Here comes the Chinese New Year ... 25 January 2020
... not just any old alley/sewer rat,
but a Yang Metal Rat.

The Year of the Yang Metal Rat

The biggest rat in north america is the beaver who is an architect and landscaper.

That's interesting keberoxu. I realise that rats bring disease and eat our stored food etc. But I've always quite liked their little cheeky ways and resourcefulness, and in your link it says the Chinese feel that way about them too!
While I'm terrified of spiders, I think rodents, especially mice and rats, are sweet little things. I can't understand daft people who jump onto a table when one enters the house (my mother did this, much to my amusement)
Hope the Yang Metal Rat brings us all good fortune in 2020. God knows we're going to need it, as Australia burns and Trump starts WW3 !!

Pardon me for being British and not really understanding all the nuances but: I can think of a bigger rat, a damn (pun intended) nuisance.

The great ginger comb-over.

Yes, Jack Campin and I were
speculating about this on a different thread.

Chinese restaurants serving haggis?

I have a great memory of our dachshunds shaking a mouse out of the curtains and dad, in plain sight of ministers and architects and other important diplomatic guests, *leaping* up onto the coffee table, and immediately back down again and pretending that he hadn't. Everybody adult pretended to have seen. I must have been around 6. Could not understand why only I was dying laughing...

I've just looked up my year and it appears I'm an Ox. Husband is apparently a PIG!!! hee hee

With regard to the same date for Burns night and the Chinese New Year, can one eat a mutton pie with chopsticks? Or enjoy haggis chow mein?
Perhaps I could design myself a tartan cheongsam?

Ah, robomatic,
my childhood memories are irrationally selective.

Why would I block any recall of
memories of metal moon munching mice?
After all, I proudly watched those
Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoons on Saturday television.

And yet, it is as if
I had never ever watched them, as
I have no recollection of
mental moon munching mice ... I must be deficient ...

In my first high class engineering job, we had a real gonzo chief engineer. He was smart, quick, good natured, and went home everyday during lunch to watch Rocky reruns.
But my memory of metal munching moon mice goes back all the way to that wonderful show, Fractured Fairy Tales, Boris and Natasha and Mr. Big, Wassamatta U. Lower Slobbovia, Dudley Do-right and Nell, etcetera etcetera, the mind wanders...what were we talking about?

Rocky&Bullwinkle was the most hopeful time of the week.
Scott Keith was an associate of J Ward and wrote recent very boring book about the production of R&B.

Ah excellent Mrrzy! Selon les Chinois, comme oxen nous sommes honnetes, stables, traditionels et nous perseverons! (C'est a dire tetus!)
Mon époux était étonné d'entendre qu'il est porc!! Et pour un musulman c'est un peu difficile!

I wouldn't mind at all being a rat. After the excesses of Crimbo though, I look more like a blooming elephant...
