Burrito Rat is just getting started here. Soon he flips the burrito so he can run forward with it.
If recent events are any indication, it seems that it is no longer the norm just to send social media updates about what you’re eating. Some people have taken this one step beyond by posting videos of what wild animals are eating.
Pizza Rat is probably the most famous example. And this week, another rat joined the ranks of celebrity food scavengers. Say hello to Burrito Rat, so named because of the apparent burrito he drags away across New York City subway tracks.
Surely one reason for the fascination with these food conquests is the size of the food compared to the size of the animal carrying it off. Pizza Rat arguably carried off the largest item, but I think Burrito Rat might have won on weight. Burritos are hefty.
