen were called out by a worried motorist after he nearly ran over the squirrel.
They prised up the drain and tried to pop him out but he would not budge.
After 15 minutes of effort the rodent was eventually freed when a caring housewife provided a bottle of OLIVE OIL.
One policeman said: “We wanted to take him to a vet’s for a check-up, but he was having none of it.”
“He legged it straight away into a garden and up a tree, which is where he belongs I suppose.”
OK so I have highlighted my favourite parts of this article. “The cute nut-eater” was also the nickname for the easy girl in my high school. Glorious gal, I of course know that through hearsay.
“It attempted to fit through a hole in the drain, but only managed to squeeze its head through the small gap.” – Look at the cute little rascal… sorry fella, your whiskers don’t work. You were dealt a rough hand.
They “tried to pop him out” – Clearly we need the video link for this one. How many burly police officers does it take to pop a little rodent out of a storm drain cover? More than were on the scene… or just one housewife with plenty of lube.
“eventually freed when a caring housewife provided a bottle of OLIVE OIL.” – For the record, as she approached with the oil they thought she wanted to cook the poor thing. Why olive oil you ask? Why not.
“We wanted to take him to a vet’s for a check-up, but he was having none of it.” – “Hey little fella, do you want to go to the vet?” “No, I’ll have none of that, thank you”
