    Rat chooses to find the person(s) responsible for making him unhappy. I admire his determination.

    Is Goat going to tell people in Ukraine that happiness is a choice?

    Goat is wrong, of course; only the extremely simpleminded can “choose” to be happy. They’re usually the ones who make unhappy people feel even worse by saying stupid things like, “Oh, why don’t you just be happy?”

    Rat’s problem is that it’s never RAT’S problem… so he cannot possibly figure out how to solve it.

    My choice is to be happy, my brother’s is to be on the ten most wanted list.

    Well Rat, we could begin with Congress. They promised us happiness and security. Instead, they have focused on their own happiness, and financial and job security.

    Being depressed but then being told to just choose to be happy comes off as patronising and insulting.

    I’m making a choice to find someone special and that would make me happy. But alas, the woman of my dreams doesn’t exist. Another thing that would make me happy is to become the black Jim Henson, but so far, it ain’t happening.

    The Declaration of Independence says that we should be guaranteed the pursuit of happiness. That doesn’t mean we will be able to catch it. You really can’t make someone else happy if they don’t want to be. From the looks of things, there are those who like being unhappy and making those around the same.

    Since there is a bluebird of happiness, what color is the bird of unhappiness?

    The answer is, you make that choice. At least that is what some people say

    Rat has an aggressive one-track mind. Give up a name, Goat, or you may get a kick out of this!

    In order to be happy tomorrow, you must first learn to be happy today. And if you are truly happy with yourself, you would not need anyone else’s acceptance but your own.

    I think I would be happier if I could kick some people’s rears.

    Then again, we’d all look pretty silly, standing around kicking each other in the patootie.
