Where Do You Buy a Rat Trap That Big? 

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

The picture below is not an April Fools’ joke. Apparently, a massive 16 inch (40 cm) rat attempted to move in with a family in Sweden. Its advances were, as you might expect, unwelcome.

That is one giant goddamned rat.

The rodent had gnawed through cement and wood to break into the the Solna apartment, pest controllers said. And once it was in, it flooded the kitchen by chewing through the water pipes connected to the dishwasher. It eventually became “so domesticated” that it “just sat under the table,” Bengtsson’s husband, Erik Korsas, said.

A few days after the first sighting, the family put their kitchen on “lockdown” and called an exterminator…

A few days? What the hell were they doing in the meantime?
