Shower Rat Is Out There Proving Rats Are Adorable

Considering the way we all lose our collective s**t when we see a rat in the wild, you’d think they’d be less adorable, right? Well, you’d be wrong, because you haven’t seen this little guy take a shower.

That’s some cute s**t right there. Look at how he scrubs himself! Who’s a good little carrier of the black death? You are, yes you are! It’s no wonder Hilary Duff has pet rats.

That video originated on Reddit, but it’s taken social media by storm.

Those were all funny. Some people decided to go the other way and make shower rat political. Those were also funny, but in a “We’re laughing at you because your joke is bad and you should feel bad” kind of way.

Yeah, those are things that happened.

So someone was going to ruin the fun, right? Surprise, surprise, it’s Gizmodo. You know, when they bought Gawker’s assets and verticals, I was hoping that they’d improve them, not let Gawker just drag their entire brand down into the gutter with them.

“The movements are pretty strange,” Tuomas Aivelo, researcher in Urban Rat biology at the University of Helsinki in Finland told Gizmodo. “A rat wouldn’t do that unless there’s something it really wants to get rid of. I think it’s soapy all over. That’s probably a problem for the rat. It just wants to get rid of the soap.”

Hey, Pixelated Boat was right, what a shock. Thanks for making the world a little less magical, Gizmodo, can you just go back to writing about how everyone who takes their coffee black is racist or whatever now?
