TRAIN PIGS FORMAT CHANGE

Make no mistake. trainpigs.com 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.

WE GOT NOTICED.

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.

If you’d like to put up your Pigs, HEAD OVER TO THE OFFICIAL TRAIN PIGS FACEBOOK PAGE.

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.

Thanks.

MTA SHUTDOWN: OPEN BAR PARTY FOR RATS!

“Sorry pal…..rats only.”

Sandy, Irene, what’s the diff?

Enjoy this classic post.

This one has lots of funny rat videos.

Click here for up to the minute info on that bitch Sandy.

How was your Memorial Day weekend?

Figured we’d take this opportunity to remember one of the motivating factors to keep running this website that barely anyone seems to care about. The enormous vermin that will one day start feeding on passengers. These great shots are courtesy of our pals at the amazing seathogs.com.

Keep eating down there, trolls. PREMIER LHOTA of the MTA wants you to.

VILE.

Your Dinner Date!!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

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.

Thanks!

OFFICIAL STATEMENT FOR THE PRESS

trainpigs.com is thrilled that a team of Senators have banded together in an attempt to take back our subway. The inconsiderate people who eat entire meals with no regard for their fellow commuters spread food and garbage everywhere. Their ignorance has made the rats larger and bolder than ever. It’s time to put an end to this before the actual vermin join the criminals in stealing your iPhones.

Love,

Head Pigparazzi in Charge

RAT ALERT: THEY WILL ATTACK YOU

We have kind of been talking about this for the past few years on this website. Rats have become increasingly violent and aggressive in the subway.

Why?

Because they are getting a lot of food. All the time.

They are getting bigger and stronger.

As BORAT would say: “Strong like bull, good with plow.

When I was a kid riding the subway to school every day, I saw rats. Sure. They have always been there. Did I ever see one on a platform? No. Did I ever feel like I was about to be attacked by a rat? No.

Here’s the press on the rat attack, comment on their articles and tell them why this happened (duh):

MTA SHUTDOWN: OPEN BAR PARTY FOR RATS

“Sorry pal, rats only.”

(Updated: 8/28/11 2:09PM)

Rat-A-Palooza 2011 is in full effect during Hurricane Irene and beyond!

With no end in sight to the MTA shutdown, the GIANT RAT OPEN BAR FIESTA continues as the MTA has some real work to do pumping out an assload of water.

These videos don’t even do justice to DAY TWO of the RAT FIESTA. It’s probably like a Camelbeach Rodent Waterpark down there right now!

And finally…..yeah this won’t happen during the shutdown (assuming the MTA bothers to remove the unconscious), but it is a classic:

Bench Pigs: A Vile Saga

A lot of people like to rationalize this behavior. I hear “oh but at least it’s not IN the subway car it’s just the platform it’s fine.”

Really now. Don’t you remember when these bastards were terrified of the platform? Look at how close I got.

Pretty soon they will be pouncing on Pigs like this. They will shred your flesh and drink your blood. Bon Appetit!
