Oh, and stolen from another forum:

"An episode of Barney Miller. Yemana was in the back room and got bit by a rat on the knee. Wojo pulls out his night stick and says something like, "I'll take care of this. How'd he get your knee, were you kneeling down?"

Yemana says, "No, I was standing up. He just reared up on his hind legs and bit me"

Wojo stares at him for a moment, then puts away the night stick and pulls out his gun and disappears into the back room.


And...

The only side effect I get when I eat rat poison is the neck cramps. Otherwise, the hallucinations are worth it.

This is not evidence of evolution, clearly these rats were designed by some superior being. Presumably as punishment for teh ghey or womyn or some such.

The kid on the left in the last panel kills me every time. Not only did he probably shove his friend down and run away, he later died of a heart attack and was eaten by the Secret Mutant Hero Team.

Meh, most rat poison is just anticoagulants, I worked in a factory where we made it and I liked to eat it in front of new hires just for kicks. That being said some of it isn't just anticoagulants, so know your rat poison before you eat it.

Didn't have a rat problem, but we did have some squirrels that ate only the light bulbs on our christmas lights. Not the wires. Nope. That would have made sense. These little pricks ate just the bulbs like they were freakin' Skittles or something.

Private_Citizen: I was watching "insomniac" with Dave Atell years ago and Dave was in New Orleans. That city has a problem with nutrias, which are basically rats the size of corgis. Dave rode in the back of a pickup with a SWAT guy who was using a silenced .22 rifle to "thin the herd". It was quite effective - and I doubt any rodent will develop an immunity to small arms fire.

/at least, I sure hope they don't!


Zombie rats?

And after a week of brazen predation (little bastard would come out of the wall and stare at me while I worked), that snapping sound is sooooo satisfying.

I like catching them in a live trap then releasing them in with one of my eats rodents sized snakes or lizards.
