He’s between meals… literally.

Now, I know what you are thinking. But before you condemn me to fiery perdition, let me say that I have decided to post this because it will be seen by more people on here. If you have seen Gene or Jimmy please call one of the numbers on the poster. Taken at the Franklin Avenue 2 3 4 5 train station in Brooklyn.
What do Times Square, the Empire State Building, Grand Central Station and a homeless man in an MTA shirt rolling around the floor of a subway car holding a chicken have in common? ONLY. IN. NEW. YORK.
We boarded the 6 train at 33rd street around 7pm last night, and noticed a large scarcity of passengers in one section of the train. Upon looking down, it I saw first a live chicken, then noticed it was wrapped in the loving arms of an apparent homeless man wearing at MTA shirt.
He kept picking up the chicken, holding it over his head, kissing it, hugging it, and more inappropriate things that I will refrain from detailing. In the simple words of my fellow passenger, Charlotte, “That is straight-up chicken abuse.”
No one on the train was shy about photographing this man, as he was seemingly oblivious to his surroundings. It was truly an only-in-New-York event, a phrase that was uttered several times throughout the short ride.
In the words of evening news anchor Ernie Anastos: Keep fuckin’ that chicken.
In other news, the wire hanger industry’s stocks plummeted today.
Thanks to Gabriel Sanders for the photo!
The leather jacket doesn’t make up for the fact that he looks exactly like Mr. Satan from Dragon Ball Z. Photo credit goes to the internet.
