There needs to be a comic book that has this guy versus human centipede.

Didn't really work for me - - the squirrels needed to either look more realistic or more comically exaggerated.

And, a friend of mine was reminded of this old Homestar Runner email, "Everyone Is Different."

The phrase used for "squirrel-hands" is "ruki-belki" which sounds hilarious. Listen for it, seriously.

It's not often a sentence like the one in this FPP gets typed and actually means exactly what it says.

The squirrels eat? Where do they poop?

Ugh.

It is terrible that you guys think this is CGI. This man deserves our compassion.

> Where do they poop?

Why do you think there's such a big gap between the radius and the ulna.

Those were real squirrels, and that took more lube than you can imagine.

Have you ever considered that your "compassion" might be objectifying him? This man and his squirrel hands deserve to live their own lives on their own terms!

I imagine masturbation would either be amazing or incredibly problematic. Can squirrels cooperate?

Given how hands work in his family, it would have been actually more disturbing if his father had been a human.

Considering their proximity to his nuts in that situation, I imagine that the squirrels cooperating would be the least of his problems.
