Journal Journal: Alaska's Rat Island finally rat-free after 229 years!

http://www.reuters.com/article/scienceNews/idUSTRE55B66920090612 is reporting that Alaska's famous tourist destination 'Rat Island' is now rat-free after 229 years! Apparently this sobering success was a joint effort between the U.S. federal government and several 'Conservation' groups and involved spending more than 2.5 million dollars to drop poison onto the island from helicopter-hoisted buckets for a week and a half last autumn. A Mr. Tony Soprano was quoted as saying that "currently there are no signs that any of those damn rats survived but since the Rats ruled the island in question since the 1780's we ain't going to be sure until we're sure". He went on to say that "for all we know there might still be a couple of happy rats still hiding out there and this all could have been for nothing".

The island was infested by the non-native Norway Rats whom apparently jumped from a sinking Japanese ship way back in 1780. They reportedly ruled the island with an iron claw, terrorizing and killing all but the largest birds on the island and being total dicks.

Alright you Primitive Screwheads, listen up! You see this? This... is my boomstick! The twelve-gauge double-barreled Remington. S-Mart's top of the line. You can find this in the sporting goods department. That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that? -Ash
