The best of all possible worlds

I stand corrected. Dr. Pangloss was right. Because we live in a world where THAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED! We live in a world where A WEASEL TOOK A RIDE ON A FLYING WOODPECKER'S BACK. I don't even want to know the real story. I'm just happy to know that it happened on my planet.

I doubt you'll feel so awe-inspired when said weasels are dropping incendiaries on your house via their aerial alliance.

I always thought weasels and peckerwoods hung out together, BUT NOW WE HAVE PROOF.

Clearly it was an african woodpecker.

My father fought a weasel. It was trying to pull a mousetrap with a mouse in it below the house, where it would have smelled really bad for a long time. Surprisingly strong and stubborn little creature, I hear. Father won, but it took some time.

Here's the lil' bastard

Clearly everyone is missing the neocon point here... the woodpecker jihad has it's young birds strapping on weasel vests and flying into coveys of peaceful (tasty) quail...

thing like this could spread to our chicken coops if we don't spend lots of money on technology & weapons to stop it now.

This is obviously a furry mammalian woodpecker traveling with his new squeeze. You're all just as bad as the other cis-weasels.

What an interesting concept a weasel and woodpecker.

MK, what a ticked off little faced creature! Too funny. Whoa saw 2nd pic, what a jerk of an animal, didnt it have anything else to eat like greens?

That animal is raciss against vegetation/greens!

whenever I was having a down day I'd ask to see something in nature to cheer myself. One day above highway 51 towards pineville nc was a squirrel walking far above our cars crossing the wires making it to the other side of the road. that was faith inspiring.

“All government, in its essence, is a conspiracy against the superior man: its one permanent object is to oppress him and cripple him. If it be aristocratic in organization, then it seeks to protect the man who is superior only in law against the man who is superior in fact; if it be democratic, then it seeks to protect the man who is inferior in every way against both. One of its primary functions is to regiment men by force, to make them as much alike as possible and as dependent upon one another as possible, to search out and combat originality among them. All it can see in an original idea is potential change, and hence an invasion of its prerogatives. The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are.” --- H.L. Mencken

Today I watched a crow pick up a snail shell, fly about 20 meters in the air, and drop the shell onto a hard-surfaced road. The crow then came down to check on his handiwork, to see if he needed to drop it again before having a tasty snail snack.
But that's nowhere as cool as a Weasel riding a Woodpecker.

Anonymous Cryan Ryan March 03, 2015 4:38 PM  

There once was a weasel named Pete,
Who sometimes found life incomplete,
Woody booked him a flight,
And though Pete hung on real tight,
He would fall nearly two thousand feet.

But does the weasel know air power wil never hold ground. You need paws on the ground for that.

Blogger ajw308 March 04, 2015 1:36 AM  

It's an obvious Wild Weasel flight, but what anti-air defenses could they hope to suppres? What's the second element of the mission? What could their ground target possibly be? This intel raises more questions that it answers.
