Subway rides can be unpredictable and entertaining, and these 50 photos are proof of that. From New York to Tokyo, people have captured the weird and funny things they’ve seen on their subway journeys.
In one photo, a man is seen riding the subway with a giant inflatable pizza. In another, a woman is wearing a full-body unicorn costume. And in yet another, a group of passengers are seen wearing matching dinosaur onesies.
But it’s not just costumes and props that make for subway humor. One photo shows a sign that reads “Please do not put your feet on the seat” – but someone has drawn a pair of feet on the sign itself. Another photo shows a man holding a giant bouquet of flowers with a sign that reads “I’m sorry”. What could he be sorry for?
Sometimes it’s the interactions between passengers that can be unexpected and funny. One photo shows a man sleeping on the subway with a cat curled up on his lap. In another, a group of passengers are seen singing together and playing instruments.
And of course, there are always advertisements that can add to the humor of riding on a subway. One photo shows an ad for a dating app with the tagline “Find your other half”. But someone has crossed out “other” and replaced it with “better”. Another photo shows an ad for a dentist with the tagline “Let us give you something to smile about” – but someone has added the word “not” in front of “smile”.
Overall, these 50 photos capture the diversity and entertainment value of riding on a subway. Whether you’re commuting to work or just exploring the city, you never know what weird and funny things you might come across.
