      > > Looking around at the exotics, he noticed a very lifelike, life-sized
      >bronze statue of a rat.
      > > It had no price tag, but it was so striking he decided
      >he must have it.
      > > >
      > > > He asked the owner, "How much for the bronze rat?"
      > > "Twelve dollars for the rat. One hundred dollars for the story," said the
      >owner. The tourist gave the man twelve dollars.
      > > >
      > > > "I'll take the rat. You can keep the story."
      > > >
      > > > As he walked down the street carrying his bronze
      >rat, he noticed that a few real rats had crawled out of the alleys and
      >sewers and they were following him down the street.
