Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Fainting goats made a splash on the Internet a while back. This week, however, it's all about "Tippy the fainting squirrel."

Video footage posted to YouTube without explanation shows Tippy, a busy black squirrel, on a foraging expedition near a pile of leaves. But Tippy's perseverance is hindered by what's either a serious form of squirrel narcolepsy or acorn intoxication.

Over and over again Tippy searches for nuts, briefly falls over, then gets up again as if nothing has happened.
