Left: The famous monument to the Titanic musicians at Broken Hill, Australia. Right: Less well-known but equally poignant is the monument to the deceased rat musicians at Warfarin, South Dakota.

HER VERY PLUCKY RATTYSHIP

207410.jpg


THE COUNTESS OF RATS

"Some disgusting humans were smoking in the boats."

Bubonic blue-blood showed heroism,
if not her-rowing-ism, because let's
face it, her paws too small.

"Nasty men noisily coughed up catarrh
and spat, which is unhygienic," she
protests.

Ermine-clad Aristo-Rat Appalled

"Could have given me an infection."

Crew Had Probably Not Washed Their Hands
On Being Summoned to Boats But Had
Emerged From Stokeholds Having Recently
Handled Shovels in Very Dark Places

IMAGINE IT

Men Repeatedly Cursed In Presence of Rodents

Shall Now Be Late For My Drain.

THE SEA
RATASTROPHE

A Nibble-Bodied Rating

SAMUEL LEMMING

Jumped over the edge
as the vessel plunged

Modestly insists
that "I was only
following others."

Acted on instinct in sinking

Neither saw nor herd of Gadarene swine

A Titanic Quarter-Mastiff growls:

"Blimey, I knows wot I'd like to do to the bloomin' likes of 'im, given arf a chance! Snivellin' civilians..."

>>He didn't impress Harold Lowe<<

Speaking of whom, Bob, I think you should withdraw your previous remark that "male rats (probably Italian) would stop at nothing..."

I would propose that you substitute the word "Italian" with "furriners" or "members of the Ratin laces."

Major Rathur Poison

Makes his daring descent to boat 6
Having earlier boasted of his yuck-to-man status

Lovely rattie!
