Yesterday was the 37th annual "Run for the Rodents" here in our fair city. (Actually, I kind of think that statement might say it all.) This year's theme (?) was CelebRaty with names like Hannah Ratannah, Robert Ratford and Ratalina Jolie. Eleven rats participated, racing down the red carpet for a chance to wear the garland of fruit loops and take home the golden rat statue. The winner (pictured above) was Ratalina Jolie. I'm not sure if she is being retired and put into a breeding program after her win or if she will go on to race again. Festivities prior to the race included a parade featuring pirates, a mini cooper dressed in rat ears and Elvis. And, in case you'd rather see than read about it, here and here are a couple of clips of the event.
