Mousehole is a small picturesque fishing village on the coast of Cornwall. It is known for its narrow lanes, and historic charms. In 1595 Mousehole was destroyed in a raid led by Spaniard Carlos de Amesquita, in one of only two attacks on England by the Spanish. The entire village was burnt to the ground, except for the local pub. It still stands today.
In the 70’s Mousehole was also the home of a family of mus musculus living behind a skirting board in an old Eden Terrace villa. The family home was a bed of toasty warm newspaper shreds. No doubt it would have been warmer than the homosapien’s habitat who were also living there at the time.
Today, Mousehole has long since been abandoned. It is unknown whether the Eden Terrace family left any survivors.
On the weekend the paper enclave was destroyed by the local developers residing there.
Prior to tearing out the home, they conducted a brief half hour investigation, and deduced that the housing was primarily constructed from 70’s newspaper and bus tickets. They also noted that it was nested in a bed of live wiring, and declared the home a safety hazard.
The developers have since drafted legislation, and taken measures to ensure no other such homes exist in the villa.
