    The Bronze Rat

    A man walked into a curio shop in Galveston Texas.
    Looking around at the exotica, he noticed a very life-like, life-size
    bronze
    statue of a rat. It had no price tag, but it looked so striking that he
    decided he must have it.
    He took it to the owner and asked "How
    much is the bronze rat?" "Twelve dollars for the rat, a hundred
    dollars if
    you bring it back," said the owner.
    The man gave the shop owner twelve dollars. "I'll take the rat; And I
    won't
    be bringing it back."
    As he walked down the street carrying the bronze rat, he noticed that a
    few
    real rats had crawled out of alleys and sewers, and began following him
    down
    the street. This was a bit disconcerting, so he began to walk a little
    bit
    faster. Within a couple of blocks, the group of rats behind him grew to
    over
    a hundred, and they began squealing. He started to trot towards the
    Harbor.
    He took a nervous look around and saw they were all squealing and
    coming
    towards him faster and faster.
    Terrified, he ran to the edge of the water and threw the bronze rat as
    far
    out into the Harbor as he could.
    Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the water after it, and
    were
    drowned.
    The man walked back to the curio shop. "Aha," said the owner, "You're
    bringing it back !"
    "Actually no," said the man. "I came back to see how much you want for
    that
    little bronze Mexican over there ."
