Two years is not too long a break for gathering new material. DonkeyBlog's Daily Roll is back for another rant, albeit with an international flavour. Sit back and enjoy the fire, and if you're still a fan of the 'longform', I'll still be bashin' it out over at thisdonkey.blogspot.com, so please drop by...

Cracking the Mousey Browns
So we're just sitting here watching the box the other night and out of the corner of my eye, I see a farking mouse!Well, I'm hoping it's a mouse and not a rat ... but Fark!A Farking mouse!
Now I don't wanna say I was born with a silver spoon up my arse, but I have managed to get through the first 36 years of my life without having had to deal with mice!Sure, I've had possums, snakes, massive cockroaches and ridiculous, steal-your-baby-sized tropical spiders ... but never mice!
Makes me feel like I've failed 'cause my place is now so dirty that vermin wanna live here.Gross man.It's always the way; you finally give-in and get a cleaner every 2 weeks 'cause you don't have tome to live and clean, so instead of actually cleaning a bit here and there every few days, you do absolutely nothing and let the place turn into a cesspit for 2 weeks until the cleaner comes, just so that you get your money's worth ... well, that's what we do, anyway.
So my first step in 'Operation Eliminate Jerry' was to ignore it all and hope it went away.The next day, I find the end of an open banana gone.Mr Belfast tells me that traps work, and that yes, they really do go for cheese, so against all my innate, animal rights sensibilities, I went and bought some traps and set 'em up with cheese.
The next day, the bastards had eaten through a plum, another banana-end and a tomato (which they carried half-way across the room in a parody of one of those old-school Disney, ants-at-the-picnic cartoons.The cheese was untouched.
So I bite the bullet and decide that if they don't like cheese, but they eat bananas and tomatoes, I'll set the traps with that.I also vacuumed the Begeezus out of the space behind the oven.Since then, nothing on the traps has been touched, so I'm tipping they're either US Military-prototype Cyborg Mice with enhanced intelligence, or they've farked-off somewhere else.
Not sure which I'd prefer.But I still feel dirty.
Cute, my arse!This little, smug bastard was the nastiest piece of work going.That big, fat, black lady in the stripey socks just couldn't ever see it.Pic: http://4photos.net
