    Illegal gambling operation busted in SE Iowa

    Can't believe this was going on under our noses all this time. I had no idea this kind of nefarious activity could occur in small town Iowa. Scary.

    That's beautiful. Mouse racers have been persecuted for hundreds of years, it's sad really.

    Well shut my mouth, it's also illegal to put squirrels down your pants for the purposes of gambling.

    Why would anyone race mice?

    I strictly race voles which are much faster as their relatively shorter tail causes less wind resistance as compared to mice.

    So how many of the drunken losers huddled around a freaking mouse racing track in a crap hole bar in backwards *** southeast Iowa were Hawkeye fans?

    I'll go with: ALL OF THEM.

    The gambling part of it. Gambling is only legal in Iowa if the government gets a cut of it.

    Re: Illegal gambling operation busted in SE Iowa

    I'm very glad to see that tax dollars are being used to shut down mouse racing. Can't think of a better use for our law enforcement personnel.

    A law's a law. I hope these filthy mouse racers get hung and Governor Branstad personally takes a **** on their corpses. Anything less would be a miscarriage of justice.

    Nobody gets beyond the pool table if drinking a beer, so if a mouse can jump out of there (race track) go run and drop a turd in his beer he's doing something
    Boom. No turds, no problems!
