Hamelin, the German town where the fabled Pied Piper charmed the rats into a river, is now overrun with — rats, the BBC is reporting.

There aren’t many Pied Pipers around these days.  What the people of Hamelin need to do now is get a lot of cats to kill the rats.


Then they’ll have to get a lot of dogs to worry the cats.

Then they’ll need some cows with crumpled horns to toss the dogs. Hey, I don’t like where this is going.
