The fact that Billy’s racial rubric includes the category of “squirrely” won’t get out of my head.
“What people don’t understand is that you can’t just ask, ‘How squirrelly is a German?’ Well, are we speaking of a Bavarian or a Prussian? Because the Bavarian has virtually–and this is rare–virtually no squirrel to him whatsoever; the Prussian, now the Prussian is a river people and therefore ranks with the Laotian or Congolese in terms of squirreliness. But tops? Hands down: Bolivians. They might as well bury nuts for the winter: those fuckers are at peak squirrel.”
