The San Francisco Dungeon — a "60 minute journey through San Francisco's past from the Gold Rush to Alcatraz" — is now offering furry entertainment in a pop-up with a bistro setting. Except here you can sip on a latte, or "rat-tuccino" and interact with some domesticated rodents.

And it's for only $49.99, which will get you unlimited coffee and entrance to the Dungeon. Sounds like a rat-tacular deal to us! LOLz! (That wasn't even a good pun.)

Anyway, spokesman Matthew Clarkson said:

"We want to offer a frighteningly funny encounter with creepy-crawly critters you could only find at The San Francisco Dungeon. Drinking coffee while a rats on the loose? That's not for the faint of heart."

Yeah, no shit!

The rats will be provided by Rattie Ratz, which is a non-profit that encourages rat adoption. Clarkson also told Eater that the food served wouldn't be made anywhere near the rats, saying:

"We're obviously following all food code and hygiene requirements."

You better, dude! This isn't Ratatouille!

Some people are NOT feeling it though:

Well, this is just horrifying.

A mother in South Africa was arrested after coming home from a night of partying to find her 3-month-old daughter dead in her bed — after the infant was allegedly eaten by a group of oversized rats.

According to South African newspaper the Kathorus Mail, the incident happened over the weekend in Johannesburg.

The 26-year-old woman, who is charged with child neglect, reportedly took her daughter's twin brother to a tavern Friday evening and left her baby girl at home alone.

While Pizza Rat once charmed us with his can do it attitude and iconic cheese slice, his 15 minutes are clearly UP. (PLUS he may totally be a cannibal now!)

Not only is Pita Rat a bit more edgy in his choice of carbs, but he also enlisted another rat to help him carry the loot up the subway stairs. #Subwaysquadgoals!

#PizzaRat Revealed To Be An Elaborate Hoax? Just Like These Other Viral Fakers…

| Filed under: New YorkFoodCrazzzzyRatGIFsViral: AnimalsViral: NewsControversy

no title

Well, this is just disappointing!

According to a report in Gothamist, a performance artist may have trained a rat and released it in the New York Subway system to create last year's infamous Pizza Rat video.

Apparently, a struggling New York actor named Eric Yearwood revealed to the website that he was paid $200 to star in a separate viral rat video by a woman named — of course — Zardulu. The way Yearwood tells it, Zardulu is a New York-based performance artist and has trained and used rats in other videos, as well.

And the people who filmed and released the "spontaneous" videos can't be found for comment either??

No, Pizza Rat, no!!! We celebrated you with Halloween costumes and undying Internet love, and THIS is the thanks we get?! Why, you little… rat!
