10 weird moments captured on London tubes


So with the whole ‘Women eating on the tube’ thing taking over the cyber-sphere recently, even triggering feminist protests in response, here are some examples of some much more interesting things you can see on your tube journeys. Because, come on, Emily eating a sandwich is hardly captivating.

1. Iron Mantube, london underground travel city centre england culture instagram

Iron Man seems a bit lost as he heads off to Stanmore on this tube journey, casually awaiting his stop…shouldn’t he have more important things to do? Perhaps off home after a long day of, I don’t know, being Iron Man?

2. Tube Planking

3. 101 Dalmations

Cruella Deville seems to have a new target, and apparently a well educated one. Here’s a particular dalmation on a tube journey, casually reading a book as if being on a collar and leash is the norm.

4. Mayor Tubeman

Here’s a slightly freaky looking gentleman dressed head to toe in mayor-get-up. He isn’t as crazy as he seems, as he actually works in Camden Market, but hopefully he’s ringing his bell there and not reading the Evening Standard.

5. Animal Farm

6. Underground Yoga

This cannot really be explained. Although, it does look like this man is attempting yoga on the tube. So let’s go with that. Tuga. (Tube + Yoga, geddit?)

7. Pass Out

8. Nostalgia

Pacman makes a visit to the Jubilee line and makes everyone want to return to the eighties? Hopefully he was chasing people through the carraiges, hopefully.

9. Batmen

Nobody is sure what is even happening in this image, but it appears these two gentleman haven’t quite understood what ‘come as batman’ meant on their fancy dress invites.

10. Dress Up

So again, who cares about Sandy and her packet of crisps, when these oddities are all around us.
