Baby Mice

In atonement for posting that ugly dog pic a couple days ago, I'm going to balance out this site's cuteness ratio by posting this today:

Which reminds me of one of my favourite (spelled European-style for added credibility) exchanges of dialogue ever, from Donnie Darko:

Girl #1: Hey, you guys, guess what?! My Mom said the school is closed today because it's flooded.

Girl #2: No way...

Girl #1: Beth's Mom said the boys locker room was flooded and they founded feces everywhere.

Girl #2: What are feces?

Girl #1: Baby mice.

Girl #2: Awwwww!

Southland Tales can't come fast enough.

That's weird, because I heard Linda Ronstadt's "Somewhere Out There" today and it took all my strength not to vomit... I forgot how terrible Steven Spielberg can be. First Batteries Not Included, then An American Tail, Hook and now War of the Worlds...ugh.

It's only cute until you realize that mice are major vectors for diseases. I guess the feces anecdote relates well. Kinda unbalanced in my eyes, still. Sorry Dan, I don't have "cute" triggers in my brain. At least any that I don't repress.

Yuck. I hate rodents, even that one.

How come I can handle our hamster and our bearded dragon, but I still gag at the site of that cutie patootie baby mouse?

Are you serious Colleen? Aren't dragons, especially ones with beards (and I'm guessing a monocle and English accent) aren't real? Is his name Merlin or something? Dan, how come you've never shared this dragon story before?

One baby mouse = cute, 300 baby mice = nightmares for the rest of your life. Same goes for birds. One bird is nice in a tree and tolerable in the lawn, 300 birds will peck off your face and eat your brains. The only thing thatís not horrible in mass quantities is puppies!!!! Unless of course itís that crispy beef jerky dog from a few posts ago.

or rabid Cujo puppies. I bet they could do some damage that ain't so cute.

I guess the mouse is cute...if you can suppress the thought that it's likely spreading the plague.

Dragons name is Ti (short for Tiamet).

I've had the 300 baby mice experience, so even one mouse makes me gag.

Were you about to toss that handfull of "snack food" into your mouth and chow down?

By Blogger DanjerusKurves, at 5:17 PM  

Okay, someone has to stand up for the baby mouse... that thing is damned cute - and I'm not someone who uses the word cute at every opportunity.

Donnie Darko must be prominent in the collective unconsciouness of the blogosphere today. This is the second post I read about it.

Just because a mouse is a rodent doesn't automatically make it "disease-ridden." So I'll also stand up for the mouse. Aww, that nose!

I think I might recite a poem I heard from somwhere: I think mice are rahter nice they nibble things that they shouldn't touch and most people don't like them much but I think mice are rarther nice. and as well as that right now I've got nine mice in my room. Seven of which are babies 1 week and 2 days old.
