It must have been a slow news day – The Pizza Rat of the East Village

One of the things that keeps you ‘centered’ here in New York is that anytime you get a news notification on your iFoam you never know what weird shit has or is about to happen. Monday was no different when I get the notification from the local NBC affiliate, that there is a Pizza Rat in the East Village. “Wait did you just say a Pizza Rat? Get the feck out of here with that!” Yes folks, the YouTube video of the now famous pizza rat went viral! Naturally I laughed and immediately looked to see if he had his own twitter handle and thankfully he didn’t disappoint as @NYCPizzaRat was up. This started me to reflect on similar past one hit wonders. Feel free to add one on the comment line if I forgot one.

Pipe Kitty! Yeah I had to unfollow Steph B on Twitter for about a week after that whole saga. Still not a cat fan!

And of course we had the Monkey that escaped from Memphis Zoo earlier this year.

Sorry folks, that is all I got today. I have an interview that I need to study up on and am pressed for time.
