MARTA zoo exhibit: Sus scrafa seatus

October 7, 2010

It’s an urban jungle out there, and the best place to view some of our native critters is the zoo of MARTA. Today, let’s look at the exhibit of one of the more common, and annoying, species of sus scrafa seatus.


Otherwise known as the seat hog, sus scrafa seatus is a remarkable creature that appears to remain oblivious to the presence of other riders.


They stake out their claim to territory on the train or bus, be it with their over abundant property or their own person. The sus scrafa seatus shows blatant disregard for courtesy shown to their fellow inhabitants of the train. Despite the time of day or the packed nature of the train, they will not forfeit the space consumed by their person, stuff, or every growing egos.


When encountering the sus scrafa seatus in the wild, do not be afraid to ask for a place to sit. If they refuse, the next best course of action is total humiliation. Be nice, but ask them why their stuff is so important or why they feel the need to occupy two seats. Is their butt that big? O, that’s why the term is seat hog.


And remember, kids, no one likes a seat hog, so always be mindful of your fellow passengers. Or we’ll take your picture and post it on here for everyone to see.
