    •  The Cult of the Sacred Rat (4+ / 0-)

      Rodents being so fecund, they are the natural totem of children and newlyweds.

      Great shrines have been established, on the coasts East and West as well as in darkest Europe.  Devotees undertake regular pilgrimages to worship the Sacred Rat, who bestows his blessing through gewgaws great and small.

      Those too poor to undertake the pilgrimage may still share in his blessings by consuming the products of animal sacrifice at shrines located around the globe, thus earning the distribution of commercial tie-ins.

      For He is a wise and compassionate Rat.
