Interesting, the LD50 of theobromide for rats and mice is comparable to that of humans. I assume that squirrels are also in that same neighborhood. So hey- eat up, fat squirrel. The chocolate probably isn't going to kill you!

Easy on those Snickers, squirrel. Those things will go straight to your testicles.

So all this time all I needed was a trained squirrel to snag a snickers.

I've actually got an extra skinny one. I'm worried about that guy, actually.

THE FARK squirel (with big nuts) is a Cape Ground Squirell (Xerus inauris) found in southern Africa.

Sure their may be fat squirrels just like there are fat WalMart shoppers, but FARK squirrels are like the gymnasts of humanity - you are about as likely to see a fat one eating candy as you are to see such a gymnast.

Damn fuzzy little bastard. The only good squirrel is one that is currently residing in squirrel stew.

While squirrel are delicious, they are also cute. And smart. I think that's part of the reason they're delicious, actually. Like, octopuses are incredibly intelligent, but not cute, and also delicious. Deer are cute, but not terribly bright, and also delicious. Squirrels are smart and cute, and hence, delicious.

Pigs? Smart.
Cows? Beef isn't that delicious. It's more in the prep.
Turkey? Not delicious, I don't care what time of year it is.
Trout? Smart, by fish standards. Delicious.

Who's squirreling away some nuts?

Squirrel done right is good; my granny made the best squirrel stew ever. Although, I'm pretty sure her special homemade BBQ sauce would make radioactive waste taste good.

Not a fan of octopus, but, I've been told you have to tenderize it first.

I agree about the tastiness of pigs.

Depends on the beef; I consider buffalo to be a member of the beef family; buffalo is awesome.

Wild turkey is better than farm turkey. All dark meat, with the taste of victory

Not a big fan of sea/lake critters not fried and breaded.

That squirrel is so fat it resembles a beaver. I love the video of the squirrel taking candy from a vending machine.

He might benefit from a suet feeder.

I hope he didn't chew a bad nut and wuzzle off.

The ones around Toronto are pretty fat this year too. I've heard the fat squirrel = cold winter thing a few places including my grandma when I was a kid. There was an especially fat squirrel that got the topic started at work today, a buddy's take was the weird spring and dry summer resulted in more acorns, more acorn makes fat squirrels, and fat squirrels are better able to cope with what ever winter we get. So there's that.

Actually probably most acorns aborted on the tree, so many fewer acorns, so maybe the squirrels had to pig out on something else, like maybe corn, garbage or left out pet food.

So, I like how buzzfeed just creates an article/page based solely on all the links the redditors themselves added to the thread.

/buzzfeed is for hacks

She might be onto something there. My dad used to judge the winter on how long the horse grew its hair. The longer the hair the colder the winter. He was correct every year.

Stupid me: fark has done the same thing, but based around buzzfeed.

A squirrel full of sugar? Get him a cup of coffee too, see if he can twitch around so fast he's invisible.
