On further review such an organization might do a hell of a lot of good. I can just see the boxes... a gift of love from your friends at Orkin.

#8 The rats "are killing numerous farm birds, are damaging grape and corn crops, and have destroyed 14 hectares of grain in one of the districts. These rats can climb trees and are destroying apples, pears and other fruit. The rat invasion may also give rise to different epidemics,"

Isn't this about the spot where Godzilla rises from his ocean slumber?

#9 So some Interfax hack stumbled on to the backset of the sequel to Night of the Lepus. And those things bred like, uh, lepi.

#12 An Uzbek specialist bred the species by crossing an ordinary rat with a muskrat

Hmmm...a Mu-Rat.

#13 It sounds like Murat's family is on vacation.


Strike that, I owe a heartfelt apology to plague-bearing vermin everywhere for that horrible libel.

#16 I don't think that these rats are resistant to napalm. I'm sure some scientist will go back to the drawing board and work on that fault.

Has anywone prancing about the town in green colored pantyhose playing a reeded instrument?

#17 I don't care how mean the rats are, all you have to do is step on them.

#18 "I don't care how mean the rats are, all you have to do is step on them."

Hope you get your leg back, Charles. They crossed a ordinary rat with a muskrat, remember? Muskrats weigh from 2 to 4 pounds. They measure 10-14 inches in length, excluding their 8-11 inch tails.
Of course, I've seen Norway rats as big or bigger. Me, I'm packing heat.
