I was in my car one day listening to a guy on the radio help callers with their home problems. One woman called up hysterical after finding a skunk in her basement.
“Leave a trail of breadcrumbs or cat food from your basement to your backyard,” suggested the show’s host. “That’ll get rid of it.”
An hour later the woman called back, even more upset, “Now I have TWO skunks in my basement!”
