    Find it hard to believe that Rat would pass up the opportunity to take other people’s money.

    Since Rat is not a truthteller, I think it’s just an excuse not to spend time with Goat.

    The Ignoble Prize Committee will call Rat just after he falls asleep and before REM sleep.

    The message will be a pun written by Pastis.

    And the usual whining from areas that do not have a Nobel prize. Even the Economics prize isn’t a Nobel. His will was very specific.

    Sorry Rat. The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine goes to the two scientists who developed the technology that led to the mRNA Covid vaccines. Now watch the anti-vaxers heads’ explode.

    Since Rat is always saying ‘Do you want a piece of me?’, he figures he’ll get the Nobel Piece Prize.

    The “Washington DC” stop is actually ½ mile across the border in the City of Takoma Park, Maryland, for anyone caring about the facts. It also shares a building with the police Dept, so Rat is advised to skip it.
