So...does it have a serious nut habit, then?
No. Actually it -
- does it climb trees, look cute on Christmas cards, rob bird feeders?
Um. No, no, and no. Look, I don't think you're going to get this -
- don't tell me! Was it discovered by a Mr Squirrel?
Or did people squirrel them away, to eat in had times?
I really don't think -
Did a Mr Squirrel pay for the expedition that first found them?
Look, as a matter of fact -
- do they look like squirrels?
...taste like a squirrel?
Not as far as I know, no.
Oh all right, I give up, then.
All right, then. A squirrelfish is called a squirrelfish because it makes a noise like a squirrel.
It does what?
See? I knew you wouldn't get it.
