There was a dead shark on the subway in NYC this morning. Yup, really.

So, Wednesday morning's commute was a little stranger than usual for some New Yorkers because, when they boarded their Queens-bound N train they were greeted by an actual shark carcass. Yeah, there was a dead shark on the subway.

So, Wednesday morning's commute was a little stranger than usual for some New Yorkers because, when they boarded their Queens-bound N train they were greeted by an actual shark carcass. Yeah, there was a dead shark on the subway.

One tipster emailed Gothamist to alert them to the oddity, reporting that it took a few stops for the MTA folks to clear the car on account of the fact that THERE WAS A DEAD SHARK ON SUBWAY.

"I board a car that's not terribly full and as soon as I enter, a stench hits my nose. It's not the typical urine/trash smell, it's...fishy? I look down to the end of the car to see a dead shark on the floor. I think I stood there for a good minute just staring, thinking 'Is this for real?! Oh come ON, NYC!' One of my fellow passengers remarked 'I've been riding the subway for 15 years, and this is the weirdest thing I've seen. And I've seen EVERYTHING.' The train filled as we made our way to Astoria, every new passenger was getting excited about it. Once we got to Queensboro Plaza, an MTA employee made all of us move to another car."

Yup, dead sharks on the subway are officially a thing. You can feel free to make all of your Shark Week jokes, now. [Gothamist]
