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.
