Anti-burglar Door Mat 10

A pest control company in Japan has come up with a way to catch human rats, an Anti-burglar door mat. The mat is basically a giant adhesive trap that weighs a respectable, but hardly immovable, 8kg. Still the company says the mat is effective, claiming that it has proved itself during a recent break-in at a restaurant already. The mat will become available in Japan starting this fall and is promised to be more humane than the companies last invention, The Poison Cookie Burglar Feeding Station.

  • Chuck a bottle of this over it - and all the stickiness is gone. I suppose that that assume that you spot the mat for what it is first.

    What happens if they fall face first on that mat? Help! I fell, and can't get up. Oh wait! I can't breath either! I also get the picture of a poor dead mouse with wide bulging eyes, and body stuck in a awkward position .... now replace the mouse with a human.
