The MTA Will Finally Chastise Men Whose Balls Need Three Seats

I have testicles, they're fairly sizeable (physically, not metaphorically), and they don't need a separate seat on the subway. In fact, no matter how big someone's balls are (again, speaking from a purely physical standpoint), they will never need an extra seat. Yet some men continue to sit on the train as though they… » 11/18/14 5:45pm 11/18/14 5:45pm

Hey ladaaays, because you've got your priorities straight, I know you've already got your Slutoween costumes on deck because Halloween is the only night of the year where it's acceptable for the ladyfolk to show some skin.

I Tried the Subway Flatizza. It Was Everything You'd Expect and More.

Due to overwhelming demand (and my own natural curiosity) I finally broke down and tried a product that's made a lot of headlines lately—Subway's new pizza concoction, the "Flatizza." » 5/15/14 2:00pm 5/15/14 2:00pm

Subway Sandwich Bread to No Longer Contain Chemical Found in Yoga Mats

Subway has been feeding us yoga mats. Well, to be specific: The bread at the sandwich chain’s American locations carries a chemical that is also found in yoga mats and sneaker soles for elasticity. This does not happen in Subways abroad, but the company is ditching it here in the good ol' USA, isn’t that nice? » 2/07/14 12:00pm 2/07/14 12:00pm

Over at The Jewish Daily Forward, Save the Assistants author Lilit Marcus has the first ever interview with Tzipporah, the blogger who started "Move The Fuck Over, Bro," a blog that posts surreptitiously taken photographs of men who seem to deliberately or obliviously take up too much room on public transportation. » 1/15/14 9:40am 1/15/14 9:40am

Subway is making official Hunger Games sandwiches like it's not insane

So I was all set to joke about how Subway would tie their crappy sandwiches into a movie where kids compete in a brutal contest for the amusement of the rich, and where a brutal revolution might be the only solution, and then I saw the above commercial where they actually fucking did it. » 11/08/13 10:24am 11/08/13 10:24am

Guy Loves Cheese So Much He Eats a Wheel of Brie on the Subway

Yo, I know you thought your week was shaping up pretty good, so I hate to break it to you like this, but what's actually been going on is that your entire existence has been hot garbage up until this moment.

Rude PDA on the Subway, Ranked from RUDE to VERY RUDE

Trains are often thought of as romantic places; in trains, beautiful humans have intrigues and kiss each other and cry and eat croissants or whatever. Subways, though, are different story. Subway travel is train travel's depraved little brother who owns The Wicker Man (Nic Cage version) on Blu-ray and pees in a… » 9/20/13 2:40pm 9/20/13 2:40pm

Subway Shuts Down After Adorable Kittens Get Loose on Tracks

If you live in a city with a mass transit system as sprawling as that of New York City, then you know that all sorts of things can screw up service (weather, passengers holding the doors, disembodied human heads), but has the reason ever been this cute?
