Abandoned cruise ship filled with cannibal rats headed for British shore
The Lyubov Orlova has been detected off the coast of Scotland. Its only passengers are demented, disease-ridden rats feeding off each other.
An abandoned cruise liner teeming with inbred cannibal rats is adrift in the Atlantic Ocean and possibly about to run aground on Britains coastline, according to a new report.
The Lyubov Orlova has been drifting east from Canadian waters since last year.
Newly detected beacons off the dilapidated vessels rescue boats indicate it is was recently off the west coast of Scotland, raising concerns it could run ashore there, along the west coast of Ireland or the southern tip of England, according to The Sun.
Salvage hunters are keen to find the dilapidated 300-foot ghost ship that can carry 110 passengers because it is estimated to be worth nearly $1 million.
But once aboard, the scrappers will face unimaginable horror: a demented, disease-ridden population of rats that have been feeding on each other and breeding.
"There will be a lot of rats, and they eat each other, Belgian-based salvage hunter Pim de Rhoodes told the tabloid. If I get aboard, I'll have to lace everywhere with poison."
The ship was built in 1976 and primarily toured Antarctic waters. It was abandoned in a Canadian harbor in Sept. 2010 by its indebted owners.
In January of last year it was sold to the Dominican Republic for scrap, but the tow line broke while en route. After harnessing the ship again, the Canadian government elected to cut it loose in international waters, saying it posed no threat to other vessels or offshore oil drilling platforms.

Why can’t they just bomb it and sink it?
28 days later and we’ll know if it made it.
Why not use it for some RN target practice?
Owner should have a quick auction to see which navy would pay to use it for target practice?
Metaphor for Obamacare.
Because it is worth a million bucks for salvage.
They should tow it off the coast of Somalia. Let the pirates try to board it only to find hoards of diseased rats.
Well, sure they have demented, disease-ridden cannibal rats on board, but what about the buffet? A good buffet can make up for a lot of problems. You get a good mac and cheese, and those rats seem more like friendly hamsters.
Been done in print (1937) and audio (1949+).
Lighthouses are automated now, but Vincent Price really brought the horror to life in the Escape 1950 version.
That would be too cruel. Too cruel to the rats.
“I love the fine dining on these cruise ships. Look at this.....real silver.”
“Good evening. My name is Ramon. I will be your server.”
“Great, Ramon! What’s the special?”
“Roasted demented rat in a tangy horseradish sauce with fresh baby red potatoes and a vegetable medley.”
“Roasted demented rat?”
“Yes sir. With fresh baby red potatoes.”
“Are they free range rats?”
“Well, they are quite well travelled.”
“And I can have seconds....no problem?”
“That is our policy.”
“OK....I’ll have the roasted demented rat. And keep bringing them out until I have to unbutton my pants.”
>> a demented, disease-ridden population of rats
Enough already about our Senate! Tell me more about this derelict cruise ship...
Barack and Moochelle could have their second “HoneyMoon”????
