Looks like humans aren’t the only species that like to get a little shut eye on the bus. Last week, a fox snuck onto a city bus in Ottawa, Canada, and fell asleep in a seat in the back, before an employee noticed and snapped a picture (seen above). According to news reports, the bus had been parked in a garage for maintenance at the time and the fox got in through an open door. It ran off when officers boarded the bus to take a look at it.
The photo, which quickly became a hit on social media, shows the fox sleeping peacefully, all curled up and cute. If you could only say the same for the guy passed out on Muni next to you.
It’s not every day that you spot the Caped Crusader on your way to work. In fact, it happened yesterday to our friend We Built This City (above).
No bigs, you guys. Just the Biebs playing Candy Crush on a Muni Metro train.

In a major blow to aspiring pop stars, the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba, is considering new law that would make it illegal to sing or otherwise perform music aboard its city buses. According to the Toronto Sun, anyone who sings, busks, or plays musical instruments aboard transit vehicles could face a fine of $100 plus court costs under the proposed bylaw.
Winnipeg Mayor Sam Katz told the paper the law is intended to prevent disturbances, noting that it “is important for people to enjoy their trip on public transit.”
Must be nice when your biggest transit problem is impromptu concerts.
Though bleary-eyed commuters here in SF might have taken solace in this law during a kid-powered recorder performance on the bus (true story), you will take our FLUTE CANE CONCERTS or our Pantera covers from our cold dead hands.
