When squirrels attack

 

Got a PB & J?

Got a PB & J?

From the Norwich (CT) Remainder:

 

 

Both my sons have extremely life-threatening peanut allergies, and we try to keep our home and of course our yard safe for them to play in. Recently, squirrels have been bringing in peanuts from other people’s feeders and burying them in our yard – a huge health and safety issue for us! Thank goodness I have been finding them before our 4-and 2- year-olds do! Please, please feed the squirrels birdseed, sunflowers, grapes – anything but peanuts!

    Stick em UP!! Or I take the shell off!!!
    Teen Arrested for Eating Peanut Butter Sandwich atNEW YORK CITY –
    Seventeen year old Larry Reynolds was arrested in his high school’s cafeteria yesterday for eating a sandwich containing peanut butter. The school which Reynolds attends had just banned the
    potentially lethal substance after learning that there was a 1 in 50 Million chance that a student could die from a peanut butter allergy attack.
    Said one school administrator, “Although we have never had a student suffer an allergy attack do to exposure to peanut butter in the entire 94 year history of our school, we know that it is wrong to take chances with the lives of our students. That is why we banned this potentially life-threatening food.”

    The Administrator continued by saying, “Our school has a zero tolerance policy for all deadly substances. Larry Reynolds knew the rule and he
    deliberately broke it. His actions showed a careless disregard for the lives of his fellow students. We see no difference between bringing peanut butter to school or bringing cyanide or sarin nerve gas.
    We had no choice but to have him arrested.”

    Reynold’s bail was set at 2 million dollars. If he is found guilty of bringing peanut butter to school he could be sentenced to 25 years to life.

    Sucks to be him!!!
    Back to Basils!!!
    Your peanut eating pal,

    My son (now 16) has a serious peanut allergy, so I am not disposed to make fun of this writer. But the issue at hand seems to involve the 2 and 4 year old kids picking the nuts up off the ground. Doesn’t this come under the category of never eating anything off the ground?

      Well, Mommy has told them about the “five second rule”. But that really applies only to food that falls on the floor, not stuff you find raiding squirrel caches.
