Squirrels Develop A New Taste For Power

Written by

A recent pizza theft by a renegade, power hungry squirrel was first thought to be an isolated and somewhat magical occurrence. However, a new trend is developing as our favorite photo subjects get more ambitious in their dietary choices. A hapless student eating lunch outside turned away for a moment only to discover her pizza slice being squirreled away—perhaps by that same conniving rodent, newly dubbed Mozzerodent by our resident mammal aficionados.

The victim reported that she, “sensed a squirrel right behind,” her, and watched sadly as the theft was carried out. We await the next inevitable attack with a mix of horror and fascination.

    I sat at a table with a group of reasonable Columbia students. They chanced upon this post, and a disappointed freshman qualified some of her criticism by saying, "I guess I just went in with high expectations of Columbia University's student blog." General laughter and a quick, “Well there’s your problem!” followed.

    I can't believe the number of people questioning Bwog's motives in drawing our attention to this new public safety hazard / new power player on campus. It's almost as if Bwog were expected to churn out lofty debates of city politics or Nietzschean critiques of post-war Europolitics that students can e-mail to their state-school friends in order to show off Columbia's intellectual culture. Forgive me, but I'll take pizza security intelligence over pride.

  8. What the squirrel was thinking...  

    "I thought Columbia students were supposed to be smart...did this girl never learn about survival of the fittest...I'm going to take this pizza and I'm going to enjoy it, and afterwards I'm gonna shit it out all over the Core - liberal arts, more like liberal farts...squirrels will survive forever!"

    meanwhile, American squirrel obesity rates continue to rise significantly over the years

  10. Liberal farts?

    Is the squirrel channeling Alan Shemper or something?
