Mostly, I feel bad for the rat.



It's not too often I publicly want to call somebody a "dingus," but hey, check out this dingus. Christopher Baker of Sunderland, UK, went out to eat at the Borneo Bistro. He paid for his bill, then released a rat from his pocket, as seen on the video above, and reportedly demanded his money back because the restaurant had rats. The restaurant owner figured out something was fishy (well, ratty) when he called pest control, and they noticed that the rat had recently had a haircut. I really, really hope it had a flattop. Then the restaurant owner looked at the closed-circuit TV and saw Baker taking the rat out of his pocket.

Baker pled guilty to fraud. The video and article don't say whether or not the rat was returned to the dingus, but I hope they found a better owner for the little fella.
