Could it be that the rodent was trying to drink away a heartbreak during the love-filled holiday? One can’t be sure — and it’s unknown if “Henny” is OK — but with thousands of likes and retweets, the twitterverse commented on the peculiar scene.
“He/she was drinking away the pain from the Knicks’ 18th straight loss,” @CWilliamson44 went on to comment once again.
“Pizza Rat fell on hard time,” @PardonMyRicci commented. Meanwhile @stephenkeenan14 simply tweeted “Lightweight” along with a laughing emoji.
Other users made references to the rodent movie character Ratatouille, while another referenced Stuart Little.
“Yo I use to love Stuart Little, it’s a shame how much alcohol can change someone,” @Brycekauf tweeted.
Yet another twitter user put a spin on popular song lyrics and commented: “Maybe it’s time we blamed it on the Henny.”
Only in New York City.
