IDEAS FROM CUSTOMERS.....
Val Hiliker -
He would be the only rat in Alberta Canada. Alberta boasts "there are no rats in Alberta" to that I would reply "only politicians"
I would use the rat with the kids with cancer that I work with. I'd use the rat as if it were in a fight for his life as these kids are. And even though it's a tough fight, it's worth it.
The idea: I would discuss articles from the newspaper with him, and every time I say a CAT word (like CATastrophy, CATalouge, CATegory, CATalyst,....or even CATch) the rat would get very neurotic, and start looking for the cat....
Idea: I would use him (her?) to portray the church mouse (rat) that by hanging out in the church saw and heard a lot of good things that changed his life.
I'd use him (her?) for sermon material - for a children's sermon, but aimed at all ages - about what we look like when we're trying desperately to keep up with the demands of the world... And how that hurts us emotionally and spiritually (but, still, keep it upbeat - yikes)..
From Coz & Co!!
This Ratty Rat has his eye on us and wants to explore the world. So we think he should come on over to England with us where he can roam freely and eat pasties with us and be a real rat on the run.
This poor guy is so neurotic because of the cheese scent cologne that you are wearing.
Meet Ralphie Rat, the ex-lab rat: severe side effects of the tests resulted in his new demeanor(forgetful) and looks. Quote from Ralphie: " That's the LAST time I volunteer for anything for free food!"
he's an exjungle rat, was attacked by a lion whom he TRIED to help get a thorn out of its paw, with disasterous results.He states: It's a JUNGLE out there.....
OR He is the world's oldest rat, that learned how to speak English and Spanish, by listening to heating vents over many years of his life. Oh the stories he could tell....
Actually he is not a mouse but a rat and not just any rat but a muskrat from the bayou country of South Louisiana.
This rat is from a war torn country (your choice) and tells of how wonderful it is to now live in a free country, with plenty of food and fine homes to hide in. His worst danger here are cats, which are smaller than he is, so fears nothing. So now he doesn't have to act as neuortic as he looks. He is still shell shocked, and loud noises make him jump.
Gérard ENCLIN Switzerland:
This rat left itself embarked in a case of food intended for the GI which fight courageously in Iraq. that heats over there and the balls whistle everywhere... proof are ear!
Mick Magic (Mark Fisken)
The Rat looks superb. He also looks like he is always trying to con or scam some kinda deal behind your back. I would give him a suitcase of cheap items like watches or jewelery. At every opportune moment he will try and sell you something out of his case whether or not he has it or not. He always gets sidetracked and likes the ladies. I would call him Arfer Sixpence .
Not the church mouse for sure. This character has spent a lot of time as the JAIL MOUSE! Man, does he have stories to tell.
Name: AJ Sebree
Idea: "Randolph the Rat"(who's very paranoid, and has a severe stutter) would be used in the drug awareness program, showing the signs of drugs and alcohol and how it "messes" up your life (just look at him) How these pitfalls don't just happen to everyone else, that they can effect all walks of life.
This poor creature is always getting blamed for everything, to which he replies, "Hey, I may be a Rat, but I'm no stool pigeon!"
He is a country mouse visiting the city mouse. He misses his turnip greens and carrots. Now he gets o;;nly meats and desserts
He's ready to talk about the dangers that exist out there in the world if you're not careful. Why just the other day he was minding his own business, eating some cheese that this nice friendly cat had offered him and before he knew it, that mean old cat was trying to eat him!
From: "Karen A Crosby"
This was originally a church mouse. He grew up, feasting on leftovers from potluck suppers and food left over
from youth group meetings. Junk food wasn't healthy, so he looks abit unhealthy. He tells of the dangers of overeating junk food, and the joys of listening to the praise & worship songs, and hymns, (rewrites some of their lyrics! like I surrender SOME) and he is fascinated by the Gospel message and tells the A B C's of believing in the Lord.
From: "Nita Padgett
You just saved him from the pieded piper and now he is going to do public speaking to save other rats.He was drugged and almost doomed but now with his help you can stay away from drugs and the pieded piper
