starcraft.man reporting in. Reconnaissance has revealed the downright unthinkable. An entire fleet of StarSquirrels sitting in orbit. You heard right. StarSquirrels. You know..... squirrels. But - FROM SPACE!!!

They've caught us off guard, well in advance of the prepared for Squirrel Week slated for August 22-29. It's unbelievable, they number in the MILLIONS... And not mild mannered like the regular squirrels we've come to expect. They're crazy, they've come to take over!!

I.... oh no, they spotted me. I'm going to have to cut..... they're...... *static*

No requirements to join, just put a squirrel in your avatar pic and have fun. Optionally, stuff your cheeks full of nuts while trying to crawl up a tree. If you don't fancy fussing with GIMP or another image editor, see here (http://lutralutra.co.uk/squirrelizer/) for a quick and easy way.

Disclaimer: I take absolutely, NO responsibility for any humour, hilarity, randomness, insanity and/or nuttiness that may ensue. All liability is hereby, redirected, in full, unto The Staff (especially I'm told by bodhi, dmizer and Matthew). Why? Because, limited liability is all the rage these days. Thanks a bunch. :)

Feel free to add other randomness to this thread, we should probably collect it all in one place. Oh and if your wondering, yes, my amazing GIMP skillz made those images, cprofitt helped me find the source images.
