The Bronze Rat

- 13 October 2013, 07:10

A tourist walks into a curio shop in 
San Francisco. Looking around at the exotica, 
he notices a very lifelike life-sized bronze 
statue of a rat. It has no price tag, but 
is so striking he decides he must have it.

He takes it to the owner: 
“How much for the bronze rat?” 

“$12 for the rat, $100 for the story,” says the owner.

The tourist gives the man $12. 
“I’ll just take the rat, you can keep the story.”

As he walks down the street carrying his bronze rat, 
he notices that a few real rats have crawled out 
of the alleys and sewers and begun following him 
down the street. This is disconcerting, and he 
begins walking faster. But with in a couple of 
blocks, the herd of rats behind him has grown 
to hundreds, and they begin squealing.

He begins to trot toward the Bay, looking 
around to see that the rats now number in 
the MILLIONS, and are squealing and coming 
toward him faster and faster.

Concerned, even scared, he runs to the edge of 
the Bay, and throws the bronze rat as far out 
into the water as he can. Amazingly, the millions 
of rats all jump into the Bay after it, and are 
all drowned.

The man walks back to the curio shop. 

“Ah-ha!” says the owner, 
“you have come back for the story?” 

“No,” says the man, 

“I came back to see if you have a bronze Politician!”
