Subway etiquette public service announcements

New York City artist Jason Shelowitz hit a collective nerve with his spoof of MTA subway notice signs and using them as a PSA to address the annoying and impolite habits of some of his fellow straphangers. He printed 40 copies of 10 different PSAs. If you spot one, the artist encourages you to take one before the MTA does. My favorite sign by him is this one:

Nail Clipping: Under no circumstance is the Subway the right place for this. The sound is incredibly annoying and the little nail bits go flying all over the place. Keep it at home please. It’s crazy that this even needs to be mentioned.

Crazy is right. Although what’s even crazier is that there are people in the comments section of the New York Times blurb on this who are actually defending this disgusting behavior!
