Year of the Rat?
Yuch. Of all the animals to dominate every twelfth year, why does it have to be the RAT?
I guess it's just one of those things that doesn't ship well to The West. I suggest we change it to the "Year of the Titmouse".
Ooops. Turns out the titmouse isn't a mouse at all - it's a bird! Easy mistake to make. :)
