Bad Publicity

It must be pingback week here at dovetail, but there you are: these days, rats are surfin’ the zeitgeist.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve suspected all along that the black death was caused by space aliens, and I, for one, am delighted that a major representative of the American media has been the first to establish that as a fact. Rats around the world breathe a sigh of relief.

One last time, folks: IT WAS THE FLEAS, DO YOU HEAR ME, THE FLEAS, NOT THE RATS! Humans ALSO carried fleas from one place to another in this period in history, and rats died of the plague in numbers that blow the human casualty rate right out of the water. So there. Harumph!

Pity the History Channel. How the mighty have fallen….
