OH REALLY??? Come On! When's the last time you saw an aardvark walking down the streets of NYC?

Actually, a couple weeks ago, I did see an aardvark riding the G train. I'd just gotten on at Lorimer and needed to get to Hoyt-Schermerhorn (was on my way to the NYC Transit Museum), and there was this aardvark riding with a porcupine across the aisle from me. Kind of odd, but, it was the G train. You can really never know what to expect on the G.
