That's just too funny. Since it will appeal to my DH and DS's twisted sense of humor, I'm going to snag it for them. Too, too funny.

That is just plain sick! It is MY kind of humour. Great shot photolady! I think the Joe on the right looks the most realistic!

I had to think for a moment of why I was laughing and then I realized it was my initial reaction. My first thought was "oh that's soooo photoshopped!!!" Then I realized the guys were GI Joes!!:roflhard: :roflhard:

I agree with you, I don't see the humor in it...I have yet to see the humor in death, no matter what being has died.

Wow I have a great idea..Hang onto those "G.I.Joes", cruise around and look for a neighbors pet cat (that has bit the big one) and title it "Sabertooth Tiger"....

its not like she killed the silly squirrel, besides, she probably didnt take the picture, maybe she found it online or something, give her the benefit of the doubt

Um, what did you expect when you opened it up? Did you not read the title? There's nothing gruesome about it. Squirrels die everyday of many causes. This has no blood, guts, or gore. It's simply a dead animal someone found and put some dolls up by it to be silly.

No one has forced anyone to look at this. Use your back button if you're offended.

Let's all be calm and rational about this. It's obviously not to everyone's taste and that's okay. Let's let this go and get back to knitting. :thumbsup:

It's call Dark Humor. There is also slap-stick comedy. It takes all kinds. I do not think the squirrel was harmed in order to do this. I think photolady was just experimenting with her talent.

Photolady didn't take this picture, I've seen it elsewhere on the 'net, so don't go thinking she's out stalking dead animals just for amusement. It's a harmless post of something that some people might find amusing.

I personally don't think it's especially funny either, but I don't think any less of those of you who do. To each his/her own!

You have squirrels like that, too?
UGH! I wish there was a way to keep the squirrels out of the bird feed.
The only thing I've found to work, SO FAR, is, this long feeder, which has a spring in it, and, if anything heavy like a squirrel gets on it, the doors get pulled shut, so, no bird feed available.

I got this photo off the internet. Someone sent it to me.
Glad you all liked it, though.

Squirrels can be a terrible nuisance, especially to those of us who
are trying to feed wild birds. This was a steam vent, and I thought it was pretty creative, whoever did it, and funny.:cheering:

Ummm, thought this thread was done...Animals are "Gods" creatures TOO....helpless ones....4 initials here:PETA

Does PETA have a solution to keeping squirrels out of wild bird feeders?
The cayenne pepper powder sold in pet stores does NOT work.
Squirrels are not my favorite animal, due to the fact that they gorge themselves every minute they can, on the expensive wild bird food I put out for the BIRDS. My garden has been recognized as a habitat for wild birds and monarch butterflies. Not squirrels.
By the way, in the future, I will be sure to tell everyone if a photo I post is MINE, or not.
So far, I think I've done that.

I think the safest thing to do would be either don't post pictures of dead animals on a knitting forum, or, specify that the post may contain offensive material. Not all of us find pictures of dead animals to be hilarious regardless of who took the picture.

I've kept my mouth shut on a lot of issues on this forum that I personally have found highly offensive because honestly, what's the point of arguing with people on a forum? However, I find it absolutely absurd so many people have gotten offended because others have been offended. One would think the simplest thing to do would be to apologize for posting something offensive instead of taking the offense and getting mad at those who have been offended.

I guess the thing that bothers me the most is I guarantee if it were a picture of a dead dog or cat no one would find it funny.

There are those of us who view all animals equally and don't find the death of any animal funny no matter how much of a "nuisance" they are considered to be by others.

Personally, I find people to be more of a nuisance than any animal but that wouldn't make it appropriate for me to post a picture of a dead person in the same context.

Anyway, I've made my point...argue it if you wish, I won't be responding to this thread again.

What one person finds funny, another doesn't. Such is life. Since this topic is taking a turn for the worse I'm closing it at least for now.
