Weekly World News alert:
Five injured as greedy squirrel explodes.

Publication: Weekly World News (via the Sun)
Date: 19 Sept. 2011

As a long time fan of the Weekly World News, I hope to see them return to their glory days.

As a Bay Area football fan, I feel much the same about the 49ers and the Raiders.

What the WWN needs is another great recurring character like Bat Boy back in the 1980's or the alien that endorses presidential candidates from the 1990s, a character used to this day.

The exploding greedy squirrel, alas, will not be that character.

As for what the Raiders and 49ers need, it's probably new ownership.

Also alas.

That's a chipmunk! But you knew that, right? ;-)

Grr. Thanks for pointing it out. I hate making mistakes like that and I make a lot more of them now than I used to.

Neither squirrels nor chipmunks are animals to be taken lightly.
They both have meanstreaks.
