Target Mouse!

Mouse Traps in TargetSo I was in my friendly neighborhood Target store this afternoon and, while Melissa was looking to buy things and I was just looking around awkwardly, I happened to spy these d-Con mouse traps on a shelf.

I’m not sure if these mouse traps were placed there by a prankster, or if the Reston Target has indeed had a mouse problem on the third shelf of the picture frame aisle. Either way, I thought it was pretty funny.

As I mentioned to Melissa, it’s possible they’re trying to replace ‘Target Dog‘ with a new ‘Target Mouse’ . . . though, after going through a d-Con trap, it would probably be more like ‘Target Mouse Carcass’. With that kind of branding, you can’t lose!
