Subject: The Bronze Rat
>
> A tourist walked into a Chinese curio shop in San
> Francisco. While looking around at the exotic
> merchandise, he noticed a very lifelike, life-sized
> bronze statue of a rat. It had no price tag, but was
> so incredibly striking the tourist decided he must
> have it.
>
> He took it to the old shop owner and asked, "How much
> for the bronze rat?" "Ahhh, you have chosen wisely!
> It is $12 for the rat, one hundred dollars for the
> story," said the wise old Chinaman.
>
> The tourist quickly pulled out twelve dollars."Screw
> that! I'll just take the rat, you can keep the story."
>
>
> As he walked down the street carrying his bronze rat,
> the tourist noticed that a few real rats had crawled
> out of the alleys and sewers and had begun following
> him down the street. This was a bit disconcerting so
> he began walking faster. A couple blocks later he
> looked behind him and saw to his horror the herd of
> rats behind him had grown to hundreds, and they began
> squealing. Sweating now, the tourist began to trot
> toward the Bay. Again, after a couple blocks, he
> looked around only to discover that the rats now
> numbered in the MILLIONS, and were squealing and
> coming toward him faster and faster. Terrified, he ran
> to the edge of the Bay and threw the bronze rat as far
> as he could into the Bay. Amazingly, the millions of
> rats all jumped into the Bay after the bronze rat, and
> were all drowned.
>
> The man walked back to the curio shop in Chinatown.
> "Ahhh," said the owner, "You have come back for
> story?" "Nah," said the man, "I came back to see if
> you have a bronze Democrat"
