    That’s sadly funny. Good thing there’s no human analogue…

    I’m guessing it’s not a coincidence that the skeptic mouse is on the right of the panels. If the mouse was like Trump and his fellow environmental criminals it’s last words would have been, “F***k the children”.

    There were real experiments testing this theory done with rats and mice starting in the 1950s by John Calhoun.

    “What does utopia look like for mice? According to a researcher who did most of his work in the 1950s through 1970s, it might include limitless food (of course!), multiple levels and secluded little rodent condos. These were all part of John Calhoun’s experiments to study the effects of population density on behavior. But what looked like rat utopias and mouse paradises at first quickly spiraled into out-of-control overcrowding, eventual population collapse and seemingly sinister behavior patterns.

    The mice were not nice."

    Too bad Brass Orchidectomy isn’t still around to explain why the scientists are wrong.

    Quote from the movie “Moon Struck.” Don’t shit where you eat." Will we end up like the rodents and the reindeer?

    What I’ve seen happen with crowded mouse populations is that eventually the population stops growing once it reaches a certain density because the adults start eating the babies. Problem solved! Jonathan Swift was right!

    Maybe Easter Island gives us a look at the possibilities.
