Scrouitch la souris: C'est l'histoire d'une souris qui traverse la route et Scrouitch la souris.

English translation of Scrouitch la souris: C'est l'histoire d'une souris qui traverse la route et Scrouitch la souris.

Scrouitch the mouse: It's the story of a mouse crossing the road and Scrouitch the mouse.

This is a one-line French humor which heavily relies on play of words and is a bit macabre. The joke comes in through the use of 'Scrouitch', a phonetic spelling of an abrupt and sharp sound, often used to denote something being squished or crushed. The story starts off telling about a mouse crossing the road, and ends abruptly with 'Scrouitch the mouse', implying that the mouse was squished while crossing, leaving the narrative unfinished. It can be compared to dark English humor where the story ends at an unexpected note, creating humour.
