5. Pizza Rat

Remember, the determined rat who tried to drag a slice of pizza down a flight of subway stairs? He makes it almost all the way, then seems to get a case of the jitters, and dashes from the prize. Comedian Matt Little, who shot the video above, writes in the YouTube description “A rat tries to bring a slice of pizza down subway station stairs OR Master Splinter bringing food home to feed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?” To which Second Avenue Sagas responded on Twitter: “But did the rat eventually get its pizza or not? The ending is a Sopranos-level cliffhanger.”

Following the incident, the video expectedly became an Internet sensation. Hilarious comments flooded in about the pizza rat not being a true New Yorker in his attempt:

Rookie rat – real New Yorkers fold their pizza in half.

The other thing is what amateur New Yorker can’t walk & carry a slice of pizza? That’s an NYC rite of passage.
