You realize that squirrels are poised to take over the planet, right? That is the reason for the notice on food detailing the peanut status of the food factory. Hidden messages to the squirrel underlings and troop leaders. Here is a picture of one of them. Shortly after this picture was taken, he was taken away and shot for dereliction of duty-revealing self to enemy.

edit - For lack of a single vowel, an entire plan was laid to waste. furthermore, i feel dirty for having had to echo this picture to a more constant provider.

You do realize that picture isn't working? Or perhaps the squirrels hacked into your post and deleted the image. :P

I tried to think of something witty to put here.

Needless to say, I failed.

Eh, both Gray and Black Squirrels are okay. The ones you have to watch for are the Red Squirrels, or, in some cases, Demon Squirrels.

It's the flying squirrels that are truly demonic.

Why do you make the needless distinction between squirrels and demonic squirrels? They are one and the same. There is no reasoning with the squirrels; they are dedicated to the destruction of the universe as we know it.

Demonic roaches, on the other hand, are okay, as they serve as welcome comic relief to all evil plans of cosmic dominion.

My dog does a better job hacking than the squirrels.

Although they certainly do distract her. :P

I noticed this just now... You were in Italy?

Anyway, I tried this with pigeons too, but it was amazing! They didn't did me any harm.

You seem to be insinuating that I didn't make it myself.

Anyway, you'll have to try a lot harder before I reveal my Secret Stash O' Spam. Or just, you know, quote my posts so you can see the URL.

So, in a pointless attempt to steer this back to an actual topic... when is the next act/part/segment/piece/bit/chunk/squirrel/section/chapter due?

That's probably the funniest thing I've read in a long time.

I need my sense of humor adjusted.

Why, yes. -X- enjoyed it. His favorite part was seeing Venice. The Leaning Tower of Pisa look a lot bigger in real life, doesn't it?

Silly rats! You ALWAYS have to fear cats! They are there whether you realize it or not! I learned that the hard way.

Is it just me or was this chapter rather short? Whether it was length or content, I fear my craving was not satisfied. Where is Aran and Riibu? How do those in Shadow Vale fare? Where did Dintiradan flee to and can he make use of the plague even though it's not of snakes?

AAARRRGGGGGG! So many loose ends I can't keep track.

Tell the board to stop spinning.

This is why I waited to watch LotR until the whole trillogy was out and rented them all at the same time. I can't stand the suspense...

Yes, it was. For both length and content. But Dikiyoba had to get something up, both to save the off-track topic and to at least advance the story a little.

Yes, it was. But it satisfied my Dikistori craving for today. That said, I didn't know Wererats could choose what form they took.

Wow... and yet again, I can't even grasp at the slightest idea of what's going to happen next.

Good stuff... I need to go play Rats Aplenty.

Rats. Too bad TM is with them to flame his way out of the trap. Actually that might be a way out of Shadowvale. Of course then there would be a flood and ruin all the carpeting.
