#100WW — Litterbugs

26D80028-5B7E-44FF-8F71-7563F0762FF9“Thank God for the literate,” the mouse said.

“The literate?” the other mouse questioned. “You know we can’t read.”

“Literate humans are those who litter,” the first mouse responded. “Were it not for the literate, we might starve to death.”

“I think you mean litterbugs,” she said.

“Whatever!” declared the first mouse. “Time to feast on whatever’s in that cup.”

“Be careful,” the second mouse said. “It might be a trap.”

“Stop being paranoid,” the first mouse said, and ran over to the cup.

The garbage truck pulled up to the curb and crushed both the cup and the mouse.

      Not stuck. He was just focused on whatever it was that was in the Starbucks cup. He never saw it coming.
