This Has Got to Be the Worst Case of Male Subway Stance Ever


If you’ve ridden on public transit, chances are that you’ve encountered at least one case of Widespread Leg Subway Stance, a terrible behavioral defect that affects thousands of men, ages 12 to infinity. Well, Gothamist has found what might be the worst incident of WLSS of all time — and it’s more extreme than anything we’ve ever fathomed.

From Gothamist:

We’ve tackled the subject of Male Leg Spreading before, but never quite this wide: we don’t think the gentleman in the photo above, who was spotted on a Brooklyn-bound C train this week, could possibly get any wider without dislocating a hip. He takes man sitting to the extreme, until it practically ventures into subway yoga.

You know, I’d be annoyed if I wasn’t so impressed by his flexibility. This man doesn’t belong on the subway, he belongs in the gymnasium!
