Hence, we present the following documentation of a squirrel nibbling a plain pizza slice in a tree in Park Slope Thursday morning as evidence that the lesson still applies in 2016:

Could this be the same squirrel a Gothamist tipster captured eating a folded slice in a neighborhood park last July? Could be, but this bushy-tailed rodent — photographed by Brooklyn native Ben Popper — seems to have consumed his pizza crust-first, and un-creased.
We commend him for dragging his take-out up the varmint equivalent of a four-story walkup.
