    Looks like RAT’S back to normal today!!!! Yay!!!! Dan aka…ps Rat’s attitude yesterday indicates the same attitude from Greg house, Md when house’s dad died at the beginning of season 5(five)!!!! Could Stephan pastis be using both Oscar the grouch and house as examples of how to write Rat?! Some lawyer needs to get on a copyright lawsuit from fox and CTW, STAT!!!!

    Rat will have Goat in court on charges of religious intolerance before Goat can say bah.

    Rain, in my opinion, ruins a lot of things. Including the ambience of the house.

    That’s not moaning. That’s catharsis. And it’s fine, it’s a human need to express your feelings, voice your concerns, and share your thoughts. Do it! Open up! Let it go! But not around me… go someplace else… :D

    The irony is that Rat seems to moan and complain more than any of the other characters.

    Usually, Goat has a nice cup of tea to help him face his issues. He should know Rat well enough to know that he will not be sympathetic.

    If he thinks that’s bad, he could be gentle Pig. Pigetta has fallen off a roof and is being visited by Auntie Flo.

    Every morning, during breakfast,at Old Geek Manor, the TV is on with the local news. On the news program, every Friday was “Woohoo Friday”. Every Wednesday was “Hump day Wednesday”.

    One Wednesday morning it was overheard Mrs Old Geek, very irritated, saying

    “Why do they have to call it Hump day?’”

    “Well, on Wednesday you are supposed to…”

    “SHUT UP!”

    “Really, with the itinerary, I would think it would be ‘Woohoo Wednesday.’”

    “It’s just another Manic Monday

    I wish it were Sunday,

    That’s my fun day.

    My ‘I-don’t-have-to-run’ day,

    It’s just another Manic Monday."

    If you can’t moan on Monday, when can you? The later in the week the less point there is to it.
