Finally, the age old question of, “if you give a mouse a cookie…” has been answered. After hundreds, if not thousands of years, we have video proof of the result of the mouse/cookie theses that have split the scientific community for decades.

I, for one, always thought those books were full of shit and I am happy to say that finally my suspicions have been confirmed.

This video is from, where else, Russia, where there seems to be more video cameras than people so apparently they’ve decided to use all of those extra dash cams they have lying around to play tricks on mice by leaving giant cookies around and videotaping them trying to escape with them.

It is fun to try and get inside the mind of the this little mouse though while he’s trying to get away with that giant ass cookie. The best part of the video is near the end when he jumps back up on top without the cookie just to convince himself he could actually still do it.
