They Really Are Out to Get Us.

Friday, January 20, 2006

A little tragic humor for everyone on Friday.
I knew there was something shady about those squirrels. I just knew it. They always lurk around campus and steal food and other things. Apparently that was just reconnaissance, the real battles are still to come. They've even going kamikaze!
An article from today's Star Tribune Online:
Woman dies after squirrel plugs propane line
BEMIDJI, Minn. — A woman is dead and a man hospitalized after a squirrel became lodged in a pipe between the furnace and the chimney, causing propane fumes to enter a rural Bemidji home.

The Hubbard County sheriff said John Bennett and Maxine Tischman, 67, were found lying on the floor of the home. Tischman was pronounced dead at the scene. Bennett, who is in his 70s, was taken to North Country Hospital in Bemidji.

Sheriff Gary Mills said investigators found the squirrel lodged in the three-inch pipe after locating strong propane fumes in the area near the furnace.

Have a good weekend! Beware of the squirrels!

This is Darwinism at its finest. You'd think that the noxious fumes would be enough to convince the couple that something was wrong. Evidently not so in this case....

Maxine: John, did you fart?

John: No honey, I was just gonna ask you the same thing. Pass the butter.

*A few minutes later*

Maxine: (Consciousness fading...) John... are you... sure you... didn't fart... because it smells... a lot... like propane... in here...

John: (Consciousness fading...) Yes... Maxine... I think... I'd... know if... gas was... passing... between... my... ass cheeks... Maybe... it... really... is... propane...

(They pass out)
