The death-march of progress

After a box of flour spilt in our cereals cabinet, we’ve had a bit of a mice problem which called for the old standby of Victor Mouse Traps.  Knowing that we’ve tried this before, I though they may get the hang of it as depicted here.  I left for the weekend shortly afterwards and when I returned, saw on the cereals cabinet an evelope written on the back “Body Count” with 11 hash marks on it.  Thank God evolution’s slow.
