The MetroRiderLA blog has spotted and photographed speech bubbles populating the Civic Center Red Line Metro stop. Apparently, the MTA thinks that this will make the Metro station more friendly and we couldn't agree more. Who doesn't like speech bubbles attached to inanimate objects. And even better than that, how about singing Muppets riding the subway in a dystopian world, wearing ragged looking clothing and being squeezed into an unfriendly underground tube circa 1970's New York City. If the monorail can have a song, so can the subway. YouTube video via Longitudinal Slum.
