When eating trumps breathing

My excuse for linking to HuffPo UK: I found the video on another site and, looking for information about it, found a description on the Regressive Rag:

A man named Joel Rosenthal discovered a family of raccoons living under his house, so he did the logical thing and made them internet stars.

His first genius step was to give them a bowl of cereal, which they didn’t really understand. Rather than skimming the yummy cereal off the top of the milk, they just plunged their faces in.

The entire ordeal was really cute, but the funniest part of the video is easily Joel’s commentary.

      Yes, that face. That’s one of the funniest things I’ve seen.

    Okay, did anybody else stumble over the post title a couple or three times thinking that the “trumps” was about Donald Trump, and trying to make sense of it?

      No, raccoons are far more intelligent.

        So true!
        I’d rather have a raccoon in the Oval Office.

    Didn’t B.F. Skinner’s acolytes discover that, for a certain portion of the white rat population, pushing the lever in a Skinner box to get a hit of yayo trumps breathing, eating, sex, and anything else you can think of?

    Kinda makes one wonder what the raccoons’ milk might be spiked with …

    We don’t have Raccoons over here in GB ,i love them .
    Anyone seen the video of one trying to eat candy floss?.
    First two times he tries to wash the big lump of candy floss and it just dissolves in the water ,the third time he just eats it .
    I know you Americans call it cotton candy ,is salt water taffy made with salt?.
    PS i think it was here where i first saw the Raccoon with the candy floss .

    They’re fishing! They instinctively go below liquid level looking for fish to eat, not understanding the concept of milk, much less that of the cereal floating in it. Cute!
