It’s raining raining rats on the interwebs as global news outfits shred what’s left of Nigeria’s dignity, courtesy Garba Shehu’s admission that Aso Rock has a rodent infestation. Whether they thought our collective IQ so low, we’d swallow anything they feed us is anyone’s guess.
They sure have made things interesting on social media, as Nigerians ever hungry to make jokes out of anything, jumped on this with aplomb.

An ode to the weaker animals
A Lion King once left his pride
And briefly could no more preside
But when he got back
Alas an attack
Of killer rats kept him outside
