Hitler = Transit Fun!

August 20, 2010

One found an awesome article of vintage subway etiquette posters on Pink Tentacle.  They’re great, so check them out, but here are a few of my favorites, starting with Hitler, the seat hog.

Carrying around Japanese baby Jesus is hard work, let the White Virgin Mother sit down in priority seating.

The Savior… of lost umbrellas.

Not even Superman can save you from the train!  Or gum!

O noes!  This is what MARTA needs, kitsch.  People pay attention to, and remember, kitsch.

    Kitch is fun. We need some of it in Baltimore. Maybe mother theresa with a big bun o’ hair and saying, “please don’t urinate on the seats, hun.”

      Lord I don’t miss that place. No offense, Mark. However I will say that until a couple of years ago I didn’t know that the “hun” thing was a big inside joke. I thought that there were just a lot of friendly older ladies there who had smoked until their vocal folds turned into gummy worms.
