The New York subway is the most popular subway in the country, which makes it the transportation system of choice for commuters and dead predatory fish. This one was riding the N train from Union Square towards Queens, and it had clearly had a long night, judging from the cigarette and the Red Bull.

He spotted the shark under a seat when he boarded the train at midnight, and decided to go all Sharkend at Bernie’s with it. Here’s the shark as he appeared earlier in the evening:
Wait — the Metrocard was a prop too? Well how did the shark get on the train, then?
