Rat On The Run

They say life is a rat race. I fucking hate rats with a passion. I’m surprised I lasted as long as I did working as an undergraduate research assistant for a rat lab, a job that required me to work with rats and mice on daily basis. Instead, I like to think of life as survival of the fittest. Yeah, I dig Darwin. The people who are most passionate about what they are doing survive. Those that are doing what they are doing just for the sake of doing it fade away. If you’re passionate about what you’re doing (i.e. hobby, job, whatever) then there’s no need to race because you’re passion will bring you back to it day-after-day.

Whew, enough with philosophical Coty. I just thought I’d share what went through my mind when I saw It’s Not A Race from Rat on the Run. You can pick up this tee now for the sale price of £12 (regularly £18) and formulate your own thoughts.

I’m not the biggest fan of rats (ok, not much of a rat fan at all), but even I have to say that this robot/concept rat from Benjamin Parry is unbelievably cool. If there was ever a candidate for a Terminator rat – this would be it! Wow.

If you dug this piece of rat art by Benjamin Parry then I think you might enjoy this tee. It’s called Pigeons Are Rats With Wings and it was designed by Chris Thornley. You can pick it up from Threadless for $18.
