WTF: Weirdness on Muni

Brass section represented on Muni


Muni rider Ruth recently spotted this fine fellow and his travel companion, a tuba sousaphone. It made me want to gather all the people we’ve featured over the years on Muni with musical instruments (see below). They could have a show on a moving Muni vehicle. Or something.

Warriors Fan Celebrates on Top of Moving Muni Bus

Not letting the poor behaviors of Giants fanatics show them up, some Warrior fans took to the streets to show how much they love Dub Nation, one of them by dancing on top of a moving Muni bus. Muni Diaries editor Jeff saw this bus-top dancer. Just a couple of hundreds of volts above your head, no big deal, right, guys?

Over at SFist, Jay Barmann has a blow-by-blow of last night’s celebration.

And the San Francisco Chronicle’s Vivian Ho captured some more of the craziness in the Mission.

At least no buses were set on fire. And thankfully none of this should end up in our top WTF moment of the year, right?

Smoking WUT on Muni?


This, from Muni rider Thomas: “I was just riding the 49 from Van Ness and McAllister. Down to City College for class. And these dudes get on at 16th and Mission. This fool pulls out a crak pipe [sic] and takes a puff! No one wants their second hand meth smoke!”

While we can’t be sure what these fellas are smokin’, we just know it ain’t cool.

Just the other night, a wasted guy got on my and Tara’s 49 with a lit cigarette. I side-eyes’d him like you do, and he mumbled this and that back. Then some guys behind him told him to put it out. “It’s cool that you’re smoking, but no one on this bus likes the smell.”

We know it’s not exactly a totally new phenomenon, people smoking on the bus. But, SRSLY?
