I can deal with NYC rats but not these praying mantis
 

 

Delays, service changes and humongous bugs, oh my!

The MTA had one more pest plaguing the subway system on Tuesday when a massive praying mantis joined commuters for a ride.

City Councilman Keith Powers was on the uptown 6 train when another rider warned him he was sitting dangerously close to the long-legged insect.

The lawmaker quickly took cover — but not before tweeting a photo showing the enormous bug clinging to the subway car wall and staring back with its cold black eyes.

“Like most New Yorkers, I’m frightened by the gigantic praying mantis on the subway but also relieved that he didn’t yell ‘It’s showtime!'” Powers tweeted, in apparent reference to the ubiquitous subway performers.

Other New Yorkers responded in horror on social media.


“Holy crap. Can I say that to a Councilman?” tweeted one user.

City Council Speaker Corey Johnson, who has proposed that the city take over the subways, credited New York City Transit boss Andy Byford for the new straphanger.

“Andy Byford continues to improve the subways and up the game,” City Council Speaker Corey Johnson joked on Twitter.

Of course it'd be the 6 train

That train always got something going on

One time I got home, heard a noise that was behind my PS4. I look behind it & it's a dragonfly snacking on the power cord

When he said hes glad it didn't yell "It's showtime!" this is the first thing I thought of.
