Edmonton 5:03PM CST – THE INFLUENCIER has learned that Sir Rudiger Esquirel (e)SQRL has broken free from his bonds and escaped his evil captors at Empire Avenue HQ. CEO Dups said in response to the event,“Damn squirrel. He got free again.”
Moments later an official Empire Avenue Spokesperson contacted THE INFLUENCIER directly via twitter to clarify the CEO’s remarks when asked about the incident:
“No comment. At this point our main concern is for the integrity of the site. If you see squirrels anywhere, please stop them.”
So an urgent call has apparently been put out through official Empire Avenue channels via twitter asking the Empire Avenue community to help capture the animal.
Rudiger Esquirel was overheard speaking to Claire McGonigal (e)CMCG decrying that “I’ve been caught before. I won’t let it happen again.”
Olivier Lussier, (e)OL programmer of a fantastic Empire Avenue WordPress Plugin, has shared with THE INFLUENCIER that he also encountered the squirrel on the lam, and that the squirrel was quite personable, although jittery. The encounter was however somewhat disconcerting to Olivier who said the squirrel departed with the following remark:
“It’s not often I encounter a human who understands the plight of the squirrel. Your empathy has earned you your life.”
More to come as events unfold.
