The Bronze Age (joke)
A tourist walked into a Chinese curio shop in San
Francisco. While looking around at the exotic
merchandise, he noticed a very lifelike,life-sized,
bronze statue of a rat. It had no price tag, but was
so incredibly striking the tourist decided he must
have it.

He took it to the old shop owner and asked, "How much
for the bronze rat?"

"Ahhh, you have chosen wisely! It is $12 for the rat,
$100 for the story," said the wise old Chinaman.

The tourist quickly pulled out twelve dollars. "I'll
just take the rat,you can keep the story".

As he walked down the street carrying his bronze rat,
the tourist noticed that a few real rats had crawled
out of the alleys and sewers and had begun following
him down the street. This was a bit disconcerting so
he began walking faster. A couple blocks later he
looked behind him and saw to his horror the herd of
rats behind him had grown to hundreds, and they
began squealing. Sweating now, the tourist began to
trot toward the Bay.

Again, after a couple blocks, he looked around only
to discover that the rats now numbered in the
MILLIONS, and were squealing and coming toward
him faster and faster.

Terrified, he ran to the edge of the Bay and threw
the bronze rat as far as he could into the Bay.
Amazingly, the millions of rats all jumped into the
Bay after the bronze rat, and were all drowned.

The man walked back to the curio shop in Chinatown.

"Ahhh," said the owner, "You have come back for

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