Actually Dan S. is not a redneck, but he emailed this:
This is the best mousetrap I have ever seen, 5 gal bucket with a gal of RV antifreeze dumped in the bottom, plastic bottle with a coat hanger thru it and some peanut butter on the middle of the bottle. Lean a board up against the side and it works all year without checking it and no smell.
I love rednecks, they are the most ingenious group of people I have ever seen.
My response to Dan:
Awesome, except it’ll do the same to other small animals. Needs a sign that says “No Cats, Birds, Possums, Squirrels, or Raccoon Kits Allowed.” Also soaking the carcases in anti-freeze makes them inedible…
Great solutions to common problems, occasionally posted here on
The Overnight Open Thead.
