More on the rat race

Calling all rats.

Assemble at the starting line. Take your positions.

Yeah you too at the finish line.......didn't you know that there is no finish in the rate race ? That's right, come around and assemble back on the starting line.

OK, here are the rules - well there is just one only: Win. At all costs.

That's it. There are no other rules, no scruples, no morals - after all you're just rats so don't get all highbrow on me please. I know you don't care for anything other than winning, that's why we made the rules like this, that's why you're here, that's why you keep coming back for more. That's why you're rats.

You old hands know the drill, but for the new rats here are some tactics. Be ready to glorify your own achievements at every opportunity - and if you can do it at the smarter rat's expense, all the better. Be ready to suck-up at a moment's notice - and whatever you do, don't forget to take credit for every success, whether or not you had anything to do with it. Failures ? Your fault ? No they're not ! remember the golden rat rule: never admit any failure - lie if you have to, beg if you must, but never ever admit any weakness - you can't let those other, fatter rats get ahead.

This is not about scruples or fairplay - this is about winning after all. Right ? rats?

Be ready to change your positions at a moment's notice. The most successful rats are the least consistent. Principles are for losers. Rats were born to follow the cheese whichever way it lies, however it moves, whoever offers it.

On your marks then. Go !!!!

    Well said !
    By the way, do not ask the rats, what the heck they are trying to win and why, these questions are too complicated for them and you run the risk of confusing the hard working team !!!

  2. Are there any BLUE EYED rats? I guess there are! and if there are blue eyed rats, then there must be the exact opposites of these blue eyed ones!
