This groundhog knows how cute he is, and he’s using his cuteness to get free snacks. He probably uses the same trick with every office in the area. The people in the office think of him as the office’s friendly groundhog, but he’s just playing a trick on them to get free food. Isn’t that the definition of a free loader?
Perhaps they know he visits other offices in the area, and they still feed him, since he’s so cute. Only a cold-hearted person could say no to this face. Besides, it’s worth feeding him only to see his whiskers all covered in pink frosting. Perhaps they are the ones playing a trick on him, after all.
