So instead of a standard GTP, you're now doing a standard caption for those cartoons you just can't get rid of?

Do you have a squirrels at sea, too? I can just see the pathetic Johnny Depp imitation by the lead squirrel with eye makeup, feathered hat and cutlass.

This reminds me of that great scene at the end of INDEPENDENCE DAY when the drunken lush crop duster pilot saves the world. "Sorry I'm late mister president but I'm finally here to save your asses with this huge fighter plane. But first, a whiskey and a slight spray of DDT."

"But the aliens are wearing DEET."

"Doesn't matter Sir! I will look them in the whites of their yellow, lizard-like eyes and fire my missile into their soft spots."

"Shove it down their throats"

"I'll stick it where the sun don't shine!"

"Walnut guns to the ready. Bash their nuts."

I'd rather have one I didn't have to edit in my mind every time.

"Bleeping squirrels!" just doesn't have the same effect.

I agree, it's annoying the way people keep submitting profane captions. And it's embarrassing to me when I have to use them because they're the funniest ones. I did clean up cartoon 67, so you can now read that one, Key.

This is funny because of the last one...

I have a friend who can relate. They took over her attic and ate all the insulation...

Kiersten said...

Thanks.

Funny tidbit--I didn't actually know what the "F" word was until high school. Ah, childhood.

I'll try to submit more, and be funnier. I will admit those words add punch; it's hard to compete.

Also, just read that Cook won. Are you happy?

Laughed till my nipples thwapped against the keyboard.

This only makes sense because of the first one, though the squirrel in the plane helps.

As a phrase, it's definitely here to stay. I'm adopting it myself as a replacement for buggerbollocksbastardarse, my current stock knee-jerk expletive. Should play better in supermarkets when they're out of what I want...

For the record, "I'm safe! It's a heat seeker..." was not mine, though I do like it.

Kiersten, you don't need to beep. Just find another word that works for you.

I don't think Pratchett has ever used the word "fuck" in his work but he suggests it fairly frequently. Some alternatives, not all from Pratchett, are: effing, freaking, frigging, flipping, bloody, sodding and 'kin.

writtenwyrdd said...

Kiersten, you can always swap frigging for fucking, or use effing, mother humping, dratted, stupid, idiotic, or any number of quasi-swear-words or alternatives. It might be a vocabulary expansion exercise, even!

writtenwyrdd said...

Oh, and like vigilante sorcerers, the nexus of time travel itself and zombie cows, I think fucking squirrels has entered the lexicon. It's a keeper.

BuffySquirrel said...

Man, I gotta get me one of those.

Nancy Beck said...

OMG - this is brilliant! :-)

talpianna said...

Oh, come on, Kiersten, we all know that you are delicate, like a Rottweiler...

Kiersten said...

I prefer delicate like a wrought iron fence.

As I watch not one, not two, but THREE pairs of squirrels chasing each other around the lawn, getting ready to make the next batch of baby squirrels, I realize the first batch must have left the nest already, which means they might have five or six litters this summer, which means I really hope they can't see that picture through the dining room window, because if they figure out how to make one of those, I am in serious trouble.
