Pizza Rat Just Got Slightly Sexier

Pizza rat had many qualities, but sexy wasn’t an adjective any human (to our knowledge) assigned to a rodent who recently made headlines by dragging a slice of pizza down a subway station staircase. Of course, a thing’s inherent lack of sexiness has never stopped anyone from dressing as a “sexy” version of it for Halloween, which brings us to the $89.95 pizza-rat costume featured on the left.

As you can see, the element that distinguishes this Yandy.com offering from Amanda Seyfried’s Mean Girls Halloween look is the pair of “attached pepperoni pizza slice accents” framing the model’s crotch. It doesn’t make a lot of sense, really, but neither does the joy millions of people derived from watching a parasite-covered vermin struggle with some trash in a mass-transit system that many of us have to use every day.
