If only there was a way to musically lead them out of town.

If only the Germans could devise a way to kill off a lot of something in a very short space of time...

Didnt read the TFA or TFT and kind of thought the Germans had taken care of this problem some years ago, but I'm going to go with Rotterdam.

Two points for that one. Quick and dirty, just how I like it.

Is no one going to point out that this town should be less concerned with rodentia and more concerned with the part of the story where ALL THE KIDS DIE?

Which part? The rats die, the children vanish into a mountain. According to some versions they end up in Romania. Which, as people tell me, isn't as bad as dying.

They'll find a way. Just give it time.
