Deviled Mice

8 eggs
4 1/2 tablespoons mayonnaise
6 large letuce leaves
16 pimento stuffed olives
1 tablespoon chocolate sprinkles

 Hard boil the eggs.
 Gently crack the eggs against a hard surface, 
then carefully peel off the shells. Slice each 
egg in half lengthwise. Scoop out the yolks 
and put them in a small bowl.
 Mash the yolks with a fork until they are crumbly. 
Add mayonnaise and blend.Carefully fill the empty 
egg whites with yolk mixture.
 Cover a platter with lettuce leaves, setting a leaf 
or two aside for garnish. Arrange the egg halves,yolk 
side down, on the leaves. These are your mice
bodies.
To give them each eyes and a nose, pull the pimento 
out of an olive and cut it into three small pieces.
 Cut thirty two thin, lengthwise strips from several 
of the green olives. Stick two of these strips end 
to end onto the back end of the mouse to form the tail.
Out of the remaining olives, cut thirty two small
triangular ear pieces. 
 To garnish: Tear small pieces of lettuce and position
in front of the mice's mouths. As a final touch, heap a 
pile of mouse droppings (chocolate sprinkles) on the 
platter to re-create an authentically tidy mouse 
toilette.
