Not a creature was stirring...

What do people give you for Christmas if you're a veterinarian who works at the National Institutes of Health (as my husband does)?

Little rats wearing Santa hats to hang on the Christmas tree. Also Lab Animal of the Month calendars (featuring mostly rats and mice) and mugs with pictures of--you guessed it--rats.

This reminds me of the joke - way back, when lawyer jokes were admissible :-) - that NIH vets had actually replaced all their rats with attorneys, because:
- they were far more plentiful;
- you didn't grow nearly as attached;
- and there are some things a rat just won't do.

Obsequies to Roberto et al; some of my best friends and a first cousin are attorneys; and other disclaimers as required by... law.
