July 22 is...

July 22 is National rat catcher's day
This reminds me of a book I read as a kid called 'A poacher's tale'.
One of the anecdotes involved someone who was paid by the council for rats he killed, and they only took the tails in exchange for payment.
He would then meet someone around the back and buy back for cheap some of the tails to mix into his next batch. Too many do-overs would result in suspicion from rotten tails, so he had to be careful to keep his ruse working over time!
