EXPOSED!!! TUFTY the traffic safety squirrel 'Patriots, would you trust a skwerl to teach children the fundamentals of safety at home and on the road? Of course not!' Read the execrable Tufty Fluffytail song sheet music! Weigh in on the enigma that is the Shroud of Tufty! Watch insidious squirrel propaganda!

Very cute. Heavily influenced by Beatrix Potter, I think.

However the idea of a road safety squirrel seems bizarre. What next, "Chester the Healthy Diet Pig", "Veronica the Quietness Crow", and "Alfonse the Sports Snail"?

Goodness me! I'd forgotten all about Tufty. Although I do always 'look right, look left, look right again, if all clear quick march', except I do the left bit first because I live in Australia now. Thanks owhydididoit.

If we are to have any chance at throwing off the oppressors, we're going to need practice.

This is reminding me of Patch the Pony, the little horse who champions exploited children. "Niegh neigh, from strangers, stay away!" (Oh dear lord, Patch, dare I ask how you lost that eye? Maybe I don't really need to know....)

Tufty's Propaganda Video is a wonderful thing. That car really sends him flying! I'm certainly taking my mummy with me next time I go to the ice cream truck

you get ten points for shooting a squirel in the groin? That's sick.

But what's really weird are those three 10-pointers that miss the squirrel entirely. What's up with that? And no points listed for nailing it right in the brain?

Everyone knows that if you shoot a squirrel in the brain, the 'nads keep living to fight another day. They shoulda made it 15 points.

Thanks for this hilarious post. I want a peanut!
