Ghost ship packed with cannibal rats lost at sea

In a scenario that should become a movie, a “ghost ship” packed with “cannibal rats” is lost at sea and may soon crash into Britain’s shore.

The Independent reports a Russian cruise liner, the “Lyubov Orlova,” has been drifting in the North Atlantic for several months and, despite satellite technology, no one can seem to find it.

Experts say it is likely headed to England and likely full of rats that have been eating each other to stay alive. A competent movie director will also have these rats mutating near a nuclear reactor and developing some form of disease and perhaps superpowers.

Built in 1976, the massive ship was abandoned in Canada after its owner was unable to pay its crew. The ship was sold as scrap but was lost in a storm while being towed to  the Dominican Republic.

Unfortunately for those who have nightmares, ghost ships packed with cannibals rats are fairly common.

Canada says since the ship is no longer in Canadian waters it’s not their problem.

The head of the Irish coastguard said, “There have been huge storms in recent months but it takes a lot to sink a vessel as big as that. We must stay vigilant.”

Let’s hope Danny Boyle, British director of “28 Days Later,” is also watching.

Please please please let it veer off its current course and hit Washington DC

You can’t find something if you’re not looking for it. They “can’t find it” because they’re busy watching US. (All completely legal, according to 0bama Der Fuhrer.)

Dennis Rodman should stay in N. Korea since he seems to like them so much.

I heard a rumor that it is filled with cons. They need a captain. Don’t Tread, are you interested?

Well, when the rats are done eating everything else, what else is there to feed on?

Is there a time when the rats are so inbred and malnourished that they no longer are able to breed? That’s what I want to know! The ship gets hit by an arctic vortex, and the rats still survive?

I wonder if those rats can swim. I hear some rats can swim. The plot thickens.

“It is likely … full of rats that have been eating each other to stay alive.”

Sounds like a session of Congress to me.

Sorry Joe, but even if the ship should veer off course, and beach on the shores of the Potomac, it would serve no purpose to rid DC of the humanoid rats that there infest…

Just as a shark in the sea will not eat a lawyer,

Just as one CEO will not oppose a bonus to another CEO for firing the masses,

Just as Jackson, Sharpton, and et al, will not call out opportunistic prostitutes,

They all share one common philosophy,

Now, a serious question:

How can the headline state the ship “approaches shore” when the article clearly states “despite satellite technology, no one can seem to find it.”

AJC Editors: What gives? How the devil do you “know” it is approaching shore?

Or,

Is the headline just another sensational, fear mongering lie designed to stir up to the masses with less that stellar reading comprehension skills?

I doubt you people read the stuff you post or print, but it would serve you well to start.

These are cousins of the BOLD Rats that can be found and seen from the Passenger Platform at the (5_ Five Points Marta Train Station in Atlanta. There is an entire Village of them that No longer fear the presence of Humans. Many now will Speak if acknowledged. :)

Read the story…it’s filled with rats. Therefore, a DemocRAT should be the captain.

I’m already captain of another vessel that I can locate and it runs just fine, thanks.

Every week a new study comes out showing the tremendous benefits of Vitamin D. Not just in bone issues, but low levels are shown to be associated with higher rates of cancer, heart disease, and hundreds of other diseases. Extremely low levels are at epidemic levels in this country. If you are dark skinned and live north of Atlanta’s latitude, you make zero vitamin D during the winter no matter how long you sit out in the sun. It is critical for the medical industry in this country to maintain high disease and sickness levels to insure their profits. They are fighting a losing battle against people who are discovering that good nutrition, supplements of things like Vitamin D and others are the REAL key to health – not pills from the pharmaceutical industry. They are lying through their teeth to keep hold of their profits. Do your own research and don’t believe the lies. They need to have you be sick.

Anything set adrift in the ocean has to be approaching SOME shore, right? The chances of it remaining in the same exact spot are zero.

Bring it to the US and load it full of Death Row inmates or Illegals and send it back out to sea.

If you’re going to load illegals, you’re going to need a much bigger ship. Somehow I don’t think it will even hold all the death row inmates. (Why do we continue to feed and house these people? Fast track their “appeals”, which are largely delaying tactics and the legal equivalent of garbage anyway, then get rid of them quickly. Problem solved.)

So, if they find it, what will happen to it? Finders keepers? Finders wanters, even? Returned to Russia? Returned to the scrappers in Canada? I predict it’s at the bottom of the ocean.

For the right price I’ll sell my two rodent killin/eatin cats for airlift onto the ship, and the rats will be gone within days. At that point I guess the cats would cannibalize each other.

A perfect example of what is happening right now. A fine business owner (rich guy providing jobs) was no doubt interfered with by some overzealous government (big government) successfully over-regulating (EPA whacko’s) him right out of business. The crew (Hard working middle class getting stuck with everybody’s bill) is left without back pay or a job. The boat is sold, but before it can be scrapped in the DR (sweatshop pay scale workers), Mother Nature steps in and claims it in a storm (EPA whacko’s claim it was global warming, reality is the tow ropes were too small) Now it’s adrift with an army of rats (parasitic foodstamp munchers). Without the owner to buy food for the crew to put on the shelves, and no government to depend on, the rats turn on each other. Moral of the story is unless someone sinks that ship full of rats, taxpayers better learn to defend their homes.

And when the final rat on the ship dies, the roaches will eat the rats.

“25% of Americans didn’t real a book last year” is hardly surprising considering probably 45% of Americans can’t read well enough to complete a book thanks to our worthless government-run education system.

This is a very entertaining myth. I comes from a short story published in Esquire in 1937 called “Three Skeleton Key”. It was very popular in the US on two radio shows called “Escape” and “Suspense” in the 1950’s. It starred Vincent Price.
