Rate My Rat

Rate My Rat is an ingenious plan to call attention to the ways in which NYC publicly funded Subway cleanup is sorely lacking. New Yorkers have been asked to submit their subway rat photos, and the gallery is open for viewing and rating.

My favorite? I call this one Hedonism Rat:

Tell me he doesn’t remind you of Hedonism Bot on Futurama…

I must say I was delighted with the folks in my homeland for coming up with this absurdly wonderful campaign.

Check out the rat gallery here.

  1. Ha! Looks like bliss. Some of those other rats were clearly not so lucky.

  2. I officially have the creepy crawlies.

      After growing up seeing NYC Subways rats, I remember being very impressed when I went to London and saw that they had adorable little mice in their underground transportation system instead. It just seemed…classier. 🙂

      Awww…toally adorable! I actually love rats, mice and all the little critters of the rodent kingdom. I should have a SheWalksSoftly Rate My Rat contest where people send photos of their pets.

  3. uwa…is…is that rat sitting on someone’s LAP? If it is a subway rat (even a pudgy, fat slow one that is probably used to people) somehow it seems wrong to scoop him up and put him on your lap for a photo….
    Even a hilarious photo like that one.

  4. Hedonism rat is wonderful; I just want to poke his little belly….I wonder how many diseases he’s carrying.

      Even if he’s carrying diseases, I imagine him saying…just like Hedonism Bot…”I apologize for nothing!”
