Two Large Subway Rats Fight Over A Perfectly Good Churro In A Dramatic Video Worth Your Seconds

A new poll suggests that there are more rats in New York City than there are skinny people in Mississippi. There was no such poll taken but you don’t need any proof to believe in God, so don’t start getting on your high horse now. Anyhoo, as the weather heats up, the rats emerge from their underground burrows that are probably bigger than my apartment and gobble up any and all trash that people throw on the subway tracks. It’s quite a sight, especially considering most of them are large enough to play on the O-line at Alabama. This particular squabble between two rodents took place over a perfectly good churro that was disposed of on the tracks and was likely caught on camera by someone waiting 45 minutes for the C Train. Will this video change your life? Probably not. But neither will that Excel spreadsheet you’re working on. Overwrite the formulas bro. You won’t.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
