Mouse 1, Moron 0.

I was gonna say that this shows that Canadian gun freaks can be just as stupid as the American ones. But then I realized the American would have been trying to hit the mouse with a butt of an AK-47 and would have shot himself 50 or 60 times, pausing only to reload.

No way, pad, he'd have shot at the mouse 50 or 60 times, missing it entirely but ventilating the house.

It's not known what happened to the mouse.

After peeing all over the floor from laughing so hard, he went home to Mrs. Mouse and they made love until the next morning. Then he reloaded the gun in anticipation of the next human encounter.

Did I tell this story already? Stop me if you've heard this. The one about the people trying to convince me to go deer drinking hunting with them, and recounting great times in the ol' deer cabin like the night Granpa shot at a mouse and hit the pressure cooker, covering the interior with boiled dinner and shrapnel? If I haven't, I should have. If I did, well, a brain is a terrible thing to waste, and I apparently have.

I'm reminded of a Willie and Joe cartoon where Joe is preparing to shoot a rat...

snork @ jeff. maybe they were picking out pieces of mouse all over the house for weeks, etc. or, it just ran back into its hidey hole and laffed its behind off.

Personal experience:

1- Fly swatters do not kill mice.
2-Terriers kill mice but bring them to you after the fact.

I found a field mouse in my house and being the incredibly brave blogette that I am I picked up the first weapon I could find, a fly swatter. I hit the little rodent who then just looked at me as if to say, "REALLY?"

By the time I reached up to hit it again my terrier had caught it, shaken it, killed it and presented it to me in a very smug fashion.

My terrier has never been outside except for the call of nature but he knew what to do.

I was proud of him except for his snide look at me and the way he flipped his tail as he walked off.

Gun control is making sure your aim is correct. Not knowing that your gun is pointed at your forhead is not gun control, it is stupid.

Mighty Mouse strikes again!
Guns? He turns your gun against you!
