“I got in trouble at a park for lining squirrels up by height. They didn’t like me critter sizing”

"Criticizing” shouldn’t be confused with “critter sizing,” but there are jokes. “I am just critter sizing!” was printed in the Lyons (KS) Daily News on November 13, 1917. “Critter sizing” puns have been printed on several images.

“Got in trouble at the zoo where I work for lining all the squirrels up in order of height… They don’t like me critter sizing” was posted on Twitter by sickipediabot by September 18, 2012. The joke probably originated on the Sickipedia website.

“Zoo” is sometimes replaced by “park” in the joke. “I got in trouble at the local park for lining all the squirrels up in order of height, they didn’t like me critter sizing” was posted on Twitter by Steve Clarke - Motivational Business Speaker on October 5, 2012. “I got thrown out of my local park after arranging the squirrels by height. They didn’t like me critter sizing” was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on January 20, 2020.

13 November 1917, Lyons (KS) Daily News, “Local News-Notes,” pg. 1, col. 1:
“If you are going to find fault with my cow, you can get off of my farm!” said one irate farmer to another. “I ain’t findin’ fault with the cow,” said the other, “I am just critter sizing!”

Maybe he was measuring small animals… oh, wait… that’d be critter sizing.

Hey Twitter, I was just thrown out of my local park and banned for the rest of 2020 for lining up squirrels by their height.
The park rangers didn’t appreciate the critter-sizing.
