Rumor: Vogue's Rat Problem Is Getting Worse

Tales of Vogue's rat infestation at the magazine's new offices are getting even grosser. According to Gawker, new details of the rodent problem have been unearthed, and it sounds like rat poop is literally everywhere. Apparently, the rats found a way in through the building's ventilation system and are setting up camp on every available space, leaving their droppings behind on desks, chairs, and everything in between. If the reports are true, it's safe to say that Anna won't be coming in for awhile.
