La Peste, Belfast-style

I had a few beers last night, so all willpower to stay away from the blog has vanished. This item on BBC Northern Ireland deserves a shout, not least for the comedy value of the rather anthropomorphic quotes from witnesses to these giant rats:

“They are like cats. They are stone deaf, they fly up and down the road and play tig with the buses.
“They come out in daylight. Nothing seems to scare them. If a bus was coming, the rat would just dilly dally along the road.
“Nothing seems to deter them. They don’t seem to be frightened of human people.”

‘Human people’?
