Subject: Mice so do sing!
Security: Public
According to http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/4395664.stm:

"Male mice serenade potential mates with ultrasonic love songs, a study by US scientists has revealed.

The research adds mice to the exclusive club of mammals that can sing, which has until now comprised only human beings, bats and cetaceans."

I'm sure DisneyCo are so chuffed.

... this is proof there is a connection between the singing and the marvelous mouse organs!

Sudden thoughts of Bagpuss slash make me hide in terror

"(sings) We will rub it, we will stroke it
We will cover it in baby oil
We will dom it, we will sub it

It has just struck me that, slowed down, the mice sound *incredibly* like Clangers.
