Question of the day
Our last question asked: The Gothamist floats the possibility that all these viral rat videos can be traced back to what possible source? The possibility that they all might be the work of a mysterious performance artist named Zardulu and a trained rat.
Congratulations to Craig Pittman of the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first to get that right! Honorable mentions go out to these wonderful people for answering correctly, as well: Sabrina Buckwalter (who adds "I wondered as much too!"), David Daniel, Carrie Gray (who wonders via hashtag "#WhyIsThisAThing?"), Laura Alix (who adds "Oh, New York, how I miss you sometimes..."), Ken Walker, Jeanne Kirk (who notes "(we all have our hobbies!"), Lucia A. Walinchus (who calls the videos "Metaphors for the struggle of humanity. Like how I probably posted this tweet too late. #RatRace"), Kim Newman (who suggests "Maybe she could have a rodent circus..."), Mark Gibbs (who alternatively suggests "Perhaps she could have a go at training Congress to do something. Anything."), and Ron Casalotti (who calls her "the best rat-trainer/performance artist since the Pied Piper of Hamlin"). Shout out to Margo Howard for theorizing "The rat's proud mother. Or: a dim Domino's marketing department."
As for today's question, here it is: The world's oldest living animal is making headlines today for what reason?
