A lot of weird things happen on public transportation. All rules are basically tossed aside — it's like the wild, wild west on the New York subway or the London underground. Weird costumes, animals that definitely aren't service pets, creepy masks, the whole nine yards.
You never know what you're going to see, and sometimes you see things so strange that you just have to take a picture and share it because no one would believe you otherwise.
If the car is full but you have to get to work, you don't have a choice.
Sometimes you just have to hang on for dear life and hope the trolley doesn't make any sudden stops.
It's All Part Of The Equation
You know when you have the sudden urge while on your way to work to do math and it's so dire that you have to take over a bus window to do it?
Ya, no, we don't get it either.
She's Milking It
If you're going to be flashed on public transportation, this is definitely a best-case scenario.
Her facial expression made it look like it would be something a lot worse than a kitten hidden beneath that coat.
Now That's A Baby
If you're the kind of person who doesn't want anyone to sit beside them on the bus or on the subway, this is a far better way to do it than putting a backpack or bag there.
No one is going to ask you to move your demon baby. Quite frankly, no one will talk to you at all.
Is He Wearing A Skirt?
You know what, dogs get cold too. Everyone else gets to be warm and bundled up, why shouldn't he get to be cozy too?!
He's got the booties, the jacket, the blanket skirt, he's all set.
Edgar Allen Crow
Having a bird on the subway is one thing, but when you combine the crow with its owner, it makes for a pretty ominous-looking passenger.
No wonder there's an empty seat beside them.
It's Fine, Everything's Fine
When people say 'hold the door!' while running for the bus, this usually isn't what they pictured, but this works I guess?
It doesn't look like a practical solution in the winter, but it's something.
Just Hangin' Out
If you're willing to set up a hammock, you probably have a pretty long commute ahead of you, so you might as well make yourself comfortable.
Always take the opportunity to nap if it presents itself.
Some People Can Pull It Off
There's clearly one of two things happening here. Either he didn't know the shirt was see-through and just went for it, or he was completely aware and tried to rock it.
I don't think the look works, but, to each their own.
"Subway Maniac Incidents Soar"
The headline on the paper that man is reading could not be more perfect considering what's happening on that pole, and he doesn't even appear to have noticed!
He's missing out on the free show.
Maybe You Should Uber
It's unclear whether the police officers are trying to help get the panda on the subway or if they're trying to get him off, but either way, it's a situation you don't see very often.
Someone save him!
Get Off, Immediately
Oh heck no. Get off the bus immediately if someone looking like that is on the same one as you.
This is how horror movies start and it's not going to end well.
Don't Rat Him Out
Based on the man's face in the background of this photo, no one on the underground in London was expecting this man to have not one, but two rats inside his hood.
The one bird in a hand saying doesn't apply here.
The Krusty Crab Subway Car
Well, looks like no one is ever going to be able to use that subway car again.
Whether someone mistakenly dropped them (it could happen okay?) or they tossed them in there before running away, this car now belongs to the crabs.
Don't' Get It Twisted
Okay look, to each his own, everyone is entitled to cross their legs how they want, but how does anyone want to do this?
We're not even entirely sure how someone would discover that their legs could do this.
Sleeping on the subway is one thing, but stretching out like this man is a whole other level. This also does not look comfortable at all.
He's going to wake up with a wicked twist in his neck.
Why Did The Chicken
We're no animal expert, but does this woman know that that's a raw chicken she's dragging across the road?
We have a lot of questions for her, but more important than her uncooked chicken, we need to talk about the socks and high heels she's sporting...
How Did They Get Through The Turnstiles?
This is honestly the best possible way to travel on the subway.
You are guaranteed to have a seat, you don't have to worry about talking to anyone, and you won't have to be infected by other people's germs.
Every Sidewalk Is A Runway
This is what the Sunday morning walk of shame, minus the shame, looks like.
They know they're rocking those heels and they don't care what anyone else has to say about it.
A Literary Scholar
Maybe the word 'books' means something different wherever this picture was taken, but this definitely doesn't look like a box of books to us.
Maybe this little guy is in there with the books, trying to educate himself.
Our Own Personal Iron Man
Do pullups on the subway like this man in order to establish your dominance over all of the other passengers who are just trying to get to their daily office job.
I respect his commitment to the gains though.
The Nap Car
If we entered a subway car to find people sleeping like this, we'd either be thrilled or creeped out.
It sort of feels like the start of a zombie apocalypse, but also who wouldn't appreciate a couple of extra minutes of sleep on their way to work?
Under no circumstances was this a necessary way to carry these plants, but it's happening anyway.
He's not even using his free hands to balance himself on what is surely a jerky subway ride, as most are. He's just chilling, proving to everyone that he is better than us.
All Hands On Duck
Of all the animals to have to sit next to, this is probably one of the better ones if it's a well-behaved/well-trained duck... can you even train a duck?
It looks like it's a friendly duck at the very least.
How Does He Breathe?
Camo is meant to help someone blend in, but based on whoever took this photo plus the other man taking a picture, this camo suit seems to have had the opposite effect.
There's no way this person isn't dying of sweat inside.
Making A Statement
Do you think they always remember that their hood looks like that? Or do they wonder why people are giving them funny looks until it's pointed out to them?
It's definitely a fashion statement.
Who's Laughing Now?
Everyone knows the subway or any other public transportation is a germ pool, and this person is not down for that.
While the rest of us are dealing with flu season, this person will be fine thanks to their astronaut hazmat suit.
Do you think they came together or did they both happen to show up with these masks and decide to sit with each other?
Whether they had met already or this was their first encounter, they're meant to be together.
I'd Rather Stand
We sincerely hope that this photo was taken on Halloween because that's the only time that this wouldn't have been completely freaky to look at.
Instead, it's only mildly freaky if it's a costume.
Enough With The Paparazzi
This poor sad yeti/Big Foot/abominable snowman is just trying to get wherever he's going without people staring at him or taking pictures.
He just wants to live his life without the disruptions!
Bring Your Bed To Work Day
So does the bed stay on the platform when this person goes to work, or do they bring it along with them to have in case they need to take a spontaneous nap?
You gotta do what you gotta do I guess.
You Can't Pass Until You Give Him A Tip
Yes, that's right, you're looking at a didgeridoo made of what appears to be PVC piping.
It looks more like a long vacuum than a musical instrument, but it seems to be working for him.
Cutting Down On His Morning Commute Time
He's just standing there waiting for the subway like any other passenger on the platform.
It gets tiring having to fly in from Brooklyn to Central Park every morning, why not catch the train?
On His Way To His Next Duel
Imagine how much faster things could have happened during medieval times if knights had the ability to just jump on the subway or hop a train instead of having to ride across the country on a horse.
Dark ages? More like the Metro ages! Amirite folks.
Galloping To Work Would Probably Be Faster
Are you still allowed to refer to someone as a centaur if the bottom half of them is a zebra, not a horse?
The idea is still the same, isn't it?
Burst Through It Like The Kool-Aid
As far as emergency exists go, this sight on a German subway does not make us feel confident in our ability to use this door as an exit if we needed to.
Why does this weirdly look like the bricks were put up quickly?
Why Not Grab Your Groceries On Your Commute
Your wife wanted you to pick up dinner on your way home but you were dreading having to stop at the grocery store when all you wanted was to come home after a long day.
This subway car, as unexpected as it is, is a happy surprise.
It Must Be Mating Season
You've been telling yourself for months that you want to start walking to work more frequently.
Entering the subway to find dozens of people dressed as penguins is just the kick in the pants you needed.
Fruits Need Outdoor Time To Stretch Their Legs Too
We forget that fruits and vegetables spend their lives growing outside, only to be plucked up by someone and sold to another person who then keeps them inside forever.
Maybe your bananas want a little taste of the outside world.
Sorry Isn't Going To Cut It
If he's in such a dire situation that he has to craft an apology while riding the subway to her apartment, he's going to need a lot more than a pizza to apologize for whatever he did.
Thing's probably cold too.
Now's Totally The Time To Tweeze
You always wonder what these people think the rest of us see around them. Are we invisible to them? Or do they just not care what we think?
Listen lady, it doesn't matter if you pits look great at the event if you spent the time getting there traumatizing your fellow passengers.
