Mice invade European Parliament
Mice are “small” and mock your cling film, memo reveals.
An internal memo warns of an incoming mouse invasion at the European Parliament’s offices on the aptly named “Square de Meeus” (imagine a very, very, very posh person saying “mouse”).
“If we do not make it more difficult for them, they will stay – and multiply,” says the (frankly a little bit right-wing populist) email warning. The punctuatory pause for emphasis is from the original.
The little critters, we’re told, “laugh” at our attempts to cover foodstuffs in paper or plastic film.
“Please report mice to Erik,” it continues. He, we’re reassured ominously, “will take measures if needed.”
