Date: November 18, 2005
Summary: Steve finds a hidden cache of diamonds, but the squirrel who owns them isn't so happy.
Number of panels: 8
Beaver and Steve are in the park, a squirrel is on a nearby tree, making NIK NIK sounds.
Steve: "Beaver, what is that weird rat thing doing?"
Beaver: "That's a squirrel Steve; it's gathering acorns so that it has food for the winter."
Beaver: "Now come on, let's go and play aviation pioneers while the wind is still up! I'll be ClÃ©ment Ader, you can be Chuhachi Ninomiya!"
Steve's stomach grumbles loudly: "GRBL GRBL"
Beaver: "To the skies!"
An inside view of the hole in the tree.
Steve peeks in.
Steve throws the acorns up with a "TOSS!", and swallows them with a "GLAAA!".
Squirrel: "What the... my acorns!"
Steve eats the acorns with a "MONCH!".
Steve: "Waf acornf?"
Steve: "Wait - there's something under these acorns... diamonds!"
Steve pushes away the acorns with a "SCOOP!", and reveals the diamonds, which "SPARKLE!".
Squirrel: "So you figured it out... very clever..."
Squirrel: "But I'm afraid that now you know too much..."
The gun makes an ominous "CLI-ICK!".
