Friday Flash Fiction: "Division of Labour"

Yes, I know those are rats in the picture, not gerbils. Have you ever tried to find a Creative Commons-licensed photo of two gerbils?

And yes, I could have just changed them to rats in the story, but gerbils seem more exotic. It's the name, I suppose. GERBIL. JURR-BULL. Strange burrowing creatures from Pandora. Or Arrakis. Yeah, that's the ticket!

I really should go to sleep now.

Thanks! I'll remember that in the future. Google Image Search doesn't work quite as well as one would hope with certain advanced options.

Of course, it's still a pain to double-check the results, because some Flickr users don't license their photos correctly (e.g., labeling things with CC which are clearly copyrighted by others).
