A New York City Rat Taking Pizza Home On The Subway Became An Unlikely Hero On The Internet
New York City is one of the greatest cities in the world, hands down. It's been called the city of dreams (among other things) and there are countless songs about the city and the inspiration that many people have found there. Like any big city, however, NYC is not without its share of rats and rodents who also call the city their home and thrive off the food and waste provided by the millions of human inhabitants.
Recently, a commuter captured something on film that has got the Internet all stirred up. A small rat is seen carrying a slice of pizza down the stairs of the subway, presenting a difficult but tasty challenge for the industrious little guy (or girl). The video quickly exploded on Twitter, with many people commending the rat for having big dreams while others were confused as to why the slice was left behind after a while. Matt Little, who took the video, says that the rat did return after a little bit to take a few more bites and then scurried away again. Maybe he was trying to rally some ninja turtles to come aid him in carrying the large slice?
