A couple from Jersey Shore, Penn. (not that Jersey Shore), trapped a purple squirrel who was getting into their bird feeders. This is obviously awesome, but we felt you might have some questions.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT A PURPLE SQUIRREL:
Q: OMG can I keep it please please please?
A: You’d have to find it first, because it’s already been released into the Jersey Shore wilds, so at this point it’s probably dark orange instead of purple anyway (just kidding) (not that Jersey Shore).
Q: Okay but why is it purple though?
A: Dunno. Nobody seems to know. Possibly it fell in a Port-a-Potty?
Q: What shade of hair dye would you guess this squirrel uses?
A: Special Effects Wildflower.
Q: Does it have a Twitter?
