Subway Posters

I am a big fan of the instructional posters in the Tokyo subways.

I'm not sure if it's b/c the women seem so upset or b/c the guy seems so pleased about their anguish, but this one makes me laugh every time I see it.

Another variation on the "talking on your cellphone makes people cry" theme. I'm guessing the subway must have been really unbearable with people on their phones to justify as many signs as they dedicate to this cause.

Apparently I should hide my trash under furniture at home.

I like this one b/c I can't figure out what the couple is supposed to be doing. I mean obviously they're not letting the crippled old man sit in the courtesy seat, but is the guy eating a Reese's peanut butter cup? And the girl's giving him a heart, which should be done at home? Also, the injured guy doesn't seem as upset as the people in the other posters. In fact, he's kinda creepy.

  1. 1. Having your phone on speaker makes women cover their privates.

    2. Of course it is a blond American pissing everyone off.

    3. Is awesome.

    4. Was the guy on crutches drawn by the Simpsons' creator?
