Ramon The Fast Talking Squirrel Thanks Human For Snack

Squirrels are chatty little critters, but they don't talk much around humans because they're afraid of being captured or killed, that is, until a human becomes their best friend by giving them food.
Then that human gets to hear the funny way a squirrel expresses its gratitude- in a strange, nasal kind of voice that almost sounds like words we can understand.
K. John Stewart provided the voice over squirrel translation in this video, but Ramon the squirrel would like everyone to know that K.'s translation is correct. Here's the transcript:
Hello there, I am a fat little squirrel sitting on your porch. Thank you very much for giving me these delicious walnuts. I like them very much. You are a nice person. I will be sure to come back tomorrow to get some more walnuts. You are my favorite person in the neighborhood. I like you like you love you…
