The merry mice of Hennepin County

‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the courthouse, not a creature was stirring, except for a mouse. There may, in fact, be many mice spending the holidays in the Hennepin County Government Center, according to an e-mail recently circulated to employees at the facility.

A pest control company has been called, but won’t start its extermination efforts until January because “there will be way too much food in the building during the holidays for this aggressive plan to be effective,” the e-mail said.

Plus it would, of course, completely wreck the holiday season for the mice involved.
In any event, the e-mail goes on to warn employees that “mice may be small, but they can cause large problems.” (Napolean was actually the same way.)

Hopefully this doesn’t sound too cheesy, but best wishes to the furry little friends of the Hennepin County staff as they enjoy this, their final holiday season. I also offer the following piece of advice: Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow, well, you know the rest …
