ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
An anonymous -- but inspired -- prankster has affixed some helpful addenda to the usual London Underground official signage on various tube-trains, as are documented in this Imgur photoset.
London Underground prank stickers
All good, but the tipped-in imaginary stations on the route diagrams are the best.
Was there a previous posting of this? I can’t find it on the site.
Yes. And I can’t find it either.
It turned up 404 when I chased my comment on it before.
Maybe I had done to good a job being concern troll.
I had the same thought.
I thought my concern troll parody was sufficiently over the top not to be mistaken for the real thing.
It said “Subway” rather than “Underground” so was probably quickly removed before all us Brits moaned
And the write up begged for Concern Trolling…
They never let us have any fun.
In a world where people listen to the GPS and turn into rivers, posting signs could lead to people doing stupid things…
Now the ultimate sticker for these would have a small camera attached so you could see when people notice it…
Aww you deleted the SEO spammer before I could be all rude and stuff….
Never let me have ANY fun… *cry*
If you respond to them, you anchor the meta-portion of the comment even if it’s deleted, which usually means leaving a link to an attack site.
The more I know…. *cues rainbow*
cause I has that power ;)
These are fantastic! But couldn’t the camera-person stand, oh I don’t know, in front of the stickers?
The camera person was sitting in the special drunk seat.
Shades of Markoff Chaney…
Yep, that was my first thought too. Long live the Mgt!
I’m going to be very pedantic and point out that the top photograph is not from the London Underground, but a suburban train (or possibly the Gatwick [Airport] Express).
