Two Rats Fighting Each Other Over a Slice of Pizza is Peak New York City

1 minute read

First, there was Pizza Rat, who was so popular he was turned into a sexy Halloween costume. The original Pizza Rat video, as you probably recall, showed one rodent dragging a cheesy slice down the steps of a New York City subway station. But now, a new video has surfaced, and it shows two rats fighting over a slice:

Onlooker Jonathen Liu posted this obscene video on Instagram, where he declared, “I win today, interwebs.” The video raises some questions, though. Why was there a pristine, seemingly untouched slice of pizza lying on the subway tracks? Did Liu or someone else throw it down there with the hope of creating the next viral Pizza Rat video? Have these rats been trained to fight over pizza?
