So, you've got two options: You can go to the squirrel page on the National Geographic website, or you can enable this skill and hear Alexa read you squirrel facts inspired by the squirrel page on the National Geographic website.
This skill is clever and kind of funny if you dig hearing Alexa say the famous Bible quote from the film "Pulp Fiction", slightly different from the Samuel L. Jackson delivery. It's also something you only (and barely) need to hear once.

Even when this Alexa skill tells you an innocuous factoid, like the names of the president's wives, it can't help but going off-truth, repeating, for instance, the long-debunked claim that Donald's first wife, Ivana Trump, was once associated with the Czech Olympic ski team.
Dagnabbit! These darn websites and all their passwords demands! If only we had an Alexa skill that provides four random words, such as "radio," "tune," "log," "angle," and then, well, we don't know what.
Why would we remember those words if they don't mean anything to us? Plus, there are only four of them.
This skill is in on the joke, providing you with stream-of-conscious tech talk about the cloud, AI and more. The big joke will be when a couple of Silicon Valley types bag venture-capital investors with Alexa's meaningless mumbo jumbo.
Perhaps we're being too hasty. Perhaps in Grand Rapids, Michigan, there are more than two sides to every street. Perhaps you indeed need this skill to tell you which side to park on during the winter months because the answer, "This side -- or the other side," would be insufficient.
