Have you ever been at a dinner or a party with a group of people you get along with and you all have a similar, twisted sense of humor. When it gets toward the end of the night you all start to hit that "punchy" feeling and everything becomes funny, even if it really isn't (note I hang around mainly with people who don't drink - we don't have to). Then someone starts a gag and everyone carries it on until it's gotten beyond ridiculous?
No? Just me?
Well, like 3 years ago I was at our church's annual Adult Fellowship White Elephant Christmas Party.
We had finished dinner and dessert and doing the hysterical gift exchange and were just hanging out talking.
One of the guys (total redneck :) starts talking about the squirrels in their backyard and how he's had to start shooting them because they're causing problems and how someone stole some of the dead ones he had left behind his barn.
Okay, so this was never a real squirrel - but look how cute he is :)
So we tried to come up with reasons why someone would steal a dead squirrel. Then the reasons got more and more ridiculous. And of course we thought they were more and more hilarious.
Yesterday I was trying to catch up on some of y'all's blog posts and I found my way over to Simon's blog where he is asking what he should give away for his 250 followers contest. One of his options is a squirrel. And I immediately thought about this list and decided I would post it for your reading amusement.
