Trivia: According to legend, the Pied Piper practiced what now-obsolete job?
Correct Answer: Rat catcher
So why is this answer correct? : Beginning in medieval times, towns with rat infestations would hire rat catchers to get their rodent problem under control. Though rat catchers were primarily replaced by more generalized pest-control workers in the early 20th century, their legacy lives on in the tale of the Pied Piper, a rat catcher who kidnapped all the children in a German town after the villagers refused to pay him for his services.
