Today's "A for effort" story comes courtesy of a determined lil' ferret.

This critter desperately wants to jump from a table to a windowsill.

He's laying out the angles. He's working up the courage. He's thinking about the adulation he'll receive. He's -- splat! Flat on the ground.

There is an upside here, though. The ferret really ought to think about a career in comedy because he shows a real flair for physical comedy.
