But that's only fun for a couple seconds.

If you use glue traps to catch the mice instead of the snap traps, you can greatly extend your anti-mouse enjoyment.




We used to race mice. A buddy lived in a dump of an apartment building, and mice were a common sight. So he'd set out 5 or 6 glue traps before we left for the bars, and by the time we stumbled home drunk, they were usually full.

We would then take them out to the back yard, and arm ourselves with a can of hair spray and a lighter. First little fireball to make the treeline won.
Sometimes it takes a crazy person to see the truth. If so, I'm a freaking lunatic.

I'm a dang bleeding heart. Sad as it sounds I would probably keep the mouse in a cage and try to nurse it back to health. Pathetic... I know.

I used to have hamsters as a kid and I think mice are cute.

Get another apartment though... seriously.

That is hysterical. :-b :-b

Totally mean and wrong on so many levels as well, but hilarious nonetheless.

and your balls :-°


Huh? :-?

I gave him an option. Personally I'd just step on it to crush it's skull, but that's not exactly an option anyone would be able to do, so I gave a solid option.

And what's wrong with moving? If the landlord is stupid enough to think a few traps are going to stop a mouse problem, I'd hate to see how he deals with other problems, and I don't believe someone should have to live under those conditions.

So any other of your typical comments you want to add now?


Take it easy, his comment was aimed at theclefe, not you. :-?

You have to admit there's something kind of funny about a grown man seeking help on a football forum as to how to handle a little mouse with a broken leg. What's funny is I could possibly see myself starting a thread like this and if someone told me to find my balls, I'd have to just laugh and agree with them. :-b


exactly :-b


Ok, my apologies. I simply read it wrong. Sorry. Doh. !+)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.

Step 1: Purchase cigar cutter if you don't already have one

Step 2: insert mouse

Step 3: self evident...


On a serious note, I've had to euthanize many animals before - if you want it to be painless, there are 3 options:
1: barbituate overdose
2: CO2
3: cranial dislocation
