Fried Squirrel

Gradual Dazzle at "Anywhere But Here" has been posting about "skwerls". Reading one of the posts reminded me of a conversation I once had.

I work for the local power company. Whenever there's a power outage, it's the duty of the repair crew to determine the cause of the outage (wildlife, tree branches, lightning, underground cable failure, etc.) and then report it so we can take counter-measures to prevent that kind of outage from recurring.

So I once asked a lineman, "Do you ever have a case where you can't figure out what caused the outage?"

He fired back, "Oh sure. That's why you always carry a throw-down squirrel with you."

I don't work for the power company, but I think I could find some uses for those "throw-down squirrels" at work, anyway.
