If you've ridden on public transit, chances are that you've encountered at least one case of Widespread Leg Subway Stance, a terrible behavioral defect that affects thousands of men, ages 12 to infinity. Well, Gothamist has found what might be the worst incident of WLSS of all time — and it's more extreme than anything we've ever fathomed.

From Gothamist:


We've tackled the subject of Male Leg Spreading before, but never quite this wide: we don't think the gentleman in the photo above, who was spotted on a Brooklyn-bound C train this week, could possibly get any wider without dislocating a hip. He takes man sitting to the extreme, until it practically ventures into subway yoga.

You know, I'd be annoyed if I wasn't so impressed by his flexibility. This man doesn't belong on the subway, he belongs in the gymnasium!
