An angry rat, sometimes violent, often rude and sarcastic. A seemingly dumb pig (OK, really dumb). Zebras who try to think they can convince crocodiles to not eat them. A bunch of other animal characters. And the occasional parody of other well-known comic strips (where the rat takes over the strip).

You can catch the comic strip at Yahoo! News too.
