an Oh Myyy Property

Ah, New York! The Big Apple! Is there anything more iconic to the city than the Statue of Liberty? Or Times Square?

Perhaps one thing: a rat, stuck inside a MetroCard machine.

Could it be possible that the rat inside the machine is a GOOD thing?

One thing's for sure: MetroCard rat is now the only thing on any New Yorker's mind.

Ah, New York! If you can make it there, you must love rats!
