    > He took it to the old shop owner and asked, "How much
    > for the bronze rat?" "Ahhh, you have chosen wisely!
    > It is $12 for the rat, one hundred dollars for the
    > story," said the wise old Chinaman.
    > The tourist quickly pulled out twelve dollars."Screw
    > that! I'll just take the rat, you can keep the story."

    > the tourist noticed that a few real rats had crawled
    > out of the alleys and sewers and had begun following
    > him down the street. This was a bit disconcerting so
