    It should be a fab year. Rats are clever, and reproduce prodigiously.

    • Yes, they do. People in Asia used to pray to them if they wanted to have children.

        I love the story of how the Rat wound up being the first sign in the Chinese Zodiac.
        The Emperor decreed that the first animal to arrive to the palace, would be the first sign. The rat met the Ox on the way, and talked the Ox into giving him a ride. Then just as the Ox was arriving, apparently the first animal to get there, the rat raced & leapt over the Ox’s head, beating the Ox by inches.
