Rats Go Wild on the Subway


Ugh, the 4 train, of course.

Wait, this wasn't an Improv Everywhere "prank"?

I see that and I raise you a Babyfinger Eating Ferret.

I live off the 4 train, and a couple of weeks ago saw a rat-related hijink I'd not seen in 10 years in NYC. That would be a rat on the upstairs platform at 86th Street running down the stairs from the local platform to the express. Apparently to transfer from the 6 to the express and annoy/gross out a bunch of people on the 4. You might be surprised/nauseated to read that rats are not especially deft at going down stairs.

I have very little up close experience with rats, so I'm happy picturing this adorable descent instead. Don't anyone ruin it for me.

My old train, and right near my old stop, too. "Do you miss New York?" people ask me. Kinda!

Sure, but for every New Yorker who got attacked by rats on the subway last year, 10 people saw an exhibit at P.S. 1.

The rat later pretended not to see the pregnant woman standing, looking for a seat, by fiddling with his iPad.

I'm confused it the rat engaging in suspicious activity?

I saw some strange-looking rats in the L tracks last night. And then I realized they weren't rats! They were subway mice, humping, and their writhing bodies mid-rodent ravishment combined to look like a rat.

I do believe that is known as the "rat-king". Prepare to be thoroughly grossed out. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rat_king_(folklore)

it would seem rat activity is on the rise everywhere. i've never seen so many rats around people's park and that fucking empty lot on telegraph as i have in the last 6 months or so. on a related note, FUCK YOU KEN SARACHAN!

At least they're not capybaras.
