    I read that earlier. Pretty incredible, eh? How's that for lousy karma? I'm definitely gonna think twice before I flush another bug down the toilet.

    I know it's not nice to say. But he deserved it, I mean that's not a way to kill an animal.

    Yea. I mean if you catch a mouse and it's still alive, just put it back outside. If you kill it, it's not going to stop one of it's relatives from coming in later on anyway.
     
  6. Yeah, everyone knows you strap the mouse to a miniature post, and stake it outside as a warning for any other would-be intruders. ;)

    Chances are, his mousy relatives are ALREADY in the house.

    so, burning house = great mousetrap.

    Too funny. That would have been a perfect scene for a movie like "Meet The Fockers".

  9. Totally agreed. Sorta....

    I do agree with the karma aspect of what you say. I don't kill any animals. Ever. Not intentionally anyway. Hell, I even carry spiders outside.

    I don't know - sounds more like attempted insurance fraud to me. :smug:

    "Ok, here's the plan: we tell them a mouse that was on fire ran into the house, collect the insurance, and move to Pasadena. It's so silly that they have to believe it!"

  14. I dunno man, maybe it was a mouse for hire. the whole thing stinks of deceit. ;)
     
  15. You guys may be on to something!

    This ....mmmmm, guy was seen in the area at the time of the fire. He is suspected to be the king pin of an operation with ties to organized crime.

    Keep on the look out for Jerry Mouse (tom & Jerry) and Mighty Mouse. These alleged suspects have been named by The Three Blind Mice who have been apprehended in a foiled attempt in a nearby neighborhood.

    Sorry, I was bored.
