Fun fact: When that clock in Exeter Cathedral was first installed the ropes working the mechanism were greased with animal fat, which attracted a lot of rodents. The problem was so severe that the cathedral not only had cats to catch the rodents, but a cat-sized hole was cut in the wooden door in front of the stairs leading to the mechanism, which can still be seen to this day. This was the inspiration for the nursery rhyme Hickory Dickory Dock. Next time I'm inside the cathedral I'll get a photo of the personalised kitty door.

RoJoHen, that beefcake meme is awesome.
