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.


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.

MTA Frightfest

This epic Halloween Frightfest is described by the angry Pigparazzi:

amazing, i find this one guy munching away on a smelly tuna sandwich then the next thing you know another trainpig comes on with a really smelly dish of ziti.  this guy with the ziti just shoveled that stuff in his mouth while the whole train car completely stunk from tuna and nasty ziti.  that guy was eating the ziti like it was the first time he ever ate anything.  why can’t they pass that law banning these pigs from ruining our ride.  the subways are terrible enough, why do we have to endure these nasty munchers. 



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 trainpigs.com. 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.

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.


New from the MTA: KITCHEN CAR

This was anonymously submitted, and inspired us here at trainpigs.com to get back to work. We’ve been crazy busy with real life stuff.

Just when you think you’ve seen it all…..a cutting board?? Onions???

What’s in the bag, a frying pan and hot plate?!?!?!

The time has come to get back to exposing this vile behavior.

Anyone want to try and defend this classy lady?!

Oh. This is supposed to be “performance art”. Whatever. Take your cutting board back to your TROLL HOLE, woman.

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.
