Strange things happening in Chicago.

A Chicago Alderman, Howard Brookins Jr., had been complaining on the floor of the City Counsil how squirrels are responsible for big money damages to Chicago trash cans because they chew away at the lids to get inside.

Then this happens a few weeks later:

Mr. Brookins was bicycling down a path when a squirrel got caught in the spokes of a wheel causing the bike to fall and Brookins got a severe head injury as a result !!!

My God these squirrels must have communicated somehow and set him up !!!


Squirrel hospitalizes Chicago politician who spoke out against squirrels

Howard Brookins Jr., the alderman for Chicago’s 21st ward, had publicly spoken out about a toothy menace plaguing the city’s garbage carts: urban squirrels, which in Brookins’s view were “aggressive,” and aggressively damaging the trash cart lids.

He now has another reason to dislike the rodents. One recently sent him to the hospital with a skull fracture in a “freak bicycle accident,” as the alderman wrote on Facebook.

Brookins was biking along Cal-Sag Trail on Nov. 13, when a squirrel darted into his path. The squirrel cut Brookins’s bike trip short by wrapping itself in the spokes of the alderman’s bicycle. The alderman flipped over the handlebars and landed with such a severe impact that he fractured his skull, broke his nose and knocked out a handful of teeth, the Chicago Tribune reported. A woman who passed by called 911. Brookins was only able to leave the hospital Thursday.

I always thought it would be a robot uprising ... but a rodent uprising is just as ominous.

There is no such thing as coincidence.

Karma on the other hand.

I'll bet my lunch that he had a chance to avoid the squirrel, and hit it on his bike on purpose.

Karma, bitch!

And so it begins, the Great Squirrel War of 2017

Just remember they drew first blood with this assassination attempt, show no mercy, for they will show none.

Hide your nuts men, it's what they go for first.

It's gonna be a long winter.

Never.

The Simpsons have already predicted our future overlords will be Dolphins, and we all know The Simpsons predictions actually happen.

Squirrels are the only CONFIRMED secret society that I know.

They plot, scheme and control the true levers of power.

Really.

I keep my distance.

Squirrels rock, and are considered one of the top ten smartest animals depends on what list. You really think all they are burying in your yard are nuts. The only fault I see is they seem to have a problem crossing the street.

Another squirrel makes the headlines.

This poor little guy lost everything. It was such devastating news, that it even made the front page of our paper.

Squirrel loses everything, in the blink of an eye
