Scenes From the L Train: Rat v. Rat, FTW (Video, of Course)
Last night, our intrepid social media coordinator Francesca -- you may know her as the voice of @VoiceStreet -- stumbled (not 'cause she was drunk!) upon a sight that we consider something of a live metaphor for the rat-fighting-rat culture of our own lovable NYC. Seriously. Here is a rat, fighting another rat, for an extremely large and seemingly delicious baguette on the tracks of the L train at First Avenue at 12:45 this morning.
This Is Not Jane Austen's Fight Club.
Francesca dubs it "disgusting but awesome." We call it "existential" (baguettes, those are French!). See for yourself.
And yet, in the end, teamwork prevailed, which should be a lesson to all of us carb-lovers: "A third rat came from behind and they all dragged it to the other side of the track when the train was coming!" says Francesca.
That's almost cute.
