The real rat problem in Chicago: Scary signs
Is it just me or has anyone else noticed how comically horrifying Chicago’s rat signs are?
The city of Chicago makes them out to be disease-spreading creatures from hell. Just look at those signs plastered all over every alley —>
Red eyes, sharp fangs, and razor claws, they make it look like every rat in Chicago is a rabid portal of Black Death ready to start the Bubonic Plague: Part II.
These signs are pretty badass, but it would be even more awesome if rats in Chicago actually looked like that. When I’m walking by these signs in a dark alley, I get my hopes up when I hear some rustling in a dumpster. Is this the night I have an epic duel with the giant, overly-aggressive rat from the picture?
But unfortunately, it’s not like that… Every time I see a rat, I am sorely disappointed as all I see is a ball of fur scurrying into a bush. Never has a rat growled at me with glowing red eyes. And never did I have to battle it to death to help Chicago ‘eliminate the rat problem.’
Can we modify these signs to a more accurate drawing of a rat? Or can we release some radioactive rats to bring some truth to these signs? Because every time I see a rat they look more like this –>
It’s very disappointing.
These signs are too contradictory. Are rats the aggressive, rabid creatures from hell? Or are they just little fuzzy nocturnal rodents that eat dog poop while we’re asleep?
