What gives? Why would you want to insult squirrels? At least they have a productive function in the natural world.
HA! You’re right about the squirrels - they at least have the sense to gather their own nuts and stash them for winter rather than wait for someone to give them another squirrels nuts. And if Katrina came they wouldn’t be standing their waiting for another squirrel to do something.
These “poor” people have been taught to ignore the simple animal nature of fending for oneself.
