ChaoticLimbs: Do not google Rat King.


Jesus. Every time someone says don't touch the stove... man, my eyes just won't give that image up.

wotthefark: I remember that guy.

Honestly I thought is was going to be some Lemon Party Goatse or Blue Waffle.

When someone tells me NOT to Google something, I GOOGLE IT.


I think you did an image search. Try doing a text search.

LordOfThePings: This guy's on the job.

I see him riding the 358.


By far the most conservatively dressed and cleanest rider on that route, I'd reckon.

WMittensRomney: What's that humming noise?... (nsfw)


Mom worked in the ER in a NYC hospital in the late 40's. Told stories about noses and fingers/toes of babies. Too awful to dwell on for too long.

wotthefark: Or with it being the puget sound, there could be some deadly radiation from Japan and it mixes with a Geoduck.

Then the rat evolves at an exponential rate cross breeds with the Goeduck causing an elephant size penis then it goes on a rampage but instead of spreading rabies it spreads Pubic lice who are also hyper-evolved.


I would watch your syfy movie...

What we need to do is get some large traps, bait them, connect them to some sort of autoloader mechanism which rolls them into the launching chamber of a potato gun which is hooked up to a compressor. Whenever the chamber detects movement and something warm inside, a small programmable microcontroller triggers it to launch the rat (or whatever) into Elliot Bay.

If the tourists like fish throwing, they should love this.

I've been killing the little farks left and right this year (mice). Isn't that one sign of the apocalypse?

I'm opening up Borrow-a-Gorilla for when those cats get out of hand. Right down the block.

Whatthefark: Where else would Mrs Brisby and her rat children go when they start tunneling? Let's hope she can talk to Nicodemus before it's too late.


You have failed. Now you have to sit in the corner.

FTA: "People can get bitten, can get rabies," said resident Regina Boyd.

This lady is the perfect example of why interviewing people on the street is the stupidest journalistic trend in the history of mankind.

How likely is it for a rat to have rabies? Nearly unheard of. How likely is it for a rat with rabies to live long enough to pass it on? Nearly impossible. Rats are dead-end carriers.

Can wild rats give you diseases? Yep: easily. Rabies? Less likely than reported alien abductions.

That's some mighty fine reporting, Lou.

Tickle Mittens: Misty Mundae


No. I'll be casting this masterpiece and it will be on skinemax. It's more classy.

Lead role as a "washed up hooker on Aurora" goes to Michelle Bauer NSFW but edited for skinemax quality. No. not Jack Bauer's daughter - the chick from "Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers" and "Gingerbreadman 2: The passion of the crust".

I don't want to give away the ending but everyone knows you are going to need a chainsaw to castrate a giant Rat Gooeyduck penis.

You may have a cameo as
"man who get's eaten by giant Pubic Lice".

It was "Brisby" in the movie for copyright purposes (Wham-O didn't like the uncredited product tie-in, I'm guessing.)

Oh, right. I figured I'd have to fail in there somehow, to keep the cosmic balance in order. God, that movie was terrible.

Will Red Mill be catering the moviefilm? If so, I'm in.

moops: Seattle is getting its own Big Dig?

Good luck with that!


In roughly 100 feet deep loose fill from the end of the 19th century no less.

Seattle could have another Great Fire.

On my wall...
imageshack.us
"The Underground City
After the great Seattle fire of 1889, cities from all over the world sent money to Seattle. With the 120,000 dollars sent, people began to move here. According to the 1890 census, the city gained 17,000 people. The rebuilding of the town started before the ashes were cold. Instead of wood like the original town, they used bricks and mortar. They regraded the hills by raising the streets. The raising of the streets caused the first floors of buildings to become basements. These basements were forgotten and called the Underground City. The great Seattle fire killed one horse, and a million rats. No people were killed."

When I was a kid, my Granddad had a rat infestation in his corn crib. He called an outfit that set out poison and within a few days all the rats were dead.

If you want this movie made right, it's time to call Roger Corman!
And, next door to the Rent-A-Cat (which I had presumed was a catapult) will be the new location for the Confuse-A-Cat! Step 3 - PROFIT!
