Monday Madness XXVIII

Welcome to the weekly feature Monday Madness at AoftheA, where the odd and obscure are dragged from the dark into the light of day. Sorry about that!

From the Telegraph.co.uk: Farmer Who Killed 83,000 Rats Awarded Prize

A Bangladeshi farmer who killed 83,000 rats has been awarded a prize by his Government.

Mokhairul Islam, 40, won a first prize of a colour television for killing some 83,450 rats in the past nine months in Gazipur district near the South Asian country's capital, Dhaka. He collected their tails for proof.

"I am so happy to get this honour," he said after receiving a 14-inch television and a certificate amid cheers at an official ceremony packed with 500 farmers and officials. "I had no idea that the government gives prizes for this."

"This is an exciting moment. I will continue to kill them," he vowed.

Hey, great prize! Now all he needs is electrical service. How many rats will he have to kill to win that?
