LINK: Have a mouse problem? And beer?

Posted by on September 1, 2011 at 2:56 pm.

A mouse is living in my home. He (or she?) is a smaller mouse that rarely shows his face, but when he does, it’s certainly an event for everyone involved.

Gwendolyn doesn’t like mousetraps. Why kill a living creature that’s simply trying to make the best of its life? She bought one of those $20 traps where we tactfully lure the mouse into a large box filled with peanut butter, but the doors quickly close and trap the mouse inside. And while our dogs certainly love the peanut butter, our mouse isn’t falling for the trick.

Perhaps beer is our solution. My bloodthirsty cousin, who is nearly appalled that we haven’t slain our mouse foe yet, suggested another idea: get the mouse drunk. All we need is a pale, ramp and a little leftover Schlafly Summer Lager from a fun Friday night.

And if the mouse doesn’t like Summer Lager? Then, in my opinion, he doesn’t deserve to share in the warmth of my home anyway.
