The NYC Subway: (Almost) Every Reality Show Rolled Into One
|April 19, 2011||Posted by billyrob under pop culture||
For that price, you get to
your destination in style AND
you get to enjoy
free, non-stop reality shows.
The Biggest Loser:
There’s ALWAYS a fat guy taking up
two or sometimes three seats.
And of course eating something gross.
Singers are everywhere…
and their fellow riders are
tougher judges than J-Lo and crew.
The grand prize sucks, too…
Some loose change.
There’s always some big brother
blocking the closing doors.
Top Chef :
I have never seen anyone
cooking on the train (yet)
but I have seen my share of steak knives.
Dancing With The Stars:
Okay this may be a stretch
but it’s always a challenge
to get down those crowded stairs
to catch a train…or to get
up the stairs so you can get
to the street.
I call this “Dancing With The Stairs.”
What Not To Wear:
On average there are 10 people per car
whose wardrobe fits into this category.
In fact, one of those might be you.
Deal Or No Deal:
Drug dealers on the subway have no time
for chit-chat. It’s as simple as “What will it be: Deal or no deal?”
America’s Got Talent:
…but nothing compared to the talent
I’ve witnessed on the subway.
Eating a full Chinese food meal
standing up on a packed train
isn’t as easy as it looks.
Try it some time…and report back to me.
Or how about a transvestite whistling
“Like a Virgin?”
Or a blind guy walking between cars?
It goes on and on…
