How to Survive a Weasel Attack:

• First, find and provoke a weasel. The easiest way to find a weasel is MySpace. The easiest way to provoke a weasel is a misleading profile pic.

• Confirm that you are being attacked by a weasel and not a wolverine. The easiest way to tell the difference is that weasels often have Biblical first names, such as "Lazarus" or "Zerahiah," whereas wolverines often bite out your voice box to stop you from screaming.

• Do NOT insult the weasel's mother. While this is an arguably effective tactic for gaining the upper hand, it's not cool, dude. Not cool.

• Tell the weasel you will punch it with your right fist, but instead punch it with your left — weasels always fall for that one.

• Posit to the weasel that Riemannian manifolds might better be expressed in terms of Lagrangian — rather than Hamiltonian — mechanics. While the weasel is busy formulating a response, kick it in the balls. (All weasels have balls/are hermaphrodites.)

• While the weasel is incapacitated, plunge the Spear of Longinus directly into its heart, for that is the only known way to banish a weasel. (Did I not mention you needed to have researched, found, and unearthed the Spear of Longinus? Oh well, pretend I said that first.)

• Savor your victory; it will be short-lived once the weasel mafia learns of your malfeasance. Be warned: their influence is potent and far-reaching.
