NYC to clamp down on big-balls-riding dudes

Spread-nuts-shaming is about to become real, you guys. Buzzfeed has story of New York City’s plan to combat this terrible scourge on society:
“The MTA, which manages New York City’s subways and buses, will launch an awareness campaign in January to stop people from taking up too much space on the seats.
“The campaign, in part, will target man spreaders: people who spread their legs wide open, even on crowded trains, MTA spokesperson Kevin Ortiz told BuzzFeed News.”
Your only excuse is that you’re saving room down there for a cat.
Also, NYC’s MTA will target ball-spreaders’ partners in terribleness: people who don’t take their backpacks off on crowded transit vehicles. Hooray!
Finally. New York follows a less-official attempt to stanch this behavior in Boston in 2009. Will SFMTA follow suit? We can only hope.

Where do we come down on the issue of aisle-seat sitters who don’t scoot over?
Dude I love your title. I think you would have to have a serious medical condition if your balls are so big as to need that much room. Elephantitus of the testicles or something. That’s like Guinness Book of World Record stuff right there.
Seriously ninja turtles are way worse. I’ve never seen a spreader not give up space to someone who wanted a seat.
Ball-spreaders get a ball-kicking.
Maybe they’re saving room for cats. http://savingroomforcats.tumblr.com
