    My friend asked me to have a look at his printer yesterday, it was jamming and would not print anything and kept spitting the paper back into the feeder. So I try a couple of test prints, sure enough the paper would start to feed through, jam, then spit back out. I open up the printer to see if there's anything stuck, and at first I couldn't see anything so I tried it again, same thing. I open the printer again, and see a flicker of movement inside it - there was a freaking mouse running around inside it under the scanner light. The bloody thing had built a nest in there.

    What cracked me up was Jon and his buddy Kyle's reaction to this...

    Me: There's a fucking mouse in there!!!!

    Kyle: I don't see a mouse.

    Jon: There is not.

    Me: There fucking is!!

    Jon: Yeah, right. Let me see. (Pushes my chair aside.)

    Jon looks in, doesn't see the mouse - then all of a sudden the mouse scurries out and across the desk. I've never seen two grown men move so fast or screech so loudly. You'd think a fucking great tiger had jumped out at them the way they reacted. I was waiting for them to jump up on chairs and shriek like in the cartoons.

    No the printer is toast from the nest it had made.
    Just to straighten the record, Jon was actually very brave and didn't flinch or scream at all.

    He's so tough and heroic

    I think it was called Jonno knows best or something.

    About a great big shaggy galoot who loves a lassie in Canadia.

    Luckily for him, she decides to love him back.
