A fire at a US apartment block is thought to have been caused by a resident trying to cook a squirrel with a propane torch.

Never tried squirrel before. I suppose it tastes like chicken.

Squirrel is actually pretty good if its a young one.  The problem is you have to kill and clean it yourself plus cook it without burning down the house.

I had squirrel years ago and it was quite tasty too.
However one would have to be a really special sort of stupid to use a blow torch on a squirrel and on the INSIDE of a building too.

I can imagine the fire department never quite heard of a fire being caused by a flaming squirrel before.

It is not that I necessarily dislike people or that I don't "play well" with others but rather I do better and prefer playing alone.
