And Now, a Sinkhole Full of Rats
By Claire Lampen

In one of the surest signs of an impending apocalypse we have yet seen, a New York City man fell about 15 feet into a pit of rats when a sidewalk sinkhole opened under his feet. The ground simply split and swallowed its victim, 33-year-old Leonard Shoulders, as he waited for a bus on Saturday afternoon. Shoulders survived, albeit with a few broken bones, but his family says he is “deeply traumatized.” Which, yes.

The hellmouth reportedly wrenched open on Third Avenue near 183rd Street in the Bronx. One minute, Shoulders was just standing there, his mother — Cindy White — told NBC 4 New York; the next, “it was like a suction,” she recalled. “He just went down.” Surveillance footage corroborates her account: Shoulders took one step forward and the concrete ate him.

You are never far from a rat. or, apparently, in NYC, a lot of rats.

"You dirty rat"

Jimmy Cagney, the original Hollywood hard man. Bogey, John Wayne and Clint Eastwood improved on the concept, but the original is still special.

Are the rats going to sue at the sudden preciptation of a scary human into their midst?

They outnumber the other parties, after all.

I mean, if it goes as usual, the party responsible for maintenance will rub mud in about how he's making a frivolous lawsuit and should just accept his medical debt and die of complications, like that woman who got third-degree burns from to-go coffee...
...Americans aren't bitter, why do you ask
