That's what police were asking John Jacobson after he allegedly tried to steal a whole pack of beer from a truck as it was being loaded into a store!
But that's not the bizarre part of the story. Not even close!
This is some serious crazy science awesomeness!!
Researchers have grafted human brain cells into the brains of mice!
They then tested learning and memory in the mice.
What'd they find?
A tiny baby mouse deer was born at the Berlin Zoo on Valentines Day!
No. We're not kidding!
These super shy animals can fit into the palm of a adult human's hand, and are one of the smallest hoofed mammals in the world!
Even those these rare animals offer no food whatsoever - they are hunted in its native home in Southeast Asia.
But during its care in the zoo - the mouse deer should live a life of 10-12 years.
Which is good for us and you!
Check out the pictures (below) !!!
Three blind mice…three blind mice…SEE how they run!
After receiving retinal implants, a group of mice now have the ability to see for the first time.

Scientists used an extremely fine needle to
Behold the power of cheese! OR should we say money?! LOLz!
This mouse is an independent woman and when she wants a snack, she doesn't want any handouts.
In fact, she's not afraid to spend a little cash to get what she wants!
The mouse empties her imaginary piggy bank to buy herself a treat and we know she's going to enjoy every bit of her new meal.
Watch (above) as this mouse understands the dog eat dog world of business.
Next, this mouse will try to do what she always does….
Try and take over the WORLD!!!!!! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!!
Unless you're a sponge, you and every multi-cellular animal on Earth have nerves…and many animals feel pain just like we do.
So when it comes to mice, rats, and rabbits grimacing in pain, we SHOULD be able to empathize as we feel pain too.
In studies comparing "grimace scales" for mice, rabbits, and horses, scientists are quickly discovering how to identify and alleviate pain.
Yayz!!! We bet a lot of you didn't even know animals could get the flu!
German scientists have discovered mRNA vaccines can help various species fight the flu.
Not just one vaccine….but multiple vaccines!
CurveVac as well as various German health boards have found that mRNA vaccines are immunogenic and combat viruses in mice, pigs and ferrets.
The mRNA vaccines help protect the body by producing antibody like reactions.
Good news for your animal friends folks!
