Talking the Bronze Rat

>>A man walked into a curio shop in Galveston Texas.
>>Looking around at the exotica, he noticed a very life- like, life-size

>>bronze statue of a rat. It had no price tag, but it looked so striking

>>that he decided he must have it.
>> He took it to the owner and asked "How much is the bronze rat?"
>>"Twelve dollars for the rat, a hundred dollars if you bring it back,"
>>the owner.
>> The man gave the shop owner twelve dollars. "I'll take the rat; And
>>I won't be bringing it back."
>>As he walked down the street carrying the bronze rat, he noticed that
>>a few real rats had crawled out of alleys and sewers, and began
>>following him down the street. This was a bit disconcerting, so he
>>began to walk a little bit faster.
>>Within a couple of blocks, the group of rats behind him grew to over a

>>hundred, and they began squealing.
>> He started to trot towards the Harbor. He took a nervous look around

>>and saw that the rats numbered in the thousands, maybe in the
>>millions, and they were all squealing and coming towards him faster
>>and faster. Terrified, he ran to the edge of the water and threw the
>>bronze rat as far out into the Harbor as he could.
>> Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the water after it,
>>and were drowned.
>> The man walked back to the curio shop. "Aha," said the owner,
>>"You're bringing it back!"
>> "Actually no," said the man. "I came back to see how much you
>>for that little bronze Mexican over there!"

Funny. I heard it as a blue pigeon, but the rat version works well too.

Ive never hear any other version, but I like it.

"A government big enough to give you everything you want, is strong enough to take everything you have."
-Gerald Ford/Thomas Jefferson

"A Republic, if you can keep it"
- Benjamin Franklin
