IT WAS ONLY A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL THEY EVOLVED ORTHODONTURE:

Mouse 3, Man 0: 'That little stinker stole my teeth' (Chicago Sun-Times, March 25, 2007)

Never underestimate a mouse's determination.

There's a mouse in Bill Exner's house that he says he has captured three times. Each time, the mouse escaped, and the last time the rodent made off with his lower dentures.

Exner, 68, said he and his wife, Shirley, scoured his bedroom after the dentures disappeared from his night stand.

''We moved the bed, moved the dressers and the night stand and tore the closet apart,'' he said. ''I said, 'I knew that little stinker stole my teeth' -- I just knew it.''

Is it my imagination or are mice getting smarter? Somehow it was easier to catch them 20 years ago. They seem to have evolved an ability not to stick to glue traps.
