@  DiscoMoose : (16 January 2017 - 08:18 PM) lol happyrat that's pretty funny, thanks for sharing
@  happyrat : (16 January 2017 - 08:13 PM) Gotta share this funny story with everybody: Setticans send me some awesome rat bedding today by courier. While a guy at work was telling me about his rat infestation and all the money it cost him so far, the courier arrived. While the guy was still spitting, ranting and raving, I opened the parcel in front of him with a fat smile on my face and took one of the tunnels out. He wanted to know what it was, so I explained to him its bedding for my ratties. Well, I have never seen a man that pissed-off and speechless!! He stormed passed me and all I could hear was " F******g teddybears" (I think he was referring to the embossed print on the fleece and not my face!!) .... hahahaha
