Alright this didn’t happen on the train, it happened on the bus–but so what? As I thought to make a whole new Category I said to myself, “self, how often do you take the bus?” Surprisingly (lie) self said, “not often, not often at all.” A dear friend of mine was fortunate enough to witness this comedic gem so I felt as if it was my duty to spread the hilarty. So with the wind behind me, and my fingers storming away, out came the latest Subway Chronicle! Alas!
Clearly Subway [no, not the train system] was onto something when the folks over in marketing pushed through this little 5 Dollar Foot long Jingle, but who would’ve thought this could go international?!
Here is the story as it was told to me:
So I’m on the bus and this random guy comes on singing that stupid Subway song…”Five!…Five Dollar!…Five Dollar Foot loooong”.. PMO! As he goes to take his seat he continues to sing the song the whole time. Finally he sits down behind a Spanish lady and her child then does the unthinkable. Out of nowhere comes, “Cinco!..Cinco Peso!….Cinco Peso FOOT LOOONG!.”
If I was on this bus I would’ve erupted in laughter, maybe even began the spanglish sing-along. What would possess a man to perform such a ridiculous act? Things like this make me want to take the bus more often as the Subway hasn’t been the most active as of late. Bums are quiet, people are behaving…nothing much to see these days. I bet when it gets warmer everyone will start with their shenanigans again.
Bring on the warm weathered tomfoolery!
