In the last Tabata in the Joss Whedon tribute series, I want to celebrate my own personal favorite Joss Whedon creation.

This Saturday is the Chinese New Year. 2020 is the year of the Rat, a creature thought in Chinese culture to be quick thinkers, successful in their endeavors, and to be content with living a quiet life. They also symbolize wealth.
