LAST GASP: Got Rats?

If so, someone would very much like to talk to you. “Associate Producer” writes:

I’m not sure whether or not this would be the kind of thing (it most assuredly is— Ed. Note) that would be of interest to you or your readers, but it’s certainly a city-wide issue, so I wonder if you can help.

I’m part of a team producing a new documentary series on the city’s by-now colossal rat population – outnumbering humans in NY 12-to-1 by some estimates.  We’re going to be following a team of exterminators as they set about ridding a range of homes and businesses throughout the 5 boroughs of rat infestations…

We’re keen to hear from anyone who is suffering from this menace.

Thanks!

Here’s the dealio: if you want to share your Rattus norvegicus experiences (or simply want to learn more about this project) you should shoot an email to:  sciencetvshow (at) gmail (dot) com

Not only is your confidentiality ensured, but they’ll set you up with an accredited local pest control company that will tackle your rat problem FOR FREE. Yes, I just wrote F-R-E-E!

Get cracking Greenburgers, Bushwickers and Long Island Cityslickers!

This moment of excellence has been brought to you courtesy of the Queens-bound platform of the G train at Broadway. Given that the Metropolitan Transit Authority cannot master simple bookkeeping, I suppose it should come as no surprise they cannot spell either.*

*To clarify/reiterate; this tile work is new. Or is it? Apparently this is a source of considerable debate.  Richard writes:

Forgotten-NY.com claims this has been there since 1937: But there’s some debate about it:

Apparently the MTA made a makeshift taped-on correction that has disappeared.

Only the best for the Crosstown Local.
