Some gems from recent emails

I'd like to congratulate myself for having some of the greatest friends in the world.

Per esempio, some email volleys that began with my satirizing a saccharine email from a colleague about a history department apple-picking outing (my version was whoremongering in Chinatown. now, reattach the jaw to the face, Mom, it's a joke). prompted:

FROM friend NELLIE:
Since we're sharing, this today from my favorite british rag, the
Sun.
SQUIRRELS are getting hooked on crack cocaine ? hidden
by addicts in gardens.They are digging up the stashes
and eating the mega-addictive drug, which comes in
small chunks.
Crack squirrels are a recognised problem in America.
They are common in parks used by addicts in New York
and Washington DC.
They have been known to attack park visitors in their
search for a fix.

TO which THERESA replies:
oh, the crack squirrels. i can relate. we have a meth rooster in the
basement of our building, a couple of chicken whores, and
occassionally, we get visits from a methadone racoon on the fire
escape....

ALL of WHICH RESULT in MY NEW COINAGE:
Nellie arrives later today to bring our household up to five occupants. From my usual one. I'm so excited I'm jittering like a crack-addicted squirrel.

I'll happily take credit if anyone wants to formally record the etymology of this phrase.
