Maybe William Goldman’s mythical Fire Swamp exists…in California?

It finally happened.  Rodents of unusual size (R.O.U.S.’s) were recently spotted in our country, at a waste-water treatment facility in California. Not sure these R.O.U.S.’s are as dangerous as those braved and defeated by The Man in Black (Westley) and our fair Princess Buttercup outside of Guilder, and just beyond the famed Cliffs of Insanity. In fact, they may even be gentle like guinea pigs.

But still, one can only imagine the panic that might set in should a few people stumble across some lightning sand, or are charred by flame spurts in the next few weeks.

Just beware of the man with six fingers.

This entry is dedicated to the memory of Peter Falk, who recently passed – he will be forever remembered as Columbo, and the narrator of the timeless fairy tale that is The Princess Bride.
