There's one or more in every family

"We are distant relatives of the NYC renegade rats," the mouse celebs sorrowfully admitted at a news conference held today.

Thus they confirmed the rumors that have been running rampant like their scurrying relatives. "To anyone who may have been offended by the rats' behavior," Mickey said, "we sincerely beg your forgiveness." Minnie went on to explain that this group of relatives had visited them in California last year and had kept on extending their visit. "They more than overstayed their welcome and finally we had to give them the boot," she admitted. Sighing in disgust, Minnie raised her little white-gloved, upturned palms in the air and added, "But what can you do? Just about everyone has freeloaders in their families, right?"

Before leaving to get ready for their red carpet appearance at the Oscars Ceremony, Mickey and Minnie thanked all their friends and supporters, reminding the group of a quote from Addison Mizner in The Cynic's Calendar: "God gives us relatives; thank God we can choose our friends."
