A Lunatic Riding The Bus Made Some Very Good Points About Why Hammocks Should Be Allowed On The Bus

Ever since I escaped the city to raise a family and bird watch in the suburbs, I admittedly don't know much about the current state of mass transit systems. But I think the raving madman has a point since none of these signs look like a No Hammocks Allowed sign.


The first one looks like no toothbrushes are allowed, which would check out considering the oral hygiene of the people I used to share the bus with whenever I needed to take it because the subway was down. The second sign appears to ban irons which is good because those suckers can get hot! And the third I guess is no boomboxes since nobody wants to hear your music, no matter how good you think it is.

But let's be honest here. The real reason Hammock Guy was not going to lose that argument is because he made his points with passion and the bus driver was wearing a uniform that looks like it would fit me.

Ben McAdoo thinks those clothes are way too big for a leader of men (which feels like a bit of a stretch for a bus driver but I stand by it).

I'm not sure where that video was taken. The New Yorker in me who believes the entire world revolves around the five boroughs originally thought it was NYC. But the person who posted the video's Twitter name is Chillinois, which makes me think it happened in Chicago. Plus let's be honest, if that happened in New York, that hammock's straps would've been sliced after that mamaluke called himself an anaconda. 

Nonetheless, we may be entering a new age where laying down while traveling is accepted and I for one welcome this with open arms.
