Just Hanging Out
Most New Yorkers take their morning subway ride as an opportunity to catch up on the daily news, take on a challenging crossword puzzle, or check in on their weekly schedules. While most folks prefer to perform these activities while seated, the gentleman in this photo took his morning commute to new heights by hanging upside down from the hand railing and letting all the blood rush to his head while checking his Twitter feed. Fellow commuters didn’t even look twice.
Long Way From Home
This man wanted some company for his subway commute from Brooklyn to Manhattan, so he brought along his pet shark, Stan. While this sure made for an unusual and hilarious spectacle among tourists and fellow commuters, the folks over at PETA weren’t so happy to see this photo making its rounds on the internet. It turns out that the New York City subway was not the ideal living conditions for this commuter’s little friend, or any other aquatic animal for that matter.
Dressed To Impress
While you might think that this man was on his way to some kind of costume convention, it turns out that this is the way he dresses every day. For him, the extravagant fur coat is warm and comfortable in the harsh temperatures of winter in New York City. Meanwhile, his top hat and an extra pair of goggles are the ultimate way to protect his eyes from the sun. Throw in a pair of platform boots, and you’ve got yourself an outfit!
Along For The Ride
After the New York City subway made a strict law saying that commuters can only bring pets along which they could fit in a bag, owners of large dogs needed to get creative. The gentleman in this photo is just one example of how dog owners across the city decided to fight back against the unfair policy. By carrying his husky around in a tote bag, he was technically playing by the rules and looking super stylish while doing so.
Whenever you decide to sit down on the New York City subway, you’re taking a gamble. There’s no way of knowing what kind of stranger you’ll end up sitting next to. They could be a totally normal person who spends a majority of the commute checking their phone, or you could end up next to someone who wants tell you their whole life’s story. In rare cases, you’ll end up sitting next to a stranger wearing a giant rabbit mask.
Sit Back And Relax
Travelers on the New York City subway will go to all sorts of measures to ensure their comfort during their commute. Most folks bring a neck pillow, allowing them to lean their head back and catch some sleep before arriving at their destination. This gentleman decided to raise the bar when it comes to comfortable commuting by bringing along his reclining chair. While dragging the chair through the streets of NYC was no easy task, the comfort was well worth it.
Sasquatch On The Subway
Nothing is worse than getting stuck sitting next to a smelly stranger on the New York City subway. While this experience is always unfortunate, it is usually somewhat tolerable for most commuters, as long as they breathe through their mouths. However, when the only seat open is next to a big hairy creature who has spent hundreds of years leaving alone in the wilderness without any access to a shower, you’re probably better off just standing for this ride.
No Time For Food Prep
When people first move to New York City, they often find themselves surprised at the fast pace of city life. Everyone always seems to be rushing from place to place, not taking the time to greet one another, or even offer a friendly smile to a stranger on the subway. The woman in this photo is the perfect example of the speed of life in NYC. She’s in such a rush that she couldn’t even wait to get home to start her food prep.
It turns out that this subway car was only big enough for one fully-costumed New Yorker. That’s why Batman and Darth Vader faced off in an epic subway battle. With cell phone video cameras rolling, the superhero put up a serious fight against a worthy opponent. When it was all said and done, Darth Vader came out on top thanks to his space powers. Batman was forced to make the walk of shame to the next subway car.
Prepared For The Elements
This New Yorker wanted to make sure she stayed as dry as possible during her subway commute. That’s why she brought along her blue umbrella and held it above her head for the entirety of the ride. While you might find yourself asking why she couldn’t simply fold the umbrella up and open it once she arrives at her stop, it’s important to remember that most New York City subway cars were built several years ago, meaning that there are often leaks in the roof.
Some Things You Can’t Unsee
This is, without a doubt, one of the creepiest photos on our list. While most costumes that you’ll typically find on the New York City subway are friendly-looking superheroes or cartoon characters, this commuter decided to pick a costume that would prevent anyone from wanting to take a seat nearby. As you can see in this photo, their strategy worked! Just about everyone who got a glimpse at this demon decided to move as far away as possible.
Spidey’s Got Soul
The subway is the perfect place for talented buskers to make a few extra bucks and show off their musical talents for the daily crowd of commuters. On any given day, countless musicians take their tunes to the platform, hoping to get some well-deserved recognition. This performer had spent months busking with no luck. He decided that he needed a special gimmick, so he threw on a Spider-Man costume. Within hours, a video clip of his saxophone performance went viral.
For the most part, commuters on the New York City subway are used to seeing household pets. On any given morning, you’re bound to run into various dog owners who couldn’t find a dog-sitter to take their furry friend for the day. However, bringing an exotic pet on the subway is a whole different story. The gentleman in this photo decided that he couldn’t bear to leave his pet python home alone, so he put the massive snake in his backpack, and hopped on the subway.
May The Force Be With You
Unfortunately, their bus broke down, so these Star Wars fanatics needed to take the subway to the convention. While they definitely got their fair share of funny looks from tourists, the majority of New York City natives didn’t even turn their heads at Princess Leah and her storm trooper posse. That’s because they’re New Yorkers and therefore desensitized to weirdness on the subway. They simply bury their heads in a newspaper and carry on with their commute as if nothing happened.
The Discrete Dog
While most New York City dog owners do their best to fit their dogs into bags in an effort to abide by the new pet-restricting laws, this gentleman decided to take matters into his own hands and go incognito. By throwing a raincoat on his pooch, and holding it as if it were a child, the man in this photo was able to break the new rules and bring his dog onto the subway without being detected.
The New Man-Spread
For tall people, one of the worst parts of public transportation is the struggle to get comfortable. Anyone over the six-foot mark can relate to the feeling. You want nothing more than to stretch out your legs but you’re restricted from doing so because you’re in such close proximity to fellow commuters. By hanging sideways with his feet on the hand railing, this tall gentleman found a solution to this problem. Now, he’s able to stretch out, without bumping knees with strangers.
While true New Yorkers aren’t phased by much, this subway costume will surely give any out-of-towner nightmares for weeks. To be honest, we have no idea what this costume is supposed to represent. Perhaps this commuter was trying to look like some sort of red and white optical illusion. While it seems like they failed at providing an optical illusion, they certainly succeeded in creeping out everyone else who chose to ride on the subway that day.
If there’s one thing the New York City subway system doesn’t get enough credit for it would have to be its unique ability to bring people together. No matter where commuters are originally from or what their backgrounds are, they somehow find common ground on the subway. Take this photo, for example. Two complete strangers with completely different upbringings felt so comfortable with one another that they decided to take a nap together, using each others’ shoulders as pillows.
Making A Fashion Statement
On the New York City subway, you’re bound to run into all sorts of unique clothing styles. Some commuters dress fancy, wearing the latest high-end fashion designers. Others keep it simple, traveling while wearing a pair of basketball shorts and a tee shirt. Some commuters prefer to make their own clothes. The gentleman in this photo decided to make his entire outfit out of recycled soda can tabs. While he might look a bit silly, he’s doing his part to save the environment.
Soldier Of Fortune
This subway commuter had New Yorkers doing a double take. At first glance, it appeared as though a statue was occupying a valuable seat. Fellow passengers were furious when they realized that they would have to stand for their commute while a sculpture had room to sit. However, once they took a closer look, they saw that it was actually a man dressed up as a toy soldier. Their anger soon turned to confusion, as they wondered why this man was wearing such a bizarre costume.
Breakfast On The Go
While traveling on the New York City subway in the morning, it’s not uncommon to find passengers eating their breakfast on the go. Most commuters will grab a granola bar and piece of fruit on the way out the door, or pick up an egg McMuffin from the nearest McDonald’s. The gentleman in this photo took his breakfast on the go one step further by bringing along a pot of oatmeal. Apparently, he didn’t have enough time for Tupperware.
Now You See Me, Now You Don’t
When you first glance at this photo, it looks like a book is mysteriously floating in front of the door to the subway. When you look a bit closer, however, you’ll see that a gentleman in a camouflage outfit is actually holding the book and reading from it. Can you tell that he stitched the whole outfit by himself? We sure can’t! The craftsmanship is impeccable. It might just be the most professional-looking camouflage jumpsuit ever made.
On The Way To Neverland
This Peter Pan impersonator decided that his morning commute was the perfect opportunity to show off his incredible flexibility. He had been practicing splits for months, and his hard work had finally paid off. While most New Yorkers won’t even look twice at a bizarre scene like this, as they’ve become accustomed to seeing strange things on the subway, we’re thankful that a tourist was there to capture this hilarious photo and share it with the rest of the world.
The Calm Before The Storm
With the Power Rangers always heading for victory, you wonder if they have any time to relax. Well everyone here is the evidence. Just like the rest of us, the Power Rangers take their time on the subway to get a little R&R before their daily activities begin, and, while we all geek out at seeing them, they look like they’re trying to go incognito. That’s got to be a little tough with the world knowing who they are, and not to mention the bright colors they’re wearing!
We’ve seen dogs being carried in bags, held on a leash, or just held by their owner, but this is certainly something new. This dog is sitting casually on a rocking horse while riding the train. Kudos to the dog for managing to stay upright, because we all know the subway can get a little bumpy at times. He even has his legs perfectly situated on the foot peddles, so this has to be one of the cutest things we’ve seen on the New York subway!
What Do You Wish To Speak About Today?
The world can get a little crazy and days can be tough, so these children thought it was time to offer some emotional advice to those taking the subway. With the rush of New York, sometimes you need a little one-on-one with someone who will listen to how your day has been, how you are feeling, or what is bothering you, and these youngsters know just how to do that. For $2, can you really say no to a pick me up in the middle of a subway station?
Being At One With Nature
You’re most likely to find plants and trees outdoors, where enough rain and sunlight can get to them and help them grow. If not outside, then perhaps in your home to add some color and decoration, and bring light into the house. As for on someone’s head, while riding the subway, that one we fail to understand. At least wear a brown suit if you are trying to fool us into thinking that you are, in fact, a tree, but don’t give us a half-hearted attempt.
Practicality At Its Finest
This lady is a whizz when it comes to knitting, and with old wool lying about, she couldn’t help but make herself a new creation. What better than a face mask that will help fight off all the dirt on the subway, while also working as a mask to sleep better on her commute? It may look creepy at first, but when you look at the finer detail that went into this, you kind of wish she made you one as well.
There are really no words when it comes to this outfit. From the blue one-piece with black flower decor to the huge, outlandish hair piece to follow, we are stumped on how to react to this look, really. We’re not surprised to see the empty seats on either side of this gentleman, or perhaps a woman, because who knows what they may do next. We just hope they managed to make it to their destination because it looks like a tough one to see through.
There is no greater satisfaction than playing with bubble wrap and popping every bubble possible. That is why, when we see this hat, all we can wonder is how anyone could resist the urge to take it off this lady’s head and start popping it one by one. In fact, we wonder how the lady herself could resist the urge. Meanwhile, it may have taken some effort to make the hat to begin with, so she was not going to be tearing it apart any time soon.
Seeing a snake could lead most people to jump and run, but when you’re stuck on a moving carriage with a man holding several snakes, all you can do is move as far back as possible. It is unclear exactly what his motive with these snakes are since he has an open suitcase with enlarged dollar bills wrapped up in the zipped pocket. We certainly would not be offering any money to someone bringing snakes on the carriage during our daily commute and would jump off at the next stop!
The New Style
This New York City commuter is taking ripped jeans to a whole new level. We’re not quite sure what could have happened to lead to her jeans becoming so ripped but we’re almost positive that she didn’t buy them this way. In her head, she might think she’s making a fashion statement, but to the rest of the subway, she just looks ridiculous. Not to mention the fact that winter in New York can be brutally cold.
These two subway passengers had never seen New York City before. They were from out of town and couldn’t believe their eyes at how many people crowded the streets and subway cars. The culture shock of the Big Apple had this pair of friends absolutely dumbfounded. So much so that they spent the entire commute from the Upper East Side to Queens sitting on the subway making these faces. They were so flabbergasted that they missed their stop!
These girls wanted to ensure that their ride on the subway was as comfortable as possible, so they brought along their own couch for the ride. Sure, lugging a giant sofa onto the train was a challenge, but it was all worth it to sit in comfort through the entire subway ride. The only problem came when it was time to get off at their destination. The couch wouldn’t fit up the stairs to the city streets, so they needed to leave it behind.
Whenever you step foot in the Big Apple, you’re bound to see all sorts of crazy things. We’ve gathered up some of the wildest photos ever captured on the New York City subway. You won’t want to miss these! Every so often, everyone needs to eat on the go. Grabbing a burger from McDonald’s or a sandwich from Subway is completely reasonable. What’s far less socially acceptable, however, is eating an entire Thanksgiving dinner during your evening commute.
Nothing To See Here
New Yorkers are all too familiar when it comes to seeing costumes on the subway. In fact, it’s pretty rare to see commuters even acknowledge weirdness to any degree. In this photo, we see something extremely rare. If you think we’re referring to the incredibly well-detailed Avatar costume, you’d be wrong. What we’re actually referring to is the folks next to Avatar-man, who are literally turning their heads to get a glimpse. They must be from out of town.
While you might think that this photo was captured on Halloween, you’d be surprised to learn that this was actually just a typical Tuesday on the New York City subway. On any given day you’ll find plenty of folks like these who simply refuse to wear a normal outfit. We’re not quite sure where this group was coming from, but it’s pretty clear that it must have been either a wild costume party or a children’s birthday celebration.
Zombie On The Subway
To be honest, we’re pretty confused about this photo. Maybe this commuter was on their way home from a wild paint party. Or maybe they put on too much sunscreen. Perhaps they just had an audition to become one of the zombies on the popular AMC television series, The Walking Dead. While we can’t comment on whether or not they got the gig, one thing is for sure: Their costume and makeup design could use some work.
Street posters are no longer used as much. However, even in the age of electronic media, a poster with a cool catchphrase or an eye-catching photo will draw anyone’s attention. Whether you want to spread awareness, search for your lost pet, or just crack some puns, a street poster is still one of the funny ways to do it. Here’s a collection of some hilarious, goofy, and wholesome posters.
Claim This Pigeon
This guy tried to be a good Samaritan, but it looks like it’s not working out for him. The pigeon doesn’t follow any orders and doesn’t respond to any pet names. He yelled every pet name he knew, but the bird didn’t respond.
Moreover, the pigeon is terrorizing his family and the pet dog. Now, he just wants to offload this trouble. Is there anyone who will claim this bird? Please help out the poor guy.
War of the Droids
One thing is for sure, the person who made this poster is a huge Star Wars fan. If a person has come across these droids, he or she should inform them about it because these aren’t the droids he should be searching for.
The creator of the poster is probably the owner of these droids, which makes it a very cryptic poster. We don’t think anyone but him can tell what he meant.
This guy is willing to trade his dog in exchange for learning to play a musical instrument. He wants to impress his wife by playing trombone. If someone out there knows how to play a trombone and wants a pet dog, contact this desperate guy.
Help the guy out to fix his “failing” relationship. Besides, Toby deserves better. He shouldn’t belong to an owner who is willing to trade him.
This guy has come up with an inspiring piece of poster. Who would’ve thought a Rihanna song can be used in such a way? A lot of us will hate to admit it, but we want to believe in stories like these.
We want to believe somebody actually found love in this “hopeless” place. When somebody is passing by the lamplight, it will be very hard for him not to sing the song after seeing the poster.
Is This a Cat?
Maybe Paul is just a kid, or maybe he has never gone to school. At the very least, you have to praise him for having a good heart. He found this animal and sheltered it in his home so that he can give the “cat” to the owner.
Paul probably knows the pain of losing a pet. Whether Paul finds its owner or not, somebody should tell him how a cat looks.
For people wanting to join a rock band, they should check out this poster. These guys are looking for a drummer because their previous drummer quit after getting a new girlfriend. Drumming for a progressive rock band is not something anyone can do.
So, amateurs should not even dare to take part in the audition. He must at least know how to play: baada baada boom boom, tis tis, tocks tocks, and stuff like that.
Here’s another one of those posters where someone found an animal, but he will not give it back. Then again, how can someone lose a horse? It must be the owner’s fault, and so he certainly does not deserve to get it back.
Anyways, there is a contact number on the poster. If you’re the previous owner of the horse, don’t try to call it. Ignore the number and let him have it.
This is a huge problem. The guy here has a lost portion of his numbers. Is there a way to find it? Maybe a detective can find the missing numbers. He could ask about the last whereabouts of the numbers. With whom were they last seen?
Did this kind of disappearance happen before? If yes, where were they last found? Maybe they are in a page of a phone book or a diary.
Everyone has one’s own set of talents. Some of us can sing, dance, draw while some can roar their lungs out. This Chewbacca roaring contest is for people who can make powerful roars.
People who are gifted with a powerful roar should sign up for this contest – they will not be disappointed. Not to mention the winner is going to get a handsome reward. Don’t miss out on this opportunity!
In this day and age, Social Media Marketing has become ubiquitous in our day to day lives. Considering how much time we spend using Facebook and Instagram, this weird poster just trolled digital marketing in a hilarious way.
Here, the guy made a poster consisting of Facebook “likes.” It also looks like someone did want to “like” the post since one of the strips of paper has been torn out.
Looking for Lionel Ritchie
If anybody wants to find Lionel Ritchie, he should go to this poster. After that, he should start singing his legendary “Hello” song from the poster. Then, tear out a piece of the poster, one at a time, until he finishes the song.
Legend has it that Lionel Ritchie will make an appearance after completing this act. Don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity to meet Lionel Ritchie!
Don’t Lose Hope
It feels great when someone retrieves your lost item, be it something very valuable or just a simple rubber band. The guy could have just thrown it away – it’s just a rubber band, after all. Instead, he made a poster to find its rightful owner.
See, the world isn’t that bad. There are still good people out there. Maybe your stack of 20$ is lost forever. However, look on the bright side – you’re getting your rubber band back.
Missing Driving License
The guy lost his wallet, but all he wants is to get his driving license back. So, he made this odd poster. However, he doesn’t want to face the hassle and the bureaucracy of the DMV, otherwise known as the Department of Motor Vehicles.
So, if anyone finds his wallet, try to give his license back. Try to understand his pain. The last thing he wants to do is visit that “evil” place again. Don’t make him go there!
Since it’s Schrodinger’s Cat, we do not know if it is alive – and we better not find out. The cat might be still inside the box or maybe it’s not. Even if it’s there, we don’t know if it’s alive or not.
We should probably not peek inside the box. It’s Schrodinger’s job to solve the problem. After all, it is his experiment. So, he should be the one to deal with it.
People often exaggerate when it comes to describing a product in an advertisement. Our guy is not like that. If there’s a medal for brutal honesty, this guy deserves that.
From him, people will get what they see – no deceiving – if there is anything to see, to begin with. Even if he can’t manage to sell the “terrible” printer, he will give people a good laugh. That should be worth something.
The owner of the cat is a very talented artist. So, he didn’t bother to provide an image or print posters. He just drew a sketch of his missing cat. Is it possible to recognize a cat only with the help of a drawing?
Moreover, we still don’t get why he didn’t add his contact number or address on the poster. Maybe there is a trail of posters leading people all the way back to his house.
This lamppost here is lost in the space time continuum. Do not try to get too near or touch it. There is a chance a person might get stuck inside of it if he tries to touch the poster. If people see the poster, they should leave it be.
It is important to take an astrophysicist or a Stephen Hawking fan with you at the very least while searching for this wormhole poster.
This is probably one of the happiest dogs we have ever seen. To be fair, most dogs look that way while they are jolly. Who would want to give such a cute dog back, though?
Maybe the stuff written on the poster is all untrue so that people don’t want to keep this cute dog for themselves. Whether it is true or not, we have to find out at our own risk.
This guy put posters up for his lost ladder. How can somebody lose a step ladder? Did the ladder decide to run off by itself because it was tired of the behavior of the owner?
Did his neighbor take it from him to do his household chores without asking? One thing is for certain, the ladder meant a lot to the owner. Otherwise, he wouldn’t be willing to give 500 dollars as reward money for finding it.
A guy put up a very inspiring poster in his neighborhood. If people there are feeling down or need a source of encouragement, this could help. At least it will put a smile on their faces.
Maybe saying yes and being positive to all the difficult hurdles in our lives is what we need. They should take the piece of paper and be positive towards new experiences. Sometimes, all we need is a little push.
Ninja Turtle Missing
No, it’s not another average missing pet poster. A guy lost his turtle, but what is astonishing is that he has lost his nunchucks as well. What this means is that his turtle might be slow, but he is also armed and dangerous.
If the turtle is truly Michelangelo from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, then people have nothing to fear – except for the bad guys, of course. Our advice is to search for him in the local pizza joints. We all know how much he loves pizza.
Has anyone ever come across an odder poster? One half of the poster is missing, and it is asking for the other half back. We all know this feeling – that something is missing in our life; The pain of not having someone who fulfills us – who makes our life complete.
So, if anyone finds the other part of this poster, be a hero and make them whole. They deserve to be with each other.
You don’t always come across someone, whose name fits the person perfectly. This is one of those rare occasions. Maximus Decimus Meridious is a name fitting for this warrior guinea pig.
The missing, gladiator pig has probably set off to get his vengeance. It would be foolish to stand in his path. Let him finish what he has started. If anyone tries to call him, respectfully utter his full name.
Frodo failed to keep the one true ring safe – he has lost it. We should help him find it before the wrong hands get a hold of it. However, one must beware of this ring – we can’t be like Gollum and give in to its temptation.
It will lead to a very dark path. Retrieving the ring is of utmost importance because the fate of the entire Middle Earth is at stake. If anybody finds the ring, inform him as soon as you can.
Made a New Friend
People put up posters to find their lost pet or to give the pet back to the owner. However, this story has a twist. This guy found a lost dog, but he doesn’t want to give it back. He claims that he and the dog are “homies” now.
The poor guy is probably lonely and has nobody to talk with. The owner should let him keep the dog. At least he is considerate enough to inform that the dog is safe.
This guy put a poster in which he attached a lot of pieces of paper. These are “tearable” puns. Anyone can tear a piece of paper with the pun. We can never have enough puns in our lives.
Sometimes, in our monotonous lives, we need a reason to smile, something to laugh about. This guy thought about it and came up with this cool idea. We need more people like him.
Beware of the Ninja
Ninjas are the masters of stealth. They are very precise at their tasks. If anyone ever comes across one, they are done for. Nobody should talk about ninjas or try to find them. In fact, nobody should even mention the posters.
Pretending that they don’t exist is the best course of action unless they want their own demise. Even the person who made this poster may have gone missing. Beware!
When You Lose Your Smartphone
We usually store all our contact information in our smartphones. All of our personal information is stored there. What will happen if you lose it, though? This guy came up with a hilarious idea to solve this problem.
He made posters with his contact info and put them on various lampposts. However, is it safe to put his contacts out in the open? Bad people might get their hands on it.
Steve last saw his friend Vince on March 21. After that ice cream incident, he has never seen his friend’s face again. He is extremely sorry about the event that took place that day. He wants to be back to being friends with him.
He has forgotten everything about the incident and wants him to come to his place. Is there anyone out there who will find his friend for him?
The Final Hours
Aaron doesn’t have too long to survive. He only has 12 hours left. Carrying viruses is not an easy job. The creator of the poster feels for him, so he wants Aaron’s last moments to be as comfortable as possible.
It would be tragic for him to suffer alone, having no one to bite. So, if somebody finds Aaron, return him as soon as you can. He should spend his final hours doing what he loves.
