Buy dad a rat for Father’s Day

Sunday is Father’s Day, and we dads will be overwhelmed with neckties and wrench sets. We will feign ecstasy, and our loved ones will pretend to believe our protestations of pleasure.

But for a really nifty Father’s Day gift, how about sponsoring a rat? Specifically, an African giant pouched rat, about 30 inches long including tail.

Lots of other good ideas for charitable giving rather than spending money on a Hallmark car from Op-Ed Columnist, Nicholas Kristof of the NY Times.
