    Let’s hope there are no air holes in that thing.

    How is Rat even going to get his beer when he’s in a bulletproof carriage? He could get shot when about to grab his drink from the barkeeper or liquor store.

    Now Rat looks like a laboratory rat. Hopefully they don’t do any experiments with him.

    I’d like to have snake, spider, and tick proof armor so I can hike through the worst jungle without problems.

    Hey Rat, 1970s John Travolta wants his “bubble” back!

    Round off the corners and roll Rat in his “bubble” down a long hill – that should give Rat a thrill of his life.

    Bullet proof boxes can be thrown in the river.

    It should say bullet-resistant as I’m quite certain a 50-bmg would go through any sheet of glass and plastic that could be moved on wheels.

    Part of my education included a belt or a sandal. Now, if I try to educate my child, Ill probably be sent to jail.The law has forgotten the difference between education and abuse.

    RAT feels he’s that important to be enclosed in a bullet proof box. We all know someone like that don’t we?

    This was probably drawn before the shootings in Gilroy, CA, but seems pretty appropriate. While such violence is unheard of in my little corner of Idaho, it seems that many other parts of the world find this sort of thing common.

    That’s actually handy for Rat to have, given his tendency to make enemies.

    I am 68, therefore i appear to have lived in a “free love” bucolic time. NOT SO !. the 50’s were pretty cool, but after i turned 15 in 1965 things were changing fast and violently, the assassinations, the marches, the lynchings, the riots. BUT, for kids it was still a time of fun and safety, no, we did not have to worry about someone shooting up a school, church, or event. We did not have to worry about pedophiles, it was rare, we rode our bikes and played outside and came and went as we pleased and watched black and white tv. The streets were not randomly violent like they are now, people are quicker to want a physical altercation, and they want a copy of the video. And you are right, Kaladin, the next generation may see you as having the best of the best. Hopefully it will all be remembered, because those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it,, look around, and look at history for the last generation, who are saddled with the history of the holocaust on them. such is life.

    The Ratmobile. Idea “borrowed” by Rat from the pope, but in a cheaper version.

    Who among us would possibly want to assassinate Rat?!
