Fridays Follies

The Other Animals Are Agin' Us

Did you see that in the paper the other day about those carp in the Mississippi River jumping into boats and bonking fisherman in the head? It's true. They're called big head carp, they're from Asia and they're attacking and severely injuring many fisherman.

Biologists claim the roar of boat motors agitates and excites these carp and they jump towards the sound but I think these biologists are naively missing an obvious connection. Fish are attacking fisherman. For the fish it's get them before they get you, kill or be killed. Even if these fisherman are practicing catch and release, that's a very painful, embarrassing experience for any fish and apparently they have had it.

What about the increase in mountain lion attacks? Great White sharks moving closer to shore? Moose have been showing up in towns and stomping on people. A squirrel was in my living room last spring. Am I the only one that sees a pattern here? People, wise up! The other animals are against us. It doesn't take a genius to see there's an inter-species conspiracy to thwart the urban expansion of man.

How do the squirrels fit in? Surveillance. They spy on what we people are doing in the cities and report back to the bigger species out there on the front lines.

And taken together these other species represent walking, we hope not yet talking, scratching, biting weapons of mass destruction. And if these other species can convince the insect world, for example a well known anti-human group like the killer bees, to join up our way of life and our democracy could be history.

The skeptical may ask why would these other species want to hurt us? Obviously, they hate us. They are jealous of our way of life. We swim in chlorinated, safe environment pools, then towel off and have an adult beverage. They are stuck eating sludge in the Mississippi, a river polluted by guess who: their mortal enemy man. And to top it all off we eat them.

This invasion of Asian carp is no accident. This is stage one of their well planned attack. We ignore the obvious at our own peril.

We can no longer sit back and wait for them to attack us. It's time we adopt a new doctrine regarding these other animals. We have to wipe out any and all species who are a lined against us, wherever they are. We can not rest until every big head carp, great white shark, mountain lion, moose and squirrel and any other species that associates with them are defeated.

If the U.N. wants to get involved fine, if not we can do it alone. Of course the British will show up, they always do, but we will fight to protect our way of life. And if you don't agree, you're an unpatriotic idiot who hates America.

Dazd Intelligence Service (DIS) has obtained the following photographs to support such a claim. We have been working covertly to bring to your attention about Mammal Uber Domination, or M.U.D. for short.

The leader of M.U.D. seemingly harmless relaxing in his underground bunker.

A spy well versed in the art of disguise. Unrecognizable as he blends in with others unable to distinguish his true nature.

Attack squads poised to strike at any given moment. With a few quick changes, he quickly blends in like the spy.

But Dazd has recruited a few people to assist him in thwarting such terroist activities. Yes folks, these people are well trained in the arts of combat and survival.

Wheww! Glad you are on top of this, I was beginning to think it was just me.

I couldn't agree with you more. Cicadas attack me all the time, and there's a squirrel that deliberately drops nuts on our heads when we are on the deck ... stay sharp!

Mrs. Who said...

Thank God someone is finally onto the squirrels...

but can you please send out your agents to do something about the lovebugs? They're evil, pure evil. Damn suicide splatterers on my car.
