    • It was probably made for patent trolling. There’s a patent for a shirt with a hamster habitat on it, and the person who made it successfully sued someone for violating that patent.

    • I may be misunderstanding/overthinking this but a good portion of comments say "in case you want more property damage" or "not enough property damage". I have never seen a mouse trap do any sort of property damage. So, how can you have more or not enough when there was none to begin with?
