Shocker: Jared Fogle’s “Jared Foundation” Was A Sham

This should come as absolutely zero surprise, but it turns out that accused child rapist and former Subway spokesperson Jared Fogle’s anti-childhood obesity organization, the Jared Foundation, was a sham.

Brandy (Yeah, That Brandy) Sang On The Subway And No One Cared

Brandy Norwood – you know, “The Boy is Mine” Brandy, or maybe you don’t know, because “The Boy is Mine” was released 17 years ago and some of our readers weren’t even born then – shot a video of herself singing a few bars from “Home” from The Wiz on the subway and no one on the subway…

This Dildo-Wielding Lunatic Rides My Train, Has My Heart

Of all the horrifying things I have seen take place on the New York City subway system (including but not limited to: a busker licking my neck after I gave him five dollars, a woman openly weeping the entirety of her commute, a woman slapping someone else’s child a year before NBC developed “The Slap,&#8221…

Helen Mirren Rides The NYC Subway Like A Dame

You never know what or who you might see when riding the subway in New York City, but a recent episode of “Broad City” did a good job depicting just some of the bizarre and smelly possibilities. However, not every outing on public transpo has to be so bleak — in addition to a steaming…

It’s A Gross Christmas Miracle: 2 Cops Deliver Baby On Philly Subway Train

I’m grossed out by the thought of someone eating on a subway train, which makes this birth story particularly nasty to me.

Two Philadelphia transit officers made a very special delivery Christmas Day, helping a women birth her baby on a SEPTA train. Around 6 p.m. Thursday night, Sgt. Daniel Caban and Officer…

Brit’s Brain Goes Haywire Over New York Subway System

British journalist Bim Adewunmi has been in New York for the last few weeks and apparently taking the subway has driven her insane. Writing in The Guardian, she expresses the feeling in the most colorful way possible:

“Think of a book with an opening scene set in a village in rural England.

I Don’t Blame Guys For Taking Up Too Much Space On Public Transit — It’s Awesome!

I’m sure by now that everyone has seen Men Taking Up Too Much Space On the Train, a genius Tumblr that more than adequately demonstrates the fact that we teach women to take up as little space as possible and teach the opposite to men. The blog draws regular ire from dudes, and the perso…

Twerking On The Subway Tracks Is So Hot Right Now

Eat your heart out, Miley Cyrus. Anyone can hump Robin Thicke’s Beetlejuice costume on a stage full of people. But it takes real cojones — and, um, possibly a death wish — to jump down on the tracks of the New York City subway system and twerk on the rails. DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME,…

Cosmopolitan Blogger Anna Breslaw Masturbated On The Subway

All the jokes about going downtown just write themselves, don’t they?

When a man masturbates in public, it’s creepy and it’s criminal and women feel at best grossed out and at worst violated. When  a woman masturbates in public, it’s …. a really funny article for Cosmoplitan?

“Game Of Thrones”‘ King In The North Is Just One Man Who Takes Up Too Much Space On The Train

Ask the average subway-riding woman what her number one public transportation pet peeve is and chances are good she’ll say, “Men taking up too much room because they seem to think they’ve got watermelons for testicles” or something to that effect. Yes, men who sit with their legs spread wide like they’re holding a yoga…

A Fake Subway Sign That (Sadly) Should Be Real

You’d think that it’d be pretty obvious: clipping your nails in a public place, especially a crowded subway car, is a bad idea. Not just a bad idea, but also a very unhygienic one. And yet! People still feel totally comfortable doing things they should probably only ever do in the privacy of their ow…

We’re Breaking Up: Subway Sandwich Artist Who Put His Penis On Bread & Snapped A Picture

Dear Ian Jett, Subway sandwich artist in Columbus, Ohio,

Look, I get it. You don’t like your job. Sometimes when we’re bored at work, we have this overpowering desire to whip out our genitals and rub it all over things. It’s totally understandable.

But why did you have to be so…

An Open Letter To The Couple Conspiculously Making Out On The Subway All The Time

Dear Couple Sucking Face,

The first time I saw you, in Manhattan’s Union Square station, I thought maybe you were saying goodbye, for like, a long time. How else to explain the five minutes of intense, face-sucking, ass-grabbing making out you two were getting into? As you stood there, right where the statio…

Dude Freaks Out Creepy Guy On Public Transit By Getting Creepy On Him

How do you out-creep a total creepster? It’s a question for the ages, and one that writer Chris Brecheen had often pondered. For years, Brecheen listened to his female friends complain about getting unwanted attention by men on public transportation. No matter what they did — wear headphones, keep their heads down, ignore them ––…

Two Men Filmed Getting Blowjobs On NYC Subway

Can we all just agree, as a society, no oral sex on public transportation? Kthx. Two couples were filmed on a New York City subway giving/receiving blowjobs in a very NSFW video posted on World Star Uncut. It’s way too overacted to be real, in my opinion — or maybe I’m just not giving my…

Subway “Love Conductor” Plays Underground Matchmaker With Strangers

Public transportation is good for many things, like watching the breeding habits of rodents and sharing the flu virus. But what about finding love?

This Is Why Everyone Is Working From Home In NYC Today

This is an image taken directly from the New York City MTA of what one of the downtown subway stations looks like post-Hurricane Sandy. That’s an entire subway tunnel full of water — and salt water at that — which rusts out subway trains and tracks, leaving them non-functioning. Whoa boy.
