Could it be a reference to this? ‎ (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

I think it might be a reference to this: ‘Vampire squirrel’ caught on camera for the first time ever – Washington Post. -- 07:35, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

What about the old "Bananaphone" pun? (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

Sometimes I wonder if the joke is to make ExplainXKCD squirm. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

^ Not really. Those like me who used SquirrelMail had a laugh. Mostly every XKCD joke is incomprehensible to people not familiar with the subject of the joke. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

"a living squirrel being not an appropiate creature to mantain a phone call. "... well, duh. Everyone knows that a squid would make MUCH more sense! 05:16, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

I doubt this is supposed to be about SquirrelMail; it's much more likely to just be "Bananaphone" with a squirrel. 05:33, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
Maybe a _dead_ squirrel would work better. At least it wouldn't bite... Elektrizikekswerk (talk) 08:16, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

"chomp" is also a command on unixoid operating systems that removes characters which carry no information (leading, trailing white spaces, newlines etc) from strings. Seems like the squirrelphone removed every bit of non-information, essentially cutting the call to nothing. 07:10, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

Whoever put that [needs citation] in there deserves a medal XD Apbarratt (talk) 08:34, 16 September 2015 (UTC)
