The sun rising…

(Don't worry - we haven't sold out...)

Next week…

Because this issue has 'so much in it' WotR will be back in two weeks time, hope that's okay? Here's what some of the Rodents will be doing with the week off:

- Ahchay, Fuseball, BOG and Gravy will be playing Halo 2
- SIckboy will be being strip-searched at Washington Dulles International Airport
- PAULEMOZ will be attempting to tear-up his post election residency visa
- Koworld will be putting off all work to feed his Star Wars Battlefront addiction
- Ely will be tearing out his hair trying to get Koworld's stupid fucking wireless bridge to talk to Koworld's stupid fucking Xbox so Koworld can play stupid fucking Live games
- Bog will also be wondering where his original Xbox controller has gone
- Swith will still be attempting to flush out the effects of his Mexican cow-pat mushroom holiday... with Mexcal
- Jimaroid will be embarking on a glorious new career
- Mamemeister's mysterious reviewing head will be spending quality time with Ava
- And all other Rodents and guests will be enjoying a break from us nagging them for articles - cheers then!
