It's World Rat Day, so... hurray for The Rat, I guess...!! Today marks the sixth celebration of this event and I think the above slogan chosen for the campaign is simply priceless. Unfortunately, I now have the song We Are The World looping around in my head and I am valiantly trying to push back Ben...is it MJ Day too!?!
April 4th has been set aside by enthusiasts of the genus Rattus, who hope to dispel some common misconceptions about their furry little friends; ie that they are dirty, disease-ridden and unsuitable as pets, when in fact they are very gentle creatures, rarely bite, quite affectionate and intelligent. So in an effort to do my bit for the poor maligned rodent, here are 4 amusing oddities:
Rats have no gallbladder, but
they have a bellybutton.
They can't vomit, but
laugh with a high chirping sound when amused.
