    A tourist walked into a curio shop in San Francisco. Looking around at the
    exotics, he noticed a very lifelike, life-sized bronze statue of a rat. It
    had no price tag, but it was so striking he decided he must have it.

    He asked the owner, "How much for the bronze rat?"

    "Twelve dollars for the rat. One hundred dollars for the story," said the

    The tourist gave the man twelve dollars. "I'll take the rat. You can keep
    the story."

    As he walked down the street carrying his bronze rat, he noticed that a
    few real rats had crawled out of the alleys and sewers and they were following
    him down the street. This was disconcerting.

    He began trotting. Within a couple of blocks, the herd of rats had grown
    to hundreds, and they were squealing.

    He ran toward the bay. He looked around and saw that the rats now
    numbered in the MILLIONS, they were squealing loudly, and they were coming toward
    him fast.

    Scared, he ran to the edge of the bay and threw the bronze rat as far out
    into the bay as he could.

    Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the bay after it, and they
    all drowned.

    The man walked back to the curio shop. "Aha," said the owner, "you have
    come back for the story?"...

    "No," said the man. "I came back to see if you have a bronze Ted Jaracz"

    ooooh I love it. But Ted J has brass balls so don't know if it would work

    Brass can be melted if you use the right amount of heat.
