To be honest I thought that made yordles quite unique. It struck me as a very creative, really.

When I get out my LoL box, on the back of the map it says Nunu found his yeti by jumping on his head and claiming him. It also says that Meglings are Yordles.

So it must be VERY old info that Meglings were once a different race.

^ Considering Nunu's gender has swapped back and forth several times throughout the course of the LoL lore, and male was not the first iteration... =p

This is actually not true. The developers have said several times that Meglings were always intended to be Yordles (yes, even before the line that was added to Tristana's story), and the reason that the lore was "changed" was because they realized that this wasn't as apparent as they thought it would be.

Will we ever see blue males and females of squirrel variety?

Extreme sexual dimorphism in animals right here on Earth isn't unheard of. Angler fish for example.

Heh...

Tristana's lore says that the first Megling commando was a male, yes? So there are two thinks I would like to know:
Would a blue yordle with more human features be considered a mutation? (as opposed to a orange/yellow/golden yordle with more dog/cat/squirrel-like features.) Or, perhaps it's the other way around?
Secondly, why have we not seen any male blue yordles yet? O.o
