Friday Funny: Subway Signage Prankster Disrupts Commute Drudgery

There’s a note of melancholy over the human condition in the work of a prankster who has been plastering satirical images and messages around cars on the London Underground.

Among the prankster’s diverse portfolio of signage tomfoolery on the London Underground: labels showing transfers to “Purgatory,” “Heaven,” and “Hell;” a sign informing passengers that “iPods must be worn at all times;” and another sign reading, “Don’t acknowledge fellow passengers or sustain eye contact beyond 2 seconds. Please respect urban solitude.” 

And because it’s London, another sign reserving a seat for the monarchy: “Royal Seat by appointment to Her Majesty Queen’s bottom.”

Full Story: Someone has made fake London Underground signs, and whoever did it is a ruddy genius.
