City Hall, 10 1st Street NW

MASON CITY – Authorities were called to City Hall to remove a rodent from the Mayor’s office on Wednesday morning, January 23rd.

The previous evening, at least one rodent was spotted at a City Council work session meeting and chased out of the room, but not until at least one person was startled.

Both rodents were allegedly bats.  There was no immediate word on whether any bats, rats, mice, skunks or other rodents had been spotted at City Hall since.

    What’s more newsworthy is the reptile in the White House. What do we read about that? That’s the 800 lb. gorilla in the room.

      Yep, 800 lb gorilla in the white house and don’t forget all the stupid ass voters that put that ape in the white house!

      We live in the dumbest culture in recent times. We are repeating all the mistakes of Rome.

      Oh I forgot, the stupid voters don’t even know what Rome refers to.

      Rome is the society they became so over taxed, so liberal, so lazy, so self indulged, ect. that Rome’s government collapsed.

      America is headed in the very same direction!!!!

    How long did it take them to figure out it was turncoat and anderson. Probably was hard to tell with them both under his desk.

    Well, I logged on and saw the headlines to this story.

    I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants without reading any of the blogs. Then I read the blogs and the laughs continue.

    A good laugh is a great way to end my day down here in Panama City Beach, Florida? Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Rodent or weasel, this was so worth logging on.

    Thanks Matt for a great laugh. Only in TRUTH there is humor!!!

    That’s no ordinary rat, that’s our mayor…King Rat! I was in city hall this week to pay my $100 water bill and I couldn’t tell the difference, after the costly remodel. Waste of our money!

    Bats aren’t rodents.
    Info from National Geographic:
    Myth 5: Bats are rodents.
    Bats are no more related to rodents than humans are. Evolution studies show that bats are more closely related to primates than to rodents

    When I first saw this headline, I thought, Oh, good. The City Council finally impeached Bookmeyer.
