“The many uses of a Choice One pen.”
It’s been man versus chipmunk this past week in our Sidney office. Home for the summer, our favorite Spanish basketball star Ryan Bruns has been playing Wile E. Coyote to some chipmunks playing the parts of Roadrunner. In true Looney Tunes fashion, the feisty chipmunks, who have been tearing up our landscaping, have been taking the bait but not getting caught in the trap. Ryan has accused some of us of setting off the trap to tease him, but the likely suspects around here swear the chipmunks are doing the stealing.
Ryan has devised some alterations to his trap in hopes of preventing the chipmunks from stealing his sunflower seeds (and as Matt noticed, used Choice One pens to do so), but his modifications haven’t worked…yet. And while we feel Choice One pens are very useful (unless you don’t have anywhere to keep them), they are apparently not useful in the trapping of rodents.
We’re sorry about your frustration Ryan, but we’re so glad you volunteered to live-trap and safely release the varmints in the wild. There’s no question that the comic value of a frustrated professional basketball player being outmaneuvered by four-ounce chipmunks again and again provides more entertainment than Bugs Bunny and Michael Jordan in Space Jam. And in the end, we wonder which destruction is greater: the chipmunks’ moderate destruction of our landscaping or their severe destruction of Ryan’s ego.
