MTA: Around 12:30 am last night, the conductor aboard a Ditmars-bound N train at Queensboro Plaza reported that there was a shark aboard the train in car #8994. The conductor isolated the car and the train proceeded to Ditmars Boulevard terminal. Upon arrival at Ditmars Boulevard, a Train Service Supervisor reported the shark was dead and he placed it in a garbage bag and disposed of it in the trash. The Road Car Inspector on duty at Ditmars Blvd. normalized the car and returned the train to customer service.
They weren’t kidding around with this Sharknado 2 thing coming to NYC huh? Imagine getting that call as a train dispatcher? ‘Ahhhh yea dispatch, this is ahhhhh, N-Train 3442 and ahhhhhh, we ahhhhhh, got a shark on board.’ Knowing New Yorkers, dispatch was probably some pissed off black lady like ‘nigga proceed yo ass to Ditmars! We got a schedule to keep!’
Side note: With the disappointment I’m hearing about Shark Week this season, I wouldn’t be surprised if this is the top story next year.
