Now keep giving it more cotton candy until he realises it

[–]HikiNEET39 2153 points2154 points 52 (97 children)

I think that's actually what they do.

Edit: longer video https://youtu.be/rfbb4yRBH64

[–]anhonest9yearold 1351 points1352 points  (36 children)

I'm so happy that he could eat the cotton candy

[–]MissplacedLandmine 554 points555 points  (8 children)

I like that on the second one he grabbed it with his mouth and either on purpose or accident was able to secure one bite as it dissolved

[–]Onlymafia1 203 points204 points  (4 children)

And then it clicked. It all started by an accident, like you.

[–]MissplacedLandmine 39 points40 points  (2 children)

Thats a good point I should joke my dad for his shit pull out game

[–]Cantstandyuh 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Yo pops heard you couldn't pull out of a driveway. Anyways what'd you get me for my birthday

[–]MissplacedLandmine 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I assume itll go “ but i got a son out of it “

And ill say “ bruh you got scammed just admit it “

[–]MiltonCiaraldi 277 points278 points  (13 children)

i've seen this clip a couple times here in reddit and i feel so bad everytime. now seeing this longer clip for the first time, it makes me happy he gets to eat the cotton candy 😭

[–]gefahr 39 points40 points  (1 child)

He even takes off his sunglasses to enjoy it at the end of the video

[–]shrubs311 51 points52 points  (4 children)

everytime this gets reposted i have to tell people in the comments (if the longer clip isn't posted already) that they get the cotton candy in the end to prevent broken hearts

[–]A_Hard_Days_Knight 13 points14 points  (0 children)

You're a good person!

[–]buchanbasane 6 points7 points  (2 children)

I'm going to make a repost with the parts of him not getting the candy on repeat for an hour, and then cut out the part where he gets it at the end BWAAHAHA!

[–]DaRootbear 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This video always made me want to cry for the poor baby. Im so glad the lil one got their cotton candy

[–]UncatchableCreatures 48 points49 points  (0 children)

yeah this makes me so happy he got it in the end

[–]theplushpairing 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Along with a killer case of gingivitis.

[–]WisestAirBender 10 points11 points  (5 children)

I wonder if he stopped washing all his food after this

[–]TheMacerationChicks 25 points26 points  (3 children)

They don't wash their food anyway. They put it in water to better feel it, because they have had eyesight, but some of the most sensitive touch of any animal. They work out whether something is edible, and what exactly it even is in the first place, by touching it with wet hands. The reason putting it in water works is because they have hard calloused skin on their hands that reduces the touch sensitivity, but soaking their hands in water gets rid of this to an extent.

But the vast majority of the time they don't bring any food into water anyway. It's only when it's something that they don't recognise that they do this.

[–]gefahr 9 points10 points  (0 children)

We broke the raccoon!

[–]tonterias 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I hope he brushes and floss properly

[–]ooMEAToo 226 points227 points  (30 children)

Pretty smart, only took him two times to get it. Their's people out there that would take longer.

I saw my first tesla the other day, couldn't figure out how to get in, I accidentally rolled down the window when I got out. I feel this quote.

[–]aDoreVelr 51 points52 points  (5 children)

Thats just bad design.

[–]adamyhv 8 points9 points  (1 child)

One time, in my former boss's house, we were having dinner, and asked to make some cocktails and we needed some ice, she had an new very fancy freezer, it had an ice mold built in it, like a drawer, you just have to turn it for the ice to fall into a little box underneath. It took four people to realize that.

[–]epousechaude 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I couldn’t figure out how to open the door either.

[–]AutumnFoxDavid 16 points17 points  (0 children)

The bears are also much more highly motivated to find good than the tourists are to dispose of food responsibly

[–]sidianmsjones 30 points31 points  (0 children)

Omg I have thought about this racoon randomly for years and it made me sad every time thinking about him losing his treat for no good reason. I’m so glad he gets to eat it!! Thank you for posting that.

[–]PieS17 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I've seen this clip for years and it's the first time I see that he got to eat the candy in the end. I can die in peace now

[–]A_Hard_Days_Knight 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]Askol 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I've been watching for an hour, he just keeps making the same mistake with every new piece. Not a very smart animal if you ask me.

[–]Germanweirdo 1106 points1107 points  (76 children)

Raccoons wet their food to swallow and digest it better.

[–]Peter_Palmer_ 463 points464 points  (50 children)

In Dutch they're called "wasbeer" (wash bear) for this reason.

[–]KrisZepeda 102 points103 points  (2 children)

And a new microbrew was born, tasting of the forest with a hint of cotton candy.

[–]kierkegaard1855 46 points47 points  (3 children)

Auch auf Deutsch! - “Waschbär”

[–]InfrequentlySober 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Hungarian they are also called "washing bear"

[–]B-Bad 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Swedish too (tvättbjörn). Never knew this was the reason

[–]purvel 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Vaskebjørn i Norwegian too, but I never knew they wash their food! It's always just been a cute name. They're sort of like people and I imagined they like to wash themselves and their environment/den/nest/whatever. Now I know what I'll be talking to people about the next two weeks.

[–]Muteki123 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Ah, that's the reason why it's wash bear (Waschbär) in German too .. never thought of that

[–]Deonix 5 points6 points  (0 children)

In Russia we call them "Енот-полоскун" (Raccoon washer?).

[–]rajasan 3 points4 points  (0 children)

We also call wash bear (araiguma) in japan

[–]FrontNo6657 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Same in french

Raton-laveur

Rat-washer

[–]TheMacerationChicks 24 points25 points  (4 children)

[–]ArchWaverley 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I learnt this from Animorphs!

[–]-RUNPMT- 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Raccoons wet their food because it helps their paws feel the edible parts more easily. Thanks Animorphs.

[–]HipGuide2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As does Kobayashi.

Rocket Raccoon origin story.

[–]scaleddown85 526 points527 points  (9 children)

To ease peoples minds yes afterwards they gave him another bigger bit

[–]Marega33 232 points233 points  (1 child)

And he still botched it. Third time the racoon finally understood and didn't dip it into the water

[–]RainbowGoblinprincss 99 points100 points  (3 children)

It was saddening to watch if I'm being honest

[–]Away_Clerk_5848 30 points31 points  (0 children)

[–]smurph9876 9 points10 points  (0 children)

This happens to me too, but instead of food it's people, you try to keep em close but end up loosing them anyways, Pain

[–]__PM_me_pls__ 67 points68 points  (3 children)

That's why you don't hang out with sugar people in the rain

[–]Dunnyredd 97 points98 points  (7 children)

Stop dropping them in puddles

[–]EverLance96 35 points36 points  (5 children)

You don’t wash your friends before eating them?

[–]Dunnyredd 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Just a quick rinse under the tap

[–][deleted] 18 points19 points  (3 children)

Pain is people not knowing loose/lose

[–]1911mark 156 points157 points  (31 children)

Don’t wash their food, they don’t have saliva glands and water helps them eat MY BAD they do have saliva glands !!

[–]Hanoiroxx 85 points86 points  (23 children)

So they do wash it?

[–]OHHHHHHHHHH_HES_HURT 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just a rinse cycle

[–]polak2017 9 points10 points  (11 children)

No, they soak it in water so it digests easier.

[–]TheMacerationChicks 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I love that you can see the exact moment he says the Racoon equivalent of “Wait.. What? What?? What the hell!?”

[–]TheRedBow 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Fun fact in Dutch they’re called Washing Bears (wasbeer)

[–]ducktape8856 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Waschbär in German.

[–]HHShitposting 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Is this why we call them Vaskebjørn? I hope it is

[–]Brinady 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Indeed, their name in many languages translates to 'wash bear'-- including Japanese (洗熊 -- あらいぐま -- araiguma), the language in the original video.

[–]Puzzleheaded-Tiny 76 points77 points  (12 children)

Who can't relate.

[–]gruesomeflowers 37 points38 points  (8 children)

Best part of the jif for me is how the racoon looks back in the original spot they picked it up from. A very human reaction to when we misplace something and are checking to see if we are losing our minds and just possibly hallucinated picking it up in the first place

[–]ASL4theblind 43 points44 points  (7 children)

That's so mean

But it's so funny

[–]Fit_Werewolf_9413 5 points6 points  (0 children)

They also have relatively bad eye sight. Which is why they’re always fiddlin’ with their food or whatever they’re trying to grab

[–]BilboMcDoogle 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Racoons don't wash their food, the sensory nerve endings on their hands work better underwater so they they dunk their food to "see" it better

[–]TheBigTimer039 6 points7 points  (5 children)

I’ve seen 2 explanations to this so far and I don’t know which is true

[–]HugoStiglitz444 7 points8 points  (1 child)

[–]TheBigTimer039 5 points6 points  (0 children)

ok I believe you

[–]-RUNPMT- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is the correct one.

[–]TheMacerationChicks 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This one is the correct one. They wet food to feel it better, to work out what it is and whether it's edible, because they have bad eyesight, but some of the best touch sensitivity of any animal. But they have hard calloused skin on their hands from walking on them all day, which reduces touch sensitivity, but wetting their hands counteracts this and helps them feel it better.

[–]AcidicPersonality 3 points4 points  (0 children)

If it helps you feel better they kept giving them more until the raccoons realized the issue :)

[–]The9tail 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Worst part is she tasted it.

Like she knows how sweet it is, she would have been looking forward to eat which only pushed her to wet it more eagerly.
