Penn State Pizza Squirrel Trumps NYC Pizza Rat

photo-5The NYC pizza rat—you know, the rat who dragged a slice of pizza down a flight of subway steps last month and achieved instant fame—is still making headlines. Well, this morning on my walk to the office, I noticed this focused friend having his morning pizza outside the Hintz Family Alumni Center. (New Yorkers aren’t the only ones who brunch.) We don’t know much about Penn State Pizza Squirrel, but we do know that he deliberately chose to take a break from hoarding nuts for the upcoming winter to snack on this likely hours-old cold slice from—just a guess—Canyon Pizza. We won’t judge, Penn State Pizza Squirrel. You do you.

    PSU squirrels always aspired to more than just hoarding nuts. in the late 1960’s on my walk from campus to downtown, I always had a package of crackers with peanut butter for the sole purpose of feeding the squirrels I passed along the walkway. Squirrels won’t eat everything but they will check it out. A few years ago I saw a squirrel in my neighborhood going up a tree trunk with a piece of chocolate cupcake with green icing on it in his mouth. Have no idea if he ate it but he certainly was working to get it up the tree.
