The Mouse Trap


According to an email from the assistant curator to staff at The Museum of Rural Life at the University of Reading, the dead mouse “was not described as being there on the database” in the listing description for the long-retired trap.
The "Perpetual Mouse Traps" joke has been made many times, but it's just so easy.

Two posts in a day! It must be Christmas! Or Ragnarok, whatever.

I saw this BuzzFeed article the other day. There is something nearly poetic about a mouse making its way into a 155-year-old mouse trap and dying.

Have a great week!
