Weird News: Rodent Edition
Talk about curiosity killing the rat. In Miami on the night of May 1, 2011, a rodent with a major death wish climbed to the top of a street light pole and stupidly proceeded to chew through a fusible link. Being that electrical fuses and rat teeth make for a very poor match, it was only a short time before an explosion ensued. With a snap, crackle and pop, out went all of the street lights and down from the light post came the smoking, singed and very dead rat.
A group of equally curious people from a nearby bar went out to investigate the then dark intersection where the explosion had occurred. One of the group members made the disgusting discovery of the electrocuted rat with its fur still smoking. Unfortunately around the very same time two vehicles collided in the darkness and hit several of the pedestrians. Sadly, one person died at the scene and five others were rushed to nearby hospitals …all because one rat randomly decided to play his own version of rodent Russian roulette.
While the chances of something bizarre like this ever happening again are about a gazillion to one, be safe my lovelies and watch out for those crazy kamikaze rats just waiting to wreak havoc on the world!
