Really, CTA?  You do realize people are reading this on a train, right?  Do you really think people who own cars are taking public transportation for the fun of it?  You’re right – I don’t want to shell out $57 for a city sticker, and moving my car on street cleaning day IS SUCH A PAIN.  Here, let me donate my car instead.  For free.  In this economy.  FAIL.

I was in Boston last week for the Women in Comedy Festival (where I presented a workshop) and saw this on my way back to the hotel on the red line at the Charles/MGH stop.  I don’t know about you, but I’d sure like to see a Passenger Ass Stance.

Return of the eyebrows

Chicago suburb, October 2011
