A very um... plump rat got caught in a sewer drain in Germany today and the photos are just hilarious. We're not kidding. The photos are this weird combination of relatable and sad but also very funny. Like that time I was so drunk, I got my hand caught in a peanut butter jar and decided to just go to bed and deal with it in the morning. It gave future me a real treat to look forward to that night.
Anyway, back to the rat! The rat was first discovered by an adorable girl who called a local animal rescue, which is just maybe the cutest thing I've ever heard. See for yourself how gosh darn sweet both this funny little rat and the girls who saved it are. Maybe one day the world will live in harmony so that all rats can be treated with the kind of respect they deserve.
You've heard of pizza rat.
And you've heard of selfie rat...
Well, there's a new rat in town.And its name is... well, it doesn't really have a name yet.
Storm drain rat? Manhole cover rat?
Let me tell you the details and maybe you can come up with a name yourself.
But their little bum got stuck trying to squeeze out.
Animal control was eventually called.
So they called firefighters in as well.
Look at his little feet!
Finally, the rat was freed.
Warning: this video contains some sad rat squeaks just before the happy ending.
The rat was first discovered by this young girl.
It's the little rat surrounded by hearts and the word "danke" which means thank you in German.
Twitter is alive with the jokes, as always.

It's like you just can't win.Whether you're working out or squeezing into a pair of jeans, it's all pain all of the time.
At least we're relatable.
