This is Like Nothing You've Ever Seen Before. I Promise.

Oh. My. Heavens.

I went trolling Google images tonight for a crowd of squirrels in honor of the Loyal Friend & Writer award that Matt Delman bestowed on me when I found...

SUGAR BUSH SQUIRREL.

I will wait. You must, must, must click on the link. Swallow that coffee and make sure there's something soft for your jaw to land on.

What? You're too lazy to click on the link? Well, here are some snippets of Sugar Bush Squirrel, who is apparently the most photographed squirrel in the world. You really have to click on the link to read the whole story and see the gazillion squirrel pictures posted there. Sugar Bush even does news broadcasts. On the Squirrel News Network.







Yes, that's Sugar Bush Squirrel as Nostradomus. There's one of Sarah Palin too, but I couldn't bring myself to post it on my blog. You'll just have to scroll for it.

Folks, I just can't top Sugar Bush Squirrel.

However, I want to thank Matt for the wonderful award and pass it on to my friends and followers. I'm getting close to 100 followers- yay! I love awards, but I hate always knowing that I've left someone out. This award is for loyal friends and writers so if you check out Sugar Bush Squirrel and leave a comment for this post, you've earned yourself the award.

You guys rock!

Alright (or All right), the squirrel is terminally cute. My daughters saw squirrels for the first time in St James Park, London, last year, and now want to move there permanently just so they can feed them.

Michelle Gregory said...

ok, i read that Squirrel is a pet now, but really, how do they get it to sit still for the wardrobe changes and the photo shoots?

Guinevere said...

Those pics are crazy! My cat is theoretically "tame" (as much as cats ever are) and it takes two people to give her medication, forget about costumes. I can't imagine getting a squirrel dressed and posed!

On the subject of adorable squirrels, have you ever seen these guys from UCLA?

So cute!

Congratulations on your award Stephanie!

Wendy Sparrow said...

Wow. That squirrel is a serious nut. :) Awesome.

Shannon O'Donnell said...

ROFL! OMG! If I knew more of those little things, I'd write them, too! I. am. dying. over. here. (and my students were doing silent writing, so now it's not so silent). Stephanie, you totally made my day! :-)

Natalie said...

Oh my, those are hilarious. Congrats to you Stephanie!

Deb@RGRamblings said...

You're right, I've never seen anything like that before - he's awefully cute though! Congrats on the award!

Bane of Anubis said...

That's awesome -- my wife will love these. Thanks for sharing.

Matthew Delman said...

I especially love Sugar Bush Squirrel on guard duty. Something about a gun-toting squirrel just makes me laugh out loud.

Debra Giuffrida said...

Congrats on the award! Love the squirrels! How's the novel coming?

Michele Emrath said...

That. Is. SO. WRONG! Does no one see how weird that is? First of all, how do you get a squirrel to wear clothing? And how does one come up with all of that scenery FOR A SQUIRREL? I can't even think about the other half of your post - yeah, yeah, loyalty's great - Sugar Puff or whatever has his own calendar! I'm totally getting one for you! Just email me your address and it's on its way. :P

Voidwalker said...

LOL... That's a whole lot of deeply irritated, yet submissive, squirrel pictures. I'm sure the squirrel doesn't harbor any ill will to it's master for dressing it up more than a 6 year old's Barbie.

Susan R. Mills said...

I never really cared for squirrels, but dang, he is cute. Congrats on your award.

Stephanie Thornton said...

Susan- I only like little squirrels. Big ones are kind of creepy.

Voidwalker- I was thinking that myself. I wonder if the little guy has a voodoo doll of his "owner?"

Michele- Aren't the calendars crazy?! I alternated between shock, horror, and hilarity as I went thought that last night.

Debra- I'm on the last couple rounds of revisions before I query. Yay!

Matt- I've seen Sugar Bush on Google in those pics without knowing who he was. They are pretty hilarious.

Bane- You're welcome! Why post about writing when you can post about costumed squirrels?

Deb- I think Sugar Bush belongs in Vegas. It's that weird.

Natalie- Thanks!

Shannon- Don't you hate it when that happens in class? :)

Wendy- Nice pun.

Tamika- Thanks!

Guinevere- I haven't seen those. I'll have to check them out!

Michelle- I was wondering the same thing about the sets.

Gary- My daughter loves squirrels too. She likes to interpret what they're chirping. :) Do you not have squirrels Down Under?

Natalie Murphy said...

Haha cute pictures, LOL!

Jemi Fraser said...

Wow. Funny and just a little creepy :) Maybe whoever has the time to dress, pose and make sets for a squirrel could come and clean my house for me! Funny stuff.

Congrats on the award :)

Lisa and Laura said...

Those squirrels are totally creepy. Squirrels in general sort of freak me out. They're like wild rats that live in trees. Ugh.

Terresa said...

Move over cat lovers, here comes the squirrels!

The romantic query letter and the happy-ever-after said...

Felicitations my dear, but I'm not much for squirrels since on jumped in my friend's Dell's hair when we were kids. It is mad I know this but it is how I feel even if this one is cute in is outfits.
Have a lovely weekend.

Katie Ganshert said...

Congrats on the award! What funny squirrel pictures!

Hi...Sugar Bush Squirrel here...glad you all like my web site and hope you keep watching for new and exciting things from me in the future. My calendars are selling like crazy and I am working on video for my new movie. Drop me a line at SugarBushSquirrel@hotmail.com and bookmark SugarBushSquirrel.com. I now have over 3000 outfits and love the attention Kelly showers on me. I'd just go nuts if I couldn't pose and play in all of my sets every day that she builds for me. Fun-fun-fun! We love coming up with new ideas so let me hear from all of you and have a great 2010! Best, Sugar Bush Squirrel

Dawn Simon said...

Sugar Bush Squirrel is awesome! I also love the pic (earlier post) of the squirrels with the light sabers--so fun!

OMG, I just noticed Sugar Bush Squirrel posted before I did! Virtual celeb siting! ;)

Funny that we've both had squirrels on the brain.

Gary Corby said...

Stephanie, here in the land of marsupials we have possums instead of squirrels.

Lots, and lots, of possums.

ann foxlee said...

OK, I probably spent a half hour looking at all those squirrel pics! I can't believe you waited for me that whole time :-)
