Purple people eater!

An Irish* Proverb

May the wind be at your back.

May the road rise to meet you.

And may your 15 minutes of fame never mean the local news station placing a descriptor below your name reading “FOUND PURPLE SQUIRREL.”

(photos from The Purple Squirrel’s facebook page. YES. FACEBOOK PAGE.)

1. Dramatic purple squirrel is dramatic!

2. Ravens fan? Kill it with fire?

3. This is what happens when The Care Bears and The Chipmunks don’t practice safe sex. [Care Bear whore stare]

4. Dramatic Purple Squirrels? BAND NAME.

5. David Highfield. Rockin’ the jeans. Get on with your bad self. [snap snap]

*Not really, doofus.

    Any chance the squirrel was connected to the river turning purple a while back?

    Unfortunately, this may be the sign of fracking poisoning:

    It may also be a sign that Siouxee and the Banshees are making a comeback.

      After seeing pics of Glen Danzig carrying cat litter, I’ve given up hope of a Siouxee and the Banshees comeback :)

    The squirrel’s problem is simple – it ate too many Grape Nuts.

    I’m personally liking the Port-A-Potty theory. In which case, EW!

    For me, the best part about this squirrel is that I first heard about it when Pee Wee Herman tweeted a photo. I really wish all of my news was delivered that way.

    This must be the first sign of the Mayan Apocalypse.
