So I started writing this whole article thinking I was going to make witty jokes about what the fox says and maybe throw in a few more fox puns. I have British friends. I could make fox jokes all day!
And then I saw the video – and you guys – forget the puns. This is an internet emergency. You need to see this. We don’t think this is what the city had in mind when they put these covers on … but fox trampolines are never the wrong answer.
Hello. The council spent £200k on these covers for the water works beyond our back garden & the local foxes think it was worth every penny. ??? pic.twitter.com/13TIzBpznt— Rachael Prior (@ORachaelO) June 16, 2018
Yup, fox trampolines. To say this post was a hit on Twitter is an understatement. People are so here for the fox party.
Please thank your local council on behalf of the internet. Thank you.— Meesh (@Artfulgrower) June 17, 2018
I'm stunned you have foxes in your backyard in what appears to be a reasonably urban setting! Wow...and they're pretty darn cute frolicking.— Erin Martin (@elginerin) June 16, 2018
I think it’s worth every penny to be able to watch foxes play on a giant trampoline.— Monique Stanton (@StantonMonique) June 17, 2018
That’s the best thing I’ve seen in ages. Might have to get a trampoline for my fox ....— JaneV (@mulberryjane) June 16, 2018
this is so pure and wholesome— Siobhan Thompson (@vornietom) June 17, 2018
And foxes are so here for the people party, too!
Dublin too. They love trampolines, have evolved with longer legs so as to reach into the tall wheelie-bins, are not afraid of humans. Walk right past you during the daylight ?— ?Kisabella (@karin_isabella) June 17, 2018

Awww here’s my fox by my house, his name is Albert Jr. and loves taking nap especially on the weekend. He doesn’t like when I vacuum my place and wakes him up, other than that he’s pretty chill! pic.twitter.com/85pa1QaMSu— Julie Gauthier (@JulieGauthier08) June 17, 2018

So thank you to the council, thanks to Rachael, thanks to nature for making foxes in the first place… just… thank you, life. This tweet and the fox party it spawned were exactly what today needed to be awesome.
