One Weird Trick to Discover if You Have a Soul

“Come, children, unto Almighty Ra!”

Have you ever wondered, “Am I evil? Or perhaps dead? Could I be a listless, gossamer ghost floating in the same space for centuries, attached to nothing but what has long vanished from this earth?” Me too! #metooghost

I’m glad you have enough self-awareness to ask yourself if you’re soulless. I have good news–there’s a #lifehack for that!

Here’s a video of a couple who rescued a rat that fell down their chimney. Only it wasn’t a rat, it was a lil’ baby squirrel. So they tried to see if they could get the squirrell’s mother to find her and take her home. Watch this, then select which answer below best describes your response:


  1. Squirrels are just high-falutin’ vermin
  2. Is it a little dusty in here?
  3. I might cry from the poignancy of this mother-and-child reunion, but I really can’t cry at work, also thank Thor for something heartwarming in this shitty world, where’s my damn hanky.

Did you choose the third option, the Final Answer? Congratulations! Because that is the only answer! IF YOU HAVE A SOUL! The rest of you are evil dead ghosts.

Although, if you chose 1 as well as 3, that’s okay, because they are yucky rodents. But rodents WITH MOMS!


(I know it’s an Amway box.)

    Now I feel guilty for not wanting to hang out with my mom.

      To be fair, that squirrel mom doesn’t look like the hanging out type. She means business with that jaw-grip on her little one. So maybe it’s good to have a little distance. 🙂

    I’m really thinking that sqirrell-preacher should be my new avatar.

    Ha! Amway. The pyramid scheme that launched Betsy DeVos on the world. Also, very cute reunion. I’ll bet that kid cot an earful from mom when they got back to the nest.
