Smart Squirrel!

Via the blog of the awesome Neil Gaiman comes the story of a squirrel after my own heart:

A Finnish squirrel with a sweet tooth heads to a Finnish grocery shop at least twice a day to steal "Kinder Surprise" chocolate-shelled eggs.

Oh, Kindereggs! If only I could get you here, Kindereggs! The toys in these things are wonderful; I've got a paprazzi penguin and I used to have a many-jointed wooden mouse. As Gaiman points out, the strangest thing about this story is that the squirrel doesn't just nab the chocolate; he takes the toys too. What are the Finnish squirrels up to?
