The Rat Race
Wednesday, April 07, 1999
It has been said, "The trouble with the rat race is that even if you win, you're still a rat!"
This cartoon was originally published in the NZ Listener on page 8 of the issue of 21st October 1989. Presented here with permission.
Being a collector of interesting stuff, I kept it because I thought it to be funny yet profound. It depicts a rat crawling from the sewer and evolving upright to become human. Then on discovering money, he degenerates back to a rat, and falls back into the sewer from which he came!
To get it to work as an animation, some minor alterations were necessary.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
