These rats will NOT be playing over here anymore!
Or at least they won't be in customers' views!
A Manhattan Dunkin' Donuts recently got into hot water after one customer uploaded a video of rats chomping down on some of its baked goods!
We were wondering why the New York City Health Department, which had issued the chain store a grade of A, hadn't closed the shop once the rat news was revealed, but we guess they were just biding their time.
Because they've announced since that the rat infested store has been

Each year, 17,000 people receive a kidney transplant, but it's the number of people that don't receive one that is so astounding.
THAT number is about 17,000 people times FIVE, which is why news that scientists have made functioning rat kidneys at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston is SO amazing!!!!
When the kidneys were transplanted into rats - they effectively produced urine for the rodents!
Normally rat urine isn't very exciting, but this could be a first step towards creating replacement organs for folks who suffer from kidney diseases.

A neuroscientist has linked the brains of two rats together, so when one of them pushes a lever - the other one does, too!
The rats were trained to push a lever when a light went on, but after a while, electrodes were placed in the rodent's brains.
Soon they had one rat pushing a level because of the light, and another rat pushing the lever only as a response to the brain stimulation it felt from its partner rat.

Hurricane Sandy is wrecking A LOT of shiz…in the human world and the animal world too.
The superstorm may force the evacuation of 12,000 marine animals at the NY Aquarium, pet food had to be recalled and WORST of all (not really) Alec Baldwin had to walk his dogs in the RAIN!
Now the rat population may be kaputz even though some believe the storm would bring on the Rat Apocalypse.
