Cable Not Working? Blame A Squirrel

I don't know about you guys, but I am always having issues with my cable signal. While I always assumed it was the old wiring in my home, it turns out it might be caused by squirrels who apparently love the taste of fiber optic goodness.

A recent study has shown that around 17% of all damage done to fiber optic cables is done by the adorable little brats. So next time you see a squirrel climbing up a telephone wire, maybe you should coax him down with a few peanuts before he munches away at your precious TV signal.
