Vacuum Mouse Trap

A mouse trap made of a cheese vacuum balloon

Make a vacuum balloon out of a very thin layer of self healing cheese. Once the mouse bites into it, POP! It gets sucked in. The mouse is content never to leave since it is in cheese heaven. You then release the balloon, and it leaves your home only so slightly elevated, without you having to worry about it any more. If you live in an appartment on the third floor, it slowly decends to street level.

       There we go again. I'll have to look up how to set the spell checking on, in Firefox. Sory for the funy mistaks, Im not a nativ English spekre.

       (neutral vote) but I want to hear more about this self healing cheese.   

       You know what they say about building a better mouse trap don't you?
They say that eventually you'll attract cat's and that they will inevitably bring fishbones of course.
  

       apart from the total lack of science I like the idea, but the part I like is a pest floating away in a balloon and I'm pretty sure that's redundant.

       //...it slowly decends to street level.//   

       You mean, like: "WHOOOOOSH...SPLAT!!", and the mouse is saying: "But pashute said it would float", on the way down.

       I saw all the impossibilities in the first sentence. Then I saw the impossibility in the last sentence. Then I went back to the impossibilities in the middle. The bit about not worrying is also impossible--if somebody tried this, I'd worry about the space/time continuum.   

       I'd let this pass as an attempt as humor, but I'm not amused by this many impossibilities. [-]

       According to the annotations: a. It cannot be done. b. It won't work.   

       So my conclusion is that I didn't do a good enough search. It's probably baked, and sold in retail by the millions.   

       On the other hand, if it would be baked, the cheese would crack, and the vacuum would be ruined.
