Carol: Hi Hurst, we’ve actually got two stories about rats this week!

Carol: That was bad, even for you. Now, let’s get to the headlines…
Hurst: Wait, before you go, I wish you a Happy World Lizard Day tomorrow (August 14), a fulfilling International Homeless Animals Day on the 18th, and of course a jolly World Orangutan Day on August 19!
