Update (6:21 p.m., Friday): Dude didn’t limit himself to the 1-California. He appears to be on a mission, expanding to the 47-Van Ness and 38-Geary, at least. He appears to be on a mission, however ballsy (literally!):

Muni rider Rebecca: “Never a dull moment #living in #SF. My morning #treat on #SFMUNI #BusLine47 Van Ness. All he had was a #sock on his #penis and #shoes!”

And Muni driver Josh says, “This dude rode on my 38 Geary bus yesterday…”

Original: Riders on the 1-California bus yesterday afternoon got to know one of their fellow passengers far better than they wanted to when the man stripped naked and put a sock over his penis.

According to SF Weekly’s The Snitch, the Muni driver stopped the bus and demanded that the man put his clothes back. The man refused, and police were called. Passengers boarded another bus after a delay of about an hour. The 19-year-old man eventually put his clothes back on and was not arrested.

KTVU has NSFW footage of the incident showing the scantily clad fellow waving, posing for onlookers and explaining why nothing he did was illegal. It’s true what they say: The best-looking Muni riders, ponytail and penis socks included, can be found on the 1-California.

Sit right down and you’ll hear the tale of beloved Muni Diaries alum Jesse James (current holder of the Muni haiku champion belt) and how he went from niche Amazon order to AT&T Park and back home again. Hilarity and perhaps a life lesson or two ensue.

Jesse told his story on stage at Muni Diaries Live in early April. Catch up on all the MDL action over the years. You won’t be sorry.

Post-holiday party Muni surprise


My company makes us play bingo at the holiday party in order to try to win our annual bonus. First-world problems, to be sure, but there you go.

A few weeks ago, I was talking with a coworker about the party the next day. Little did I know what I was in for.

“Get this—[friend in common] found a Golden Ticket in her bag the next day. I wonder if it was for one of the big prizes?! She’s hoping she can still redeem it…

The only thing I found in my bag was a business card with a picture of a half-naked, grinning, flexing man on it. Yep, the creeper on my bus ride home slipped that nice prize in.”


The kids are doin’ it again


Not that, pervert! Someone probably under the age of 19 did a number on this sign. I suppose the new message retains the severity and weight of the original, eh?

Via Muni rider Adam: “outrageous restriction on #sfmuni drivers as seen on the 38″

A Flower Grows on Muni


Are you a glass-half-empty type? Of course you are. You live in San Francisco. You ride Muni. You have company.

But even for the most cynical among us, this submission from Muni rider D is cute, fluffy, and vaguely hopeful:

“As I was riding home on an outbound 38 Geary yesterday I glanced out the window and spotted this rather unusual ‘tag.'”

Maybe it was fertilized by, well, never mind.
