Rat Gets Into ATM, Builds Nest Out of $18,000

Gotta save up for a nest egg!

Let’s say you’re a rat. A cute little cold rat, and buddy, you just got to build yourself a nice warm nest! And what does eighteen thousand dollars mean to your little rat face? It’s not anything important like cheese or anything! You’ve got to keep warm, baby!

A rat in Guwahati, India crawled into the ATM and destroyed eighteen thousand dollars worth of rupee notes ($18,000 folks) in order to make itself a little nest. The ATM was knocked out for days as technicians attempted to figure out what was keeping their money from coming to them! And folks, someone call up the human embodiment of the movie version of The Departed… because I’ve got bad news for this rat. Like a tiny little Scarface, when workers opened up the ATM, the rat was dead, folks, surrounded by thousands of dollars.

Here’s a video. Warning… it’s uh.. it’s got a dead rat in it.

Chandan Sharma, SBI branch manager said: “We have started an investigation into this rare incident and will take measures to prevent a recurrence.”, as if one manager can stop greed so toxic it causes the poor little animal to perish in its own expensive home. makes you think, am I right fellow fighters of greed and corruption?

Does this ATM rat — a tragedy — join the fold in our viral rat round up as the sad Italian opera style third act? Gang. Being a rat seems very hard. You eat pizza  once and everyone loves you, then you eat everyone’s money, and they turn on you. What a mess.

Anyway, what do you think? Is this rat good and hungry? Or bad and chewy? Let us know in the comments or on Twitter at @WhatsTrending.
