PORT HURON, Mich., May 30 (UPI) -- The superintendent of a cemetery in Port Huron, Mich., says a squirrel is responsible for the theft of nearly a dozen small U.S. flags.

Mount Hope Cemetery superintendent Ron Ceglarek said he witnessed the squirrel take one of the small flags from a grave site and transport it up a nearby tree to help build a nest with its mate, the Port Huron (Mich.) Times Herald reported Saturday.

Yep, that's really going out on a limb.

If they're made of cotton squirrels use them for nesting. If they're polyester they'll leave them alone. At least that's what they said on TV a few years ago when someone kept having a yellow ribbon disappear off of their "old oak tree...."

Ya know, they're just patriotic squirrels, un-like some who squirreled away to Canada.

I should leaf this topic alone but I would like to take this opportunity to mention that John has a larch heart and he's rarely a pine in the butt. Oakay? Or am I barking up the wrong tree? Hmmm...Or is he a bit warped and does he belong to a naughty splinter group?
