Public transportation is vital and important for many reasons.

One of those reasons is that everyone can travel on the subway. And when I say everyone, I mean it.

These are the weirdest things people have ever witnessed on the subway.

Rocking horse

Now, this is something you don't see every day. Or maybe you do if you regularly commute with this iconic pair.

Peacock

via: Reddit

Yes, that is a man with a giant pet peacock. Notice how no one around him seems to care at all. That's how you know you're in New York.

Dog in a bag

via: Reddit

In New York, dogs aren't allowed on the subway unless they're in a bag. This is a brilliant loophole.

Tree man

I have so many questions, and chief among them is how he can see through those leaves? He's clearly looking at his phone!

Emotional advice

via: Reddit

There's an 11-year-old kid who sits in a subway station in New York and sells emotional advice. Which is honestly the best thing in the world and I would pay for it.

Bubble hat

This woman is wearing a hat made out of bubble wrap, and I simultaneously want to steal it for myself and pop every bubble and destroy it.

Facehugger

What? It keeps her face warm.

Blue man

This, my friends, is what we call quite a lewk. Is this like, a character from Pan's Labyrinth or something?

Furry legs

via: Reddit

He's business on top, hairy on the bottom. This is like if Chewbacca got a job selling insurance.

Fox on board

via: Reddit

No biggie, just a guy and his fox riding the subway. The lady next to him doesn't even notice.

Pink chicken

Pink chicken sounds like a weird euphemism for something, but it isn't. It's just what's on the subway right now. Eating Cheerios.

Dino guys

via: Reddit

I am a big fan of the "little legs on an animal to make it look like you're riding it" costumes. They're always hilarious.

Gaming

This person has a whole gaming console set up on the train. The worst part is he only has to go three stops.

Wolfman

via: Reddit

Judging by the pumpkin bucket under him, maybe this was Halloween? And thus not as weird?

Fashion icon

That's a lot of soda cans that he had to drink to make that outfit. No matter how weird it is, it is impressive.

Air conditioning

No matter what season it is, the subway is a hot yoga studio. This might seem ridiculous, but it's actually the most brilliant idea I've seen in a long time.

The bee man

That is a man, on the subway, with a colony of bees. Let's hope it doesn't accidentally fall and break open!

Midnight train

via: Reddit

This is the cutest photo ever. But the real miracle is how was there that much empty space on the train?

Rough night

I doubt that this is how this guy hoped his night would end. Something went terribly wrong.

Alien

via: Reddit

This is quite an outfit. It looks like something an alien would wear if they were trying to look human but clearly didn't know how real people dressed.

Weasel

That is a majestic taxidermied weasel (I think? I'm not an animal expert.) And honestly, that's probably not even the weirdest thing those people had seen on the subway that week.

Fish shoes

These aren't some like, cute shoes with cute little fishies on them. This is like...weird.

Bottles on bottles

via: Reddit

Well, that's one way to get a whole section of the subway to yourself. That's a lot of bottles.

Nap sling

Look, when you come across a genius, don't make fun of them. Bow down to them.

Face mask

Call me crazy, but I don't think that's what those masks are supposed to be used for. I also don't think that it would help that much. It's very see-through.

Panties

Is it weird if I tap him on the shoulder and ask him where he got his lacy undies? They're cute!

Fancy furry

via: Twitter

Is that a squirrel? In a top hat? And a bow tie? Holding an iPad? OK, just making sure.

Stretching

What? He's just stretching. Gotta get a workout in when you can.

Fancy burglar

This is weird, but it's made a million times weirder by his posture. He's sitting up so straight. Like, weirdly straight.

Subway funeral

Sure, he might be dead, but he's still a person. That's one subway fare, please.

Leaf hat

It's a giant leaf hat! What questions could you possibly have?

Turtle on a leash

Quick, put that turtle on a leash before it runs away! *world's longest eye roll*

Duck on a train

via: Twitter

Was the duck...alone? Because I love ducks, and this is a cute one, and I need another pet.

Bananas on a leash

Forget the turtle on a leash. Bananas are the most absurd thing you can put on a leash.

Train meeting

via: Reddit

When you're stuck on the train, and you have a meeting planned, you're gonna have your meeting. This is just resourcefulness.

Baby doll

I am confused and scared about this! Is it a doll? Is it a real baby in a mask? I can't decide what's more disturbing!

TV head

via: Reddit

You know, my mom always warned me that if I watched too much television, I would turn into one, but I never believed her...until now.

Ho ho ho

Wow. If Santa looked like that, I would believe in him.

Pissing in the subway station

via: Reddit

Ohhhhhh, so that's why subway stations always smell like pee. I get it now.

Back in town

I found him, guys. The coolest man alive. Share this with your friend who always sends you weird pics of stuff on the subway!
