Denture Stealing Mouse

Postby sox 06 » Mon Mar 26, 2007 3:11 pm

Some of the quotes in here are great. :-b

WATERVILLE, Maine (AP) - Never underestimate a mouse's determination. There's a mouse in Bill Exner's house that he says he has captured three times. Each time, the mouse escaped, and the last time the rodent made off with his lower dentures.

Exner, 68, said he and his wife Shirley scoured his bedroom after the dentures disappeared from his night stand.

"We moved the bed, moved the dressers and the night stand and tore the closet apart," he said. "I said, 'I knew that little stinker stole my teeth' - I just knew it."

They found a small opening in a wall where they suspected the mouse was coming and going, and their daughter's fiance, Eric Holt, stepped in to help.

"He brought a crowbar and hammer and he sawed off a section of wood and pulled up the molding and everything," Exner said. "It was quite a job."

They retrieved the dentures, and Holt suggested his future father-in-law boil them in peroxide and whatever else he could find for to disinfect it.

The mouse apparently isn't done. It frequently comes out and stares at Exner, his wife said.

"He's taunting him - I swear he's taunting him," Shirley Exner said.

These people sound like cheesy James Bond villians... they captured it 3 times and it's "escaped" each time? What does he set them up on a table with laser that moves ever so slowly toward them?

The mouse is probably Fievel.

And what ever happened to a tried-and-true mousetrap? SNAP!

If he's captured it three times, yet it's escaped each time, he never really captured it to begin with. :-b

Mouse is just toying with them. Maybe they wanna rent Hammy. I bet Hammy could get it. :-D

I love these two quotes :-b

"We moved the bed, moved the dressers and the night stand and tore the closet apart," he said. "I said, 'I knew that little stinker stole my teeth' - I just knew it."

"He's taunting him - I swear he's taunting him," Shirley Exner said.
