They have this thing called “Poetry on the Underground.” It’s pretty cool. I think it was started in the late 80’s as a way of bringing poetry to people who might now be exposed to it other wise. I think this is pretty neat. I’ve even jotted down one or two that I wanted to read later. And the other bonus is that while you are sitting there jammed between Creepy Mc Stares-a-lot and Stinky Von Sits-too-Close you can read some lovely poems. (I know not everyone who uses public transportation is stinky/creepy but let’s be honest… those are the ones you remember.)
If you can click on the picture and read it is really is a beautiful poem. I’m just too lazy to type it out for you.
But the other (real) reason I loved riding the tube is because you get ads like this:
See? Public transportation can be both classy and funny. Don’t worry, I didn’t post a dirty picture, it’s a MAN! A man with moobs or moobies. Call them what you will … I died laughing when I saw it. Since you can’t really read what is says underneath I’ll share. The copy underneath says ”leave the cleavage to the ladies.”
Sometimes I think the British are just funnier than us.

Uh-oh, does Megan know Stefano's chest is all over public transportation in London? It must have been taken with a long distance scope by paparazzi while Megan & Stefano were on their cruise last year. Oh well. Cheers and beers and manzeers! (It's a bra for men for those who don't watch seinfeld)
