OMFG: Giant Rats Are Taking Over The PlanetMadeleine Davies3/31/14 11:30pmFiled to: ratsbirminghamgross682EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkImportant announcement: I've just hopped out of my DeLorean after a disastrous visit to the future and thought I should tell you what I saw there. No, it wasn't hover boards and sneakers that lace themselves. It was rats. Huge fucking rats everywhere you go and — guess what? — they run everything.It's not as if this future hellscape has been entirely unpredicted. The rat takeover — right now, in 2014 — has already started and the only thing left to do is wait for the situation to get worse. (SMASH CUT to the year 2250 when America's rat citizens are swearing in their new rat president and laughing at us as we — the ones who survived the plague, anyway — dance for their entertainment.) Last week, a couple in Sweden killed a sixteen-inch rat in their home and now the pest control offices in Birmingham, UK are reporting sightings of rats as big as cats.
