The Year of the Rat

As the story goes, the Jade Emperor decreed that the order of the zodiac would be determined by the order in which the animals arrived to his party. The Rat tricked the Ox into giving him a lift, and just as they arrived at the finish line, Rat jumped down and landed ahead of Ox, becoming first.
