Welcome to New York City! There’s dollar pizza! There’s rats! There’s rats carrying dollar pizza down stairs! Like, actually, sometimes the subway vermin are lucky enough to take advantage of someone’s dropped slice of cheesy bliss and it’s the delicacy jackpot.

Check out footage from Matt Little of one NYC rat dragging the bounty of his life down some subway steps. You’ll probably scream, or laugh, or go get pizza for dinner now. 

The real question is why does the rat eventually give up on the slice? Did it suddenly realize it’s lactose intolerant? This mystery will forever haunt me.
