The Original Rat Pack
The name “The Rat Pack” was first used to refer to a group of friends in New York. According to one version, the group’s original “Den Mother,” Lauren Bacall, after seeing her husband, Humphrey Bogart and his friends return from a night in Las Vegas, said words to the effect of "You look like a goddamn rat pack."
According to Stephen Bogart, the original members of the Rat Pack were: Frank Sinatra (pack master), Judy Garland (first vice-president), Lauren Bacall (den mother), Sid Luft (cage master), Humphrey Bogart (rat in charge of public relations), David Niven, Katharine Hepburn, Spencer Tracy, George Cukor, Cary Grant, Rex Harrison, and Jimmy Van Heusen.
In his autobiography, David Niven confirms that the Rat Pack originally included him but not Sammy Davis, Jr. nor Dean Martin.
Another species to be added to the ever-growing tick-list:
Africa’s Western Black Rhino has been officially declared EXTINCT. Poaching and lack of conservation have led the subspecies of black rhino to extermination, while the Northern White Rhino is ‘teetering on the brink of extinction’.
Way to go, humanity.
what’s sad is hardly anyone fucking cares or wants to hear about it let alone talk about it
