doglover: FooDog: Ideal solution would be a .22 PCP air rifle with polymag predator pellets.

Too complicated. Just have every man, woman, and child carry a slingshot.

I like your direction, but you lack vision. Machete slingshot biatch!

AdolfOliverPanties: FloydA: And ten thousand people-oids split into small tribes,
coveting the highest of the sterile sky-scrappers,
like packs of dogs assaulting the
glass fronts of Love Me Avenue...

Nice.  Exactly what I was thinking.


Fleas the size of rats sucked
on rats the size of cats.
And ten thousand people-oids split into small tribes

They got 2,000 out of 25 million of us, huh? Looks like it's hantavirus sharing time.

i assume they have some pretty heavy gun control in iran. the solution in louisiana is to make nutria hunting a fun pastime which is often enjoyed by drunken cajuns.

if only the iranians weren't denied their second amendment rights this wouldn't be a problem.

This just sounds like a weak excuse for the sounds of gunfire ringing out in the city.

CRACK-OOM

"Hey, did you hear that?"

"Oh, the gunshot? Yes, that was a sniper?"

"Sniper!?! Are they shooting at us?"

"Oh, Allah forbid, no. They are shooting at... uh... rats. Yes, rats."

Ten teams of sharpshooters armed with rifles equipped with infra-red sights have bagged more than 2,000 of the brutish rodents in recent weeks, city officials told state media. That's a drop in the ocean: Iran's rat population easily outnumbers the sprawling capital's 12 million inhabitants. The city council is now boosting the number of sniper squads to 40, officials said.

This was my favorite part. We deployed snipers, and they killed 2000 rats, a drop in the bucket. So let's quadruple the number of snipers, and we'll then have 4 drops in our bucket.

Why not deploy dog-sized cats?  I can't see that causing any issues.
