Who says Halloween is exclusive for humans?

Not this critter.


Twitter user Todd Spence made sure to include all walks of life to participate in trick-or-treating this year by rigging a squirrel feeder in disguise, inspired by the movie, Scream.



In the video, a squirrel sniffs out the sweet nectar lodged inside a Scream mask. The woodland creature approaches the odd ornament dangling in front of the window and succumbs to the sweet aroma by poking his head inside the cumbersome black cloth.

It had goals, but in our eyes, it just wanted to get in on the fun of Halloween.

Little does he know that the joke is on him. Trick or treat!

People thought the video of the cute critter becoming one with creepy mask was hysterical.









One user had a legitimate inquiry, though.




The ghoulish mask that first appeared in the slasher flick Scream (1996) terrified moviegoers everywhere.

After audiences were shell-shocked by the murderer's disguise in Scream, it was time for Hollywood to undermine the mask's spook factor through mockery.

The mask was later refashioned and utilized in the comedy, Scary Movie (2000), a parody Scream.

Thanks to the cute critter, we now have another reason not to spooked by the spectral mask.

Animals in scary masks will never get old. Others shared their photos.



It looks like terror has a new face, and it's oh so cute.

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
