and, boy, does evolution take its time
If you send it to the country it’ll find it’s way back home
Making teachers look dumb. Sad.
Sorry, but it appears the higher life forms are de-evolving. Apes, get ready.
Is there any such thing as a mouse in the house?
This is going to take a long time!
We have them occasionally. I live trap them and take them to an unpopulated area about a mile away and release them. It has to be at least a mile though or they will find their way back. I don’t have the heart to kill them.
On the other hand, modern archaeologists like nothing better than a nice cave or rock shelter with layers of ancient litter to dig through….skeleton remnants of ancient adolescents a bonus.
Not sure I would refer to St. Michael as a “higher life form”..
Trap, but not poison. Dead mice in the woodwork smell worse than live ones.
And, what gives us the right to call ourselves “higher” life forms?
“still evolving…” True. Future humans are all slouched over with their hands in the phone-clutching position permanently. Glazed looks and unresponsive to others.
Ok, please tell me why people say calling cards for poop or droppings?? It sounds so dumb. In fact, the first time I hear them use that phrase in this strip I didn’t even know what they were talking about. Is it a Canadian thing?
Ah, mice…our bane at the cabin. The solution is mouse traps baited with peanut butter.
I have suggested to our HOA that instead of hiring an exterminator service that will kill the mice (we live near a nature preserve) that we just buy a few humane cage traps and loan them out as needed. I had one mouse get in through my basement. I was unaware that mice could climb stairs, but beagle #2 was 15 years old and trying to catch it and I was afraid she’d kill herself before the company came. Eventually the poor little mouse died of starvation and dehydration, wrapped around my dog’s water bowl, unable to get into it. I found that so sad, the mouse died and my dog almost didn’t make it from running up and down the stairs so much. I was calling the company and saying, “The mouse just ran right in front of me. When are you going to get here?”
Elly sure knows what she is talking about. She has sunken eyes in the fourth panel. As for her head shape, note the sloping, subhuman type.
Elly could be the Missing Link: Dropouticus Hoserus
Ellie, you are assuming that humans are a higher life form. A good theory needs to be based on solid fact, which is why your theory is suspect.
The mousehole was probably in the back wall under the sink,and they wouldn’t have found it if April hadn’t taken out all the pots and pans
Canadians have evolved differently. They have flip top heads!
What? No controversy about whether or not evolution is real? I’m disappointed.
That’s an awfully big hole in the garbage. How big are Canadian mice?!!
For us we have traps ready. Last year lost count number of mice caught and killed.
And cue up “All On A Mouse’s Night” by Genesis; Wind & Wuthering album, if anyone is curious. Great band, great album!
Also because if you’re a Christian, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS EVOLUTION!
But evolution hasn’t worked nearly fast enough, so now the higher life forms themselves are hurrying things along, toward maximal failure.
I worked in a library from 1989 to 1992 and we had mice getting into the building. They set out three mousetraps. One librarian opened his locker in the staff lounge to find that mice had gotten in there and had left “calling cards.” Yep, he used language you never hear librarians use when they’re on the reference desk or otherwise around the patrons.
You mean he’s Mikey Mouse? ;D
There is no such thing as EVOLUTION!
