RACCOONS IN THE NEWS: Well, at least they’re not furries.

A viral video has sprung up that shows … well, it’s short, so you may as well just give it a watch.

Seen it?  What I think is funny is that the raccoons are not … in the process of … y’know … when they’re shown. Rather, they seem rather surprised in a “what’s this guy lookin’ at” kind of way.  He shoulda’ yelled out “get a room, you two!” 

I thought raccoons were nocturnal?

For some reason, the popularity of this video caused a writer at Wired to lament: “… viral videos are a tradition almost as old as the internet itself – but maybe it’s time to raise the bar a bit?”

Hey, when it’s a raccoon in the spotlight I consider the bar to have been raised
