Rat pulls fire alarm, forces US building evacuation -The Asian Age

Every once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, the Internet gives you a video that is sure to make your day, week and month better.

Sunday was one such day, when NBC Washington managed to acquire security footage of a moment that is sure to go down as legendary in rodent history - the footage of a rascally rat pulling a fire alarm that forced the evacuation of a whole building in Washington DC.

The video shows the large rat climbing up a metal rail and then leaping onto the fire alarm mounted on the wall, pulling down its lever and setting off the alarm.
