Only in New York would a squirrel be so used to take-out that he clearly knows his way around an egg roll.
Twitter user WhatIsNY captured the self-possessed rodent daintily snacking on his treat in a tree and posted the video online. The squirrel instantly became a viral hit, complete with his own hashtag: #EggRollSquirrel.
Fans with growling stomachs thought he definitely was on to something:
Uber Eats finally got the location right. It’s tough texting without thumbs.

The squirrel hid the Styrofoam container with his pork fried rice on the other side of the tree so he wouldn’t get a sanitation ticket or scolded by a progressive mayor.
