Finally fed up enough to do something about it, I bought two Mouse Cubes at WalMart today for $1.47 each. They're plastic tubes with loose lids on the ends, that can be pushed open by a mouse to enter but then shut by gravity. Sure enough, within six hours of setting it in the kitchen, I had captured the mouse that I see there every day. He didn't even seem to notice me, he was so engrossed in eating his cracker and peanut butter. I thought about killing the little bastard, but he was a baby and I didn't have the heart to do it. Also, I am willing to use lethal traps when necessary, but it wasn't necessary to kill him, since I'd already captured him alive. I drove to the edge of town and dumped him, and watched him sprint for his meager little life across the frozen road. Hasta nunca, bastardo.

Eventual One-Hit Wonders

I can't believe it's been a decade. I didn't think the game would last until summer, let alone this long, with no signs of stopping. Go »

Supercentena-What-Now?

Please forgive my morbid mood, but does anyone else wonder why it's newsworthy when someone new becomes the world's oldest living person? It's not like the death of the previous record-holder was unexpected. Go »
