"ciuridaphobia – (n) -- the fear of squirrels, enveloping both the fear of being overrun by squirrels and the compulsion to attack them."
Inform the Snark woman I'm taking that "attack them" comment personally. Me and all my furry, tree-dwelling brethren and sistren in Noo Yawk Sitty. She may have noticed that almost anywhere you go where there's trees, you can see squirrels... or more importantly, they can see you!
We'll be seeing you, Miss Snark. Oh yes, yes we will.
