What to Know
- A squirrel was caught on video scampering around a Little Caesars Pizza in New Jersey Friday morning
- The rodent is seen racing under a row of chairs, darting toward the front counter as if to order, then making a beeline toward the bathroom
- Earlier this month, another squirrel, raided a New Jersey family's Ghirardelli and Blistex stash -- we hope it's not the same culprit
Sometimes you just want a cheesy slice. Even if you're a squirrel.
A rogue squirrel was captured on video running amok in a Little Caesars Pizza in New Jersey Friday morning, racing under a row of chairs, darting toward the front counter as if to order and then making a sharp right turn, possibly to the bathroom, as curious staff and customers look on.
"Oh my goodness, I'm dying," one woman said, alternately shrieking and laughing as the rodent ran past her.

An initial call about the squirrel inside Little Caesars on Broadway in Paterson came in shortly before 10 a.m. Friday. That call also reported a possible burglar alarm activation. Whoops.
It's not clear how long the squirrel was loose in the eatery. A spokeswoman for Little Caesars said in a statement to News 4, "We're diligently working to determine if the squirrel came out of a Christmas tree making a funny squeaky sound."
She couldn't resist adding: "One thing is certain, even wildlife wants some of our ExtraMostBestest pizza."
For what it's worth, it doesn't appear the squirrel stole anything, unlike that thieving, obese beast that raided a family's Ghirardelli stash a week or so ago.
