Ratical!

Who are these people, and how did they make those tiny rat boards? [shaking head]

[Obligatory] Hang 20, Brah!


Sender-inner Mark D., [hang loose hand signal] And yeah, I like the hop at the end, too.

OMG these micies are too cute! I wish I surfed like that on my first try! Rock on little kahunas!

Fur sure! Fur sure! Totally gnarly!

Too cute!

Only thing that would have made it any cuter for me is if at the end they had been sitting under their little tiki hut sipping drinks out of coconuts!

(In real life I'm not much of a rat person, but I can be on CO.)

Actually, rodents probably did this long before humans ever came along -- this is how we think the various islands got populated with different critters. Imagine them all saying to each other, "dood! let's catch a wave over to Fiji!"

So, so cute !!!

Like tail-tewly awesome they rod-ent those waves like professionals!

Metz

Methinks this will cause some fuss...

...on the other hand, I loved it!

The hop at the end really is the best part. :)

(Errr, eroneous placement of a hyphen)
That should have been
"rode-ent"

Ok I officially give up I cannot spell or pun effectively sorry folks, *turns in sillyness badge and calls it a day*.

Oh, my gosh I just laughed so much, that was excellent. Loving the hop also. Also liked the backwards surfing, and the one that stayed on when you thought that, surely, he mut have come off in the wave. Yay to rats!

Hmm, I think the lil rodents in that vid need lil life jackets. One hit with a board and not more surfing ratsaroni.

Marmy
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 09:52 AM

lmao as bad as I feel for those rats... that was freaking adorable. I think I need to go to youtube and favourite that stuff.

Fegli
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 09:52 AM

But...but...the vid intro asked if we'd ever seen surfing mice--and those are rats, no? Anyway, the little springs off the boards were TOO funny.

ShelleyTambo
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 09:55 AM

Was that last rat at the end wearing some kind of rat board shorts? Looked like some kind of fabric on its rear end. Maybe it was a little rat life jacket. :)

 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 09:56 AM

almost at the end, little dude one the green board , ALMOST TOTALLY caught a CURL!
It was SO totally AWESOME dude! You have to check the Vid again to catch it!
What a great way to spent a sunny afternoon! :)

OMG I cannot believe Meg would post something like this! This is animal cruelty! There's blood splashing everywhere!!

*goes back to declawing kittens with a chocolate-covered rosty old pair of pliers*

Helene
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 09:57 AM

And I thought surfing Penguins were redonkulous!!
Makes me want to go to the beach and see if there are other surfer rats out there.

Martha in Washington
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:01 AM

if these are mice (and i think they are), then it would be Hang 18, since both rats and mice only have four toes on their "hands".

amanda
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:02 AM

I feel this may end up a pudding and chardonnay post......

*heads for fridge*....

Hazel
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:05 AM

Then add the head and tail in there! Hang 20! ;-)

Metz
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:06 AM

No Way Brah! Too cool.

luvinmalssomuch
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:08 AM

Oh how awesome! The people are clearly watching out for the rats (they're right beside them at all times) and they found a gentle surf just right for them. While I wouldn't trust MY rats to do this (I've always had wily ones, and haven't actually trained them to do much), I bet many rats would love this. They adore the water.

But as I foresee nuffing, I have my raisin toast and ripe peaches ready!

R. Moore
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:09 AM

"pudding and chardonnay"

please to esplain ?? ....

liz
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:10 AM

OK, I'll be the first nuff. I have pet rats and they are not as hardy as people think, but they are sensitive intelligent creatures, so I am pretty sure these ones getting tumbled in saltwater are pretty terrified. Would it be as funny if they were kittens? What bothers me most is that others will see this and want to try it with a $5 rat from the pet store. There, all done! ;)

Whoa dude! That was totally awesome! *says in Californian voice*

Shannon Johnson
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:14 AM

I can't believe I'm the first to say it... totally rat-ical, dude.

MamaDawn
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:14 AM

I think this is cool and the rats proooobably, don't mind, but at the same time, I see I big lolspeak capton over the picture DO NOT WANT! They don't really have a choice do they? Then again, I used to put my parakeet on the ceiling fan and give him a little SLOW ride. What? He loved it! He didn't fly off! I was 10.

e-beth
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:16 AM

Yeah, this isn't amusing.

Noelle
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:17 AM

YAY!! NUFFS!!!

*cue instrumental surfing music as pudding food fight starts*

Helene
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:19 AM

maybe it isn't salt water?
maybe its a river or a lake?
they have lil waves too.
and wouldnt the rat's run for their lives when they hit the beach if they were really scared? at least they didnt duct tape them to the boards so they couldnt fall off.
or I guess they could be snake-food.
they look like pretty lucky rats to me.
i didnt know rats had or wanted freedom of choice.

liz
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:21 AM

Liz, it is customary to have some light refreshment for nuff posts. We sling pudding and sip chardonnay, or whatever drink behooves us.

Angela, These rats might be terrified, but they might not. While I wouldn't recommend doing this, the rats I've known would love it (assuming I can find a beach nearby as tame as this one). But I'm glad that you know your rats would not enjoy it and therefore will not try it.

R. Moore
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:22 AM

Poor little animals! How dare someone think a rat would like water? Don't you know the sewers where they run wild are DRY?

(Hazel, pass teh puddin', plzkthx.)

brinnann
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:22 AM

Our poster poses the question "Who are these people, and how did they make those tiny rat boards?" Well, it's obvious! It's the same people that made the tiny backpacks for the flying hammies!

brinnann
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:25 AM

Annie, you in here? I swears I didn't bring em, I'm still wearing my best behaviour! I'm not much of a rat girl myself, but these gnarly little dudes are pretty cute :D

Cassandra
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:26 AM

TUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUBULAAAAR!! That's amazing. I love making Kuzco, my rat, swim. But surfing?!? New realms await us, my furry little critter!

Ben
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:27 AM

OMG. i dont know what to say.

what is the word for beyond redonk? i think a new term needs to be created.

do they have teensy little beach towels too?

too cute

jen
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:27 AM

Cassandra I am here and I know you didn't bring um. I have had rats before and tehy (Mine .. well really my daughters) hated water so I have mixed feelings but the little Tailio of that last one who hoped off his board says he is pretty happy.

Annie
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:32 AM

That would have been awesome if they didn't call them mice because they are STOOPIT!!!

They're rats, ratards. I mean...nevermind.

Anyway, I felt bad for the lil dude that hit the camera!

Mello
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:33 AM

Brinn do you think they make like little cars and bikes for birds??

Annie
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:34 AM

liz "i didnt know rats had or wanted freedom of choice."
That's a weird thing to say. Why wouldn't an intelligent animal want freedom of choice? To avoid pain and suffering is a basic choice for all life forms. Rats have been proven to laugh and dream. Give them a little respect, because they will be on the planet much longer than we will.

Another Angela
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:35 AM

Why not? They made a motorcycle for a mouse named Ralph (or maybe that was in a book...)

Cassandra
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:36 AM

They make tiny iPods for cats' ears.

Helene
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:36 AM

and before someone tells me my rats don't have freedom of choice because they live in cages, one of my rats is free-range, and the other three live in a huge 5' tall ferret cage in the kitchen that is open to a big balcony. I don't even shut the cage door.

Another Angela
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:38 AM

People like Angela are the reason I enjoy 'versies so much!

Helene
 |  Jun 22, 2007 at 10:39 AM

Helene ROFLMAO.... OMG trying to chock down my laughter. Stopppppppp hehehe
