New Yorkers love their pizza, and the rats are no exception.

A video posted to YouTube Monday shows one of the city's rodents carrying an abandonded slice down a stairway at the 1st Avenue L station in Manhattan. It gets pretty far before dropping the pizza from its teeth. The creature looks like it wants to have another go at it, but the footage cuts off at 14 seconds.

The user who posted the video, Matt Little, couldn't help but insert the obvious joke with his upload. 

"Master Splinter bringing food home to feed the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles?"
