Tipsy Squirrels Stumble Home After Too Many Fermented Fruits

Maybe you remember the bizarre, M-rated video game Conker’s Bad Fur Day on the Nintendo 64 back in the day. It followed the exploits of a heavy-drinking squirrel (the early 00’s were a weird time). But you probably never thought you’d encounter Conker in real life. Well, you were wrong.

Certain things in nature will ferment if left rotting in the sun too long. At the tail end of fall, when people have chucked away their pumpkins after carving them or apples have fallen from their trees, these fermented fruits turn into local watering holes for critters looking to catch a buzz.

The results: drunk squirrels. These videos show the tipsy creatures attempting to scale a tree, thinking “I can make that jump,” and trying to stumble home after a few too many. The lesson to be learned here is obvious. All three of these benighted critters are by themselves. When your friends go home, it’s probably time to call it a night.
