Dedicated to the ultimate neighbour, Mister Rogers, who would have turned 80 today. And also to Suzi for letting me know that today is Won’t You Wear A Sweater Day.

Darn those beat box rats!
That is just too funny!
I actually lived in that same apartment building for about a year, I think. I was on the verge of homicidal rage some nights.
Maybe I’m weird, but I just can’t figure out how a mouse could afford a boombox. Besides, everyone knows that rich mice prefer TV.
Hmmm…I wonder if that’s the same mouse that ran the vacuum this morning at 4am.
One day a virus will rid the world of all asshole neighbours. That should leave about 12 of us on the face of the earth.
Rrrrgh! Those rats must live all over my apartment complex. I so wish I could have neighbors like Mr. Rogers…
Just like your apartment next to the dumpster over the Thai Restaurant. Those rats tasted like curry. Didn’t you hate it when they made nests out of hidden porn mags?
today’s and yesterday’s chickens are gold… of course all of them are….
Man, that explains soooo much! 🙂
I am having this exact problem. Unfortunately, the rats next door are exceedingly large and muscular and favor a lot of bass.
I had to laugh when I saw this because years ago, when I lived in NYC, I had a bunch of noisy frat-boy party animals downstairs, and, finally, in desperation, I ripped up a few floorboards and installed a big-ass speaker pointing down at their sheet-rock ceiling and hooked it up to the B-channel on my stereo. Then, any time they got loud at, like, 2am, I would just put on, like, a Polish radio station full blast for about 15 minutes and they’d settle down in a hurry!
Thanks for the idea, Hippie Zingo – I am definitely going to try that. Just have to find a nearby Polish radio station…
(I have the mexican music downstairs!)
