Andele', Andele', Yee-ha!

Headline: Mouse Thrown Into Fire Sets Home Ablaze

FORT SUMNER, N.M. - A mouse got its revenge against a homeowner who tried to dispose of it in a pile of burning leaves. The blazing creature ran back to the man's house and set it on fire.

I have, on occasion, seen mice run and very quickly, but to make it back inside from the backyard before the flames went out was not only amazing but also led me to believe this particular mouse had to be none other than Speedy Gonzales.

Granted, being tossed into a fire would have induced a desire in me to perform the Mexican Hat Dance - el pronto - but I would imagine the sheer will to take the household to hell with him, coupled with the added velocity of flames, allowed him to reach his destination before his ultimate demice.

The Fievel Department was called, however, didn't respond in time to control the blaze. Obviously, the fire engine was operated by his cousin: Slowpoke Rodriguez.

Thank you very much - glad to be home. :)
