The New York Post: ‘Cupcake Rat’? Rodent gets boot from subway escalator, heads for high-end bake shop


This nonchalant New Yorker could give a rat’s tush about rodent riders.

A rat trying to crawl up an escalator in the wrong direction was kicked in the whiskers by the impatient commuter around 3:30 p.m. Friday in the lower level of Grand Central, a video obtained by Gothamist shows.

“After it was kicked it scurried toward the Magnolia Bakery line, and people didn’t even notice,” Andrew Chen, who took the video, told Gothamist.

Maybe this rat should avoid escalator workouts and stick to the cupcakes. Or, you know, pizza.

Only in NYC is there a debate about the ethics of kicking a rat off an escalator.
