Category Archives: Eating food on MTA bus


Make no mistake. has been a huge success.

However, a website that generally grosses people out doesn’t get bookmarked or visited often.

Since we launched in 2009, the press coverage has been hilarious.


If you don’t think this very website was discussed in top brass MTA  meetings behind closed doors, you’re nuts.

I’m sure they would NEVER admit to it. But they did. F you, Joe Lhota. You troll. Please don’t let this pompous dbag become our next mayor. Vote for the other candidate.

So here’s the deal: This website lives on. I have no plans to make it disappear.


GO FOR IT! Post your photos freely, and be be creative with your captions.

Facebook is way more fun anyway. Spread the word, tell your other disgusted friends to like us on facebook, and let’s grow over there.

Trapped on the M66

Anonymously submitted. It’s an epic battle of the odors. McDonald’s vs. Chinese food. Wonder which one won?

Anonymous Action

We get a lot of anonymous submissions, including this pair of gems, cleverly entitled MONEYSHOT ON THE M66

Wow. Deep. Completely unrelated, this anonymously submitted tale. Enjoy. We did:

I wish I knew about this site last week.

First off, thank you! There is nothing more foul than inconsiderate assholes eating on the train, unless, of course, that person has a strange OCD eating habit/ bulimia.
I had the pleasure, last Wednesday night 9ish on the R train into Queens, of sitting across from a woman eating an apple. Well, she wasn’t exactly eating an apple, but chewing the apple and spitting the chewed apple into a clear plastic zip-lock bag. I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP. At first I thought she wasn’t actually swallowing any of the apple, but once she finished “chewing” it, she began to cough – hysterically – and regurgitate little bits of apple onto the subway floor. She proceeded to put the zip-lock bag of chewed apple into her large travel bag on wheels.
It didn’t end there. She then pulls a cup of yogurt out of her large bag, and inhales it, like nothing I have ever seen, and then methodically scrapes the container…cue hysterical coughing attempts to not vomit yogurt all over subway floor.
All of the “eating” is spliced with chugging ice water.
This was a fairly crowded subway car, which OF COURSE, crawled beneath the East River at 5 MPH, but everyone on the train was horrified. 
This is not the first time I have seen someone binging and borderline-purging on a subway car. 
I am still baffled as to why people think they can not only eat, but engage in eating-disordered behavior on the train.
Not sure what the point is, sending this very true and disturbing experience into Perhaps the woman will see my report, and realized how thoroughly disturbed she actually is.
Keep up the good work, next time I’ll have the balls to take a photo.
If you do decide to use this on the site, please don’t post my name – thanks, boss.

Why not just take a dump on the bus too?

Manhattan Mike writes “On brand new M101 bus. It still has new bus smell but that’s slowly being removed by all these vile a-holes that leave things like SUNFLOWER SEED SHELLS behind. F’ing Gross!”

Bus Pigs


As if riding the bus isn’t irritating enough, you make the regrettable mistake of breathing in and catching a whiff of lunch. Thanks for that. Really.


This one had to be edited. Lest anyone think we were trying to pull an “upskirt.” Uh, no.

Your Dinner Date!!

Thanks to the ever vigilant GOTHAMIST for this.

Also, I know I’ve been slacking lately. Moving sucks. Also been very busy at real job.

Rest assured, your submissions are safe in the PigBox. I have been accumulating quite a few myself.

I hope to get back to regular posting by April…..and if I get some time before then I’ll throw a few gems up.

MTA Bus gets it right?

Thanks to our friends at SEATHOGS for this sign. As usual, we agree with the “no eating” but protest the anti-beverage sentiment.

Everyone should be allowed all beverages everywhere, particularly alcoholic ones.

70’s Pig gets SCHOOLED

This 70’s Train Pig was annoyingly reading the woman’s newspaper over her shoulder while spewing crumbs all over her coat.

And THEN……the shocking climax of his Piggery is called OUT!

Where have the public service announcements with attitude gone?

Thanks to Rachel for finding this classic.

M15 Madness

This is what it looks like when a vile, disgusting monster decides to leave its half-eaten meal on the bus when it leaves. This plate of crap stunk like crazy. I had to find another seat. Eventually, a woman who wanted the seat picked up the container while shaking her head in disgust, snapped the meal closed, and relocated it to the floor so that she could be seated.
