Here Is a Picture of a Giant Rat Supposedly Found in a Bronx Foot Locker
Have you witnessed the latest giant dead rat of New York City, as photographed in what appears to be a Foot Locker stock room in the Bronx? It is a beaut! Actually, it is horrifying. The picture was tweeted by @TheGoodfella, who writes, "SON THEY FOUND MASTER SPLINTER AT A FOOTLOCKER IN THE BX...THIS SHIT WILD."
Perhaps you recall another ginormous, disgusting rat -- a small dog, practically; certainly a Rodent of Unusual Size -- discovered in August at the Marcy Houses. That one was identified as a Gambian pouched rat, of whom our latest similarly large beast may be a friend, acquaintance, or family member.
Where there is one, there are many. Where there are two, we will not be buying athletic wear for a long, long time. (It is nice the Foot Locker employee kept his referee shirt on, however, for the rat disposal. Adds credibility.)
One other question...what's in the box?
