When Ari is visited by creatures in the night, he must figure out the source of what ‘s eating holes through all of his things. Told through mixed media of original illustrations, stop motion, and “Drunk History ‘-style narration, RATS! is a hilarious episode for anyone familiar with their home being taken over by unwanted infestations.
FIELD NOTES FROM THE FUNNY OR DIE STAFF
On the spectrum of home pest infestations, rats are definitely close to the “please god no ‘ end, along with scorpions and anti-vaxxers. They ‘re big ‘ ‘more like small cats than mice ‘ they copulate like crazy, and, worst of all, not a single one I ‘ve spoken to has ever given me Splinter ‘s real-world location.
I much prefer Ari Frenkel ‘s version of rats as tiny, adorable homesteaders with a penchant for affordable, well-designed home accessories.
This tall tale comes to you via Ari Frenkel.
