Rats In Search Of A Buzz

I don't know whether to believe this or not, but a former neighbor from up Spy Rock way tells me it's been next to impossible to keep his phone (landline variety, remember those?) working of late because the local rats (four-legged variety) have developed a habit of chewing through the cables. Why? They get a kick, he swears, out of biting into the low-voltage electric charge. These are, it should be noted, the same rats widely believed to be responsible for gnawing away at the trunks - and thereby killing - the marijuana plants which form the cornerstone (not to mention the foundation, walls, floor and ceiling) of the regional economy.
