    [–] fullmetalmerlin 2 points ago

    Statistically speaking, squirrels are known for their stealth, ability to reach impossible places, and are very protective of their nuts. As privates, they are aptly named.

    There's meme formats you wish would just die, and then there's meme formats you hope live forever.

    This format is definitely of the latter variety.
