Sheesh.
Why am I laughing? This is some serious shit, it could have some practical long-term ramifications influencing/relating to human sexual activity, i.e., the introduction of postplay to avoid infection. Does this mean I get to watch after?:)

With that face you're gonna need some super sweet nut lures for even the most unihibited squirrel slut to give you a lapdance. What you gonna do with six tatas anyway? Let me guess, you're hoping for the mother of all gnarly consuelos?

I'll make that trollop squeak. That's what she gets for masturbating in front of the research crew.

The article said that the boys "groomed" their penises after gangbanging the girl squirrel. You posted it, you shoulda read it; admit it, you went all twitchy over the word masterbate. How old are you?

This new learning amazes me, Sir Noodly. Explain again how sheep's bladders may be employed to prevent earthquakes.

Since when was it decided that squirrels were allowed as substitution for swallows?

No no no, it was not substitution, the swallows had been turned into squirrels by a witch practising to turn credulous villagers into newts.
