The internet has turned a photo of a squirrel into the heroic meme we need and deserve


Someone posted a photo of a squirrel making a superhero pose. Naturally, the internet went nuts – pun definitely intended.

Reddit users have earned quite a reputation for themselves as hilarious photoshoppers, so when Redditor FlamingoShame brought a photo of a squirrel somehow making the iconic superhero-crouch-pose to the proverbial table, fellow users SHOWED UP to make epic photoshopped versions.

The photoshopped images range from exceptionally well-done to comically bad.

Some show the small furry friend wreaking havoc on cityscapes like Chicago or New York City, while others show him (or her!) delivering knockout punches to supervillains (or wrestling competitors).

Others depict the brawny rodent with more humble pastimes, like mowing the lawn, cleaning up a classroom, catching a wave, or playing pool.

No matter how this super squirrel decides to spend his/her time, we love this meme for reminding us that you don’t have to be big to be strong and mighty.
