The Bad Mouse

This is a true story. It is an ethical dilemma that I think a lot of people have experienced. When it has been screened, the audience is divided between those who think it is funny and those who think it is tragic. I'll let you decide for yourself...
However sensitive it is though, two vegans once strongly objected to it being shown because they felt it was offensive:) This was weird though, because it didn't offend my vegan friend that was screening it, or the rest of the audience.

It was pretty good. I felt bad for the mouse... I ask my parents the same kind of question "did it know what it was doing?" when my dad sets mouse traps. (I normaly take the traps and throw them away.) I am a vegan and I didn't see a problem with that, it's not encouraging mouse killing or anything, it's just making people think and surely, there isn't a thing wrong with that. They were probably poser vegans that eat geletin and honey. O:<


Poor lil thing....... great flash though. While the mouse was cute, it wasn't too too cute, and it was portrayed to be too too cute, but in any case besides that, wonderful flash. I feel that way with lil meeces, I hate to kill em, but hey, you can't have em pooin' everywhere. Ew, on your beds? Eck!


Very engaging, made me laugh several times, and actually feel for the mouse at the end. Stop playing with my emotions, dammit!

Hexjibber responds:

Haha, sorry. I am glad it resonated with you. Thanks for the feedback.


i dont know why but when the mouse craped on the first trap it made me laugh yeah other then that it was a good story

I absolutely love your style

Like the reviewer before me said, you do go directly to storytelling. I love the simplicity of your characters and the clarity of your story. The storytelling itself was great too. I added you to my favorite artists (along with Adam Philip - Prowlies at the River and Robbie Robertson - Fallen Angel)
