In our neighborhood, there is a dumpster next some bushes. Whenever we walk the dog by there, we joke around that there is a rat named Trash Can Sam who lives in that dumpster. So, I figured what better way to introduce a new animal character than to have the dog discover someone. So, I wrote the script, but never made the comic.
A few months later, we walk the dog by the bushes and dumpster and the dog starts sniffing around. Suddenly, we hear some interested barking and a lot of startled squeaking. And out of nowhere a giant rat scurries out of the bushes and makes a mad dash along the sidewalk for the safety of the dumpster.
Folks, I predicted the future.
