This is pretty cool, though probably less so if you’re a small-to-medium-sized rodent. Then again, if you’re a rodent and you’re reading this blog, well, that’s also pretty cool, and maybe, if you’ve learned to read, you’ve also figured out a way to thwart predatory owls. Then again again, if rodents are learning to read, should I be worried about them taking over the world and conducting evil experiments? Was Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy a documentary? I forget.
Also, they should change that saying from “quiet as a mouse” to “quiet as an owl.” Mice actually can make quite a racket. One time I stayed at my friend’s really old farmhouse and the mice woke me up in night. I thought the place was haunted. True story.
