The newest addition to our long-running Muni Strange Cargo report: miniature bench and a regular-size lamp. A Craigslist used-furniture shopping trip, perhaps?
This is so next-level. Clara sent this to us via Twitter. “on the T, one man’s recycling is another man’s treasure.” Indeed.
Other strange cargo spotted on Muni: trampoline, a ladder, and who could forget the GIANT STYROFOAM OMG!?
Photog David L. describes the following scene:
The woman behind me was talking on a cellphone the entire trip (Yapper alert!) with a creepy ventriloquist’s dummy on her lap. Not only was she talking on the phone, but she occasionally was talking in what I assumed was the dummy’s voice as well.
We’d have that look on our face, too, if confronted by such a tragedy. Thanks, David!
@RitaBookNews tweeted us this gem the other day, with this title: “Woman brings a huge, life-size piece of Styrofoam on Muni?”
We lament the 500 breaches of Muni etiquette that flew out the window so this thing could have a seat(s). But it does look damned comical just sitting there. Perhaps these are the beginnings of a Halloween costume? It reminded me of Ol’ Drippy from Aqua Teen Hunger Force in its blobularness.
Spotted something cool (balloon animals) or ridiculous (see attached) on your ride? Talk to us about it @munidiaries.
“Dude is just taking his old Brave Little Toaster-style toaster for a lil Muni ride,” says @lissaandy.
File this under “Strange Muni Cargo,” along with a bar chair, Christmas tree, and a balloon circus. No biggie.
What other strange cargo have you seen on the bus? We can’t get enough of them!
I guess when you go on a shopping spree at Paxton Gate, you have to haul it home somehow. Photo by Marcel Cortez.
What strange and surreal things did you see on Muni today?
