    "Get me somethin' that goes BOOM!" [​IMG] My favorite line of the whole film. Thanks, Joe, for that nice tutorial on... well, attempting to get rid of pack rats!

    No. You must read the titles, I got them in the end.
    The worst part is she handed me her 4-10 shot gun, I cocked it, aimed, and pulled the trigger. It went *click*. I opened it up to see an empty chamber.
    I quite firmly told her, My Dear, don't ever hand me an unloaded gun when I ask you to get me a firearm.

    [​IMG] I can imagine how that type of conversation would go at our house. Calm but "quite firmly", I'm sure... [​IMG]

    I need to see the bodies. Very certain that I heard hysterical rodent laughter.

    I thought I would spare the children. Lord only knows what could become of a special snowflake child if they were to see a dead rat, let alone two dead rats.
