A male sewer rat (above) described as having too much Winterspeck – literally ‘Winter bacon’ – attempts to crawl out of a manhole cover in the German town of Bensheim

Some firefighters slid down their pole
To go free a rat from a hole
It was shocked to learn that
It had gained so much fat
And agreed to learn more self control
