Given the content of the previous post, I can’t figure out why I rented the DVD, Ratatouille. It’s a Pixar animation about a rat that finds his way from the countryside to the City of Lights and becomes–get this–a chef at a famous restaurant. Ugh. Rats shit where they eat, and this one is cooking in the restaurant? There are a couple of scenes when there were dozens of rats in one shot crawling through the kitchen pantry. I think M almost fainted.

What was I thinking?

They should have shown the rats shitting around the kitchen, then having the droppings get people sick. That, at the very least, would have been a public service to educate kids that rats are not cute furry little animals but disease carrying vermin.
