The Holidays Are For Cozy Family Times


Maybe after dinner the whole family can skitter into a nice homey crawlspace or into the hollow wall of a deliciously rank-smelling deli.

Wherever they are, they must not forget to hang up their tiny rat stockings. Santa carries a teeny bag of toys on his sleigh just for them.

    Nothing says "Merry Christmas" like a mother rat nursing her young.

    Or, have they attacked her and started to eat her alive?

    Carin, does your mom have one of those books about the "Gentleman of Leisure" too?

    Futuresis, geez. There you go splitting hairs again. BOTH of those scenarios are Christmasy!

    Candy, I'm starting to understand why your old desk contained a Saddam Hussein bath mat and a plastic eggplant inside a leopard-print box. What other treasures are you hiding in your pants...er, I mean, uh, house?

    Yes, Jackie, it makes sense now, doesn't it? By the way, I still the bathmat, but the marble eggplant in the animal print box went with Planbreaker. It likes the big city.

    Futuresis is onto something...

    They haven't attacked her, she has laid down her life willingly so that her children may live!

    The true message of Christmas, sacrificial love.

    Oh Candy (and Futuresis) you are a GENIUS!

    Why oh why aren't you operating the Museum of Kitch and Loathing?

    Up here in the Bronx, the rats just look up from devouring their young and say, "Ehh, howa ya doin?" So everyone gets along just fine and nobody gets hurt too much.

    Ana...I don't operate it because I live in it.

    Tony...I envy you being in NYC at Christmas. Even with maybe more rats than people.

    Candy - I remember seeing your rat babies years ago when dining at your house - but I thought they were different - plastic but more realistic/halloween-ish/scary?!? Could it be that you have more rat mother and babies in your collection?

    MLE...THAT was no rat, that was my former husband! Oh. I guess it WAS a rat.

    Yes. I had other rat families that were actually furry and more realistic looking. I finally parted with them. It was a somber day.
