Water Skiing Squirrel Ignores Long-Standing Law, Performs for Adoring Public Anyway

On top of being adorable and amazing, Twiggy the water skiing squirrel has little regard for your local laws.

The Vancouver International Boat Show has brought in Twiggy to charm the masses at this year’s show. However, an 1978 law prohibits, “rodentia,” from “in a competition, exhibition, performance, event, or other situation.” Well, how the hell are we supposed to enjoy a boat show now?

The issue gets even more confusing when you consider which animals are allowed to water ski to their heart’s content. The Vancouver Sun notes that it is legal to force domestic hamsters, guinea pigs, chinchillas, rats, mice, degus, and gerbils into aquatic servitude, but not squirrels. Seems a bit unfair. We’re not sure which animal it’s not fair to, (do squirrels long to water ski, do chinchillas suffer from aqua-phobia?) but it is unfair to someone.

What does Twiggy think about all of this? Twiggy DGAF, as she will perform twice a day all this week and seven times this coming weekend. The law says each offense will be punishable by fines ranging from $500 to $10,000. No word on whether Twiggy will be written up.

Fish gotta swim, birds gotta fly, squirrels gotta water ski.
