Friday Funny: Souvenir Photos of Your New York City Bus Ride
ClickHole, owned under the umbrella of Onion, Inc. (so you get the idea about the thorough commitment to tomfoolery that follows), imagines a world where passengers on MTA buses in New York City can pay to have their photos taken like tourists in a theme park.
Millions of residents rely on New York City’s massive public transit network, but instead of just doing the bare minimum to keep it all going, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority is upgrading its services with its riders firmly in mind: Bus passengers in all five boroughs now can purchase a souvenir photograph to remember their ride.
ClickHole greats this totally face new story with superlatives like "Other cities take note!" and ""now this is public transit done right." Thus we'll have to assume that ClickHole is not only satirizing the experience of riding buses in New York, but also satirizing the uncritical exuberance that transit advocates are sometimes capable of in reaction to new transit technologies.
