When Zooey of zoolatry.blogspot.com suggested that I post something for NOMS, I immediately thought of sunflower seeds and nomnomnom good. Nope that wasn’t it. Today, August 5, is NOMS day and that stands for Not Of My Species.

A day to “celebrate” (or make fun of … or whatever!)
a species other than yourself!!!
I’m going to ignore the easy stuff. I thought of doing peeps but that’s low hanging fruit. So I put my thinking cap on and got inspiration
What’s the dumbest species of all? I mean dee you emm dumb?
It’s the squirrel. I’ve only met one semi-smart one in my life and he had a moose to do the brain work.
We birds get blamed for stuff squirrels do like poop landing on your head when you walk under a tree. We even get blamed for bombing someone when it was actually a flying squirrel.  Squirrels just take over a tree and don’t share space with birds. When squirrels move in, it’s time for birds to move out because “there goes the neighborhood”.
Isn’t that right, Zooey?

  1. You’re right Kismet……birds do get blamed for a lot of white splashes on shoulders and heads……Such a shame. Anyone can just look at your innocent face and know that your poop lands on authorized surfaces only!

    Hugs, Teddy
