all-black squirrel in Chicago area

On Saturday, I spotted an all-black squirrel across the street from my home in Elmhurst, Illinois.I managed to take the photo above during my shock and awe. A little research reveals black squirrels are not that uncommon. This is the first one I have seen in the Chicagoland area.

I bet Steve Jobs has an entire family of all-black squirrels inhabiting his property.

With glowing eyes!
And I think you’re right about Mr Jobs – I can see how these guys could have inspired the iPhone.

“iPhone 4 Double 2: now with fur!”

Steve Jobs buys ninja stars from Japan for his black ninja squirrels. That’s how he’s able to keep so many Apple product releases secure. Ninja squirrels with Japanese-imported ninja stars.

They aren’t doing a great job then. With these “leaked” and “stolen” iPhones that show up before they’re released.

Perhaps the ninja squirrels are double agents.

The squirrels very well could be double agents, they are after all, very squirrely

I remember seeing the black squirrels more in the south then up here so that is an interesting find as we don’t see many of them. Maybe Steve Jobs catches them all to go to his house in Washington?

The I-phone might have been left at a bar on purpose. Look at all the free publicity on it. I remember reading articles with the same speculation. Considering all the security Apple has, I don’t believe it is still an OOOPPs.

Knowing Steve Jobs, he’s a man of extremes. He has an idea and he completely runs with that idea. No veering off. He’s huge on security and keeping things secret and control. I would highly doubt that he’s scheming about planting an iphone to get more press coverage. Jobs knows he doesn’t need to do such things. His black ninja squirrels attest to his top-notch security. Who else employs ninja squirrels with ninja stars?

Google is powered by pigeons.

I like to think that Google’s pigeons wear berets like the Chinese pigeons.

google only uses the pigeons for their search technology.

If google uses pigeons for search technology, then what would the logic follow that they would use for their security… Eagles? Hawks?

Griffons? Do you think Google is involved in spiritual warfare? I hope not.

Next thing you know you’ll be able to check Facebook from your phone.

moose: i did hear such nonsense.
with facebook’s track record with privacy, i’d stay as far away from such a device as possible.

also, i can’t really imagine what they’d bring to the table.
