New York rat drags a slice of pizza down subway steps. Insert joke about inferiority of your preferred regional pizza here.

Lets just be clear: if the pizza was actually any good, the cameraman would have stolen it from the rat and eaten it anyway.

Wait, deep dish pizza is rats??!?

Deep dish pizza is made out of rats. They're making our food out of rats. Next thing they'll be breeding them like cattle for food. You've gotta tell them. You've gotta tell them!

I once spent several minutes watching a rat on the tracks try to jump onto a platform about 6 inches above the tracks with half a bagel. He would back up . . . run run run . . . and JUMP, and slide down the wall. I was rooting so hard for the little guy I actually let out a little cheer when he finally made it.

Years ago, sadly before I had a phone with a camera, I saw the fattest squirrel I have ever seen in my life perched on a Giordano's box sticking out of a trash bin. If you're a rodent eating deep dish, dining out is pretty much your only option.

In recent memory and on two separate occasions, I have seen the most gleeful squirrels ever seen. One who found a near full jar of peanut butter near a dep down the street from me, and another who found a leftover takeout box of poutine two blocks away. Their expressions I can only categorize as HOLY SHIT I WON THE LOTTERY.

Sure, I ♥ NY and all. But the last time I was there in the summer, I saw a rat the size of a large rabbit, broad daylight in a small park in lower Manhattan (probably East Village, can't quite remember where). In fact, I thought it WAS a rabbit, but specifically followed it along the path, only to see the long rat tail, and lack of rabbit legs. The thing gave virtually zero fucks. My wife saw it too... we were gobsmacked. I've seen big rats here in Chicago, but this guy was the king of rats.

God, I love rats. When I was in college, I worked briefly with rats on a project that involved a maze shaped like the letter T. We'd put one randomly selected toys in each arm of the T, and then we would place a rat in the stem of the T, so that the rat would go down a long corridor and then could turn left or right at the end. Rats like novelty, so we were basically trying to figure out whether the rats could learn to remember where the newer toy was depending on when we ran the trial. Initially we'd planned to score the rats' toy preferences based on which arm of the T they sat in.

I quickly learned that rats are much more inventive than that. My all time favorite was the rat who realized that we hadn't tethered the toys in place or secured them in any way, and who therefore decided that the best way to play this game was to first collect one toy, than the next, and then sit on them both in the stem of the T and chitter to himself. I still remember him carefully hauling a plastic pizza cutter that was longer than he was through the maze and banging it angrily against the corners when it wouldn't fit as quickly as he wanted it to.

Scoring his videos was always something of a challenge.

Are you sure it wasn't a possum because I saw a dead dog-sized possum in my neighborhood in Brooklyn a while back and they turn up on the train now and again.

There's even a rumor the Health Department released them for some reason.

Biggest rat I've ever seen was on a rainy night in Philly, coming home from my part-time job in the evening. It sat in the entryway of the subway passage on 8th Street, and I swear, I thought it was a stray cat at first. Once I realized what it was, I nodded, crossed the street, and went into the subway by another entrance. No rats I've seen in NYC come close.

One of the most quintessential "well, I guess I live in a city now" moments was when I saw a man wearing only half his pants try to pee on a rat skittering around the rails while waiting for a train to come.

It wasn't until I found myself thinking "that rat looks like a Jasper. He should be named Jasper" while watching this all go down that I realized how deep I was.

My only opossum encounter was in the Boston area, walking home after a show (because the subway closes at 12:30 and the bars close at 2), and a possum was splayed across the sidewalk.

I took a step towards it.
It wouldn't back off.
I took another step.
It hissed at me.
I hissed at it.
It scrammed.

Now, I didn't see any pizza near it, and it wasn't a hissing rat. But opossums are marsupials, and marsupials have pouches, so I would not disregard the possibility that the opossum had bought one of those one-dollar single-serving Tony's frozen near-pizzas from the Star Market ("Tony's: The pizza opossums would eat!") and was carrying it around until its shift break. They're really stupid animals.

It was almost 20 years ago when the subway flooded and the MBTA had these giant pumps pulling water up out of the green line. They'd spray the water out over the park area of Commonwealth Ave and you'd get used to the constant phhsssssttt of the hose.

Until one day while walking past, I heard the phhhsssstt go quiet and the water stopped spraying. Then there was a Jack Kirby level THHOOOMM noise and a giant rat corpse was shot out of the hose, landing somewhere down the street in a splat of mud and fur.

My guy and I used to have two pet rats, and we would let them spend time running free around our apartment (they were surprisingly disciplined about pooping in one corner of their cage). One night, we'd ordered a pizza and were watching a movie. I took a bite out of a slice, set it down on the table, and reached for it again a minute later. It was gone.

I looked up, startled, to see Gumshoe running away from me, dragging an almost-whole slice of pizza behind him. I took the slice away, but I gave him a little piece as a reward for his impressive display of gumption. Our rats were always stealing shit, escaping from their cage, finding new hiding places...they were so awesome.

I think all the St. Louis–style pizza rats are actually squirrels. People leaving dumpsters open and/or destroying the lids of dumpsters means my neighborhood is full of squirrels climbing fire escapes with pizza, corn cobs, chicken, etc. One time a squirrel left a piece of cornbread on the sill of the window closest to our fire escape, I guess for safekeeping.

So the only reason the rat abandoned his prize was the cameraperson startled him. Rats startle fairly easily.

Also, they make great pets (get two, they're social animals). If you have patience (I don't) you can train them to do tricks. If you're considering getting a rodent as a pet for your children (it's about a 2 year commitment, which is pretty manageable), get some rats!*
