Sour Grapes and HUGE, DISEASE-RIDDEN RATS!!!

Pretty, but watch your toes for the nibblin' foes.

Boston.com is running a tragic little feature about what graduating college students are going to miss about the beloved city when they abandon it this summer. Now, I fully admit that I miss Boston like mental when I’m here in lovely Britain, but some of the answers on the website make me wonder if these kids ever once ventured off campus in the four years they’d been there. My favorite response is a glowing tribute to the Christian Science Center Reflecting Pool. Granted, it is a lovely place in photos, but anyone who has spent more than five minutes there knows it’s infested with more rats, mice, and mosquitoes (not to mention crazy homeless people) than your average medieval village. Why don’t we all just contract the plague while we’re at it along with a healthy dose of leprosy, get rid of the sewer system, and dump our poo into the streets? Add a few drunken chants of “Yankees suck!” and now we’re really in Boston!
