New York, I Love You, But You’re Grossing Me Out

After the jump, I have posted a video of a man traveling on a New York subway with a pet rat on his shoulder who abruptly places the rat’s head in his mouth, shakes the rat all around, and then removes the rat and puts it back on his shoulder. The video is appropriately titled, “Rat Mouth.” (Not to be confused with Homeless Face Rat.) The thing about this video is that obviously it’s kind of gross, or whatever, but it’s also just like, well, right, yeah, the guy’s on the subway! What was he supposed to do, NOT put his pet rat in his mouth head-first and shake it around? Come on! Come on, MIDDLE AMERICA! It kind of reminds me of the grossest thing I ever saw on the subway which was when a homeless man danced (DANCED) in a puddle of someone else’s vomit until all of the vomit was absorbed into the textured soles of his already-filthy tennis shoes, and then proceeded to walk around the subway car PUTTING HIS FEET UP ON THE SEATS. The thing is, even then I was just like, oh, BUT OF COURSE.

There are a million stories in this city, and here’s a terrible one:

We should all be so lucky as to find something in this world that makes us hap–OH GROSS! (Via DailyIntelligencer.)
