:null_object is an option to #mock, not #mock_model, which does call
down to #mock but doesn't pass any arguments through to it.
The optional hash argument to #mock_model allows you to stub specific
methods (in addition to #id, #to_param etc which #mock_model already
does for you), e.g. mock_model(OrderAddress, :first_name =>
'Al', :last_name => 'Chou').
If you've got so many methods to stub that it's not worth doing it
explicitly, your best bet is probably to use #mock directly and
