  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Mouse Problem by sminobe on 10 September 2004 6:06pm
We have a mouse in our house.
Made me think of the MP sketch.
Just thought I'd share...

With apologies to Danny Kaye:
I put the pellets with the poison
On the shelf
By myself,

But the mouse
In the house
Eats them quick,
& won't get sick.

thats a pain in the ass sminobe . reminds me of a monty python sketch about men dessgin up as mice . did you know that they have a run in the wheel and when they finish doing that someone brings out the cheese !

Yes, that's the sketch I was thinking of & not Arthur Ewing & his Musical Mice, tho' if the darned thing doesn't die of the poison soon, I may just bring out my mallet...

Or maybe, well..., maybe mice aren't so bad after all. What's a little poop in the tea towels, after all?

Also, I like cheese. And a run on the wheel sounds like a nice form of exercise!
