We recently got back home from a two-week absence, and were met by a rather rude guest in our kitchen. A mouse crawled into the back of the refrigerator and decided to meet its maker in such a dubious spot. Days of battling the entrenched smell with water, vinegar, and bleach followed.
Canadian DJ Joel Zimmerman can relate. He found a dead mouse inside his computer, but his response wasn't filled with cleaning products. Zimmerman decided to own it, to the tune of mouse heads of various colors. He even changed his stage name to the leeted moniker "deadmau5".
Considering that Zimmerman is now one of the most famous DJs in the world (we thought that that and 50 cents buys you a pack of gum, yet here we are profiling him), it's working out. And no, he is not Jewish. Could you ever imagine a Jew wearing that to work?
As for our kitchen, it's now filled with mousetraps. Somehow, we Jews don't get inspired by dead rodents...
