The Pygmy Jerboa Is Like A Giant Weepul Come To Life

Ami Angelowicz / January 7, 2014

I’m not one for rodents, but I can get behind the pygmy jerboa, the world’s smallest mouse thingy. Why? Because it’s weird, it has a decent fluff-to-face ratio and if you replace its tail with an inspirational message, you’ve basically got a weepul come to life. If you don’t know what a weepul is, it’s a cotton ball with googley eyes that children in the ’80s sold cheese logs, sausage and wrapping paper to win every year. We worked so hard for those weepuls.
