As anyone who has ever worked in any sort of restaurant in the world will tell you, rats are a regularly recurring issue. Most of the time they are a manageable problem. Rats tend to stay in the shadows, via being rats, and insecure about their appearances. But sometimes they claw their shifty little disease-ridden bodies from under the cupboards and sinks and leap directly into our donut bins, (and our hearts). Like this cute little fella and hispals at a Dunkin Donuts on 37th and 8th in New York City.
The person who captured the rat donut social explained to Gothamist: “At two-thirty [in the morning] every [day] the workers load the shelves with the mornings wares. Shortly thereafter like clockwork the rats come out and party.”
AIIGGHHHGHHGHG. This is gross, I think we can all agree. Dunkin Donuts food isn’t fit for any living creature. Have you seen the type of people that loiter there?
But, there’s a somewhat happy ending. As Gawker points out, the store has been closed by the Health Department.
