Most people just get on the bus and plug their earphones in, but these fine riders have turned it up to 11 by busting out some absolutely awesome bus-riding moves. Hot from our Twitter wires, may I present the three most awesome moves seen on Muni this week:
- Man in motorized wheelchair on Muni after parking his ride: “The eagle has landed!” with a jaunty thumbs up. Sir, you’re golden.
- Trio singing “Cruella Deville” on 21 Hayes.
- A passenger’s Chihuahua eating flaming hot Cheetos on the 31. Classic.
This week’s strange and wonderful Things on Muni are brought to you by @beausepher, @MichaelSwander, and @TheNightBug.
Muni stories (and winning moves) are best enjoyed in person at Muni Diaries Live. Join us on Saturday, Nov. 8, for a night of true, hilarious, weird, gross, and sweet stories that can only happen on the bus. Grab a ticket and we’ll see you there!

Rider Janis spotted more crimes against fried chicken on the 6. It’s not *that*bumpy a ride, jeez, hold the eff on to your food if you’re gonna eat on Muni.
I love fried chicken for breakfast like any normal person, but this kind of meal is probably best enjoyed in the privacy of your own home in your sweatpants, and not on Muni. Via the Muni Diaries Facebook page, Muni rider Kealani says,
Nothing says Muni like someone dropping fried chicken on your leg at 10 a.m.
I mean, what’s the right thing to do here, pick it up off your lap and give it back to the person? Or take a picture of it and send it to Muni Diaries? (Rhetorical question, you guys!)
Or are you just happy to see me?
Muni Metro is always happy to see you, if you know what I mean.

From Muni rider Ramona, overheard on the in-bound 38:
Woman on phone, on bus:
“Well, sometimes you’re mean.”
“No, you’re not a meme. You’re M-E-A-N.”
Damn. I really want to be a meme too.

It’s not just smells, anger, and despair. Muni is also a roving audio laboratory, much to the delight and chagrin of us all.
These fellow Muni riders clued us in some things they overheard on Muni this week:
- OH on Muni: “My cheek is sweating up my cellphone screen”
- [on the J] Guy on phone: Yes but he’s vegan and I’m not very vegan-friendly.
- Overheard at the #Muni stop: THIS IS THE LIVING WAGE!
- OH: and he was programming on a go cart-he’s that badass, oh and he has a masters too. never forgetting headphones again
All righty then.

I love so many things about this drawing by Muni rider John. The fact that it explains everything might be the least interesting thing about it. The Devil wearing his name in two languages might be my favorite.
Note that the “bus” is moving backwards, which sounds about right most days. “Mostly late or delayed.” Yep.
