An excitement of squirrels. Or an excited squirrel. Whatever.
So I was looking for an image of a squirrel to use for a post on how an excitement of squirrels (and yes I’m linking to myself) was really taking off as a thing people said. All be it, the people in question were me and my husband, but I don’t get out much, and anyway, when was the last time you came up with a group name for an animal group? Thought so. So having an additional person pick it up is huge. Especially since he doesn’t read my blog. Unless I hand him the laptop and say read this. Which I might have totally done with the an excitement of squirrels thing. But whatever.
Anyway, there I was innocently looking for a nice black and white image (because that makes it arty, right?) when I came across this:
Apparently this full frontal squirrel was an ambience shot in a show about a British bake-off. Which has caused outrage (and amusement) over the inclusion of the shot on a lovely, family friendly baking show. Apparently it is all over U tube. And there I was momentarily feeling like I had found some secret squirrel porn.
But I include this as an example of a different meaning of an excitement of squirrels. Not that he looks that excited. But the people who saw his definitely had reactions…
