Dining at sea

I thought I'll post it under "Nutrition".
GHOST ship crewed only by CANNIBAL rats feared to be heading for Scottish coast

THE hulk of cruise ship Lyubov Orlova has been adrift in the North Atlantic since 2012 with nothing on board but hungry vermin.
Britain bound? The deserted Lyubov Orlova could be headed for our waters.

A GHOST ship crewed only by CANNIBAL rats is feared to be heading for Britain.

The hulk of cruise ship Lyubov Orlova has been adrift in the North Atlantic for the past year after being cut loose off the coast of Canada.

But now coastguards are reportedly worried the recent storms may have driven her thousands of miles towards our own coastline.

The 300ft vessel, built 40 years ago in the Soviet Union, has nothing aboard but packs of disease-ridden rodents who are forced to prey on one another to survive.

Her current position is unknown despite several high-level searches.

Last year satellites picked up an unidentified blip off Scotland large enough to be the ship — but search planes found nothing.

As well as the authorities, salvage hunters — after the 4,250-ton vessel's £600,000 value as scrap — are scouring the seas for any trace of her.

And they can also 'raise rats feed cats', 'raise cats feed rats', sell skins.

Almost as good as Cheeses of Nazareth business opportunity.

I mean, apart from it being unlikely that a large ship can drift around unnoticed on one of the more densely trafficed oceans for over a year, and apart from it being unlikely that it should stay afloat and free of any shores for that long, since nobody has seen it during all that time, how can anybody know what is going on aboard?

Finally, if such a ship existed, it would no longer be populated with rats, but cockroaches.

I wonder if one of the rats has evolved into a human sort of like the cat guy on red dwarf.
