What do you get when a squirrel crosses a line fuse and touches both sides? A dead squirrel and a power outage at my place for a couple hours until the electric company could pop in a new fuse. It made a bang so loud, it had me diving for cover thinking someone was unloading a shotgun in my direction. My daughter enjoyed poking this guy with a stick and commenting on why he was so stiff. Since there probably wasn't enough time for rigor mortis to set in (how long for a squirrel anyway?) I'm guessing the electrical current did a number on the muscles because this guy was rock hard. Perhaps he was just cooked well done inside. Either way, he won't make that mistake again.
