Some of the newer readers of this site might not be aware that yours truly loves rats. The inflatable, scab-busting kind that is. For this reason I cannot resist sharing the following fella from the Omni Hotel in midtown. As you will see he has a friend to keep him company! Donna writes:

Hey There,

Since the union busting rat is part of your wedding photo album (I love that story!) – I thought you might appreciate these photos I took today of the rat and his friend the roach arm in “leg”??  For a month the union workers have been protesting the non union workers hired by the Omni to no avail. They’ve  added drums, whistles and military style chants…nothing! Now, the piece de resistance, The Roach!!!

Those of you craving more rodentia goodness can and should click here. In so doing you will be directed to The Rat Patrol: a photo pool dedicated to documenting our inflatable friends!
