NYC Transit Says "Keep Your Hands to Yourself Perv"

The wording of this very official-looking, yet unofficial, poster created by an artist for the Metropolitan Transit Authority in New York is killing me. It starts off validating — "it's only natural to bump into each other" — and ends in all-out name-calling — "perv"!

Why not just slap on one of those passive-aggressive-but-very-effective signs that say, "Smile, you're on camera."

These are hilarious... I love the religion one and the nail clipping one too ("it's crazy that this even needs to be mentioned"... hahaha). And the garbage one... "don't be a piggy"

Takes all the fun out of commuting. :( Just kidding, now. And, yes, I've been groped myself (not BY myself, mind you.)

i love the groping one! i know it's a big problem in japan, so they have some pretty amusing "no touching" signs too

Hahaha, the rest are totally awesome too, especially since my pet peeve about the subway is the overly loud iPods.

OMG I love this! Why be passive-aggressive about it when shaming a subway pervert is so much more fun? Love love love.

I think this is great! And the whole "smile-you're-on-camera-thing" wouldn't work because there has recently been a lot of stuff in the news about how the cameras in the train stations don't work. I've never seen any cameras on the train.
