We used to go “squirrel fishing” in college because we had so many fat, lazy squirrels on campus. You take a fishing rod with a small sinker on the line (no hook!) and tie a piece of cardboard to the end of the line covered in peanut butter. You cast it into the quad or courtyard, and get the squirrels to chase it. The point was to see how close the squirrels would get to you for the peanut butter. Eventually, you ended up with squirrels in your lap.
