A new discovery by students at Bristol University apparently shows that modern mice are ditching their traditional ways and becoming painfully trendy. They claim in the mouse world shiney gadgets such as iPods, Nintendo DS and mobile phones are hot, and cheese is not.
Scientists have spent decades watching mice go through mazes or endure rigorous product testing in order to get a chunk of chedder, but they've noticed that in recent years the mice seemed alot more lack luster.
After trying different foods including Terry's chocolate orange, and sag aloo they were about to give up and start testing on immigrants and gypsies when one student left his phone out and the rodents flocked towards it.
Within seconds the mice had managed to put on Duffy's Warrick Avenue and booked a table for two at trendy london restuarant Le Coq.
Ranjish Brinjal, Head of Science at Bristol University commented "We couldn't believe it, not only were they interested in the phone, but they somehow knew how to operate it. Unfortunetly they put on Duffy and they haven't lived it down since".
"We can now pretty much get them to do anything, we've promised them a copy of Fifa 2010 when it comes out, so prepare to hear about alot more dangerous and bizarre experiments going on in these labratories".
A spokesman for the RSPCA stated the mice "only had themselves to blame".
