Guy ‘blows’ attempt to be courteous on Muni


We’re not always treated to a one-two rudeness punch, but there are some very special Muni riders out there.

Rider Mark, intrepid reporter in the field, says, “On the 9L [recently]…this guy blew his nose into his hand and smeared it all over that blue emergency seat. Then he moved across the aisle and told some lady to sit over there.”

Well, then. Regular rider-readers will know how protective people are of the smells-like-Christmas-morning seats on new Muni buses. Still others will know that you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t sometimes when it comes to public nose-blowing.

We’ll side with polite nose-blowing, given the apparent alternative.

Muni Diaries Live alum Dhaya Lakshminarayanan live this Friday in Oakland

The Formula  March 27th

If for whatever you reason you missed Muni Diaries Live in November, well, two things: Our next show is right around the corner, on April 18 (tickets!).

Secondly, and the reason we’re all gathered here today, you missed out on one of the smartest, funniest comedians this side of the M-I-S-S-I-S-S-I-P-P-I: Dhaya Lakshminarayanan. It was Dhaya whose dad become all of our collective hero when he misheard the Muni intercom to say, “Exit through the weirdos.” Yes, exactly, Mr. Lakshminarayanan.

Dhaya and some other funny ladies will dish out the laughs tomorrow night at Oakland’s XOXO Nightclub. You should totally go and laugh so hard you cry and cough stuff up.

But don’t just take our word for it. Read what the East Bay Express had to say about Dhaya, Karinda Dobbins, and Aundré Herron, and other’s comedy.

Seatless in San Francisco


We think this BART car has made itself perfectly clear. It absolutely, most definitely, does not want you to sit down. Not that you were planning to anyway.

On Muni, Please hold on . . .


Please hold on, indeed: especially when the cargo is this precious. Sudden stops (of my HEART) might also be necessary. I don’t have anything for the “take one” sign, because as much as I’d like to, it might make this guy and his dog sad.

Many Muni riders say dog is their copilot on local transit. Some might even say cat is their copilot, while others might say “a motherfucking lizard is chilling on 6-Parnassus and thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster for making it so.”
