Look, there are good rodents on both sides of Squirrel on Chipmunk violence.

Build it and they will come.

Seriously.

I, for one, welcome our new Sciuridaen overlords.

“Coincident squirrel uses slinky o shoot chipmunk away from its food”

staged - fake news!

Conscripted into service and certain of their doom, the untrained Distillery Brothers charge into battle fueled by fermented acorn courage.

Or possibly the squirrel was trying to drag it’s food away from the annoying chipmunk but dropped it.
Squirrels are smart, but that does not appear to be the case here.

In my universe, Shoemaker–Levy 9’s encounter with Jupiter was followed by a booming voice intoning, “One hundred and ay-tee!”
