Rats exonerated in spread of Black Death, gerbils implicated
Halibutboy Flatfish stashed this in Gross!
I don't even know what gerbils are, but you should know that good old Ratus Ratus got a bad rap. He's innocent!
"I don't even know what gerbils are" == protesting too much. :)
A gerbil is just another rodent. The difference between them and rats is minimal, right?
If you discount the urban legends.
I'm going to choose not to think about that.
Oh, I think I get gerbils mixed up with guinea pigs...
