Weekend Menaces

Baboons are like the speed freak biker out of a little old ladies worst nightmare. Super humanly fast, aggressive, and strong. And running amok in South Africa. There was a time when big game hunters were pretty common in that neck of the woods.

Geographically closer to home, folks in Chicago are besieged by super raccoons. On the one hand, I feel left out that I never get besieged by super animals and would like to go with the time honored "what caliber for super raccoon?" On the other hand, Chicagoans are obviously stupid.

Edited to acknowledge that not all Yankees are stupid


  1. The super raccoons wouldn't be a problem if fur prices were higher. I guess raccoon coats need to come back into fashion.

    As far as what caliber for super raccoon? I know from experience that a .22 short in the ear does just fine.

    Only the city Yankees are stupid.

  2. "On the other hand, Chicagoans are obviously stupid."
    That's better and I can think of one particularly stupid one.

  3. Chicago needs an appetite for raccoon just as they have in Detroit. You know, don't you, about the fella making a living trapping and selling raccoons INSIDE the city of Detroit?

  4. "Chicagoans"? I thought the word was "Chicagorillas"! Silly me and H. L. Menken.
