Pop Culture Frenzy, Round 19

Welcome once again to Pop Culture Frenzy.   Here's our question.

A bicycle belonging to an associate math professor at Iowa Lakes Community College was repeatedly vandalized.  Who did it?

A disgruntled colleague?
Hostmaster: incorrect.
A disgruntled student?
Hostmaster:  incorrect.
A spurned lover?
Hostmaster:  incorrect.
A squirrel?
Hostmaster:  Correct.  Some other professor came forward with a photo of the squirrel "attacking" the bike tires.
Another professor "came forward" with a photo? 
Sounds fishy.  I think Fluffy and I got it right.
  It was a disgruntled person.
The squirrel was hired to vandalize the bike,
 then was thrown under the bus, so to speak. 

Yeah!  But I still think it was a spurned lover!
  We all know who ugly failed relationships can get!

On the other hand, photos can be doctored.
  Perhaps the photo implicating the squirrel is a cover-up
for something even more nefarious.
Could be the real culprit was a
 former student/colleague/lover of the math professor,
further embittered because this associate
 animal behaviorist professor's
 life work has been foiled by uncooperative animals.
Darn elegant solution employing a squirrel for the hit!

Haha!  I can sort of relate to wanting
 revenge against uncooperative animals!

Is that a dig?
Perhaps it was a random attack.
This math professor guy was simply unlucky.

Or maybe the math professor is a dork and
 nobody likes him.  People can be cruel.
Maybe he was the only dork who rides his
bike to school.

It's probably a "hate" crime.
  Lots of people hate math!

Was the squirrel allowed to make a statement
 or did they convict solely on a photograph? 
The squirrel does not appear to have been
 given an opportunity to offer his side of the story.
 Meanwhile the math professor now
 parks his bicycle inside the building.

  1. I can testify that squirrels are devious little rascals, so nothing they do surprises me!

  2. Haha, what an interesting exchange and all about the suspected involvement of a squirrel in an act of vandalism. But yeah, squirrels are cute, but they can be sneaky too. Could be any of the above scenarios really.
