    A tourist walks into a curio shop in San Francisco. Looking around at
    everything, he notices a very lifelike life-sized bronze statue of a rat.
    It has no price tag, but is so striking that he decides he must have it.
    He takes it to the owner and asks, "How much for the bronze rat?"
    The owner replies, "$12 for the rat and $100 for the story". The tourist
    gives the man $12 and says, "I'll just take the rat, you can keep the
    story."

    As he walks down the street carrying his bronze rat, he notices that a
    few real rats have crawled out of the alleys and sewers and begun
    following him down the street. This is disconcerting, and he begins
    walking faster. But within a couple of blocks, the herd of rats behind
    him has grown to hundreds, and they begin squealing. He begins to trot
    toward the Bay, looking around to see that the rats now number in the
    MILLIONS, and are squealing and coming toward him faster and faster.

    Concerned, even scared, he runs to the edge of the Bay, and throws the
    bronze rat as far out into the water as he can. Amazingly, the millions
    of rats all jump into the Bay after it, and are all drowned.

    The man walks back to the curio shop.

    "Ah ha," says the owner, "you have come back for the story?"

    "No," says the man, "I came back to see if you have a bronze Democrat, a
    bronze Muslim cleric & anything French."
