Ratcicles

I forgot to warn our student not to open up the upright freezer. I'm an asshole. I knew by the expression on her face that she had opened it. There is a certain face one makes when they open up a freezer door at work, on a Monday morning, and get knocked over by a ratcicle avalanche.

I don't want to hear any of you complain about the funk in your work fridge.

I owe her for spacing on this one.

I used to housesit for my advisor who, at the time, had a boa. Luckily they fed him ratcicles and not live anything as I couldn't have done that. Still, those ratpops were creepy, and they stunk when they defrosted. I also coudln't believe they stored ratcicles and food side by side in their freezer!

Cool. Do you hold them by the tail?

Jenny, there is a lot of debate over how to hold a ratcicle. I personally think that it's a matter of comfortzone and training experience. You do have a few rebels who try non-tail holding methods, but these antics have lead to some nasty accidents.

Bwaha! You need to set up a camera to capture such moments.

ACK! I would D.I.E.

That is just hilarious. I still don't think it would compare to the green furry spaghetti I found (uncontained!) in my bachelor brother's fridge.

I am soooo glad our lab works mostly with bacteria and the products of their expression.

That's not so bad... at least they were frozen. Now, the time we opened our freezer and didn't know the damn thing had quit probably three months before, THAT was bad. I've never been around a dead body that wasn't embalmed and well maintained, but I'm guessing all that rotten meat came close to decomp. Nasty. Just nasty.
