I am NOT making this up as I go along. Check out this brief excerpt from the staid Jersey Journal:
Flaming squirrel ignites car in Bayonne

It's Rocky the Frying Squirrel!
A kamikaze squirrel fell from the sky and detonated a Bayonne woman's car yesterday, police said today. Further published details here:
Apparently, the radical, rapacious rodent was gnawing on high voltage electrical lines, and finally succeeded in tearing away enough insulation to create an electrical firestorm.
Having done this, he then brought the hot wire down onto the woman's automobile : creating a fire and explosion.
Department of Homeland Security officials issued a terse "no comment" when asked if there was any truth to reports the squirrel had made a "martyrdom video" prior to his despicable act, and an ever terser " Get the hell off my phone, you cretin !" , when asked if the squirrel had screamed " Al'lah akhbar !" during his final dive.
We have assigned our star reporter to this case, and hope to have answers soon.
Meanwhile, do not panic !
If you panic, the terrorists will have won.
