Little Red Bear and I are getting more and more questions from readers. So here’s another one, hoping to provide useful and life-saving information by sharing for all.
Reader Question from K. C. in Shriveled Branches, California – “Dear Little Red Bear — What should I do if confronted by an angry weasel?”
Answer— Another great question, because this seems to come up more often than most folks think. The problem is, weasels are just not big on negotiating, so trying to reason with them or attempting to discover the source of their anger is largely a waste of time, as most just wake up angry in the morning right off the start, and their mood seems to follow on downhill from there.
We recommend telling the weasel a really funny joke, and hope it dies laughing. It seemed to work very well for the Roger Rabbit folks. If you’re not particularly funny, then we recommend running away as fast as you can, because the longer you stand in front of the weasel the hungrier it’s going to get while the time passes. If you have wings, use them. Because we haven’t found the weasel yet that can fly more than two laps around the feedlot.
Weasels are never easy to deal with, because even when they tell you they’re going to behave and be your friend, they most likely ain’t. So take whatever a weasel says with a grain of salt. Or two. Good luck with ’em, and we’ll keep y’all in our thoughts. — Little Red Bear
A big thanks to K.C. for the question! Remember folks, keep those questions and letters coming. We’ll get to them as best we can here for you. Happy reading, and thanks as always for stopping by! And remember folks, an angry weasel is considerably faster than a John Deere Tractor. Best to try and stay on their good side. If you can find one. – Jim (and Red!)
